2) Mounting:
a) If I decide to do this method, I'll probably get Dwood's bracket. Is there any way to use screws to attach the cooler rather than zip ties?
b) If I decide to use zip ties, do I tighten 4 zipties around the bracket, fit them through the PCB mounting holes, and then secure them with the locking end of another 4 zipties? Is that the process or am I missing something?
3) Rad placement: My current case (Fractal Design Core 1000) has two places for a 120mm fan: the front panel and side panel. Is it fine to attach the rad to the side panel, or will temps be worse vs the front panel placement?
Dwood's bracket is attached with screws.

Anyone have any ideas about this? I started a thread here before to get an idea of what speed I'd need to run the stock fan at to be able to bench (Furmark) and was told that was a silly goal and that I shouldn't bother because I'll just fry my card. Having run Furmark for several hours with the stock cooling I know this isn't true - what sort of fan speed does the stock fan need to be able to maintain a Furmark session without blowing up?

Don't use furmark, it is an unrealistic load; I would recommend Unigine.

Yeah, a few runs of Unigine should determine stability. I also use OCCT or EVGA OC Scanner to find artifacts.

I find that OC scanner will find an artifact every half hour or so on a stable clock speed, so it's not the best tool.

Never happened to me :/
I let the thing run for a few hours though.

Hey guys, just thought I'd throw this out there. I'd HIGHLY recommend the Corsair SP120's to anyone! They're really quiet for even the performance series and they dropped my 580's temps 2C from stock antec fan push --- Scythe slipstream pull. Now I've got it SP120 push ---- Scythe slipstream pull. Temp went from ~50-51C to 47-48C. The fan looks awesome too! Not sure how much better cooling I can get with the Antec 620 mod on my 580. Lapped, direct die, best fans...It's awesome I can overclock to 1.150V and it doesn't break 50C now... Well worth the investment!

I just want to thank everyone that has bought a bracket lately. I also want to thank everyone that answers questions here and recommends my bracket as Im sure I wouldnt sell near as many without yalls help and trechnical support.

Thanks everyone!
