Ek GPU block install question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, just a quick general installation question/ Im currently waiting for my color back plate to come in stock from EK. I was wondering if I am able to install the block onto my card and use the stock back plate just to mount the card in the mobo so that way i can run my Hard tubing , while i wait for the backplate to come in. Is there any danger in damaging the card by doing so?

Thanks in advanced for the help!

Which card/water block? Generally you don't need to install backplate in order to to run your hard tubing.

its the new founders 1080 and the EK water block associated with it. I just wanted to place it in the case so i can align all the right tubing, just wanted to not harm any hardware, not sure how much stress the block would place on the card without a sturdier back plate

Yes, no need for backplate when planning out your hard tube.

Perfect! I figured it would be fine just wanted to double check before possibly damaging 800$ card
