2 out of 5 eggs Bends My R9 290x 01/07/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR CB-9060001-WW HG10 A1 Edition GPU Cooling Bracket

Pros: Cools great and looks good

Cons: I bought a reference AMD r9 290x along with this bracket. Right when my package got to my house I checked to see if the card worked then started installing this cooler. Everything went smooth and didn't take too long I insinstalled the fan along with the cover onto my new cooler. I put it on the card and lightly snugged down all the screws. It looked awesome and I popped it in my motherboard. I was busy overclocking and benchmarking so I didnt notice that the left side of the card towards the exhaust was flexing. I noticed this because my case has a side window, I took the card out and took off the cooler and inspected where exactly was causing the bend. There's a long metel block that sits on top of some of the memory, the block was significantly taller than the other contact points which was causing the card to not sit flat. After removing my card from the bracket, my 290x is now permenently bend. Maybe I got a bad bracket, but I'm still disappointed because I thought so well of corsair. I put the old cooler on the card and will be returning this water cooling bracket.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't buy this again, just do a custom water cooling job on your PC because this thing flexes the card too much. If I did just get a bad one I would really appreciate it if corsair sent me one with proper dimensions so I can use my overclocks.
