Crap is me. I have to take the block back off temp problems. I had 52 on one core and 80c on the other. Tightened them down a little more.now i have 50c max on one core and shut down on the other. Looks like a re TIM. mad.gif

Can you try your other block on the card too? I have a theory that the PLX chip may either be sitting high on this card or the thermal pad is too thick. In my own experimentation if I did not install the PLX thermal pad temps were even and low, and VRM temps lowered by 10-15c also, but of course after I tested it I reassembled and didn't feel comfy running without a pad on the chip. With the thermal pad I had a 10c spread, 45c and 55c was the hottest the were at gaming with far cry 3 and crisis 3 and I only have 4x120mm rad (rs360 + rs120), but I had to really crank it down uncomfortably tight to get the temps. The EK block uses a slimmer thermal pad thickness so it would be a good test. If the PLX chip sits high then the EK block should not really work either because it uses 0.25 on the memory iirc and paste on the PLX. The XSPC uses 1.0mm on memory and 0.5mm on the PLX. Anyways just keep me informed I am here if you need. I think switching blocks would tell us where the problem lies. With possibly one more test of doing the XSPC with TIM on the PLX instead of a pad and see how she runs.

Finally snagged a new mobo so I could slap in my third 7970 that's been sitting around. Thank jeebus the case hides the square mile of cabling on the other side, out of sight.

And had an extra slot to get the Revodrive 3 back in!

Sounds to me like a thermal pad issue. Get some Fujipoly Ultras 0.5mm and 1.0mm sheets so you can play around with them. My alphacool 7950 blocks were extremely stubborn.

I got the GPU broken down again. Looks like the water block never touched the board in certain spots and for some weird reason looks like one of the GPUs was never touched in the middle or the AS5 evaporated. Wonder if that was from the new AS5 I just opened looked liquidy(new word here) or if I did not give the alcohol enough time to dry. Also the plx from what I could tell looks like it was not touching the thermal pad. looked threw the side with a flashlight and the plx pad looked like it was not doing much.

That's what I am using 0.5 and 1.0 Fujipoly have half a pad of both. thumb.gif
