Description

My Main Rig for Gaming/Skype/Work/Everything. Cut out the side fan mount and installed some lighting, looks pretty cool. Only problem: GPU Droops a bit (as seen in photo)

It's also pretty much silent except for the PSU Fan, and the PSU is actually a 700W but it wasnt listed in the database.

Would like to see some pictures of the insides, how did you get tbe 830? Got it free or something, since there is no price tag on it.

Did you screw the GPU securely where the expansion slots are? Would have a changed one or two things, but solid build.

My Matrix 7970 droops probably worse (Triple slot MONSTA lol) however I chose my case wisely, as the HAF x come with a GPU bracket that props it up. But yeah, that droop is not good, get something to prop it up. Nice rig overall.

Yea it's securely fastened on the back end but nothing to hold it up on the other end, it's a heavy card, I'll look into these gpu holds and stuff if it's a cause for concern.

Yeah, thats more stress on your PCI slot/MOBO, could cause problems if that PCI slot isn't built like a rock.

Fix that droop bro. I feel like the GPU is gonna fall of.

The infamous ASUS Direct CU II droop. Sometimes, even when securely fastened, the weight of the cooler warps the PCB and there's nothing you can do about it.

I would double check to see if its securely in place, however. Also, I would try to put in some type of support for the GPU.

If you don't have some fancy GPU propper at the moment, just use a paper towel cardboard tube or something like that. Works fine.
