I have been doing a new build to replace my previous build The 'STY' for some time now.
Unfortunately I am barely literate & prefer to show you picture instead of lots of words.
So to start with the hardware.
So a large brown box turned up
In the box was my nice new graphic card.
And another packet was also delivered.
I like the new EK packaging, it gives a quality feel to the product.
And the symbol reminds me of Transformers
Inside the box was all the fittings etc. (poor picture, sorry)
and a backing plate
One last look before we get naked
I tested the card to make sure there was no problems.
Just hope this will work again
I followed the instructions that were inside the box & removed the backing plate.
GPU retention brackets removed.
A quick look at the naked card.
I then followed the instructions and gave everything a good clean.
The thermal pads were then fitted as per diagram
Rear of card cleaned, thermal pads fitted and rear plate attached.
Now to see if I have not just created a £500 paper weight.
