Mounting a res to a gpus backplate?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, I currently have a watercooled loop which does only the CPU. and as my case is NOT designed for custom loops there is limited space. I was wondering if I could put the res on the backplate of a graphics card as it will help space alot. Atm I have a small kink in tubing and would really like a solution.

 

Case: S340 Elite


Specs

CPU: Intel Core i7 6700k @ 4.6GHz

CPU Cooler: EK Water Loop - Pastel White Fluid

Video/Graphics Card: Zotac GTX 1060 6GB Single Fan (+220 core, +225 mem, manual)

PSU: Corsair RM750i Modular PSU - with Silverstone white extensions

RAM: 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum (8GB x 2) @ 3000MHz

Peripherals:

  • AOC 29" 1080p Monitor (2x)
  • ASUS ROG Cerberus Headset
  • Corsair K90 Keyboard
  • Corsair RGB Strafe Mouse

fair bit of weight pressing down on the PCIe connector. 

Also don't ignore this if you have one of those "reinforced PCIe slot(s)" chances are it'll just break the graphics card anyway.

Yea like they stated, the weight would bother me. I wouldn't have any concerns about doing it aside from that.

Uhhh... The S340 is perfectly capable of fitting custom loops. You can fit a 120mm in the rear, a 240mm in the front and (I think) a 240mm at the top. The weird cover thing that covers your 24 pin cables and whatnot? You can mount a pump there with a bracket.

You can get a 120 mm adapter and the combo could mount right on the radiator if you have a rad on the front.
