it looks like I am wrong. You bought the hydrocopper version right, and didn't install block. You have the same bend and also there is no screw hole where I am talking about. Lets say you place the card on a table with the backplate up and the fittings facing you. It's the screw in the very corner right above the power connectors. it's the corner closest to you.

Which one. The one above the backplate or the one under it.

I am going to install my waterblock this weekend ..... And would love some guidance regarding this whole bending issue
Basically the one in the corner right above the 8 pin power connectors. It goes under the backplate when the screw on the other side goes thru the backplate. it causes a little funny bend. it's really not a big deal and it looks like all versions of the backplate are the same. I know it sounds wierd but you will see what I am talking about when reading instructions. There are 2 long screws. You must install one before you put the backplate on and the other one goes on after the backplate is on. it's wierd but it's because of the stock cooler not having a screw hole in that place.
Hopefully Menthol can tell us which screw he left out. I must say the performance of my blocks are amazing. I had 2 titans on this same loop which should run cooler but these card are idling at 19c and only getting up to about 35c at full load. Those are amazing temps especially with 1.35v.
