  1. Most water cooling systems I have took the time to read the manual says to set the CPU fan header to 100%. The one that powers the pump. What if I don't? What if I let it vary the pump speed by temps? Will this damage the pump?
  2. Still thinking outside the box a little but I think I'm done... When I moved my PC,I noticed the card would jiggle a little. Since it's only mounted by the end now. Didn't like that at all. I dug into my RC helicopter parts (where I got the mounting block) and got a ball link stand off. The threads match the holes in the end of the card. So I put it in there. Then took an adjustable length ball linkage and ran it from the stand off to the case. Card is 100% rigid now Might paint the link black...might not...
  3. Update. Replaced the 1060 with an older 980. Mostly for looks, lol Working on a case mod to turn the card vertical. Waiting on the riser ext.
  4. A real quick mock up just for you Will have the top slot cover on when finished and the cover material crooked since it's on there with Scotch Tape. lol All the slot covers will be on and trimmed to fade in behind the card. Hopefully you get the idea.
  5. I got a 980 for $200 at Microcenter. The ti was $240 but always out of stock. Factory refurbished btw.
  6. Also remember this isn't the whole mod. This is simply how the GPU is connected to the case.
  7. I'm removing all those slots but the one I need in my regular case. Waiting on the riser adapter now.
  8. I'm not removing all the covers. This is an old case sitting in the garage. I will have to notch a few for my two monitors but I'll use the stock covers to fill any gaps. Besides,the card blocks the view of everything anyway.
  9. Oh. I see. The USB ports look like something else? Thanks for checking it out anyway. This is so simple it seems marketable. lol
  10. What part seems like more than putting a screw in?
  11. I was about to buy a $50 adapter and thought...I can do better. How about a small aluminum block with a couple threaded holes? I happen to have a few. Fasten the block to the GPU mount leaving a small gap that the case material will fit in. Use the gap to hook the GPU over the slot in the case. Tighten a set screw against the case. Doing the same thing on the other end but have to drill a hole in the mounting tab on the GPU. Not really needed unless you slam your PC around a lot. PCI USB board used for demonstration. I'm aware it's not a GPU. lol
  12. 3GB single fan ACX. Funny...I bought it new for $190 and sold it for $265 today. Atleast those damn cryptocurrency goons are good for something. GPU prices are insane right now.
