Really nice, did you dremel out part of the back and line it with that rubber stuff?
Just bought http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-204-OK&groupid=701&catid=1914&subcat=1812
Nice one mate!! Pics when it arrives!
Good shout on the reference design. Love the Titan coolers!
Agreed, even in the FT03 Mini the MSI is very cool and very quite - why so few cards that use the reference design?
OEM coolers are cheaper than the NVTTM design (no cast metal shroud, cheaper axial flow fans rather than less common radial), so OEMs will use them when possible.
Going in a Parvum so little option than to go this route.
Yeah, it's a cost thing, which is a real shame.
I know the feeling. I have to use blowers in my FT03 as well, which is why my 780 is a Titan cooler as well (bought when they cost £550!).
Gone up £30 since we started talking about this.
I'm still dithering. Really want the G1 Gaming but it's too long for my case (FT02) but wondering if it will fit if I get slimmer fans.
But those fans in the FT02 are full of awesomeness...
I prefer the non-AP version as they are quieter. They are up for replacement anyway due to age. I'm thinking 3 of these
should fit the bill and also give me the extra room for the G1.
I thought they were bloody noisy.
Your OVERCLOCKERS order will be delivered today between 12:33-13:33.
And now, the waiting game. Will Glenn last until lunchtime without jamming his penis in a pencil sharpener to pass the time? Only time will tell.
Are all my pleasures to be public knowledge?
I assume this is not right? Note the bent backplate.
Definitely not! How the hell have they managed that? Was the card boxed and sealed?
If you have a vice or similar you can unscrew the backplate and correct it to avoid the delay of an RMA, but that's still pretty shocking.
