I actually anchored mine to the sata connectors on the motherboard once I got a block for it and set it up straight, and it was still easy to see either the ram latches on the x79 board were out of alignment or the card was bent and there was no real fix for it that I could see outside of trying to "unbend" the pcb.

I've also managed to bend other cards, so maybe I'm just special that way tongue.gif

Edit: my 295 did actually die as well but again it's possible that was user error. msi took care of me so it was actually a good experience in the end.

that pic does make it look like it's sagging a lot. Looking at it, it doesn't look lie it's sagging. I wonder if it's the camera angle

It might be too soft.

If you want serious decoupling, get this:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Washing-Machine-Universal-Anti-Vibration-Mat/dp/B00E0JVN7G

And cut to size smile.gif

Or, depending on the base dimensions/square of the device (a pump i guess?) maybe one of these is big/large enough

A few shots of my new custom cables for my Hexgear R40. This was my first try at making custom cables, so I am quite pleased with the result. I must admit it was a bit more work than I had first anticipated biggrin.gif




And a last shot of the case and where it will have its home:
