Just installed everything, had to remove that big heatsinks cause of clearance, does it look good to go guys? do i have your go ahead to fire her up? lol. is it worthy?

It's litterally glued on, the glue is just around the edge, so you do not have to go really deep inside (what she said). You just have to be careful not to touch the transistors that are in the cutouts of that square.

Personal opinion: those enzotech heatsinks for the VRMs are weak...but decent if you don't want to get your hands dirty.

BTW, you really need to center that cooler on your card. The heat discipation area is right in the middle. Your mounting is really shifted from the middle. Try to turn the mounting block like a rhombus, should give you a few more degrees in cooling.

@djkomrad if you want to "decapsulate" the GPU there's some pics and links earlier in this thread and a short "how to" guide. I just want to reiterate that you must be very careful whilst attempting this, as one small slip could potentially brick your card or partially amputate a finger.. Refer to previous posts about covering the small transistors around the GPU die with electrical tape prior to applying the CLC water block so that you don't accidentally short anything out.

Best of luck [=

You don't have to be a surgeon though...just really careful and not stupid.

big swiftech heatsink wouldnt work with my corsair h60, so ill have to get it cut, but i went on with the build and here are some pics.

The VRM & VRAM heat sink locations look good, though as mentioned above if you can get the CLC block nice and square on the GPU die you should get better load temps.

ok guys having a problem. the computer keeps bsoding now when i start the windows installation. the hardware debug led reports d6 which has to do with the video... ill try reseating the card, any other tips?

Maybe it's locking up cuz your cooler is seated crazy on the die

Gotta say that's the most jank mounting Ive ever seen... I'd be worried my cat would knock the cooler off the card and kaboom!
