Question ASUS TUF 3070 Sag

Sep 12, 2020
So recently I built a new pc with the new ASUS TUF 3070 OC. Got it at msrp too so screw you scalpers. I do have an issue with it though, it sags a lot and it seems to be very delicate. What I mean is when I accidently slammed my desk the other day, my signal to the monitor turned off. PC was still running and graphics card was still lit up and everything. I took out the hdmi and put it back in and didn't work. However, when I restarted my pc, my monitor regained signal. Does anyone if the stress of the weight of the 3070 can be the problem. Is there anyway to fix this at all such as buying a gpu brace to hold up the gpu? Or is my pcie slot loose or a cable maybe somewhere is loose? Let me know there are any similar problems cause I haven't seen any. I will also list out my specs

Some RTX 3070 come with a GPU bracket justly because the brands are aware of this "sagness factor". For example, the one I own from galax came with the bracket because it is extremely long (317 mm) and any touch on the table would make it shake, even if a little.
