Is this amount of front I/O incline normal?

    The PCB at the video sockets end is twisted relative to the rest of it (towards centre at top and away from centre at the bottom). Whilst a PCB can bend slightly, that looks excessive.

    Seems to be due to the metal L bracket with the video sockets being somewhat out of tolerance.

    Difficult to tell without being hands on.

    It would not be acceptable quality for me.
    I tried taking the metal bracket off and adjusting some screws to try and change anything, but to no avail. Unfortunately I donít have a proper evga 2070 super to actually compare what itís supposed to be like


    And the even weirder thing is that when inserted, I suffer from reverse sag in that it points up instead of down. I actually need to push it down in order for the card to appear straight (and to also POST)

    That is basically because of the twist in the PCB, the bottom edge of which is the connector to the MOBO PCI-E slot.There maybe other components out of tolerance or even designed with wrong dimensions.
    It is basically not of satisfactory quality and should be returned. Depending on whatever consumer laws operate in your country, I would try and get a refund and buy a different card from another manufacturer.

    I've run into similar problem a while ago. I loosened all screws holding MB down and MB moved just a bit enough to get GPU to stay straight. I remember some Matrox GPUs having slightly thinner PCB and would not make contacts in PCIe slot properly making it fail.

    Was your GPUs pcb also similarly bent, or was it just some weird compatibility issue? I could try loosening the screws and see if that makes a difference. By how much did you loosen them by?

    GPU wasn't bent but only slanted

    By slanted I'll assume it's more tilted and one thing to assure is when fastening the mounting plate it is pushed fully against the screw that holds it when tightening that screw.

    Not perpendicular to MB, not 90 but 95 or more degrees due to case slot not lined up with PCI bus.

    I'd have to surmise there's something wrong with the case, motherboard is not mounted correctly or isn't made for that case. Usually a case will accept either an ATX or a MicroATX board, have mounting holes spaced correctly so the boards can be fastened down. Things may be different if it's an OEM/Brand Name computer.

    Like I said before, holes in MB were to large and MB didn't line up properly. Released all screws and moved it up enough to fix it.
