Gtx 580 crashing.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I got a new ek water block about a month ago, I have been playing with some big over clocks and after that I did not game for about a week. Now when I play any games even at stock clocks my screens will go blank ( the ones connected to the 580) and my comp will wither freeze or reset. My temps are well under control. Is it rma time? Or is this my corsair 850watt going out?

Sounds like an RMA, you may have pushed it too hard on the OC or maybe the waterblock is not covering the VRMs right though. Although if you are sure you put it on properly than that wouldnt be a problem...so yeah...RMA

Those ek blocks can be a pain to put on, I would see if the thermal material is still in contact with the VRMs and the block. If they are then you need to RMA it.

i got the EK 580 water block and the backplate to go with it. the three screws that go down the center of the backplate and into the block itself are too long, and it doesnt press down enough on the VRMs. cant decide whether i should contact them, or cut the screws myself. it seems like a weird mess up.

I think I will experiment with my card. If I can fix it I will buy another block and water cool both, otherwise I will sell the ek. Block and air cool.
