Vertically mounted gpu, do i need an additional support unit?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys, i am going to mount a GTX 1080 TI vertically held by 2 pcie case mounts, while having a GPU block which is mostly metal (HeatKiller IV nickel):watercool-heatkiller-iv-for-gtx-1080-and

 

Do i actually need an additional support below the card/block or will the 2 pcie mount slots be just enough?

That block is actually pretty heavy (heavier then the acrylic ones), but it should be fine since it's sitting vertical so the weight is being distributed better  so sagging shouldn't be problem.
