UPS just came and left. FedEx cancelled a pickup here too, and my mail lady hasn't shown up, and I have a crap load of mail to send out. BLEH! If I was allowed to sign for it there, I'd shuttle off to Secaucus and pick it up myself. I'm itching to start tearing my rig down and start building my loop!

You obviously have the tracking number right?

Go to UPS.com and enter the number and see if you can request customer pickup. I remember seeing something like that when I checked this morning.

Give them a call and see if that's possible.

lol...I wish it was at the UPS sorting facility...it's at the USPS sorting facility. Didin't realize the way super saver works with Amazon. It's a FedEX (primary shipper) transferred to USPS (secondary shipper) thing. Never again.

Ahh well. Guess I know what I'll be doing this weekend if indeed it does arrive Friday.

My backplate and bracket has arrived!

But it looks like someone forcibly pressed on one location of the thermal pad so that it's not completely flat on top now. Hopefully that levels out when I install it.

'Gratz!

It'll level out under pressure and heat.

Where are you getting your bracket from, EVGA is not listing the High Flow Bracket as a buy now. All it says is "notify".

Maybe he (don't remember) got an EK backplate....you can find those on performance-pcs.com and sidewindercomputers.com.

(and FrozenCPU.com, but their prices are inflated)

I'm looking for the bracket, not the backplate. Those I can find, it's the bracket that seems to be tough to find.

Notify ne means it's sold out. I must have gotten lucky. I ordered from EVGA Thursday.

Also mongoloid how tight are the screws supposed to be? I don't wanna strip them small torxes.

You are using the nylon washers, yes?

Just tighten until you start feeling tension...I usually tighten them to finger-tight (until I can't twist them using only my forefinger and thumb on the T6...then again, I have meat-hooks for hands.)
