I just meant that I used small zip ties to secure the bracket to the pump/block before putting the whole thing down on the video card. That's all. No big deal really as an even easier way (as discussed) would be to simply install the bracket and screws/nuts loosely in the vid card and then insert the pump/block. I just felt better having things in a "whole unit" type thing so I zip tied it that way. Not really necessary in the least, though.
Enough about the zip ties already! I enjoyed this excellent build log, good photos and guide! Rep+
And another well deserved Rep + to Dwood for the cool bracket, incorporating a fan mount. Very good idea.
It's interesting to note that the substantial reduction in Furmark load temps. was from a Twin Frozr II-equipped 580, not a reference model, which makes it even more impressive.Edited by DerComissar - 4/2/12 at 7:51pm
