Think I have finally got it sorted so now back to flexible hose and my trusty UT60 - oh well !!!! Now for some testing to see if it is really ok.

Many thanks to all those that helped on these issues - saved my sanity.

Ps my Titan X block and backplate turned up today - so fitted those as well. Titan now idles at 27 degrees.

Woot, Woot wheee.gif. That's the first thing that came to mind when you mentioned you switched.

Sorry I couldnt get you pump rpm for your pump concerns. My mb is in horizontal and with all the components, it's a pain to get to the cpu header.

It looks like the factory over tightened the screws causing hairline fractures in the plexi. It won't leak, but I think that is eligible for RMA.

My EK Supreme HF CPU block has those hairline fractures where the fittings screw in from me over tightening the fittings.

May be but they were ok before installing.Could be because the gpu block surface was not flat and it did stress the plexi after installation?

Are you sure they weren't there before the install? You said you noticed them afterwards, maybe you missed them before the install?

Ok guys here are the tests I promised. (Took longer than I thought because I decided to make them into .gifs but I said I would do it!

Let me know if the gifs aren't working for you, I can just post pics.



As you can clearly see in the last .gif the blue looks MUCH better after the item was painted white first.

To my untrained eye, I'd say take off the backplate first and see if the PCB is still bent. It could be a problem with that.
