I'd say try remounting your block then. Even with those ambient temps, your load temps should be much better than 50c. With all that radiator and only your CPU and a single GPU in the loop, your water temp delta should be pretty dang low. Although my ambient temp is lower than yours, my water temp delta should be significantly higher than yours.

Today it is a lot cooler in my room. Ambient temp is 25c. the card idles at 28c and during full load the temp is 41c. The high ambient temp was the cause of my high gpu temp.

Are you running your card at stock clocks? That's still a bit high, but not much, for your loop with only your CPU/GPU in the loop and all that radiator. How slow are you running your fans? Could just be that, but I have about half as much radiator as you and I have my CPU and two 670s @1287mhz in my loop, and with the same ambient, our temps are about the same. Since my water delta isn't too low, I'd guess 8c at the lowest and most likely around 10c, my temps should be quite a bit worse than yours with all that radiator space. So either your fans are running much slower than mine (I'm running my AP-15s at full speed), your block needs to be remounted, maybe the TIM you are using is no good (I'm just running MX-4), or simply the EK block does not perform nearly as well as AC's (which I doubt is the case). I wouldn't say your temps are bad, I just would expect them to be significantly lower than mine.

My 670 runs at 1285 mhz. I have read a post on the evga forums of a user with the EK waterblock. He also has a temperature of +50c on his card. I think that the EK blocks are performing worse Alphacool.

You won't regret it! These blocks are top notch! Would love to hear some feedback on the heat killer blocks too. Looks like the EK block isn't performing as well as one would expect, which is quite surprising. Sort of glad to hear it though, I would love to see EK close up shop. They don't deserve a penny of what they earn, and I only see them getting worse. Now it seems they are only making an effort to reduce manufacturing costs, with no regard to aesthetics, and now I think even performance; in addition to how they handled the nickle flaking issues, which was just unforgivable...

I have the Heatkiller blocks installed.

Installation was a breeze, also with the backplate.

Ambient temps ~20

Iddle temps ~27

Load temps~40

This is with an EVGA Reference card, BIOS flashed to up the voltage abit (1213mV).

CORE: 1393

MEMORY: 3719

  • GPU with block




  • Before and After Heaven run

That's a SAWEET WB. What's even crazier is the temps! Do you have a IR thermometer gun? Maybe check the PCB temps on the top of the card too... I've ordered a fan for my 580 because my VRM's area is getting upto mid 60s low 70's when folding. I figure it needs some more PCB cooling even though the core tops out at 44C when folding.
