ill say a prayer to the gpu lords tonight..too lose a expensive gpu..isnt a nice feeling..
do you have two of these cards?
well if it turns out the card is boinked just make sure to carefully remove the added hestsinks ..return card to original state and rma very quickly..now im a all about being honest..but rmas are very tricky smtimes even under legit circumstances..
so what ever yo do..dont tell them you mod the card..be sure to clean all of it nicely..especialy were the heatsinks were

Yea we all hope your card is OK. Cause It looks perfect the way you did it. And I didn't realize just how cramped your case is. I don't think you can move the tubes enough too get your second card in. headscratch.gif
I sure hope its Ok. Maybe its too much twisting of the pcb and it needs the back plate ( not really a back plate more like heat plate),to hold everything straight and provide a good ground path. I don't know just thinking out loud. I couldn't get the tubes all the way flat without doing a mod on the pump, so I'm thinking of trying something like that. That sucks I wanted to see your mod workout good. I was going to do mine something like that. But now I'm thinking maybe got to get a back plate or other. Aaahh crap hate to see all that work for naught. mad.gif good luck to tomorrow trying it back to stock. redface.gif

Oh was playing out back and made this for the VRMs. Thinking of modding the pump an H-55 to push water through this also, and using copper heat sinks on the memory. Its refrigeration line and the bottom of a heat sink from an old mobo VRM cooler
. Pretty bad soldering but every time I tried to do something else the hole thing would get hot and start falling apart. Copper sure transfers heat well he he. kookoo.gif

oooo...myyyy...uhhh???

yeah..mod the pump..why not try make same thing but..the under part of copper too..like maybe take vrm copper heatsinks..flatten them ..solder them.plus..make the pipe in/outlet both vertical and short..like 1cm each end ..itll make it easier to attach tubes..and shorter the line..the better the flo..

Yeah, the tubes are definitely blocking the second PCI slot but I think it'd be possible to mount the pump so that doesn't happen, but it would put more pressure on the tubes. As far as putting pressure on the PCB though, I actually added a fan grill to the fan on the radiator and zip tied the tubes to the fan grill, so hopefully a lot of the weight was being transferred to the back of the case where the rad was mounted.

That heatsink you've made looks awesome, hope it all goes smoothly! A few more hours at work before I can test the stock cooler...

Thanks guys. This was just a wild hair idea. Going to do a better one and your right X it needs the bottom made of copper. That aluminium does not work well. Kind of just  wanted to see if it will work with the pump. Then go for a clean version. If it will flow good enough maybe add on the memory too. Today I got the plumber to give me a big piece of 2" copper pipe, nice and thick with plenty to play with.

oh yeah..do it do it do it do "it"..
while i was fooling around with the antec920..with 1/4 3/8 tubing that came with it( reps/props to 66'racer)
yes..pumps arent the strongest..but when these new tubes go on..add a res..bleed it out..the flo of water..man i was impressed.
now i dont know how strong these new aio are..but if they r anywere like this..

your gona be just fine doin this mod mike..ive got a nick name for ya ( just a joke..no punn intended- magic mike)

Sorry for my slack posting! tongue.gif

I tried the stock cooler last night and no luck, the card still had all the same problems unfortunately. I couldn't see any damage on the card which is good I suppose but I did notice a strange brown mark on the pump's copper plate, it kinda looks burnt... I gave it a good clean with 99% isopropyl alcohol but the mark wouldn't come off and it definitely wasn't there before I installed it, so it could well be key in figuring out what went wrong, will post a pic later.
