Hi! My first post, please be gentle :D

My specs:
Asus Expedition EX-B250-V7
Aerocool VP-650 650W
Asus Strix OC 1060 6gb

As far as known, videocards of 'Strix' line quite heavy. And I noticed that my card is a little sagging.

I decided to put something as "stand" for it and found buff for nails

Looks pretty good.

Now here is a part why I am here.
After installing this "stand" I've noticed that the temperature of my GPU is different.
In all games 80-83℃ all the time.
WTF
Early the temperature was 50-65℃ (at hight load).

Ok, I opened FurMark and saw there a strange story.
This screen when GPU with the stand:

And without it:

At this screen, I did an experiment. I gradually lifted up of my finger the end of the plate and got those stairs:

What is going there? :D

Thanks!
 
you are changing the pressure of the way the GPU package and the heatsink come in contact with each other. while the sagging may not look the best, if your temps are being affected by your solution then I would find something else maybe like this.
