You would have to take the backplate off.
Get a H100 and you'll be fine wink.gif

What about an EVGA card with a backplate, or do cards with backplates not fit at all on a Rampage 4 Formula and Noctua NH-D14?

I don't really want watercooling as I leave the rig on most of the time. If I turned it off when I wasn't using it, then I might consider it, but I just don't like the idea of having it on unsupervised.

Setup is in Chinese but the utility is in English (because this version is for zotac extreme... available only in China)
tested on my lightning and working perfectly thumb.gif

Good find I had seen that Zotac was coming out with it soon but never followed up afterwords. I was on the hunt for it a week ago so thanks a bunch

It was a really tight squeeze with the Noctua and a card in that first slot that didn't have a backplate, so I would think with any card having a backplate it might be difficult.

more information please see this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1275528/please-read-possible-680-lightning-waterblock-from-ac/0_30

edit:

Please fill in this survey if you're interested. Need to let gary know roughly how many blocks he'll need to order as well as a way of contacting you wink.gif

Excellent news smile.gif

Still wondering if I should get a DCII though for the hardwire RIVE mod. If I can do it just as easily with the Lightning then I would definitely pick up 2 of those blocks for a future water setup.

If you do the RIVE mod you'll have to go water anyway...you do understand all those other guys (tooshort, etc) that did the same thing are on water right? They're using universal waterblocks. You aren't realistically going to do 1400+ on air 24/7 in sli, it would be easy on single card but much harder in sli..

FTW420 has his lightning under water he beat tooshorts score anyway...so whatever...screw asus triple slot gpu's (although I love their mobos) , thats me though. I would have considered an asus but triple slot for sli is worthless and not usable. The lightning has a better cooler (see http://www.overclock.net/t/1286218/twin-frozr-4-vs-directcu-ii or the review at TPU), it is also double slot and has a full cover block being released.

this is ftw's score

I do realize that. That's why I said I want to start researching how to do the hardmod so I know how to when the waterblocks come out wink.gif

Testing a new card and before flashing (it had the New BIOS), it was stable at 1310mhz core but not 1320mhz. So I flashed to new BIOS and maxed the voltage, and it still crashes at 1320? No increase at all? Something doesn't seem right. Has anyone measured the old and new BIOSes with a DMM and compared those readings?

I just ordered my Lightning that should come in tomorrow because a) I kind of lost my sanity and b) I found a buyer for my DC2 TOP anyway. I just really wanna see what these are capable of, as my DC2 TOP is actually only stable at 1300mhz in BF3, and I really don't like the cooler sagging and exhausting air back into my case. Hoping for the best...
