Really? Hmm, I might look into that too.

Edit: The screw bodies of the stock MOSFET screws are far too narrow to work. sad-smiley-002.gif I guess we'll see what EK has to say and go from there.

Yea, between that and the issue with the screw heads for my water block being so tall that they prevent the back plate from installing correctly (all EK products) I'm about over EK. I'm dealing with support right now and the stand-off is already on the way, but we'll see how the rest of this goes.

That is weird too... I haven't had any issues with my back plates. They use like 4 screws on the short blocks + 2 more screws w/ nut+washer on the back of the card.

Man, I've ordered 12 EK GPU blocks, 5 CPU blocks, 3 ram blocks, and 2 mobo blocks over the last 18 months from either EK directly or from FCPU, and have had zero issues with screws or standoffs, or anything else for that matter. Sucks that you are having issues. Wish there were some photos, maybe there is something being missed??

On the Classy block you've got seven(?) screws that connect the block to the PCB, four that pass through the back plate and PCB into the block, then two shorter screws go on the face of the card through the PCB and fasten the end of the back plate to the card.

Ultimately I think it boils down to inconsistencies in the manufacturing process of the screws. I think they'd be better off going with wafer head screws similar to those that come on the stock cooler.

I'll have to take some photos of what I'm experiencing, I'm not absolving myself of any human error but I've built and rebuilt the water block several times now I would hope I'd pick up on it. Hahaha. I'll look at it again in the morning and see what I can come up with. Maybe I've just got no luck when it comes to this stuff.

Edit: Maybe it's because I got everything from PPCS because FCPU didn't have Plexi Classy blocks. tongue.gif

Why build into a desk when you can build into a wheelchair.
Im not joking either.



Would be an epic flight sim (star citizen) themed build. Have the HOTAS and computer built into the chair.

Exactly!

There is a some many really nicely machined parts and ample mount space,im looking for a large but lightweight 1440+ and lightweight UPS,mounting those on too.....only power and a patch cable is all that will come off it. biggrin.gif

Im thinking 2 CL peds winged out behind the chair,PC in one side,cooling in the other.
