LudaconThis seems like a big oversight on a board released this late into the cycle, from a company making a exotic cooling spec'd high end card. It looks like the FTW has a lot more spacing with the smaller heat sinks on it.
Braegnok@zippytek, Thanks,.. I can not find any dimensions on Optimus site to confirm clearance needed for the KPE Backplate,.. lots of folks have been asking Optimus on Twitter for technical drawings, dimensions as well for months.
pclausenThanks! It looks like the chipset pad is 0.5mm and the heat tube pads are 1.5mm. Is that what you used?
