There's also a plastic shroud to keep the 5970 from drooping.

I Like that PSU. I am just about to order one its a toss up between 3 The Enermax Revolution85+ 1050W , The Corsair Hx-1000 or the coolermaster gold. My TT 750W is making random ticking noises and will be getting RMA'd.
Here is what I done to hold up my 5970.

I like the look of the enermax a lot but looks are not everything. And I dont honestly know which one would be best. I guess they would all be around the same?

They are incredibly well built too. Really thick aluminum. Nice and heavy.

LOL lucky I do not live in Denmark :D . I only put a grain of rice size on there. Spread it out with a plastic bag evenly on the cpu. I cleaned the cpu and block with proper TIM remover and then used a surface purifier to ready the surface. It may be tension related but I will pull it apart and try again.
