    GPU sag.

    Is their a novel/cheap but aesthetically pleasing way to resolve this?

    Thanks man. In the meantime I've used some nylon fishing line but will look into the above at some point.

    There is a trick that is to screw a little screw into the back to tilt the gpu up.
    Saw it on a YouTube video I think maybe from jayz2centz but I need to check again itís been a while

    I tied a bit of fishing line on the front back corner on the HSF of my 580 the up to the top of the case. Sits perfectly flat now. You could use mono and it would be almost invisible.

    Some of the cringy dolls some people put in their cases are another option

    Best way to resolve it is full cover water-cooling

    There were these as well https://www.etsy.com/nz/listing/6551...ircuit-picture

    But he's "taking a short break" whatever that means.

    What would be cool would be some sort of cheap expanding tension rod (kind like a pull up bar for doors).

    Unfortunately this GPU is also warping from the PCB slightly so this won't quite work. It needs actual tension on the unsupported side.

    I'm presuming sheep is refering to Monofilament - a single, continuous strand (filament) of synthetic fiber. eg Monofilament fishing line.

    My 290 no longer works in my first pci-e socket, but I put that down to salty coast air then GPU sag - but who knows

    Just route the power connector so it is "pulling up" on the card OR if you want to show off get a PCI-E extender and have the card standing up.

    Or get a Raven/ Fortress.
    I had my card on the vertical mount for a while, but it's close to the side panel, so runs around 10 degrees hotter.
    Switched back to the normal mounting until winter.

    Got lego or similar? Could make up a column pretty easy. In the past i've used the power cables and just cable tied them tight, to hold the whole lot up.

    I tried this and it looks really ugly.

    Bleach, yeah mono = monofilament. Find someone that goes fishing. They will give you some for free no doubt. Job done.
    I can take a pic of what I've done if you like.

    I'm kinding hoping the mono is more or less invisible.

    You'd only need a lightweight mono for the job, so yeah it would be pretty hard to spot.

    Vertical mount is best bet. recommend the thermaltake P5s if you are worried about cooling. got one myself, RX580 idles at 30 deg.
