Bent power delivery GPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey I have a RTX2080 and I only had one concern. 

works great but bent power pins for 8 pin PSU delivery? 

is this bad for long run? 

If you look closely, you see the  grey plastic square on GPU bent, but not the cable from the power supply, only where it plugs in.

Thank you SO much for your time!!!

Based off the picture the only thing I see is electric tape to hide something - what bent pins?

As long as there is no tension on the cable, I wouldn't worry too much about it. If there's too much tension on it, it may eventually rip the socket off the PCB, but typically these kinds of connectors can take a bit of force because their contacts go completely through the PCB, and aren't simply glued down like USB ports.

You can “train” your cables to bent a bit more and don’t put so much tension on the power socket. And also for aesthetics you can get combs instead of the cable ties, will look much better with custom cables

Make sure not to put your cables under too much tension and you'll be fine leave enough room in them so as to make sure you can easily unplug the cables from the gpu in future in case you wish to clean sell or upgrade your gpu

So did it get like this from the tension of just from factory?
