Don't dremel anything near that card you'll get shards of conductive metal all over the place. I'd honestly give this up as a bad job and put it down to experience

you can see a bit of the metal on one of the 4 posts (the right one) it got rubbed raw from the cooler....

but im wondering if the block is still okay cuz its not bent or anything and thats so far away from the gpu itself, do you guys think the g10 & its block are still good to go?



heres more pix including one of the still working card in the build im using to type with right now...

Looks totally ballsed to me. Send it back, hope you kept the warranty sticker and put it back on right. No idea why you bought anything other than the stock card if you have intentions of watercooling? Bound to run into problems like that imo.

Hope you get a refund

lmao had no clue we had a fml thread, im gonna be using that plenty with my awful luck... its been rather good lately.... till well you know QQ lol

The warranty sticker was never tampered with and is still on the back of the card itself, i can easily reassemble it and then contact evga about it i did register it the day i got it so i have the warranty, i just dont think they will quite care about me if i send them the card in that condition even with the original cooler... although it does still work with that cooler, just too much heat and it shuts 'er down...

whats the vote, should i even try sending it in?????

You're encouraging illegal behaviour...

Consider this a warning, unless you're joking..

@OP: DO NOT stick it back together and send it back... serious fraud if you do... EVGA aren't stupid and will see the damage on the gpu, the surrounding components AND the metal bracket, it won't take much to figure it out.


Ontopic: The cooler looks fine, but I still wouldn't risk putting it any where near your other GPU, and I wouldn't cut the metal bits off either. It's not compatible without modification and those modifications are going to break your other card.

I'm curious as to why you removed the ACX cooler in the first place, It does a good job of cooling, I know it dumps the air inside your case but if you have good ventilation that shouldn't be a problem.

It looks like the die was never properly cleaned in the first place, leaving a bunch of thermal paste behind around the die. As "non-conductive" as the previous paste might have been... it could have shorted something. Go above and beyond to make sure the part you're dealing with is cleaned 100%.

As far as "tinting," it needs to be done with GPUs.
CPUs are arranged in a way that their cores are centralized or located in a certain manner. GPUs use a lot larger piece of the die.

Ok now i'm beginning to understand where the Poseidon fits in the graphics card market.

Just accept you truly noobed it sell the cooler and card as spares and find a better solution that's actually compatible. I will help you out and buy the EVGA fans off the ACX cooler if you want. It's a sad day for hardware
