Watercool (Brand) Dual-Link I/O Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm having a really hard time finding information on this dual GPU bridge online, I'd really appreciate some help.
Did I do my installation wrong? From what I read this bridge is optimized for parallel links but can also be setup for serial?
The issue I'm running into is the top card, (flow runs from top to bottom) runs cool whereas the bottom card runs 20C hotter. Unusable in a 100% processing situation. We're talking 65C vs. 85+C in stress testing...

Pictures are worth 1000 words



The cards are 2x 7970s, res is an XSPC Dual Bay, pump MCP-655 and rad is Hardware Labs GTX Black Ice Xtreme 240mm
Thanks guys I REALLY appreciate any help here thumb.gif

You need to move one of the ports over, doesn't matter top or bottom. In other words water must come in one port, say the top right, it needs to exit the bottom left. They cannot both be on the same side. That will just allow the water to escape past your bottom block.

THANK YOU. Will post back with temps!
UPDATE: sub 65C each under 1200MHz overclock each in stress tests biggrin.gif
Only 240mm of rad space this GTX Black Ice is killer
