I just noticed this on my asus gtx970 Strix with DCUII cooler. I guess they really don't care about longevity and detail oriented design these days? How long under stress until some traces break and the card fails?

I'm looking into a support bracket now.

An aftermarket backplate would help immensely. A number can usually be found on eBay by custom makers.

That said, using a clear zip tie attached to something above it, or something like a drinking straw cut to length below it to support it are both cheaper but effective solutions.

Can you get a larger image? That doesn't quite look like it's entirely due sagging to me, are the pci slots aligned properly with the case? Looking at it seems like where the card mounts to the case is not aligned and above the pci slot on the mb.

Edit: gdi,

Edit #2: I'm going to have to change my opinon, just played around my strix card and the back plate it comes with very sturdy, I'm now positive that is flex we're looking at and not sagging.

Everything's aligned perfectly, the card is clearly sagging. There's about 1cm of droop in the front left corner that's relieved by lifting.

The DCUII cooler is clearly too heavy and this design is lacking an adequate backplate :mad: I'll see what I can find to support it.

Here's a bigger pic. Zoom in and see the flex. The pcie slot it's in lines up perfectley with the edge of the pci slot in the case.

I've always built my rigs with it on its side and made sure the screws were pretty tight. The only time I had really bad sag was when i used only one screw.

Thanks for the bigger image but it's difficult to claim the sag is purely due to the weight of the cooler as the sound card you have installed on the bottom slot is flexing a bit also.

Nah, the usb3.0 plug below the end of the soundcard is pushing upward on it slightly otherwise it's true with the mobo and case. I could care less about the tiny, cheap soundcard. Its only purpose is for legal DTS Connect. The difference between the soundcard and gpu is the huge sag being experienced by the gpu.

You guys claiming it's not sag are hilarious :roll:

Those 970 strix cards all do that. They are pretty damn terrible for PCB sag. That being said if it works who cares?

Wow that's some sag :laugh:. Did you move or transport the PC a lot, or did it stand around mostly? I'm curious if that has to do with increased gravity or not.

It's never moved. The card is a couple years old by now, I would have noticed it sooner but this has been over time.

To be honest I think it's pretty stupid of a design choice. The dcu strix cooler is good, but that kind of stress on a multilayer, hot pcb is no good in the long term. Proof these $300 cards are disposable and not meant to last.

Yeah I'm kinda disappointed of the cooler, or Asus as well. These are premium products supposed to be of high quality. :rolleyes: At least my DCU II 780 Ti didn't sag for almost 3 years, but it was a 700$ product as well.

Go find a gpu bolster or make 1, then once you replace that card buy a card with plate, i would also suggest loosening the mobo screws and ensure the gpu and board line up properly in the case, then tighten them down

This is normal for that card. Shit design with no backplate
