Here's a vid for people who may have trouble with adding a Hydrocopper waterblock to their 780 Classified. Hope it helps.

Simple and easy. Love the toothpick idea. It would have also been great to see how the video card & Hydrocopper looks like in action. Great tutorial!

Cant you put the backplate on with the shim first like what you can do with the 680 Classified.

Not exactly because the first long screw needs to go in before the backplate goes on or else it gets covered up. It's wierd they didn't make a hole for it because that would be easier.

Nice video, although I would have liked to have seen the GPU shim installed.

Actually, the shim was installed. That's where the toothpick trick comes into play and prevents it from slipping around beneath the backplate.

So the shim is under the backplate or on the front?

It's between the board and the waterblock. It needed to go on first because there is a screw that needs to go in before the backplate is in installed.

Okay, thanks.

I'm considering picking up a couple of these, I was planning on waiting until spring and getting them when I get everything for the rig I am going to build then and I had planned on getting the ones with the waterblock already attached, but I've started considering grabbing a one of the air cooled ones now and then buying the waterblock for it when I order a second water cooled for the full build in the spring.

My current rig has a i7-930 @ 3.4GHz and a Radeon HD 5970 2GB. I currently only use a single 24" 1920x1080 monitor in the spring I want to pick up a couple more 24" LCDs to go with it, or maybe a single 27-30 inch monitor with a res higher then 1080p
