Hey guys,

So I own a GTX 1080Ti FTW3 Hybrid. I’ve had the card in my Phanteks Enthoo Evolv for about 7 months now, and I love it! One day, about a week ago, while loading into a match, I was just looking at my PC. I suddenly thought that my GPU’s tubes running from it to the Radiator may be too... what’s the word... cramped? I was worried that maybe there was too much stress/tension on the tubes, specifically near the radiator. Is my GPU/ GPU Radiator position fine? Do I need to move it?

Thanks

(BTW, sorry for the horrendous photo quality)

    You can upload the image here, for free, no account required:
    https://www.techpowerup.org/upload

    Then post the link to the image here.

    Since you are a pretty new member, you probably won't be allowed to post links. The forum software will remove any links you post if it detects it as a link. So, to get around it, break up the link with some space, so that the forum software doesn't detect it as a link. For example: www. techpowerup . org

    If there is not a kink or a crease in the hoses due to the bend radius being too small, you're fine. You'd have to pull with several pounds of force to cause any issues so I would doubt tension would be a concern.
