Gigabyte 670 + XSPC Razor (new style) Incompatible!!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just thought I would let you guys know, in case anyone was looking to get one.
I don't know if you guys already knew this or not, or if I made an uneducated purchase, but here is a picture of the problem.
As you can see, I literally had to TAKE OFF the plastic housing for the power input. You can see where it would have been too tall, compare the height to the other one.





Luckily, after breaking off the clip from my PCI-E power cable, it was able to fit directly onto the pins.
But for those of you who don't want to butcher your stuff, you've been warned!

It's stuffed with towels due to a minor leak tongue.gif

I have the same graphics card. I was thinking of getting the XSPC Razor gtx 670 waterblock. Is it still causing u leaks? as for the 6-pin power connection, is there any other problems?
P.S If u could recomend a waterblock, it would be much appreciated?

I have noticed that the mounting pressure isn't very good. Only thicker thermal pastes would spread. This is resulting in not-so-good temperatures. I may have to get a thin copper shim to place on the die to make up for it.
The leak was from something else.
Other than that, nothing. I'd go with something else though, unless you feel like a lot of messing around.

Even if you couldn't fit the acrylic top, you wouldn't be losing out much. Just look, but you'd still get the improved performance (so they claimed) over the first rev because of the finer fins. smile.gif

Also make sure you have enough pressure on each screw. And if possible, I'd highly recommend getting a backplate. It's very heavy as you can see.

Yeah, I'm getting some really bad sag.

Does your 670 have a reference PCB or a 680 PCB ?

I have 2 670 FTW's with XSPC Razor blocks with no issues to speak of.

It is a 670 with 680 PCB.

Must be a design flaw with the new acrylic block because the Razor blocks do not have that issue.

It may be a minor difference between 670 on a 680 PCB vs a regular 680.
