Ek GPU block Overheating Why

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I have just finish installing my two EK FC GTX 580 Waterblocks to my two MSI GTX 570 with a EK FC Bridge Dual Parallel - SLI Connection and the Cards are over heating 80c and rising, I also added a Single Rad and a new DangerDen Monsoon Res to my system. Where did I go wrong.Here is my loop.

Monsoon/Pump/Res>Thermochill 120.2 Rad>CPU>120.1 Rad>GPU>Monsoon/pump/res

I am using MX-4 and followed all instruction from EK and I am using all the stand off that came with the blocks. I also was thinking that was the problem,but both block are over heating.That is strange for both to over heat.
