hello, looking for an answer to an odd modding situation.....
i have 2 asus gtx 670 dcii cards with EK waterblocks, In a greedy move by EK, they've made the mounting as such that you can't reuse the backplate.....and personally i think their CKQ backplate sucks harry ballz!!!
ok question time......i have some lil magnets that fit just on top of the screwheads that mount the block on the back of the card....and it just so happens that the backplate mounting nuts are steel!!!
please tell me if you have exp with this or are just venturing a guess......
will the magnets F with the function of the gpu at all???
has anyone tried something similar???
Hmmmm... Columbus took a chance, right???
I would question whether the magnets would hold the back plate with sufficient force to insure good thermal contact with the graphics chips. Also, heat does affect the strength of magnets over time, another consideration.
