I've discovered the problem. If you max out the power target and temp it shoves it full of volts. Yeah, I know what you are saying about the pump. 65c apparently. However I have now fixed it by dropping the power target and temp down to 75c. I still get 1875 clocks and the temps do not exceed 60 (core temp) but mostly sit in the low 50s.

TBH I did not really want to OC the card. I just wanted it to shut up



I need to make a new radiator cover as it's laughably too small. Other than that though? all done

While I love the style of that case, the lack of rad space would kill my soul. No room for a decent 240 in there I presume?

Yup there is and I could have gone with a 240. Look down from the 120, loads of room. Not sure the Alienware fan bracket could take all that weight, though.

That's what I thought looking at your pics, but I figured there was a reason you weren't. I saw your post about GPU temps in another thread. You need to mock up a bracket or something. You have the skills, and that beautiful hardware deserves some better cooling. Such a lovely GPU block!

It's fine now I have lowered the power target and temp. Stays in the 50s. I only really wanted rid of the noise. Let's face it, it's total overkill stock

Well, it doesn't seem to matter how many times you put that crack pipe (water cooling) down it always calls you back eventually. I am not happy with my GPU temps at all. If I load it up 100% with something like mining or a virus (deliberately to see what it was doing) my card reaches 88c. On water.. I should have taken heed of the review BT did with the same water block I have that used a double rad. Thing is, I can fit one too. It will just hang down further is all.

So that is the plan. Also ordered new fans (Akasa have taken over Enermax's fan division it seems) and gaskets etc. Oh, and a couple of AC goodies as well



The rad is exactly the same width, so it should all just bolt in without me having to change a single hose. We shall see lol.....

OK so I decided to do the strip out and drain before I leave. Apologies for the potato pics. There is no light at all today, so I had to use the dreaded flash.

The reason I spent nearly two weeks designing this system was to make it easy to service. And I was correct, it literally took ten minutes to complete. I taped a coffee filter into a jug and went to work.

Two molex discon, one hose and.



And part of the reason why the temps were not too good on a 120. Barely any coolant in the system even when it's full.



And then it was all put down in a safe place.



And put the coolant back. Not bad for oo, about six months?



Wish I hadn't ordered another one now but ho hum, what can you do?
