R4E 3930k GTX590 Watercooled Build - Page 4

post #31 of 78
Thread Starter 
Thanks guys.

Just waiting on my EK GTX590 Backplate before I finish all the tubing.
I was thinking of a quick and easy way to remove and change the GPU in the loop without flushing the entire system. Why am I thinking this? Well, a proper full cover GPU waterblock is never universally compatible with other cards (unlike the CPU EK block). This to me poses a challenge, therefore I am thinking of doing the following:

Not quite sure how I'll do it as it's quite a close turn from the CPU to the GPU and the QDC fitting is quite chunky. Might have to get a bit creative with the turn tongue.gif Hopefully is a feasible idea.

You don't have to have the card in the first PCIe slot; you can move it a few slots down (as long as they are red) and you'll be able to fit a QDC over there  thumb.gif

That's very true, but the next full 16x PCI-E 3.0 slot is the one beneath the Brown PCI-E slot. I think that's a bit too low and would take away from the aesthetics of the system.

Why do you need the PCIe 3.0 slot? There aren't any cards that support it (yet)

Right, however if I stick the GTX590 which is a PCI-E 2.0 card, the slots are electrically wired like this

16x

8x

8x

16x

1x

8x

Plugging a PCI-E 2.0 device into any of these ports will make the slots run in PCI-E 2.0 mode, and at the lower electrically wired speed.
You can see the wiring here:

Hum. Took me a while to understand it lol.

 

Ok; but you can still put it in the third slot right?

Sure can, just dont know how it will look. I'm big on the aesthetics of the inside of the case. Not so much the back pannel though.

Coming along nicely!! thumb.gif.....Two things though, did you mount the CPU block upside down intentionally? And IMO you should of left the backplate on the GPU aswell, apart from them 2 things...Awsome build so far!!

Yes, I wanted the Inlet port on the right and the outlet port on the left. I didn't want a criss/cross hose arrangement. Besides, the SB-E's install into the motherboard upside down anyways biggrin.gif

The original backplate I couldnt fit the screws into so I'm waiting on the EK FC-GTX590 Backplate delivery due tomorrow. That will go on soon.
