GPU Sag Support

Dephindender

I am curious what others have found or can suggest for a sag support. Unfortunately the sag support I was given when I originally got my pc was not enough and one of my pcie lanes is damaged to where my card won't work in it. What sag support would be best for a 4090. Either needs to be screwed into a fan hole at the top or been a long brace, around 11~12 inches. A lot of models I found were either far too short or they were just pegs which I don't feel comfortable with.

I prefer the piston type supports.  Like this...

I have looked at that one before. Unfortunately if it's a bottom support it needs to clear almost 280mm. The company put my mobo in upside-down. Why I also looked at one's that tether to fan holes. Didn't find one I would be super comfortable with.

A piece of wood cut to size or stackked lego pieces always work.

 

3d printed pillar if you feeling fancy.

Qoute my reply if you want me to answer back.

Now I'm no engineer but I think a hockey stick would be too long. 🤔

Now that's an idea! Should I use the handle or the blade though... hmm

 

In all seriousness though. I found one that gets a screw hole for a fan hole. It also reaches 11 inches, so it probably barely miss supporting the gpu from the bottom but I can still tether it to the top of the case. Also got into contact with the makers of my pc and they will be sending out a new mobo due to the damaged pcie port. So that's a bonus!
