I don't believe I can mod the bracket. Has it ever being done? I for sure wouldn't know where to start... That's why I posted here.

Doesn't matter if it fits or if it doesn't. The HG10 bracket doesn't fit my card. I wanted to know if there is ANY other bracket out there that would fit the card, and allow me to use the H60.

Yes, exactly!!! I never checked the compatibility list simply because of that!!

Thanks for nothing!!

Thanks for nothing? Sorry that you didn't bother to research a product prior to purchasing it, that's really not anyone's fault but your own. I'm trying to give you solutions so it's not a complete loss. Things can always be modded. There are likely just parts of the bracket that may need to be filed down or cut. You can always compare the PCB on your card to the PCB of a compatible card. OR, you can unmount the cooler on your card and do a test-fit to know for sure whether or not the bracket will actually fit, or what may need to be modded. What are you basing the claim of "it doesn't fit" on?

In your OP, you were asking for ways to make it work - which I've tried giving you. Apologies that there isn't a pre-made tutorial for you to follow....

See? Wasn't that hard... Thanks for something!

Well, I didn't try disassembling the card, because I have no thermal paste to put it on when mounting it back. Just by looking at it, anyone can say that it doesn't fit "as it is". Both PCI-E plugs on the card are on total different positions than on the bracket. Yeah, I can cut down / file the bracket, but I don't want to do it without a complete guide, which IMO should be provided by a Corsair tech himself MAINLY because of this (see the NVidia seal? What would you suppose):



And thanks again for the feedback.

Good luck getting more help with that attitude and sense of entitlement of yours....I'm done.... thumb.gif

What attitude? I just asked a couple of simple questions... After I went with the "Thanks for nothing" reply, you showed up. And I thanked you for that. I'm not being sarcastic. No one (aside from you, and I AGAIN thank you for that) ever replied, bothered in helping out, or anything of the sort. The first page is filled mostly with criticism towards me for buying a product without checking the "tech tab"?! You guys can't be serious...

"Thanks for nothing!!"

"See? Wasn't that hard... "

No attitude or sarcasm? The context in which those posts were made, suggests otherwise....I hope you get the issue figured out. cheers.gif
