I want to sacrifice one of my beautiful 290s to the water gods but I'm hesitant to conclude my purchase.<br><br>
I have a h100i laying around that I'd like to use and Corsair states that it is compatible with the bracket and the Tri-X is compatible as well; I am concerned about the VRM fan as it appears that the HG10 is designed with reusing the reference radial fan. Has anyone sourced a fan that will work for the VRM cooling on this setup?

I went my own way, temps are great.<br><br>
Switched from two tie-downs to one after I couldn't get it where I wanted it, one is doing the job fine.<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2398597/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2398597" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2398597/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 467px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2398598/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2398598" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2398598/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 467px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2398599/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2398599" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2398599/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2398600/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="2398600" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/2398600/width/350/height/700/flags/LL" style="; width: 350px; height: 263px"></a>

i dont mean to raise the dead by bumping this old thread but i just ordered a tri-x 290 and i happen to have a hg10-a1 and a h55 laying around. so how did this end up working out for you? did you have to modify the bracket itself in any way or did it actually fit like it would normally? lol i like what you did with the fan mod,im gonna attempt the same thing.

The fan setup worked, as it happens.
