He used the zip ties to hold the pump in place while he attached the pump to it, he should have already had the mount started and he wouldn't have needed the zip ties. I am going to make an installation video. I touch on this in the new instructions I am sending out with them but it will be better to see in a video.

EDIT: Also, you should tap the bracket and use screws on the fan rather than cable ties. Just a thought wink.gif

You can use regular fan screws to screw up from the bottom and mount it like I did on my 680.

I could use screws for the bracket fan but hey, my machine is more like a Harley Davidson than a Suzuki... as long as it's low to the ground and blacked out, I'm happy.

And...I just *love* zip ties.

Can't imagine it wouldn't... the bracket is reasonable enough in price that you could buy one and try it. If it didn't work out for some reason, you shouldn't have any problem selling it (the bracket). Def give it a go ...

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.

2 brackets purchased. Awesome. I'm hoping to squeeze every drop out of these beasts while prolonging their lives as well. What fans do you recommend for the vrm's ?

I just used an old 92mm generic fan I had in a drawer. It's a bit noisy at full RPM so I run it silent off of a fan controller. Any 92mm fan should be fine; other than noise, I see no real reason why one would be better than another as just a breeze over that area is probably sufficient.

FWIW: I'm running the same overclock on my 580 as I was with the stock cooler, 920mhz on the core, as I feel this is fine for me. But the temps are MUCH better, now ...

I currently have a Antec 920 for my cpu, any way I could piggy back off the system, and add a block or something to my GPU?
