    The Cable ties are installed below the cpu cooler and video cards to support the weight. They were clearly bent and twisted.

    Not that it matters. it will not damage them or lower their market price much anyway if these are deformed. the parts are already antiques. But I've seen scary things happening due to heavy coolers if left unattended.

    i thought that this is the reason , but this card's look so small and short so i didn't think that they would bent that much , my HD6850 for example is longer then this with not so small windforce 2X cooler and it almost doesn't bent ..

    Here's my share of ghetto modding. On my previous case I didn't have to worry about actively cool the RAID controller's CPU as I had a 120mm fan blowing right on the PCI-E area. Yesterday I remembered to check the controllers heatsink, it was really hot to the touch, so I decided to do something about it. :D

    I also wanted to keep it kind of stealthy :laugh:

    Plugged the fan onto CHA_FAN1 that was right next to the slot, now at 3300RPM, it's pretty silent too. So... win :D


    Cheers :toast:
