    Has anyone come up with any aesthetically pleasing remedies for their Strix 980 Ti sagging?

    Hello pck1977

    The strix 980ti comes with a backplate so it shouldn't be sagging, do you have it screwed into the pci bracket?

    Post us a screen shot if you can please.

    The backplate helps with sagging, but these cards are so huge it would be difficult to not have them sag a little bit. Mine wasn't terrible, but I ziptied the power cables to the hardrive cage to hold it up. I read of someone else putting rubber caps on the end of a dowel rod that was cut to the right length to prop it up and another guy using black lego blocks to hold it up.

    After a certain age sagging becomes inevitable....I don't know if ASUS make a Strix push up bra

    Ahem...seriously...screwing the two points to the case should help a lot as Nate says...or rearranging the power connections so the cables are helping to pull up instead of down...like top card here not bottom card



    The lego is a cool idea!

    I have had no luck dealing with the sag in mine. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    I have it tightly screwed in but just look at it.

    I made

    I made a wooden dowel with 2 plastic ends to support my card. It is cheap and fun.
    Check it out. Painted it black to match.

    That looks ok and fixed the sagging, another thing I see people doing is using fishing line and tie it to the top of the case somewhere.

    Clay's support rod looks smart ... wood works well but I would've probably used a plastic.

    Another PCIe bracket (like this or this) might help.

    Use metal slot screws. Avoid using any plastic slot screws/clamps which might've come with the chassis.

    Sagging would be a non-issue with horizontal motherboard, lol.
