    Thats why we call the TRUE Copper 'The King'. I think he made the almighty Fermi look pedestrian and cool.

    Hehe ghetto zip-tie mod.
    Signatures make my posts look huge... but I'm not humble enough to completely remove my signature, so I kept this note explaining it.

    I think the San Ace on the True Copper is too small. /sarcasm

    Loving this mod. We need some way to do backplates....

    Go custom. Shouldn't be too hard IF you have the proper tools.

    Unfortunately all I have for metalworking is hammer and a can opener XD
    The thing I was thinking about... i wanted to make proper metal mount before i saw this.

    GF-100 Bolt-Thru-Kit is my solution, if you rather pay than get on with tools.

    @ Ccaution - delta's are toys for babies, if you want the real thing try 300CFM counter rotating fan from Sun Ace.

    @ DomagojX - hehehehe, sick temps

    @ dienicy - GF100 ihs is not removed

    HMM. When you think about it, this might work even better in a case: get one of those full towers that have provision for both top and bottom PSU mount. Then mount the PSU up top. On the bottom provide a stand to support the top of the heatsink to keep it from pulling on the vidcard. Might work, and then you'd never have to worry about gpu temps again.

    what a dangerous procedure this must have been with all those tie wraps. luckily the g100 is fine on its own and using a true for the GPU HSF is nuts and placing a san ace. i would never thought it would fit
