Had the time to fix it today, still don't have the heatsinks for the memory though, so I still can't test the performance. But since I made sure there were no air bubbles, at least I thought for like a hour of how I would pull the ties without making bubbles lol, the temps went from 28-29 idle to 26C idle/browsing Internet. It was very easy with the CM Seidon imo. Definitely the best budget CPU/GPU cooler by far @ 25$.
I noticed this little dent thing after I removed the cooler (also after using 2 zip ties). But the CM Seidons copper block is huge, almost 4x bigger than the videocards processor, I don't see how I could create this as no matter how I could mount it, the Seidon block would cover every bit of it, thus making it impossible for me to damage it unless some metal shaving got under it or if it is Very uneven in a tiny spot, which is unlikely. Top left corner. Still works perfectly I think so I don't mind.
Also I'd like to add, since I didn't see it in the guide, maybe Rage can add it for any new people. But the zip ties should have a width of 1mm or less to fit through the holes of the GPU.
Another thing, it must be so much easier to do this mod with the CM Seidon too since it doesn't require any weird brackets, just put the 4 ties through the 4 holes, and use 4 other zip ties to lock them to the back.Edited by moccor - 10/4/13 at 6:22pm
