Cooler Master Launches ELV8 Universal Graphics Card Holder

Cooler Master, a global leader in designing and manufacturing innovative computer components introduces the ELV8 Universal Graphics Card Holder. Featuring vibrant RGB lighting, the ELV8 features a sleek design alternative to the traditional vertical GPU holder. The ELV8 features an elegant design equipped with an addressable RGB strip that illuminates the aesthetics of your PC build. Designed to enhance overall user experience, the ELV8 is compatible with major motherboard manufacturers and can sync with RGB-ready software.

The GPU holder is designed to attach to the motherboard's PCI-E slot, allowing a wide range of case compatibility. The ELV8's adjustable supporter bracket accommodates graphics cards of all sizes, allowing builders the freedom of choice. The ELV8 prevents the GPU from potential long-usage damage, including possible bending and sagging. Additionally, the GPU holder reduces stress on the motherboard PCI-E slot by supporting the GPU's overall weight.
Collaboration for Excellence
The ELV8 was designed in collaboration with renowned PC modder and builder, TantricModz.

The ELV8 Universal Graphics Card Holder will be available for purchase on October 7, 2019 on Amazon and Newegg for $24.99.

I'd rather just do a riser at that price point.

Khek. I'll just slide in a cute chibi or a doll oops I meant action figure instead of wasting $25 on a piece of rainbow light metal.

Hell, some cards already come with them included now iirc.

If your GPU won't have sag, this will definitely have it. Imagine your GPU straight then a bar under slightly down.

It's sad that products like this need to exist in the first place, but all of the tier-1 vendors are guilty of putting hillariously heavy coolers on long cards with minimal structural support, just to save a few bucks and offer a 'discount' model.

I suspect their excuse is "but it's for waterblock; nobody is really going to use the attached cooler, right?"

These have existed on amazon for less than $10 for a while now. If you're going to get one, don't waste your money on the CM branded one, they're all just a slim bar of metal.

$12.99 would have been more sensible.

$2 for a small piece of slotted bar stock
$1.29 for an rgb led w/ power lead
$1.59 for a can of spray paint...
$2 for 5 mins of (far east) labor

I guess the extra $18 is to cover the extensive R&D & marketing costs......

...am I supposed to pronounce this as "elve 8"? Or wouldn't it be "elves 8"? Or did they mean "elf 8"?

Why did they call it that anyway? Is "Elves 8" maybe somebody's favorite Christmas movie over in the marketing office? Did they really need to make 8 movies about elves? I've never even seen or heard of the first one! A movie like that can't be good enough to name a product after. I don't even see any elves on it! What a strange decision.

If it were me I would've called it "Elev8". That makes a lot more sense. Though you'd have to choke me into making the concession of using numbers instead of letters. And then in respite I'd insist on "3l3v8" instead. Cuz half stupid isn't smart enough to do good anyway... might as well drive all the way into stupid town where there are at least things happening.

Seeing stuff like this, I just picture a gaggle of workers scrounging something together so that nobody catches onto the fact that they're not actually pulling weight.

Gotta admit it looks good. Still, 25$ for this is insane.

PC brands taking cheap items, slapping their label on it an doubling the price is just par for the course. I still have no idea why any idiot would buy a PC brand's rgb LEDs when you can buy generic LEDs for a quarter of the price.... But then again, as I've observed numerous times, the PC community seems to be completely unaware of somethings existence until Corsair or Phanteks slaps their sticker on it.... Idiots

My card is trislot and has no sag, it is Tier 1.

In case it wasn't already clear, I'm talking about those bottom-of-the-range models with no backplate and large, heavy coolers supported solely by the four screws around the GPU core.

IMO they're unsuitable for use in a tower-style case and only watercooling folk who will strip the air cooler before use need apply.
They'd probably fare okay as air coolers in horizontal HTPC-style cases, or these new PCI-e extension cables to vertical slots added to some of the more bling cases now.
