EK... Are you kidding?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am in the process of installing waterblocks on my ASUS HD7970 DC2-3GD cards. Got the blocks on no problem. went to put the bridge link on and there is no mounting hardware that came with the links or the blocks or the bridge for that matter. Let me clarify. There is no mounting hardware to install the link to the block. Is this simply chance that I bought 4 links that came with no screws or is EK that lame?

That's a little strange. Both my EK regular 7970 and 7970 lightning blocks came with FC link mounting hardware.

I found the installation instructions online for the links and they were as follows:

Remove the 3 M4x8 screws from the block.

Use 2 M4x20 and 1 M4x25 screws to attach link to block.
These are the screws that are MIA!

Will try to send derrick and EK an email now. Thanks

Mounting hardware comes with the bridges, have a look in the box for it for extra M4 X 20 and M4 X 25


from the Link R48X0/58X0 page

Included:
- 1x EK-FC Link GeForce
- 4x O-ring gaskets

Mounting mechanism is not included since it comes with every EK-FC Bridge part.

Screws came to mount the link to the bridge... but there are no screws to mount the link to the waterblock. I'm sure of it.

Is there only 4 screws in the package? or 6 for 3 cards. It should have a bag like this, with lots of screws. If they aren't there I guess they got left out.

The only screws are the ones that go thru the bridge and fasten to the link. but the screws that go from the link into the block are missing. Believe me, I've checked
