Graphics Cards mounted upside down?

Depending on the card you may be able to get a backplate for it, which can fix the sag.

On further research, turns out Graphics Card Sag (I'm gonna call this GCS for short) is quite a common thing especially with larger cards.

I've read some people use chopsticks to prop their cards up if they sag. Funny, eh? Learn something new everyday...


I tie a piece of fishing line to the corner of the card, every card i've bought has a tiny hole there, and tie the other end to a random part of my case. Keeps the card from sagging. I'm pretty sure the card would be fine in a year or two without doing this, but it was keeping me up at night, imagining the stress put on my poor motherboard.

Power Color to the rescue for graphics card sag!!

I refuse to get it because it isn't the robot in the picture.
