Ways to help prevent your desktop PC's GPU from sagging
GPU sagging occurs when the graphics card is too heavy for the case bracket or PCB to support, usually caused the massive cooler shrouds. Here are some ways to combat this.Graphics processing units (better known as GPUs) have grown considerably in size, way past the limit that was expected of this plug-in cards. Should you pick up a new GTX 1080 or RX 480 graphics card, you may notice what is called "GPU sagging." This is when the surrounding cooling shroud and solution is too heavy for the PCB and supporting case bracket to uphold. Thus the card bends a little.If you're not particularly bothered about your GPU sagging, fear not, as PCBs and the units themselves are tested for case drops, intense vibrations, and sudden movements, as well as flexing in general. Your card won't suddenly cease to function as designed, but it can apply a look that system builders don't wish to see when they gaze into the case window.GPU manufacturers have attempted to weigh in on implementing their own solutions, which include installing backplates onto the PCB to add strength, as well as using optimal materials in constructing the cooling solution. Still, even the latest and most expensive cards can look to be drooping on the far side of the unit, so just what can you do to rectify this issue? Luckily, there are a few steps one can try to fix it.
