    Is this normal, sagging gpu on Rampage 4 black edition?

    Hi check out this picture of my GPU, its sagging so bad that on my GTX 690 im getting a an increase of 10 degrees in temps on GPU1 according to AIDA 64. The temps are 33 and 43, as soon as i push the card up with my fingers the temps on gpu 1 drop to aroud 33 which is what i what on my old x58. I never had this problem on my old x58, can someone confirm for me if this board is faulty or what i can do to get rid of this problem?
    Thanks.

    That a new case or the one you were using before?

    I'd try finding a backplate for that card.

    Its a new case, i went from an Antec 1200 to a corsair 900D.
    Is my motherboard faulty?
    Will a backplate solve the issue?

    A back plate may help, it is not your motherboard maybe shorten the water line on the top side would help lift up on the back outside of the card, it is a long card and there is no support, it has sagged and twisted some what unfortunately that is fairly common, a back plate helps strengthen the card but with the wait of the block it needs suppoerted

    Hello PFS38,

    If they are liquid cooled without a back plate yes you will still have the sagging problem as the gpu water blocks are heavy. Here is what I would do for a quick and easy fix. I would get a brand new pencil and cut it to length to where the gpu is not sagging and put the eraser end against the gpu water block and prop it up.

    It may not look the prettiest but at least you know your gpu isn't sagging anymore.

    It is not the motherboard, you have one screw holding it by the bracket at one end and nothing at the other end that is why it is sagging.

    Got a brand new pencil?

    Thanks everyone good advice! I did fix it by a good bit though by routing the PCIE cables from the top and i used a cable tie from PCIE-24Pin power cable.

    Temps have now dropped from 33-43 to 33-35, so its improved, i can live with that!

    I think when i get a new card (800 series maxwell) i will do what you said put a backplate on and maybe shorten tubing by 1 cm or so. Here is another picture, bit better.

    you can use a thin fishing line too if thats an option.
    and tie it to the end of the card ( towards the case door ) and to the roof.
