Yeah, after pressing the tubes for 10min the bubles slowly started going away, first the larger bubbles and then the smaller once.

Glad to see you are aware of what the different reading mean, though nothing that I have seen so far says AMD has confirmed what the 3 readings are on their current gen of cards (last gen was exactly that though, Display/GPU core, mem controller, and shader so more then likely its right).

I have read that the amount of tubing in our loops do not have a huge impact on flow (try Martins calculator with 6 ft vs 12 ft). I have also read 1 GPM is a good target for flow in a loop. I am still tinkering with a flow meter and will know for myself soon enough.

While all the screen shots I have seen for GPUZ had higher GPU#2 and #3, most had about a 10 degree delta. Though I don't know how aggressive you are over clocking biggrin.gif

I am with Los Hog, just air trapped in hard to bleed places.

ATM the cards are running stock.

Getting BSOD when i used Trixx or AB to overclock so im limmited to the 950Mhz core clock through CCC.

I had the same problem, crossfire and AB made the over clocking utility a no go. Then I disabled ULPS and it worked like a charm. You can do it through the registry yourself, but I saw this the other day.

Thanks will try that.

I did notice that while i was running Furmark on all of the cards i saw a 7c increese in temps before and after the blocks. So it could be that the water is flowing quite slow through them allowing the water to heat up a lot.

What would be an OK pump to match with my 655, also are there any res that can use 2x 655 in a single loop and has a silver front plate?

I knew there had to be some air in your loop because of all the different radiator mounting positions of all three radiators, tubing has an almost zero effect flow wise. One thing Martin did say in one of his many reviews is dropping below 1 GPM as you go down further below 1 GPM your temps increase exponentially!

To the OP...

When I had that problem, it was because two of my cards were not reference cards (they were superclocked versions) so the GPU processor chip was not making full contact with my Koolance water blocks. If all of your cards are reference cards then I'm stumped...

Yeah, i think i have most of the air out now.

2 of them are HIS cards and 1 Sapphire. All of them are reference pcb's. I'm seeing the same gap between Temp #1 and #2 / #3 on all of the cards so i think its something to do with the loop.

Could someone recomend a good pump to match with my D5?

The best would be a dual pump combo res like this : http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_318_660&products_id=31417 but it has to have a silver front.

Im also open to other suggestions regarding the pump / res.
post #30 of 34
I am still deciding if I like mine (PITA to bleed, but looks nice and simplifies my loop), but there is always Koolance bay res with the optional silver face.
