Thanks for the tips! I think im going with MDPCX for Sleeving. Just going to make some rough fan cables to get 4 fans per channel to start and get everything up and running.
I was just tracking my packages everything should be here today I will post some pictures I had them shipped to my office.

Lots of posts since I last checked in!

Sure, go with the MDPC sleeving, what I was trying to get across is if you need lots of cheap heat shrink for "shrinkless" sleeving, the link I provided is the cheapest , good quality shrink I've found. Believe me, it's way cheaper than buying elsewhere. Your call, though. Nils shrink is 4:1 and very very handy for some things but is hard to expand without ripping when you need it to be just "a little bit bigger". From a looks standpoint it's top notch as well.

On your fan controller I agree with Addiction, 30w/ch is pushing it for startup current on 8 fans.

For your backplates, have you thought about making some out of acrylic or aluminum? I bought mine from EK but if I had it to do over again I would just make them from black acrylic sheet. Mine are "upside down" anyway and mostly unseen with r-atx.

Let me ask what mironccr345 did with his EVGA 680 4GB card.....he's using a reference EK 680 nickel/acrylic block, and he's got his EVGA backplate still mounted to the back. thinking.gif

You can still use four of the EK screws to mount the backplate. It'll fit where it matters, right under the gpu. Then you can take one of the screws to the hardware store and get the same screw, but slightly longer. I've bought additional screws (dont remember the size), but I haven't added them because my temps. are really good. Not to mention, the backplate is really on there with only four screws. I haven't hit over 39c, and that's gaming for over an hour on BF3. Idle temps are around 22c-25c.

Its the block that really isn't on there when you only use 4 screws. So your saying I thin they comew ith M3 x 4's if I got m3 x 6 I would just use those to secure the block to the board with the plate?

I used 4 of the EK block screws to mount the block and back plate. The only place the screws will catch is right under the GPU. I'll take a pic to give you a visual. You can also go to the hardware store and buy longer screws to mount the gpu with the backplate. thumb.gif

So you are only supporting the weight of the block by those four screws? Won't your pcb bend over time?

My gpu looks to be bowing with the block on it is this normal?

Mine does that a little,I hate it. The way I redid the loop though kind of eliminates it. The tube comes of the pump and up into the card, and it helps push the card up. But yes, it's somewhat normal.

Maybe It will help with the backplate to keep it straight. Or I can find some way to support it within the loop... or just go RATX... hm..
