Hey guys how can I stop my card from sagging I know the ek block is kinda heavy I have my thumb screws in you guys think once I add my acrylic tube it might pull it up a little

My nearly completed STH10 Quad 290x build


Still have to work on wire management, and new matching scheme sleeved cables. But for now, very relieved that I can start using it.

Almost all cards will sag given the weight of a waterblock on them. You'll be able to easily mitigate this though by your tubing giving support to the card if you properly measure it out. Like my GTX classy will sag like none other given the size/weight of the card/block, but my tubing that comes from my top radiator to the card easily supports it into a proper form.

GPU Backplate to suit your card will take out the sag provided everything is secure and in order at the case slot end.

Please do not rely on the acrylic to pull up the card, it will only end in tears.
However a straight vertical tube underneath would be OK to push up, assisting to keep the card level.

If you decide to go with a backplate, postpone doing the acrylic lines until you have it installed, as obviously the lengths of acrylic would be slightly different.

Not to mention that back plates pretty much exist for the soul purpose of preventing warping. tongue.gif

Oh silly me. I thought he was referring to the GPU sagging in the PCIe slot. You are completely correct now that I looked at his photo more closely. Yeah, his card is in dire need of a backplate. They really do make a world of difference in GPU sag/warping.

Nice rig. I would flip your front rad so the inlet/outlet are on the bottom, and maybe run the right side blue tube down and under instead of up and over if you can?

I know there are conflicting opinions and some people say it can trap air bubbles up top on certain rads and take longer to bleed, but It would clean up your tubing a ton by getting rid of all three of those long vertical tubes. I've run my rads like that for years with no issues...personally I think even if it does take a bit longer to bleed, the visual improvement would be worth it thumb.gif.

FWIW it depends on the rad design. My old swiftech MCP-320 triple would catch bubbles on the top so I just bleed it horizontally then lifted into position. My AMS 280 on my GPU loop has no issues at all though and bleeds itself almost instantly. Never tried with my Gen2 GTX 480's...they are way too long to mount vertically anyway lmao.

This is why Bleed caps exist. smile.gif

I have me front 480 facing down, but only because i'm going for ultra minimalist tube exposure. You are only going to see ~8 inches of tubing, with all runs vertical (except GPU to south bridge block)

Even before the block it sagged in the pci slot with a backplate it does not fit now waterblock took all the holes

One more question what's the best way to clean acrylic after you bend it soap not water then a distilled rinse or something else
