I flashed the LN2 bios yes. The standard bios is still like it was from the factory.

Installed my new hydro copper water block last night. Followed the instructions, but after I noticed a very minor bend like strong island 1 described earlier.

Took it all apart and re installed the block and back plate and there appears to be a slight bend again with them both on.

On a positive note...

Was pleasantly surprised when I saw that I had Samsung memory and not Elpida.

Card was purchased on 8/7/2013.

Was the bend in the block, and did it affect the installation?

I don't think you understood me. I didn't flip the switch, so I was still running the first "slot". What I was wondering was if the secondary slot already HAD the LN2 bios on it and if flashing slot 1 (as I did now) just changed it so that I had two LN2 "standard" bioses? smile.gif

Block and back plate appeared straight before I installed them the first time as well as when I took it apart and redid everything.


Not sure if its a design issue or what. I tested loosening all the screws a bit as well to check and make sure they weren't too tight. Looked about the same.


Its very minor so I am not overly concerned. I just wanted to comment on my experience last night when I saw strong island 1's posting.


I'll be flushing blocks and radiators & leak testing plumbing tonight so I may not be able to fire up the system back up until tomorrow evening.

Ya it happened to both my cards. I think the backplate bending up slightly gives the illusion the whole card is bent. it's really just the top backplate. I am convinced it's because one screw goes under backplate and one over. I was looking at pictures of the hydrocopper cards and they don't have the same problem. It looks like both long screws go thru the backplate on the hydrocopper version. It looks like we bought backplates that were also made to work with the stock cooler. The stock cooler doesn't need a screw in one corner. So if you buy everything separately you will have to put one screw under the backplate and one thru the backplate which obviously causes some issues. Plus there is a little black rubber peice that goes right thru the pcb using the stock cooler. But once you install the waterblock there is now a screw in that hole so the black rubber piece sits on top of the screw and makes the backplate bend up. I might try and remove the black piece of rubber. So people who buy hydrocopper versions wont have this problem and people who buy everything separately will.

Can someone who bought the hydrocopper version let me know if the 2 screws on the right side when looking at the card installed both go thru the backplate?

it looks like there are 2 versions of the backplate. One to work with the stock cooler and waterblock and one that works with just the waterblock. It's only a one hole difference but it makes a big difference. I guess this is a reason to get the HC version. Or we could drill our own hole in the backplate.

But like you said I am not overly concerned. It's a little interesting though. My cards are running amazingly cold. It is a little annoying though because I was really trying to perfect my rig and it bothers me a little bit.

Hopefully EK will either make their block work better with EVGA's backplate or make there own backplate.

Nothing wrong with the Elpida memory on my card. Does 7Ghz with 1.6(stock)-1.61v. Haven't had much time to do any further pushing though. But 7Ghz hasn't crashed for me yet. Will hopefully get around to pushing it further this weekend.

My card actually shipped with the switch flipped to the LN2 bios. But if you flashed the standard bios with the LN2 bios, then you have two LN2 bios'. No big deal though. wink.gif

UPS just dropped off two Hydro Copper 780 Classifieds and an EVBot, you guys think I should open them? They would need to run like 1500 MHz to top my 1.3v Titan's. thinking.gif

Tempting!
