Do you have any photos you could share to show what kind of strain we're talking about?

help with g10 bracket on 290x. I purchased two nzxt brackets for my 290x's. Both kits are identical except for the mounting hardware, one kit has the 4 cpu hold down screws with nuts and the other has rubber washers with a white strip around them.
The kit with the nuts almost fits but its bending my card so I'm doing something wrong and the kit with the rubber washers screws are just too short. Nzxt was supposed to send me two screw kits but somehow my order got lost and they supposed to send a set out but still waiting, funny they are in the same state as me so even usps should have gotten package here using their slowest service.

Im in same situation, bought new case(corsari 540) and still cant get everything where I want. Corsari H90 on cpu and H75 on crossfire 290x. Your H75 needs to be configured to push air out the case. The way you have setup is pulling warm air into case

While it is pulling warm air into the case, the only things that need air cooling at that point are the vrms on the gpus (minimal impact from slightly warmer air) and the motherboard vrms (which are getting cool air from the rear intake). Honestly this is how I'd set it up myself, with the exception of the top being both exhaust. That way you have two exhausts up top (where hot air will normally end up), 2 cooled intakes (rear and bottom) and 2 warmer intakes from the front.

dosent make sense to me to pull hot air inside case, but thats just my opinion. People are already adding heatsinks and fans to help keep the vrm's cool, so any little bit helps and sucking hot air into the case dosent. The hoses on h75 and h90 are 12" long. At least flip your h75's around so they blow the hot air out the case

Thanks!

In case the tubes aren´t long enough to mount the rad in the front, can´t you just mount them directly to the HDD cages?
I could mount 120mm fans on my cages, not sure about rads though. wink.gif

To be honest it's not so much seeing the strain, as much as it is feeling it. I feel the tubes being maxxed out and actually putting the gpu tword the front in turn possibly pulling the back part of the conductors on the card that are in the pci-e slot. I wasn't able to comfortably even with only screwing the top 2 screws into the radiator mount. and to be honest i couldn't put a screw in the pci slot in my case without pulling the I/O shield of the graphics card(the metal cover that sits over where the Input/output plugs where you plug your HDMI/DVI cables in) so stain i felt was with the metal bracket pulling to the back of the case and the cooler tubes and pcb being pulled tword the front, didn't sit easy with me so i reverted back to the rear exhast.


Also as "pdasterly" noted it, doesn't make sense to pull hot air into the case, after awhile of being under load ect. those radiators will produce more heat than you think regardless of your exhaust supply. Look at how my case is set up theres been minor changes since the picture:

Thx for the reply. Honestly it's a shame because if it's as you say and you cannot have them reach the front of the case, I can no longer do this mod. I wanted to use 120mm clcs specifically because I have eloops and I don't plan to change my fans (breaks the aesthetic).
