hi i am new here i have been water cooling for 7 years now and had not come across this problem till last week.i have a evga gtx 970 acx 2.0 fitted with an ek water block in it own custom loop with a 480 rad(overkill yes i know),last week i bought a ek gtx backplate to fit my card,now then i have fitted it 5 times now and everytime i fit it its arching out on the backplate you can hear it.
i have tryed doubling up with thermal pads and it only took the nasty ass sound down by a tiny fraction,now 1 person said to me add a tiny bit of insulating tape on point of arching,ok i can sortta see that but has anybody else had this problem and if yes how can i fix it?
its the right water block and its the correct backplate,but as i say never come across this b4,i have tryed just about all i can think of including not useing as much pressure wen doing screws up but again makes no dofference.
has anybody got a fix for this please?please i am begging thanks Gary
i am sorry for the bad grammar and spelling,should have gone to school hahaha
