post #26471 of 38668
Guys, need your opinion:

Just finished my 4x7970 setup. Card 0,2,3 are showing 30c on idle, card 1 ( which is main card, judging from the clocks) shows 45c 0_o. Bad thermal paste? or water not reaching properly?

Loop is parallel with box in and out on top of the first card due to space issues on the bottom.

Need advice, before I'll have to go and drain the whole loop, and disassemble the thing

This is weird, your main card should be the card 0. The one in the first slot with all your monitors plugged in? Do you have a pic of your setup?

Here, the old unfinished pic, but the layout of the cards hadn't changed

GPU 2 coreclock is 500, which indicates that it's the primary card ( all others are at 300).

I've used my old-ish MX2 thermal paste, but it has it's warranty covered for another 2 years hmm. ( thermal paste that came with Koolance water-block had something green inside of it, so I've decided to throw it away).

All the screws are tighten up, I feel if I screw-in more, then I will start bending the PCB

I'm assuming he means sell the games that come with the cards....lol

Hey everybody. I just joined the club and I couldn't be happier. I started with a 7850 back in December and now have somehow finagled my way all the way to a 7970. I absolutely love it. It's this Powercolor. I only payed $290 from NCIX after selling the games. A steal for a 7970. Hopefully the next gen doesn't come out too soon, I'd like to have the best AMD card for a while. smile.gif
