Bracket for 7970m

Recommended Posts

I got a dell card off eBay but did not have a bracket. Only one I can seem to find is from upgrademonkey. Here is the link. Nvidia Quadro / ATI AMD video Card Spreader X Bracket for 675M 680M 7970M 8970M

Can any verify this is what I need. Then should be a file the screws, paste, pad and good to go? I've read the stickies but it says just to get a bracket and want to make sure at 70 bucks I'm getting the right thing.

I upgraded from a 5850m to a 7970m and so i compared the 5850m x-bracket to the 7970m.

My experience is that the official x-bracket that comes with the 7970m has scew holes that are too long.

You would need to file the screw holes down to about 3mm. This is so that the heatsink applies sufficient pressure to the GPU.

Please also note that the 7970m at stock voltage seems to run really hot in an m15x. Hence, i am in the process of trying to undervolt. But, i am really afraid to flash a new vbios for fear of bricking the card.
