hmm.. Enough where if I keep screwing the compression fitting in, it will start grinding away the pcb.

I'd like to keep the backplate on and not to modify the backplate.

Although i'm not a fan of parallel'ing your video cards, it does look very nice.

I would probably still try the small, clear or white (painted) zip ties.. and work with the backplate to orient the ziptie head out of the way. You can get some increadibly skinny/flat 2" zip ties that would be enough to hold the tube at an electronics store or something.

I would probably leave it as is and throw on some fancy koolance clamps (I personally use them in my loop).

BP rotaries should work. Another option would be use standard SLI kits but sleeve them with white tube for looks.

I wish I could do that but there is no room for clamps, the pcb is in the way.. I have about a paper thin gap between tubing and backplate.

Yeah rotaries are going to work, just won't look as pretty.. Never thought about sleaving an SLI kit.. hmm..

Well.. I'll install the rotaries and see how they look tonight.. I think I'll be more comfortable with compression fittings than barbs with no clamps or zipties.
