A little help?

Hey people


Right I am posting this here because I have a Z97 MSI mobo (Gaming 5)

Now, I am new to PC. haha (3 weeks young) and I am seriously nervous about my kit. I built the system myself and it was my first time.

The question I have is my GPU sags if that makes sense, you may be able to see it here:


A couple have peeps have said its sagging and I have made sure it is all connected and clipped in. I wondered if you guys could help me resolve this or tell me I am being a numpty and its fine?

Also what sort of temperature am I to expect on the mobo? I have caught it running at 55-60 degrees and its not overclocked (yet) have I done something wrong? ( I know have 3 120mm fans and the cpu cooler installed :P)

Many questions. one noob. please do tell me if I am being silly. I am here to learn

It is a GTX770, I mean the system runs really well from what I can tell but the sag has got me a little worried. It seems that it is too heavy or not cquite well fitted to the motherboard.

You could simply make a bracket to prop up the card, or a "Pylon" to prop under the far end. I chose a bracket, simple to make and next to zero skills required and no GPU sag

As long as you have a couple of spare pci brackets it's an option, as for youtube how too's I've no idea, it came to me while putting some shelves up, as my old HD 6790 was a heavy card and sagged like crazy. I can do a blue print if you'd like, although you might have to modify it to suit your graphics card.

Hopefully it's clear enough.
