Looks like it would work perfectly fine.

First post to this board as I've been lurking this thread since I saw this bracket announced and wanted to know all the info before I bought them.

Was really suprized to see them on Newegg 2 weeks ago.

Paired the two of them with Corsair H55's

Cards are EVGA 760 Dual's (formally with the ACX Cooler) ;-)

Routinely was hitting 78-80c after a couple hours of Gameplay... Haven't cracked 40c yet!!!

INSTALLATION TIP:

Don't Zip-Tie anything until you have everything together and trying to mount it in your rig. (probably a rookie install mistake... but thought I'd share).

Ran into problems with the tubes and short distance to the front of the case... Probably would have worked had I only been using one.

Nice! thumb.gif What is your case fan config like? This is what mine looks like, and it's the best i've used so far.

Hey Yungbenny911, Here's the airflow in my case.

There is A LOT less heat in my case without the 4 EVGA ACX fans.

worriedsmiley.gif Don't you think the hot air from the H55's blowing directly on other GPU components like the PCB, VC and V-ram would make them hotter than they should be? While running Valley for about 30 mins @ 1400Mhz/1978Mhz in sli, the air coming out of the front of my case was warm enough to keep my toes cozy tongue.gif.

If you are OC'ing in any way, i would be worried if i was you.

I'm going to oc the cards eventually, my CPU is already to 4.

I want to run this for a while and make sure everything is stable.... which I'm sure it is.... I just like to take baby steps.

I see where you are coming from as far as airflow goes and once I start the OC process I may switch them around!!!

Thanks for the tips!!!

Whatever you do do not use that unisink, it looks like the opening is just big enough to surround the metal bracket around the GPU like it does for the GPU but without touching it. The reason your seeing us ACX unisink aka heat spreader guys modding the posts is because they are preventing the heatsink u use with your g10 to make prior contact, it will make plenty but not enough to keep you from doing what i did. I tried mounting without cutting/shaving mine and my gpu on that old thing I use now for practice and testing fittings has discoloration and solder forming up on the corner that got to hot. 1 of the 3 resistors that line the valley between the gpu and the support bracket around it is fried crispy black the other 2 have been moved out of place because of the solder theat formed up on the GPU. According to EVGA on multiple places in multiple wordings my warranty does not cover me even though I was able to open an RMA but my questions to the tech support rep were completely ignored in the response regarding what exactly my options are according to what happened.

I wanted to write a big long update on my new g10 install with pics and a mention about a video I was recording but i have fibromyalgia and insomnia so I pulled a triple all-nighter working on my room backup PC and then did the full stock ACX factory super clocked EVGA GTX 780 ti to, smart order I chose to do that all in huh? Lol
I did it all super meticulous and overly careful because of that latest mess up and my very old CPU that got fried when Intel i3s were they? The first I series dual core processors I installed it and it fried not by user error but like my gpu only due to companies saying the mobo and cpu are compatible which they were but only the so lets themselves fit lol. So yeah I'm still all extra careful and paranoid OCD about a lot of computer things lol.

Anyways more to the pojnt I'll write up my big update I a couple hours or so I'd do it now but I'm resting after my 8 pm breakfast and rest since I'm waiting. For meds to kick and so sore from all the work on top of pain from the lack of sleep and fibromyalgia combo.

Thank god for the NZXT switch 810 and bottom mounting fans. Those intake to the rads and exhaust right out the front. I also prefer using my Lian Li aluminum fan air duct to take my h110 CPU rad intake air onto the air duct plates and push/pulled out the back or assisted out the front when using a optical drive bay fan or anything similar cooling wise for that bay. Too bad I had to learn the hard way in push pull the rad from corsair h90s won't reach your VGA setups without moderate modding g from the front nor the bottom of that case

Not sure why you are saying it will not work with the GTX 770 Lightning? The heatspeader does not have the posts that intrude in the gpu area like on the ACX heatspeaders. I kept my heatspeader on my GTX 780 Lighting and I'm getting great vrm and memory temps for my overclock. The opening doesn't look much different vs. the one on my card... Heatspreader > individual heatsinks.

I agree with u at the end there but the spacing between the metal support bracket surrounding the GPU and the edges of the heat spreader looks like my ACX posts as if the corners of my post all met to make a square making it impossible for the heat sink to make any contact I don't know what it is but the pic just makes the hear spreader look like it has a smaller opening than mine by a huge margin, maybe it's cuz it black on black I don't know it just scared me, but if it works in jelly I like that more than my chop shop ACX plate frown.gif
