  3. Does the RX 580 Armor need a cardholder?

I just installed mine, it's pretty slanted... It barely even fit, but it definitely feels like it needs some support on the side where it isn't screwed in...

I can't find the holder that came with my case (inwin 301)

I'm kinda scared to boot it, you think it'll be ok?

I took a photo but it's barely visible, while irl it's really slanted, like it looks just wrong lol

Ok, upload a good photo. What is the holder? You normally just place the card and put the screws back to the specific holes and you are done.

Last one is more like it really looks... it's at least 2cm lower on the right side than the left side...

I haven't dealt with a case where you have to use an additional holder, but looking at the manual, it does seem like Inwin intends for you to use one.

Yeah, that's what I figured, so it's the case, not the card. Damn it lol, I can't find the holder, I know I have it somewhere... >.>

Are you sure that you installed everything right? Like the motherboard isn't crooked or something? Because that looks really wrong. The holder should provide additional support, but that card looks like it's hanging at a huge angle. An RX 580 isn't that heavy. I have about the same motherboard and a heavier RX 480 and nothing on mine is leaning like that.

Yeah, I mean my old card is shorter and it doesn't look like that...

The problem seems to be the case, I mean it does come with a graphic card holder (which I can't find!)

On the other hand, I'm not quite sure if the card itself isn't bent a bit... It does look kinda weird, I have to check that too...

Are you sure the back clamp is right? You pulled it open and then heard it snap back down?
