Do you mean GPU sag? Thats perfectly fine.

the gpu came with a bracket that gets mounted directly under it so it can keep the gpu straight

If you raise the card while securing it, that shouldn't leave all the pressure on the slot.

I've used a bunch of RTX cards and none of them have been a major concern in that dept.

But yeah, use the bracket if you're concerned.

If you placed them correctly lined up and then screwed on the aio properly keeping it straight, then you shouldn't have any issue what so ever.

probably. My GTX 580 used to sag harder than a pair of pants in a county jail.

 

A backplate can help keep the card straight.

One thing I noticed with a lot of LTT videos is that they stand the case up, then put the card in, trying to hold it in place and then screw in the plate.

 

I would think gravity could be your friend, put it on its side and lower the graphics card into the case, meaning that it is easier to align the place and make sure there is a bit less sag.
