GPU sag - what are my options?

Hardware - bit-tech.net Forums - forums.bit-tech.net
So with the impending arrival of my 1.3kg 1080 Ti Strix, I'm thinking about the saggage:

11:25 onwards -

I'm looking around for a solution but there seems to be really limited options available in the UK. MNPCTech do a lovely CNC machined brace for ~$45 plus shipping to the UK; however, there's seems to be few other options other than crappy perspex clones of the MNPCTech offering through eBay.

I'm not too concerned for the longevity of the motherboard's PCI-E socket as I'll likely upgrade before any long lasting damage is realised; however, the GPU I expect to get quite a few years from. Plus.... aesthetics.....

One other option I've explored is using carbon fibre rod or tube, from kite flying hobby shops, cut to size and used as a prop. It'll be under a tenner and would suit the build but not 'mounted' and secured as is my preference.

Anyone bother to brace their heavy cards or am I just being too particular? If so, what solution did you opt for?
