I created a gasket around the fans that seals any airflow around them forcing them to draw air in through the magnetic fan filters for a maintainable air intake smile.gif

That sounds like a huge PITA.

Well done tho thumb.gif

performance pcs use peanut foam for their packages which seems safer for me

Can't see the video cuz I'm at work but pretty sure they hand pack them as I've been on the phone a few times w/ them while they were catering my orders as I put in pretty large ones at a time.

I got all 4 of my UT60's (480's) from FCPU and they came in just fine. I think the paper packing is actually better because it moves less while the peanut packing and still allow it to bang around a bit, though I've been ordering from both since day one and haven't had issues w/ either and I've gotten ALL my parts from them.

Pic below, my RAD's came in from FCPU and my AP-15's came in from PPC's I went w/ PPC's for the fans since they had them @ 16.95 + free heatshrink etc that + their 8% off code for anything over 250$ biggrin.gif I saved about 74$ on my order I think total ( ordered other parts too ) I have a copy of my receipts in my build log, as well as organized as per store if you're interested. Need to update it today w/ the few recent orders I just placed.

Either's fine it just comes down to pricing I guess, and don't forget your coupon if ordering from FCPU/PPC's and if not then google up for coupon codes if the site is well known.

Pretty much this, both PPC's and FCPU have been lightening fast. In fact the only issues I've had are w/ the shipping companies. One time a package was mishipped, and or issue w/ the post office so vs waiting for it to come back since it couldn't be updated FCPU sent me a new one out the same day w/ no charge, and that was a 700$ order + they upgraded it to priority express for free.

I have a habit of getting my orders in late on the dot and I put notes in asking if it'll make it, their manager even calls me to confirm it's going out and or that he's packing it currently. They're really great @ customer service and nothing I can blame them on. So far I've had about 230$ + worth of shipping refunded to me from both ONLY due to packages being lost from xmas holiday shipping.


On another note, holy crap my fingers hurt lol, I can't even unscrew a water bottle cap I have so many cuts from threads etc, I must be doing something wrong.

Sigh, bad news

it seems like the ram handle interfere with the thick backplate itself, thus the card can not be seated properly



I might try to trim the ram handle but still not sure frown.gif naked GPU back is not sexy at all

FCPU, hand packs and truthfully is a better way to package goods, less movement = lower chance of damage thumb.gif

Had a similar issue keeping my AC 680 backplate on, so I ended up using the evga one that came with card originally.
They really need to do something with their backplate, but who knows, it might just be an issue with some Asus Mobos
not having enough room between the first PCIE slot and the ram handles. My board is a MVE.

32 fans, and lol thats like 1% of my collection.

Also using diamond gnurled revolver fittings. The ghosts are ok though just to clean for my tastes. The wrench sucks tbh and in tight spaces = useless cuz you can't get it in there I hand tighten it all for safe practice.

I'm a horrible photographer so please don't criticize too much smile.gif Also the acrylic tubing is quite flawed frown.gif None the less i'm really happy with it and hoping to get some decent clocks out of the GPU. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Restriction in general is massively overhyped.
This.

If it was damaged in transit then the whole corner would be trashed.

RMA.

The only way to get rid of the solder-joints was to 'step back' to round tubes which can be fitted with o-rings.
The rectangular/oval shape of the pipes used on all the other rads would simply collapse and not make a seal with the use of o-rings. Or you'd have to use far thicker walls on your tube which wouldn't do the performance any good either.
So the decision to ditch solder altogether and have a rad that can be disassembled forced aquacomputer to use the round tubes which let to the higher restriction of these rads.
