My best mod...

Figured I would start this new forum off with something truly impressive. One of my old systems had CF 6950s (unlocked to 6970s) with a Xonar DG inbetween the GPUs. Unfortunately, the top card started to sag and the fan pressed against the PCB on the sound card causing all sorts of nasty sounds and potential damage.

So... I bent a hanger wedged it under the GPU and tied it to my HDD cage. Problem solved.

funny!! Looks like something I would have done, my 2 builds ago, I had the rosewill Blackhawk and my GPU was sagging, I use like 3 or 4 zipties with the pci-e connector and attached to one of the HDD cages until sag was gone. Didn't look as I had to put the cable routed through the cage but it worked .

That and velcro (for all your less-permanent modding needs :P )

Haha. I was just joking, but that is some interesting information.
