    Couldn't agree with you more. I'm more than sure that this GPU is sketchy. Right now, the retailer sent it in once again to an ASUS service center, and thankfully as I know the serial number I have an RMA number. Considering however that the retailer claims, that hitting 90C is NOT a defect, I wonder what kind of error summary they sent the card with... I can see the card arriving the 7th of June and it immediately waiting for final test before shipping it back. I contacted ASUS, sending an appropriate error summary with the above video, but I wonder what the outcome will be. Too bad the retailer doesn't give information as of what they send the card in nor I'll see the paperwork from ASUS, at least that would indicate if the retailer sent the card in with the documents I sent them or they just go ham and couldn't care less. But hey, couldn't find a single ASUS member on the forums, nor reddit who paid attention to this situation so guess I'm out of luck.

    And just so I write it out. I could live with a support bracket sure. But I literally have to push the card up by a fair amount of actual force. I'm literally pushing upwards with approx 2.5cm, that just waaaaay to much for the pcie slot to handle. And also, AURA software failed to pick the card up... But yet again, that's not a GPU fault according to my lovely retailer.

    Yes but I don't have support bracket. For me that's not problem at all.
    Because all heavy cards sag, this type of slots date from period when graphic cards were 1/5 of weight from now and it's impossible to screws on back and PCI-E slot keep card right.
    PCI-E slot need to be long as card and PCI-E bracket wide as GPU to hold them in right position.
    I'm only angry because I can't buy this...

    I think asus should inform their distributors and provide few asus rof-tuf vga holders if they have poseidon.
    ASUS know that sagging of Poseidon influence on temperatures. That's recognized among customers.
    Because of that at least we deserve to get chance to buy ASUS Holder because it's small and almost not visible.
    I don't want RGB holder longer then my GPU and 3-4 cm wide.

    Well, I don't know... I had a Strix GTX1080 before I switched over to the Poseidon 1080Ti, and I had no temp problems, without support bracket. But with the poseidon... unless I literally brake my motherboard I couldn't get reasonable temps out of it.

    Fingers crossed, I sent an appropriate description of the situation along with links to the videos and to this thread to ASUS, and asked them to forward it to the service center so at least they have an idea on what to look for. The retailer did not forward it, that I'm sure about, and it's been nearly 3 months now with an Intel HD630 gpu. I tell you, this is awesome . Runs at a nice 54C with ML240R cooler.

    Poseidon H20 Hybrid block together with heatsink part is much heavier then ASUS Strix.
    I seriously think that ASUS should send their VGA Holder inside box with Poseidon.
    They sent with high end motherboards, but with Poseidon customers need them for graphic card they bought.

    Poseidon have both and heatsink and block for liquid. Strix have only fins.

    They don't need to separate from graphic processors.
    Enough to other part move 1mm and heat spreading further will be broken and heat will stay.

    I don't have single case fan.
    And I don't need them to be honest.
    I have place for one 80mm on back side and maybe I will install there Noctua 80mm Slim they presented 2019 when show up.
    That's it. I hope that will stop dust to enter in case and CPU-GPU are on 360mm radiator, one more 360mm will be installed and that's it.
    I will prove that case fans are not necessary in some cases.

    Yeah I know, I just didn't want to tear it down and loose the warranty. Though I probably could just use some needle pliers to remove the screw with the warranty sticker but nope, I'm not that patient... My favorite part was when I straight asked the retailer that if hitting 90C in 1080p is considered normal for him, should I let it run for a couple of days so hopefully it'll turn into a piece of brick? Would that piece of brick qualify for abnormal behavior for them?
    Asus should reconsider choosing their resellers, because this is ridiculous. They don't give a damn about warranty claims, whatever you send the card in to them they'll test it for you and if according to their tests the card is faulty then and only then send the card to their distributor but they're removing your error description since they couldn't care less. Now, if the distributor also finds the card faulty then and only then the manufacturer service center will get it with the error that both the retailer and the distributor claimed as faults. I really have to find a place that sells GPUs with international manufacturer warranty and not this mindless retailer>distributor>service center chain because it doesn't work as we can see...

    That's crazy that big companies with billions profit behave like that.
    They asked you to write all information about hardware when you ask something.
    You spend 15 minutes searching for serial numbers, looking on boxes, write them and then someone answer you and figure out that he didn't even know difference on motherboard.
    You ask something they say Try to change that option, and that not exist in motherboards any more last 2-3 years. Maybe on some low end motherboards.
    Why then you lose time to write all information about hardware and serial number.
    90C is maybe normal for Fermi GTX480 aka Thermi but he didn't even pay attention probably on Graphic card you have.

    You see they behave like clinically dead, I asked for ASUS ROG of TUF VGA Holder to buy.
    They don't even think that maybe it' would be good to send some of them to distributor in my country and I will buy ASUS ROG-TUF VGA HOLDER.
