Someone mentioned it in the club, but there was no permanent damage to the card (mobo may have though). I'll see if I can find it. I've owned quite a few dual gpu cards to know they sag once you slap on a block. Its just a lot of weight for a single card. Since these dual gpu cards are getting more and more expensive, might as well take precaution.

Out of curiosity, I took one fully blocked card and put into the top most slots in my previous 900D when I still had her. Turned around for a quick second to grab the thumbscrews and the card drooped w/ only the pcie slot clip barely holding it in place. The little tabs that typically grab the slots easily slipped off. Everything was fine and dandy, but my fears were reassured that I its just too much weight for my liking in this setup. I didn't wanna go w /the X9 at first since TT support is less then stellar, but it was a good move in the end. Cards sit horizontally and are happy as clams. I got this with the heavy triX oc 290s on their long air coolers. If I do go w/ an atx/ratx case, I'll fashion some sort of support bracket to help them stay propped up. Probably do it stealth style.

Barrow fittings are the business. I just spent $500 worth of barrow fittings straight from China which would've been tripled the amount had I invested in bitspower. Sure, it's a blatant copy, but the quality is there. But to be honest, I really hate that bitspower logo and I don't like that they plaster it on every fitting.

I'm just trying to differentiate myself in my new build. Everybody has the same components, and I like my fittings to not have any branding, that's why I went xspc the first time. Now, if only heatkiller made new waterblocks for a 980 or titan x, I'd be ready for the witcher 3 rolleyes.gif

Had I not had a bad experience with Barrow fittings I wouldn't feel AS strongly as I do. Since I joined this forum I've recognized that a lot of companies that we buy from in the water cooled realm are small business/start-ups whom have been members on here. Intellectual property is what defines their business. As soon as I see larger companies jump onto the scene with blatant copies at significantly lower prices that were made in sweatshops and lesser quality materials, I ask myself if I want to be a part of that type of system. This is only my opinion. I'm all about saving money too but not at the cost of someone else's livelihood.

With all of that said, I completely support competition. It drives the market, but these companies need to have their own ideas and designs.

Lastly, the Bitspower logo really is a bit too much, so I agree with you there, @Killa Cam. Congrats on your purchase! Do you have a build log for it?

I get where you're coming from, but in this expensive hobby of water cooling, I'm always looking to try and get the most bang for buck.

Fittings are usually one of the most expensive parts of a custom loop. So I try to find the best value. The reason I went with barrow was because of 1) cost. 2) little to no branding. 3) not mainstream. Granted, I haven't tested all of my new fittings, but the ones I've used I've been very satisfied with.

No build log yet as I am waiting on the new cards from either amd or nvidia to be released this summer. But will definitely do one since I just purchased myself a brand new dslr a few weeks back.
