Honestly I just used a pair of neddle nose pliers and got them off when I replaced my bracket. if they give you trouble try holding a lighter (lit lighter of course lol) to each one ans heat them up one at a time and remove it while it's hot. That should make it easier for you. Good luck and hope this helps... =D

Hey I just ordered the system listed below, any advice before I start overclocking?
post #1313 of 1902
Yeah, Flash the BIOS first and foremost and then get all your components in correctly and then install and load windows (I know that this is obvious but you'd be surprised at how many people don't do this). Then keep factory BIOS settings and run some stress testing to make sure that your components are all good to go before trying to overclock because if it fails stress testing at stock settings then it wont pass at overclocked settings. Then go and get a guide and follow it to OC and make adjustments accordingly. Let us know if you need any help getting the OC done.

Hey guys, I have 2 of the EVGA GTX 470's running in SLi.

Has anyone ever cranked up evga's precision tools? Ive only turned the fan from auto to 70 (during gaming) and its pretty damn loud!! Just wondering if anyone has changed any of the other settings of the precision software?

Also, I see a lot of people on here with the EVGA cars, but they are using MSI's software... Why?
