Iknorite?

I had a GTX 570 DCII in an older build of mine. Card sagged a bit, used a "Card Keeper" from a 9800GTX (heavily modified) to support it.

It worked well, but lots of effort for an issue that should have been aparent before they released the card madsmiley.png

I'm testing my new 7950 now and while the stock cooler is extremely effective, yeah, I'm getting some sag too. When I look at the water blocks available, they're all heavy SOBs themselves. That DCII bracket looks like it can be made to support most air-cooled designs, but I'd have to have a water block in-hand to see if they can be made to support those.

Having a backplate will add some extra rigidity to the card itself, not sure how much though.

Maybe you can get a cheaper one or just use a microfibre cloth and very hot water (maybe very mild/dilute detergent)

If it's good enough for this very greasy and dirty cooker backsplash a smaller handheld version could do nicely for your pc case.

I can guarantee you that they sprayed some kind of degreaser before using the steamer. Water, no matter the temperature, will only spread oils around.

Guys?
Any way of connecting 8-pin with psu fanside up?
I have corsair gs600w psu which looks fantastic and have nice blue led lighs but when I've tried to install it in my 3000 case, the 8.pin wasnt long enough and either way (back side and over gpu was too short).

It only fits like that, because cables come closer to the back hole when psu is fanside down as in pics. This is how I roll with my rig right now btw. not even sure if I posted thsoe pics before (prolly yes tongue.gif)
yep -that gpu is hanging on a plastic thingy, because it was bending.(like most nowadays gpu's)

Extension cables aren't that expensive and they look a lot better too

Reach into that 5.25 bay and find the screws holding the HDD cage bracket. Removing that bracket cleans the case up a bit more and gives you more total height from case floor to 5.25 bay if you're putting a rad up there. For now, I have my SSD stuck up there where the bracket used to be until I get the build settled for the long-term.
