I would also like to know, as my GPU is also getting some downward pressure from the waterblock.

Do you have any pictures?

Is it slotted in to the motherboard correctly, and secured with a screw to the pci bracket?

It should be fine if it is, and abit of sag maybe natural due to the weight of the card

Yea, you should have the screw in the back of the case to hold up the card, a little sagging is fine.

If your really bothered get some acrylic and cut it into a rectangle to support the weight and slot it between your card and the bottom of the case
