Do you have 560ti?

I was thinking this + these + front fan pointed towards card
Thanks for quick reply, might prefer to use bracket as it would look a bit better and less error might be made.
Also what TIM did you use?

If your card came with a heatplate you can use that instead of the heatsinks. If your card is a reference card you can use the stock fan that came with it. Otherwise those are fine choices.

I am a Marxist. Not the Sanders/Sweden/state bureacracy kind, but the workers' democratic control over the means of production kind.

I often use the debates I get into on these forums to demonstrate logical fallacies to to my students and debate teams I coach. Beware - your arguments are under scrutiny of adolescents and teenagers!

I just passively cooled my vrm. My case had good enough airflow that it wasnt an issue. Yes it was with a 560ti as well. Worked great.

Looks very good, but I am unable to build one of those frown.gif




Does anyone know what the delivery time is to UK for Sigma_Cool?

Edit: Changed my mind to do it with cable ties instead so that question is irrelevant

Well I don't have many tools or matiriels, so unless I can use some brack I have laying around from a old HSF or even the CM Seidon (which is unlikely) I will probably be using zip ties haha. Doesn't matter to me though, sadly I already have a hideous brown motherboard no thanks to the ASRock images on Newegg making me think it would be black lol

It's just acrylic from a hardware store, and patience with a dremel tool. Surely you posses enough skill to give it a try.

I'm a student at Uni so don't have any of the tools with me frown.gif
I could always just cable tie it for now then when I have a chance could try and make one

Step 1, print drill hole template for your graphics card:
