I would not suggest metal ties. One, they can short. two, they will cut the pcb. Three, you need to be able to cut them off from time to time. Four, you may damage the card and not be able to RMA it due to damage. The cool thing about the mod is no one could ever tell youve modded it after putting it back together.

Id not suggest metal anything, but thats just me.

I wasn't saying it was a good idea to use them...I just thought that u could have possibly came up eith a multi million dollar idea...I didn't know they exsisted already. I mean think how much money the guy that invented velcro has gotten...

My stock fans on my matrix 580 (shroud fans) never go beyond 20% and rad fans 800rpm (H70 p/p).

Wait so are my 110cfm scythe fans overkill in push pull or my 6870? I sold the 6870? But I'm considering new cards.

The hydro series units have some drawbacks over the 620 but there are also positives over what is offered by the 620. Corsairs units have shorter lines (much shorter for H50/70) and the whole line of coolers use very stiff tubing which makes positioning the tubes dificult. The higher end corsair units (H80/100) are able to plug into the Corsair Link Commander units. You now have the ability to monitor pump speed, liquid temps and full control over the fan speed ALSO full auto mode which uses the Link software to control fan speed based on temps....no more manual fan tunning. The Link will keep the fans low (whatever speed you want ie 800rpm), if the gpu starts to heat up during gaming the Link will auto spin your fans up to what youve set in the software..ie 1800rpm. The unit includes LED lights that change color (whatever color you what) depending on the tempature via temp probes that are (also included) or by Link reading your gpu temps via its software.

Right now the Link Commander is bug riddled and causing much issues for users. The Link has just been released so its expected....as anything new nowadays seems to be. Once the bugs are worked out the Link will beable to control your entire system from HDD,SDD, Liquid coolers, gpu, system fans and lighty.

This is a great reason for the Hydro system coolers. I am unsure as to running dual Hydro series coolers off on Link Commander, suggested it will work but untill i see it i dont beleave it lol.

Hope that gives a good reason for the Hydro series vs 620s'. The new corsair units also have longer tubing over the older gen corsair coolers which makes mounting rads much easyier.
