Hi, I have a 3 year old Asus rog stix 1070 8GB It was sagging a bit at the tail end so I put a DIY support at the other end. The minute I do that the temperature of my GPU ideal shoots up by 10 degrees to 45degrees.. when I remove the support brace the temp goes down to 36-38.. (room temp 30) I don't seem to understand why this would be... Is it because the brace is too tight or thermal paste issue ?

Even when I try to gently press the heat sink section up there is a sudden spike in temperature... however, when i remove the GENTLE pressure the temperature falls again.. I am not sure why.. I have tried placing the support at different sections and the result is the same.. any support/ thoughts would be much appreciated...

As such without support aswell the system is working fine.. no crashes or shutdowns even at 98% load but not sure my mobo can hold this card as it does not have a reinforced slot. Hence planning to use a support
