    I tip my hat to you sir for the reference to my favorite Depeche Mode song :respect:


    Thank you very much for your help, in all honesty, I would've never done it without your advice, for the first time ever, I feel like I can lay back and enjoy my PC without having to think what my next upgrade is gonna be :laugh:

    Check out this temps after running various games and benchmarks:

    Rarely have I seen it break 40 degrees, I have been playing so many games I have not even had a chance to try OCing my cards :)

    And like you said, the PC is almost silent, a couple of times I found myself checking to make sure the PC was on :p

    Thanks to anyone who has commented in this thread, I might change the barbs for compression fittings (here I go again) but it'll be a while before I do that, for now, I'll just go play some games :toast:

    Awesome. Thanks for that info. going to order some of those on frozencpu when I get my backplate for my GPU when I add my CPU to the loop. Why didn't you screw in any of the other holes. Looks like you only did the 4 around the GPU die.

    That photo was taken before I purchased the screws, the four holes around the GPU are actually a bit deeper (aprox 1mm) than the rest of the holes, so I was able to use the screws that came with the WB temporarily while I purchased the other screws to hold the WB And the backplate.

    Remember, the screws you need are the M3-.50 6mm, good luck with your build and let me know if you have any other questions ;)

    Don't forget to upload pics as well :rockout:

    Yeah I was just looking at some counter suck ones like what come with the backplate. you can get any size, and any thread from this awesome website ive used for case mods a few years back.

    You should upload a close picture of one of your GPUs with all the new screws in and such. :)

    Sure, I'll take a pic as soon as I get back home, dunno how good it'll be though as the cards are installed and everythin and I don't wanna disturb the water loop :p

    You're welcome mate, let me know how that bracket works for you! :toast:

    It's immersive, I know 3D is probably a passing fad, but for me it's actually worth it, makes the gaming experience more enjoyable :)

    Here's the pic you requested, unfortunately is not very good, but it's the best I could get without having to remove the cards from the board.

    As you can only see one of the three M3 screws I used, the black screws are the ones that came included with the water block, and in those specific areas (GPU, I/O bracket and exposed PCB) they work perfectly fine :)

    I hope this helps :)

    A small update, and possibly a name change, this rig shall henceforth be known as The Crimson Dragon! :rockout::laugh:

    This board is a thing of beauty, I'm sure even Aegon Targaryen would be proud of the dragon crest:

    And what better illustrate its draconic heritage than a dragon punch to the spleen!
