Kitler - I would just cut off the ends of the bay cover and then double sided 3M tape them on each end to make it flush. The only real trick will be to carefully sand your cuts so they are perfectly smooth and unnoticeable.

Thats all you really can do. Im right there with you. I hate the appearance of the front fascia with anything in the bays that doesnt sit flush. Kinda ruins it for me rolleyes.gif Ill be cutting a slot cover soon so my gvans touch will blend right in completely.

Another option is to modify the existing bay cover or make your own that fills the full space.

900D has the worst thumb screws in the world. It was find because my reference 780 has a shorter cooler but my DCU II makes this like really hard haha. Anyone have any advice for after market coolers?
post #6585 of 8657
Only thing that I can of is to remove the slot covers above and below the GPU and see if that helps screw it on through that gap. I will soon have to do it myself soon with tall cards so I am open to suggestions.

Man I know what you mean on those GPU thumb screws! you almost have to be double jointed. I was tempted to have my wife's smaller hands do it, but I don't trust her. I like Geggeg's Idea, but I'm not sure if that would work?

I got it to work with reference AMD cards but no idea how it would with tall PCB cards.
post #6588 of 8657
Those things were next to impossible with my 780 classy SLI. Basically what I did was I'd hold the screw with both index fingers, bring it down across the cards to the slots one hand over the card the other under it, move it up and down across the top of the slots blind until I felt it meet the screw slot, then slowly screw it in with just my index fingers. Really no other way I could see of doing it.

lol yes I remember that too. Scraped my fingers on the PCB doing it but it also works.

OMG this is exaclty what i came to this thread to ask!

I had a B**ch of a time getting my 2 780ti Classifieds installed. Did something supacasey, held the screw with my pointer and middle finger, tried to line it up and slowly try to screw it in until it grabs enough. it took me about 45 mins to install both.

Problem is now i just got the 2 backplates in for them and i want to install them but that means trying to re-istnall them afterwards. Was seeing if anyone had any tricks on how to do it.
