Go to solution Solved by Rorgash,

yes

So I installed my Asus GTX 770 today and I do not like that is bending. Is that normal?

Yes it is, my friend had the same problem.

Someone told Luke and Linus at CES 2017 to "Unban the legend known as Jerakl" and that's about all I've got going for me.

I bought a weird PC case and SFX psu just to build a PC in but I'm too cheap to buy the other parts

No, that is not normal... If I was you I would give it some more support on the right side. It's not really bending, it looks to me like the right side is just sloping down too much.

You never know, that card has some weight to it.

 

Either way, I would definitely give it more support on the right. Better safe than sorry, I always say.

Yes this is normal but if you want to hold it up a bit better you can route your pcie power cabled through the same hole as your 24pin and plug them into gpu and pull them tight and it will hold that side up.

Yeah.. I tried pushing some cables around in one of my older rigs to try to keep the GPU propped up, but it still sags quite a bit.. They all do that..

 

Edit: it never hurts to make sure that the GPU is properly seated in its slot and that the screws are tightened sufficiently..

The right side is all the way down.

 

I will work something out with some twist ties and the PCI-E power I guess. I just got worried that something is wrong.

That's totally normal, it is not very good for the card but there isn't much you can do about it. Just don't wiggle your case around too much and it should be fine.

Nope, nothing is particularly wrong with your card. It seems normal on that card and it accentuates on some motherboards more than others.

So on that note, congratulations.. You're a winner!

Recommend you wire your 6/8pins through the back having them pull the card up.

Its normal, You can try putting a piece of tubing or something under the DVi Port and sometimes that will make it look straight, or you can put something under it but your card most likely is not sagging as it has a backplate on it.

You should see my R9-290 with a 1KG Aftermarket cooler on it (It doesn't have braces to keep it straight like the stock) it has atleast a 5-10* bend on it, I wouldn't worry about it.

Its fine, pretty much all beefy GPUs have GPU sag. As long as it doesn't do this to your PCIE slot its fine.

What I tend to do is route my PCIE power cables as high as possible via the cable management holes so it pulls the other end of the card up so it balances the droop.

I had a GTX 470 that warped and it ran fine, but it was a Gigabyte "ultra durable" card so maybe that made a difference? I'm not sure if it warped through heat or just the weight of the heat-sink but it didn't seem to make any difference to its performance. 

 

If it bothers you that much, maybe lash the power cables to your case with cable ties, as suggested above, to give it more support.

It's very normal. It's called GPU sag and triple slot cards suffer from it the worst. It shouldn't have any seriously adverse affects on your GPU, but I would route the GPU power cables higher up if you can just to pull the right side of the card up slightly. My Hd 7950 is a triple slot card, and originally I had the same problem. I found that there is usually enough support built into the card and all I had to do to solve the problem was tighten the PCI-e thumb screws a little more to ensure it was properly seated at the back of the case.

I have the gigabyte gtx 770 windforce and my card is longer than yours mine is around  11.5 Inches and does not bend but that does not seem normal.

How is this even possible short of trying? Dropping an absurdly large aftermarket CPU cooler on your GPU?

This will give me nightmares.

 

I now used some twist ties on the power cable, but it isn't that great. Tomorrow I will try to move the power cable. The card itself is running great, I got it to 1250 mhz and with 1260 Thief crashes.But I didn't touch the voltage. Also sometimes Thief uses 2gb of vram and then it stutters. From what I read so far, ssms or what ever it is called is causing the issue.

I never posted my ghetto solution against the bending.

I have a GTX 770 with an EK-FC770 waterblock, and it sags a little at the right side. As long as it doesn't bend TOO much and affect the PCI-e slot, you should be fine.
