Japanese firm Nagao Trade Inc has an attention-grabbing answer to GPU sag — an anti-sag bracket that attaches to a rear 120mm chassis fan. The bracket, seen by Twitter consumer @momomo_us, seems to be like an inverted vertical GPU mount at first look. It is put in instantly into the underside 120mm screw holes and hangs downward to carry the load of the graphics card. However the design permits the bracket to be tucked away from the middle of the case for a cleaner aesthetic.
We have seen some unorthodox anti-sag gadgets, together with the EVGA e-Leash and the spring-loaded MSI Graphics Card Bolster, however this one is especially distinctive as a result of it requires a rear 120mm fan to function. The mount helps each ATX and micro-ATX chassis and may additionally assist some mini-ITX towers.

The bracket itself is extremely versatile, and could be moved 100mm facet to facet or 122mm vertically to accommodate shorter or bigger graphics playing cards in smaller and taller circumstances. Relying on the place of the rear 120mm fan and its related fan mount within the chassis, the bracket seems to assist a graphics card with a most thickness of 4 PCIe slots — this bracket should not have an issue supporting the biggest graphics playing cards in the marketplace (which do have quad-slot thickness).
The primary good thing about this GPU bracket is its stealthy design and low profile. Tucking it away towards the rear of the pc chassis means the bracket will not impede your view of the graphics card and may even be forgotten in view of the opposite elements.
The draw back of this GPU bracket is that it props up the graphics card by the entrance, which is the place it has the least quantity of leverage. This implies the bracket is probably not very efficient — relying on the design of your graphics card, the bracket won’t supply sufficient assist to forestall sag. You may have to check this your self on a card-by-card foundation.
Sadly, the bracket does not look like on sale (but). Nagao Trade hasn’t listed a value or a market re-seller on the product web page, however because it was solely simply found on Twitter, there’s an opportunity it may very well be obtainable quickly. Let’s hope Nagao Trade decides to promote the bracket internationally for these of us exterior of Japan that suffer from GPU sag.
