update to second post
Back to work
Here it is all cleaned up after modding. Added some poor man's u-channel (Electrical tape).
The H220 ready to be drained.
7950 ready to have it's heatsink removed.
I spent a lot of time debating whether I should go with a universal block or a full block. The 7950 core supports full blocks, but I was already spending so much money on watercooling. Universal would be cheaper and could follow me to future builds. So I reluctantly went with the EK-VGA Supremacy Bridge Edition.
Well, after taking the card apart I realized that I forgot to order the copper shim adapter for the universal GPU block. Well, crap. Paying $10 shipping for a $5 copper shim seems wasteful to me. I've emailed Daz about exchanging the Supremacy for a full cover block. Fine. Can't complete the loop this weekend, but no sense worrying about that now.
H220 block mounted.
Fits pretty well, looks pretty nice too. Can't help feeling I forgot something though. Oh no....
Calmed down and re-pasted.
Back in the case. Done for the night.
End of Day 2
