    You could try the lego block technique or maybe some fishing line tied from the top of the case and then looped through a hole on the gpu. I've used the fishing line before on a previous build and it seemed to work.

    i was looking at the photo and noticed maybe I could pull back the 8 pin on the gpu connector and see if it holds it up a bit more.

    I folded a piece of cardboard I colored black and placed it under the end of the cooler near the MB.

    My PC currently looks like an empty case. Had to RMA my FX 8350 and my Asus Crosshair V Forumula after the CPU died and the board started sizzling my GPU's. Such fun. Ordered the MSI Z77 GD65 and an i5 3570k to replace it while I'm waiting. I'll post pics when i finish building it tomorrow night. Then when the RMA nightmare is done, I'll probably build a Media server for my parents to watch films from. Epic use of hardware right?

    I had a similar problem with an old 4850 + Scythe cooler, it was really heavy and it was bent like yours, instead of that cardboard solution ... i used one of the free reference PCB holes in the card (after the 3rd party cooler installation) and used a zip-tie to fix it to some metal of the case (in yours i'll use the 5,25" ones or directly attached to some hole that you have for cable management near the 24pin cable) ... it was kinda ghetto, i know, but it solved the problem pretty well.

    Just finished re routing my new NZXT sleeved led kit - i've set the led intensity to the lowest possible so i'll take some pics tonight to do it justice. Other small changes I've made is I now have the 24pin ATX sleeved cable and a couple of SP120 Quiets on the H100 (where I miraculously discovered that I can indeed run push/pull) - allbeit with only a mm or two of clearance over my ram lol.

    cant understand you guys all those fans.

    The more you put fans on your case the more you collect dust and general noise...

    The more fans you have the better the airflow thus lower temps for gpu, mobo and cpu. Yes it does create more noise but this is why i have only added quiet fans. None of my fans spin faster than 1500rpm now, so its still as quiet as it was at stock. The gpus are now the loudest fans in the case.

    Done properly with quality, lower speed fans and sound/vibration reduction mounts along with filters and or proper cleaning/vacuuming of your room, this isn't an issues for most people. :cool:

    Yeah sometimes I may take up to 2 hours to do cable management in a old rig.

    I broke two pins in my CPU socket today! Computer seems to run fine at stock... just debating paying Asus to fix it or to get a new mobo..

    Mate, im gutted for you :( I hear its a pretty common issue with Z77 boards. I'm dreading ever upgrading from i5 to i7 for that very reason.

    How happy are you with your board? i guess is the question you need to ask yourself now. Hope it gets sorted soon man.

    Love the board, OC's good, onboard sound is the best onboard I've ever had, Intel Ethernet, it is solid.

    Just bought a new one. :shadedshu It's going to cost me $120 bucks to get this one fixed.

    I wish.


    VCCSA pin gone and a VSS pin is gone.

    VCCSA pin missing is what is probably not allowing me to get high OC anymore. There are 100's of VSS pins, missing one isn't going to hurt.

    Pretty easy to see which two are bent.
