I just installed the gpu-180-l06 waterblock on my bfg 6800gt and i noticed that the pcb now has a slight bend to it. I tried loosening the screws on the waterblock a bit, but by the time the bend was gone, the waterblock was too loose. so my question to those that have this waterblock on their 6800gts is whether or not the bend in the pcb is normal. if not, is there any way i can tighten the screws all the way and fix the bend?

i doubt they would make it if it wasnt safe. Im sure the bend is normal.

I've been using Koolance vid blocks on several cards ...I have notice that on a few they can cause a "slight" flex...which disappears when they are seated in the AGP slot....

They bend slightly due to the pressure applied to the core for better contact.

My Asus GF4 Ti4600 "8460 Ultra Deluxe" bent from the weight of its own massive heatsink (http://www.asus.com/prog/spec.asp?m=V8460%20Ultra%20Deluxe&langs=01#)...
