Japanese GPU Mount Uses 120mm Fan to Prop Up Graphics Card

Posted on

Japanese company Nagao Industry Inc has an interesting solution to GPU sag — an anti-sag bracket that attaches to a rear 120mm chassis fan. The bracket, seen by Twitter user @momomo_us, looks like an inverted vertical GPU mount at first glance. It’s installed directly into the bottom 120mm screw holes and hangs downward to hold the weight of the graphics card. But the design allows the bracket to be tucked away from the center of the case for a cleaner aesthetic. 

We’ve seen some unorthodox anti-sag devices, including the EVGA e-Leash and the spring-loaded MSI Graphics Card Bolster, but this one is particularly unique because it requires a rear 120mm fan to operate. The mount supports both ATX and micro-ATX chassis and might also support some mini-ITX towers.

The bracket itself is incredibly flexible, and can be moved 100mm side to side or 122mm vertically to accommodate shorter or larger graphics cards in smaller and taller cases. Depending on the position of the rear 120mm fan and its associated fan mount in the chassis, the bracket appears to support a graphics card with a maximum thickness of four PCIe slots — this bracket shouldn’t have a problem supporting the largest graphics cards on the market (which do have quad-slot thickness).

The main benefit of this GPU bracket is its stealthy design and low profile. Tucking it away against the rear of the computer chassis means the bracket won’t obstruct your view of the graphics card and might even be forgotten in view of the other components.
