GPU Bracket Decision for RTX 2080 Super (MSI Gaming X Trio)

Hi, and welcome to the form.

 

I don't think you can go wrong with either option. If you like the look of the cheaper one it seems like a pretty straightforward choice. Depending on where you order it from you can always return it if it doesn't work or is poor quality. Even though it's shorter it still supports the GPU 75 percent of the way, which is sufficient for it's intended use.

 

Looks like that card comes with a support bracket. Based on quick Amazon search the reviews on it's effectiveness is mixed. Either way, you may just want to see how bad the sag actually is once you get everything built, then add a different support bracket if necessary. Unless you're also going for looks with it, then have at it!

Hey everybody,

 

       As the title says, I'm having trouble choosing between two GPU brackets for my planned PC build. The two choices are between the Bykski Universal GPU Aluminum support bracket (its dimensions being 250 mm in length by 33 mm wide) and the Mnpctech RTX series GPU support bracket (dimensions of approximately 323 mm long by 38 mm). Not sure if I'm allowed to put links in here as this is my first post and experience with this forum. Anyways, I like the look and the way lower price (17.95 USD vs 49.99 USD) of the Bykski bracket, but I'm worried that one, the bracket isn't long enough to support the full length of 328 mm of the card (possibly causing degrading of the shroud at the end of the card? IDK), and 2, the dip in price will sacrifice the quality of the product. Both are made of aluminum. So, what I'm asking is does anyone here have any experience with Bykski products? From what I've heard Mnpctech is well-trusted and I know they make good stuff.

 

- Thanks
