Martin778 I can tell you it does work but has a catch - place the PC horizontaly, then make sure the bracket firmly touches the card and fasten the bracket.
You can also push the bracket against the card so it moves a bit upwards and then fasten the bracket and the card.

Melodist However, another issue was the sag, I mean, I've had a 1080 Ti before from MSI, Gaming X but this takes the cake. The provided holding arm does NOTHING.

How the **** didn't I think of that XDD Man, I built audio equipment with heavy transformers and I couldn't think of that, thank you so much.

Martin778 I would grab a generic anti sag kit, it looks like you can mount it on the right side of the card to make it less visible.
Even without using the anti sag kit and if a case screw holding the gpu comes lose, it shouldn't damage the PCI-E slot or the GPU - the card will probably hang on the HDMI/DP plug of the monitor cable against the case.

BradleyW Use a wider screw.

ntuason I don't know about only one screw, X Trio is a very heavy card and if that one screw were to fail your PCIE is holding all that weight.

If you are worried about it, you could look for an even larger (diameter, not length) screw (don't over tighten it or you'll have the same issue again).

Just out of curiosity, what case is this?
