Hey guys!<br>
My name is Andrew and I plan on building myself a bracket, similar to what Dwood did before he dropped off the face of the planet <img alt="stun.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/stun.gif"><br>
I will be mounting my Corsair H110 to my Nvidia GTX 670, but the bracket will also work with Antec coolers as well.<br>
I was interested in seeing if anyone would be interested in helping me get some measurements.<br>
Basically, my dilemma is the fact that I do not own a ton of graphic cards... I own a GTX 670 and a GTX 560. I could really use help figuring out the distance between the mounting holes around the gpu itself.<br>
Here's what I got so far:<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948062/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1948062" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948062/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 622px"></a><br><br><br>
This is a rough sketch, and I plan to do a better job using some CAD software, but around the part where you would connect your water cooler, there's three circles. I found some table online, but it's pretty old and doesn't include a lot of newer models of GPUs.<br><br>
So if anyone could confirm or deny the measurements and give their specific graphics card,<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948065/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1948065" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948065/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 350px"></a><br><br><br>
So far, this is what I have for compatibility (please confirm or deny this, as well as add to it, it would help so much!)<br>
Compatible coolers:<br>
Corsair H50, H55, H70, H75, H90, H105, and H110<br>
Antec Kuhler H2O 620 and 920<br><br>
Measurements for the holes around the cooler:<br>
53mm x 53mm<br>
55mm x 55mm<br>
58mm x 58mm<br>
51mm x 61mm<br><br>
These holes ^^ should fit these graphics cards, and if they don't please let me know! (this is the table that I was talking about earlier)<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948066/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1948066" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948066/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 548px"></a><br><br><br>
With the 4 sets of holes mentioned earlier, all these cards should fit as well:<br>
Nvidia: GTX 780 Ti, 780, 770, 760, Titan, 680, 670, 660Ti, 660, 580, 570, 560Ti, 560, 560SE<br>
AMD: R9 290X, 290, 280X, 280, 270X, 270 HD7970, 7950, 7870, 7850, 6970, 6950, 6870, 6850, 6790, 6770, 5870, 5850, 5830<br><br>
P.S. I really hope I'm not posting this in the wrong forum... If I am, please let me know, and I'll move it to wherever it should be! Thanks for reading!<br><br>
Andrew

I really appreciate it man! Thanks!<br><br>
I kind of want to decide on 3 or 4 holes for the bracket. Any more would seem ridiculous... Which ones should I go for? I was thinking 58.4mm, 53.3mm, 61mm, and 51mm x 61mm.

how are you machining them?<br>
a slotted hole for the amd (53.2mm-54mm) would cover amd recent<br><br>
but nvidia higher end (470/480/570/580/670/680 series ) would be 58.4<br>
nvidia 460 and 560ti is the odd-ball rectangle 51x61<br><br>
if youre using a cnc mill, no problem, do them as they are ordered. if not, you will have huge slots for hold downs that will be weak. you would not be able to do full universal.<br>
i wish i had the software and/or know how to plot out the holes in actual size. might be able to do amd slot plus x70/x80 series nvidia on the same mount. special order a 460/560ti mount.<br><br>
as stated earlier, good luck with your idea.

@PC-Illiterate So you are suggesting that I do not try and add more than one set of holes, and make it per order?<br>
I was kind of hoping to be able to do the slotted hole (53.2mm -54), 58mm and a 51mm x 61mm holes. Do you really think this would be too weak to do?<br>
Would you suggest just doing an AMD bracket and an Nvidia bracket. AMD with the slotted hole and the Nvidia with the 58mm and 51mm x 61mm?

I have the NZXT Kraken G10, and i love it. The Corsair H50 im running to cool it lowered my temps a ton. Good Luck with your idea! <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">

you could probably get away with a slotted amd hole and the nvidia 58mmsquare hole. you would need a heavy washer to keep even pressure im sure. the slot and the hole would probably be close and be weak without a washer. im not a metric mathematician (yes i spelled that without spell correct <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif">) though.<br>
the 51mm part of the 51x61 would basically be right on the 53.2mm hole. you would up with a slot that goes up and then 90* to the right. that would definitely be a weak point. MIGHT be ok with a heavy washer there also. it all depends on what it looks like when its done obviously. im still not a metric man...

<br>
So you are suggesting 1 hole that is for the 58mm hole and 1 slotted hole that does the 53.2-54mm slot as well as an arm that covers 51x61mm? The holes would end up looking like a "y" then an extra hole? I really like the idea of making it universal because then I don't have to worry about making different models.

QUICK UPDATE:<br>
I am currently trying to take my original sketch and make it in google sketchup. Hopefully having a CAD version will help me understand where I need to go with this. I will post pics once I am done.

gogo <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"> i wanted to put some good 140 mm watercooler on my gtx for so long, but there is no brackets for it. btw if you know where are rams located it would be nice to know. Also i had an idea on modding my gtx 770 by cutting original heatsink with grinder to make room for waterblock xD

have you had the heatsink off yet? it should have a separate heatsink for vrm and vram. the main heatsink is bolted on at the same 4 bolt mounting points for a water block.

I have a g10. The way they made their bracket mount to so many cards is that it is only attached using the 4 bolts that hold the cooler in place. What they have is a set of 3 closely grouped holes, 1 set to fit and, 2 sets for differing nvidia cards, the only other contact with the gpu is via 2 self adhesive foam feet which only stick to the bracket.<br><br>
An idea like that may benefit you as it would mean one design would encompass many more cards.

<br>
Where are the foam feet at? Are they around where the cooler goes? Like between the holes? along the sides?

The feet sit at the far end of the bracket, you can stick then wherever you want as they are not supplied attached. I put mine at either side of the end to support the fan that cools the vrms.

Thanks for the suggestion man! I think I will do that... I wanted to support the fan half of the bracket somehow.

UPDATE:<br>
Ok, so I have a very rough sketchup done... Here it is!<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948335/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1948335" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948335/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 201px"></a>

UPDATE:<br>
A less rough draft... I got the fan side all sketchedup and i got the circle with the flanges for the liquid cooler done... Now I just have to figure out the holes for it....<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948346/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1948346" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948346/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 168px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948345/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1948345" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948345/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 137px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948343/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1948343" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948343/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 194px"></a>

UPDATE:<br>
The fan portion was looking really thin, and it was. So I beefed it up!<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948353/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1948353" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948353/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 182px"></a>

FINAL UPDATE for tonight:<br>
I added 58mm x 58mm hole, 53mm x 53mm hole, and 51mm x 61mm hole... How big should the holes be? I made the diameter to be 3mm... It just seemed like a decent guess... Does anyone know?<br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948369/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1948369" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1948369/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 204px"></a>
