Update 108 "Mounting Titan waterblocks"
Today had to do more then working on my build.
I promised my wife to take her to a shop to look for a new kitchen. Making a drawing and looking for al the things (whe\she) wants in it took a few hours. But final job don drawing ready. Wife pleased (for now) and me back to the build.
Because it was late i thought let put the waterblocks on the cards.
I always look on youtube for material i can use. and i found the installation film from overclock3d.net from tinytomlogan how to mount the XSPC waterblock on the Titan.
I first clean up the dishes from the table. "my wife was thinking wats going on here". I just needed the workspace oke!
So al the stuf on the table. Do i have it all "no where is my mx4" grrrrrr. Always when i need something i cant find it.
After 20 minutes searching found it. Dont no if i'm going o use it but it has to be on the table.
Cards out the package,
Waterblock "see the difference!!!! yes good then whe can go on then "time is money"
installation manual on the table. remove the 20 scews, then pull the card appart. "NO WONT GO LOOS".
After reading and counting the screws i found two screws who are not in the manual.
I'm going to sent them a e-mail for it. So keep in mind 22 screws.
These 2 has to go out also if you dont want to brake the card in two if you pull the top off.
When i look at it i wunder "why does this piece have to cost almost 878 an 996 euro".
Perhaps i dont wonder any more if these cards running.
Cleand the card, termal pads\ paste on waterblock on it, turn the cards around without moving the termal pads.
Stil going good "i think".
Lucky me i read both manuals "waterblock and backplate" until step ten and then the red washers on the holes befor i can put the long screws in.
After tiden the screws "handtide" its time for a few pictures.
He why do i have so many termalpads left !!!, After reading the manual again i found out why "grrrrrrrr" forgot the termalpads from the backplate. After a few minutes the pads where on the backplate and this job finished.
Just one more card.
Both cards don. Notice a difference "No you cant win a price".
Cards and plates are the same just the text is different. did not notice it until now.
Original screws in the card and all wrabt up in foil for storrage.
I have more to talk about. i rma the first card because the serialnr dont match the box. Wel all the cards dont match the boxes. How stu... is that. I wunder why and why i did not stick to EVGA. I have 3x 9800 GX2, 3x GTX 580, 2x 450, 1x 768.
Dont get me wrong the Titans are brand new. But the feelling is not. The al came from different shops.
So thats al folks for today.
