Can anybody with an MSI 980Ti(Or a Strix one) post a picture of it in their case?

Preferably in an angle where I can observe if there is any sag. The cases name would be nice as well.

I'll save you the trouble - it sags - even a 960/380 sag a bit

I don't have a 980Ti, but if you are concerned about sag then make sure you get one with a backplate - it generally helps a lot.


Sig under construction.

Pretty much all graphics card (except short ones) will have a slight sag to it. And this is normally not harmful.

I have the amp!extreme which is super heavy and it sacks only a tiny bit.

Pretty much this^

The only exceptions so far are the R9 Nano, R9 Fury, some 960s and 950s, a few 285s and anything lower end than that

I'll post a quick picture of mine while I'm back for lunch. Don't mind the shaky phone image. Case is a Fractal Arc Mini R2 and the shroud tapers from thin at the IO end to fat at the power connector end.

This is my 980Ti in a MSI Z170board....no sag!

 

 

I'm definitely seeing some sag in that second picture. Unfortunately, it really is inevitable without making some modifications.

It looks like the front shroud doesn't have any bending going on, but the PCB looks a little off. Mind taking it from an angle like

 

this?

Sag here too.

This card is only 3 weeks old when I took the picture:
