And I think the PCB has kind of just taken that form from getting hot and sagging because of it. But take a look at this picture, as thats what it looks like currently
Other then that. Ive decided to complete all the system cabling now before getting the res/pump all connected so that none of it is in the way. Just got to connect fan cabling and DVD drive.
Don't sweat things so much. You can reduce a bunch of your card sag by using the tubing that goes to the res to hold it up, and maybe even shorten your run to your rad. Most people don't notice the sag as much because the card doesn't sit in the case for days not fully plumbed. In a pinch, you can even fix your cabling to help hold your card up. You can see examples of both methods in my case, the tubing from the cpu, and making sure my cables aren't pulling down on the card.
You're off to a good start, and are gonna be stoked before you know it.
