    I'm good with a petite card

    Anyway I guess they'll be building support beams in cases just to hold that thing. And here I thought Gigabyte was being stupid for adding metal braces to their PCIE slots on their motherboards. Alrighty then

    At any rate enjoy the card.

    @sygnus21, your HAF X has a GPU support bracket and has had for years. Yea, I know. I don't use mine either, but you can actually add a fan to it, if you wanted to use It.

    Yeah I know it came with a GPU brace, still have it. Anyway it's mainly for multi GPU configurations. Regardless I never had a need for it as a GPU brace. That said, I did once try it with a fan but didn't like it. Never used it again.

    Well because of the temps we are having early this spring, I went out and bought a portable AC just for the room my computer is in. Easy hookup, just stick the exhaust hose out a window. Comes with adapters for your windows. Only bought a small one, 8000 BTU's . What a Difference now in my CPU temps, and water temps. They went down at least 4° and water temps down about 3° Don't seem like much maybe, but room feels sooo much better. So now I am ready for the high temps outside this summer.

    Good move OldMike. Those 3-4 degree temp drops are significant, making you and your fine hardware (and possibly an awaiting new GPU ) much happier.

    But she was unhappy with this fix now that she was the fastest 1070 around. With her new found fame, Nelly sought a more powerful permanent fix:
