Looking for a 680 block that won't bend the card over the PCI slot

If you guys know any, feel free to suggest them. smile.gif

PS,
Better if a block is known to work with the 670 ftw as well.

Thanks!

XSPC Razor 680 which will fit the 670 ftw.

I have 2 of them and there is no kind of bending.

I suggest ordering a Evga 670 ftw back plate as well or a custom 1 for an even sturdier fit.

Yeh, I heard their 680 block will fit. I saw that now they make a full cover block, is that the one you're referring to? I actually like the one they did previously, which is not entirely full but looks nicer. Thing is I think it's hard to get now and they also produced it only in silver.

I already have the evga backplate for my 670 ftw. smile.gif

Damn i thought you would still be able to buy the original Razor blocks.

You might have to settle for the new 1 but even if you can find the first version you will be very happy they perform well.

K then. I also asked a guy on the bay who sells the full cover block and he hinted (by offering a support tool) that indeed it makes the card bend. I'll try to look up the old block. Meanwhile, yesterday I made an order from PPCS, got me a Raystorm for the cpu and bunch of other stuff. What I'm thinking now is maybe I should have waited for Black Friday deals. :facepalm:

I seen one issue with the new block where a OC member showed some slight bending and it might be due to the decently thick acrylic they implemented.

Take your time with the install and of course install the EVGA back plate which will help some. I highly suggest if you can swing it to purchase another card and water block for SLI. It will allow you to bridge them both and add a serious amount of rigidity to both cards and of course more performance.

Yes I also had the sli thing in mind. However, no funds for an extra card atm. :\
