    Hello guys.

    I really don't know where to post this so here we go.

    I'm a process of organizing some of my unused old hardware, and I would like to put my old graphics card on one of my shelf, like you see on some hardware youtuber videos.

    Stupid question, but are some of you already doing this , and what kind of stand are you using ? It's a strange form factor... For the weight, I will remove the radiator / water block, so It won't be that heavy.

    Any recommendation ?

    Thx :)

    Get a block of hardwood cut a groove in it to replicate a pci-e slot and slot it in.

    You can check Home Depot, Lowes or maybe Amazon and see if hard foam blocks will work. They come in a variety of colors, shapes and thickness.
