Smells like a pocket of air trapped somewhere in the loop...try giving it a gentle shake.
Shook it multiple times.

Will see.

Used thermal pads on the right areas and followed DangerDen instructions.

Thermal Pads came with the waterblock. I will order another set of dangerden thermal pads and see if they help.

If that doesn't work, then it is a flow problem. Either blockage within the block or pump.
I checked the Waterblock, everything looked fine. Except my face because now... the warranty is gone.

Thanks for help everyone.

Most water blocks can be opened for cleaning, without voiding your warranty, unless you're talking about when you removed the stock HSF.

I'd suggest removing the GPU water block and check the TIM. Look at the spread pattern and you should be able to tell pretty easily if it was in contact. If it was put on too thick, you should not see 100C temps, but they would be elevated. You'll also see a lot of TIM spread around the PCB if that's the case.

If the TIM were too thin, you'll only see a couple spikes/deformities in the spread, due to very little contact with the block.

If there was no contact at all, the TIM should look just like you put it on.

You could also temporarily remove the pads, reapply non-conductive TIM to the GPU only, and boot into Windows to check your GPU temp. If the GPU temp is fine, it was the pads causing it. Shut down and reinstall the pads.

It's a lot of work and testing, but I doubt it's a problem with the GPU itself.

your block isnt making contact or your pump is not working. I know you said your positive its making contact. But you could be wrong.

This is really simple. There is only a handful of things that can be wrong here.

First we can eliminate fans and radiator and alll that crap buy asking a simple question: Does your gpu hit those temps as soon as you induce any kind of load on gpu? If answer is yes, then your block is not making contact, or the inside of your block is clogged with air or something else. Or your pump is not working. No flowing of water will cause temps to jump high in a second or two.

If answer is no, then your radiator could be the problem. Even if you had no radiator in your loop at all, your gpus would still stay cool for a minute or two under full load, atleast until the water warmed up.

Open up your blocks and take a look, or rma them. If you open your blocks and find nothing, its your pump. Also I strongly suggest dissasembling everything and running leak test on a closed loop out side of the rig. Check your radiator for blockage. Check all parts for blockage. If your radiator was restricting flow to a halt that would cause problems too.
You want to make sure the water is actually moving in your loop. It is possible the mfg messed up on the rad or blocks. Could be a huge chunk of solder restricting flow or blocking it all together. So definately check each part for flow.


edit: after reading the post above me, its a bad seating of gpu block. Im 99% positive your gpu block isnt making contact with the gpu. Its either that, of the gpu itself is bad. Did you run this gpu on air before water? If so, did it run normal or hot?

I have been checking the temps using MSI Afterburner

My TIM on the GPU was Arctic Ceramique. I found some TIM lying around from when I bought my DangerDen GPU Block (its DangerDen TIM).

I re applied it, (I had to take apart my Loop again) OMG WATER EVERYWHERE :<

I have been stress testing using FurMark (for 10seconds, seeing how far my temps get).

My temps are capping at 60c. Waaay better than 100c. I will see how it goes.

Maybe Ceramique was bad (I had to get it because the only TIM I know sells locally is from Radioshack, AS5 / Ceramique).

I will see if my temps dont get high anymore.

Wish me luck

Good luck bro! I hope this one works for you!

I could live with 60c, though it's still high, worlds better than 100c

Great advice, it can determine if you have a bad gpu block.

Could be this, but you seem sure you put it right.

Yes much better, did you use the same TIM on CPU as you did in the GPU?

Maybe that was the problem after all, you cpu wasnt affected coz it had a good TIM, but your GPU didnt.
post #48 of 49
Bad TIM wouldn't cause a 40C increase in temperatures, unless it was dry when the block was mounted.

You put the stock cooler back on and ran some benchmarks or games to gauge the temp (fan ~40-56%)?
