Can't say that I'd recommend it, nor do I know of anyone else that would.

You could likely get away with it, if it is just to play Titanfall for a few hours - at stock wink.gif

Just missing this VRM section.

I want to just scrap everything, but all the time spent trying to make things work makes me wanna give it another go. I guess it all depends if get new replacement blocks from EK. Were gonna find out how well their customer support really is.

I bought 3mm replacement pads, and once fitted they seem to be just a little too bulky, or perhaps they're just not as soft and forgiving as the ones that are fitted from the factory.

That said, try stacking pads until a height of 2.5mm over that section, then fit the block and check for contact. Then you can add or subtract from there.

Have you tried 1.3v with LLC enabled? Not using the LLC mod.

As long as you keep those VRMs cool with volts above 1.3v you should be good. EK blocks FTW.

Got home and carefully inspected and disassembled my gpu blocks. Both were leaking. The first card was lucky not to get any water, the second one, well RIP.

Will try and RMA both blocks and get full replacements. Will probably end up going back to air. And selling all this water cooling gear. This was fun, but just too much bs.

I want to play TitanFall so bad, I do not have time for this. I can't even run my gpu air cooled cause I'm missing thermal pads.

Will stacking thermal pads work?

Both blocks were leaking! eek.gif Something was definitely wrong with the install on those blocks.

I would put the stock thicker thermal pads on the VRMs and the couple taken off the VRAM place your stacked thinner pads. VRMs get much hotter.

There isn't much to it. Just the base plate, O ring and acrylic top. Put everything in place and tighten up. I even did the whole cylinder head tightening method. I leak tested prior to installing and after installation for another 24 hours. These blocks were installed late December. I don't know what I could have done wrong. To me it seems like a bad I rings. Maybe they are a 1 time use.

I found a bit of the thermal pad to cover the VRM section.

Bitcoin miners are buying up all the stock so yes there is limlited availability so they jack the price up as they know everyone is going to pay up anyway

O-rings can be used multiple times, unless they are dried out or cracking. Just so weird it was both blocks.

Did you get the Titan on air for some Titanfall action?

I know the O-rings that came out of my nickel blocks were all sorts of compromised. They were extra stringy, stretched out, & covered in buildup.

Prices are by far the highest in the states though. We now rival normal Australian prices! @least last time I NewEgg wanted 800-900$ for 290X, while they were still 500-600$ in the EU.

I'm just glad I have an overabundance of quality PSUs these days.
