T7 34IMZ5 3080 bracket

2021-06-11, 16:34 PM

I'm upgrading from a 2080 super to a msi 3080 and was wondering if I need the lenovo bracket for the 3080 gpu? The 3080 does come with a brace, can I just use that?

Isn't it the same bracket?   I have a 2080 Super and mine says it was built with "VGA Bracket for RTX 3080" Part number 5M20U50822. 

What does your built-as say? 

On the Lenovo Site, goto "My account" then My Products -> Click on the Serial Number  and select Parts then Built-as 
or go here and enter your serial number.

With that said I don't know if the Lenovo bracket will fit other 2080 or 3080 GPUs.

Hello @DonnyRic,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

I agree with @KlousGT it should be the same bracket except if it has a different part number.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1

Hopefully it works for you.  I bought an Asus 3080 and the bracket included for the 2070 Super didn't work.  I ordered 2 different 3080 brackets from the Lenovo Encompass site listed as for this computer.  I waited 75 days for the shipment to arrive and none of them fit.  :-(

oh noooooo! That sucks. Well if that one does not work hopefully the included one will. I like this rig but now wish I would have just been patient and built my own. Thanks for the response though.

Hopefully it works for you.  I'm planning to modify one of the brackets to make it work - I was thinking about using a couple of standoffs to adjust for the distance from the 2nd set of mounting holes on the case and drilling new holes in the bracket that match up with the holes in the GPU end bracket.  If it looks ok, I'll take a photo afterwards.

 

The only reason for doing it is that the GPU is heavy and hangs down slightly on the far end from the PCI socket.  It really needs the added support.

Just finished modifying the 3080 plastic bracket that I purchased via Encompass.  I had to drill 4 new holes, one for the 2nd screw into the GPU bracket and the three that mount to the case.  It is much more solid now - just what I wanted.  I circled the 3 holes I had to drill in the plastic bracket.  The whole process took about 30 minutes.  My GPU is an ASUS TUF RTX3080 O10G Gaming.  Great GPU, but needs a solid power supply.  The Lenovo 650 Watt power supply that came with the PC was struggling to power everything.  I ended up installing a Corsair RMx 1000 Watt power supply upside down so that the fan blows out the bottom.  It fit perfectly in the case where the OEM power supply was.  I had to remove the 3.5" HDD bracket to install it and all of the needed modular cables.  I then reinstalled the 3.5" HDD bracket.

That looks good! I just used the msi support bracket that came with the gpu. It doesn't look the best but i'm already sourcing parts to build my own.
