Do you have back plates? Black plates alleviate the weight of the water-block from the PCB.
(forgot you had the blocks on before hand. Looked back and you do have back plates...ignore the comment)

Looking over the TIM on the #3 card, it's probably a good thing I had to take it off. The application wasn't touching the block at all. More than likely, not a power issue at all, and the card was just shutting down to save itself.


The little speck of TIM was all that made it from the chip to the block. Perhaps I'll check the other blocks to be sure solid contact is being made. I had to use a different screw depth to accommodate the card/block/backplate and I'm guessing that was the culprit.

I'm certain you are right K. The cards will shutdown if the temperature suddenly accelerates. It is recommended that when you apply a block and tighten it, you then loosen it again to confirm contact between the TIM, PCB chips and the block. I think it's a good safe practice. In particular if you spend good money on cards and to avoid RMA run around.

It should work... thumb.gif

Update to all! Never fear, I have been hard at work, namely on custom cables, loop routing, reservoir mount adjusting, SATA sleeving, and much more. If I had to put a thumb on it, I'd say we're an estimated 85% finished. Pics to come in the next few days wink.gif

Never fear! Work and home life has been mighty busy the past couple of weeks but I've still been progressing when I can rolleyes.gif
As for now, we're almost done! I've been stressing each card individually to make sure those problems I had earlier are cured, and once that's done, I'm onto lighting. From there, pics of the finished build biggrin.gif
