Thanks.

Some pictures of EVGA 690 with backplate..

This card is heavy....


Should have thought ahead and not ordered a backplate; if you have a reverse motherboard build ..

My options for placing single 690 - I guess are Slot 1 and 4:


In Slot 4:


Full view which will "show off" the EVGA Classified Motherboard:


Top view..


This is lowest view I can get on a raised platform..and you can barely see the back plate in Slot 4


Will see tomorrow how it will look in Slot 1

it's the details like that "mistake" that'll make it a really good build though

i tried cleaning it off with small amount of windex and soap...nothing
As already replied by e-mail it is only a natural chemical reaction from the copper. It seems that someone accidentally touched the surface while assembling or packing the block. It has no impact on performance at all and is only a visual flaw.

You can easily fix it when you want to: remove the copper base, place it in a dish with water and add some citric acid. It will slightly etch the surface so the discoloration will disappear. That sounds dangerous but it is not at all. It will also not harm the surface in any way.

Thanks Shoggy. Updated private forum in mdpc with response, but not here at overclock.

I'm in for this one. Love what you did with the PSU. Will you confirm whether the cables are run straight...with one pin to one pin? Read somewhere on here that it was, but would like confirmation. Sure would make it easier to sleeve if that's the case.

Great work so far - we have matching PSU's lol, I was going to paint mine too, but I'm slacking as usual. Yay for bimmers too - I have a 335 thumb.gif

There's no need to move your car or protect it when you're painting your case...





Just park it close and let the overspray do the car also....

Thanks for reassuring me that it was a good choice.

.
Yes confirmed. But for some reason the +5V sleeving and wire are smaller gauge than rest, including ground. Will post pictures later.

Thanks Stren. By the way did you win your SuperNova in a competition (Think I saw your name on winners list). If yes, EVGA will never consider me for future events, after seeing what I did to their PSU..lol.
Also getting some grief to find a way to take that handle out of powersupply in another forum. It is so embedded in the circuitry that one would have desolder the input power and switch and remove 4 screws to get to the nuts that hold that back handle in palce. If you do this and find an easy way; let me know.

Wicked build. Love the colour scheme you're going for, especially loving the white. Giving me heaps of inspiration for what I'm wanting to do, seeing as I have 200ft of White paracord ready to be sleeved and will be buying a ton of White spray paint.
