    Same with a Silverstone case with a rotated motherboard - no sag issues in my PC! :) Now, the waistline on the other hand... :(

    I must admit when I did have the old school desktop case GPUs were much lighter :)

    MNPCtech sells GPU brackets, they are based in the US but will ship to the UK.

    I might be breaking rules by linking to the site but google MNPCtech GPU support bracket, I purchased one for my 980 which had terrible sag with a waterblock on.

    not sure if it is actually breaking rules because OCUK don't do the same products as such. afaik it was only competitors i.e selling the same items that wernt allowed.

    its the window cut outs for top of cases of windows that could be used, or just bite the bullet and do one full sheet, charge £10 per case and add it in as "free"
