post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Well I figured its about time to post my first build thread. I have built a few rigs in the past year and this one was my first and now it needs to grow up.


After the Chimp I will be tearing down my 3930k rig to do maintence on the blocks and rads, Clean and Flush. And at this time I am going to get rid of my current case and upgrade to something a little more grown up.

Need some advice on paralell or series gpus.

With my current setup, I see 3'c (40'c and 43'c) difference between cards, thats just reading the sensors I installed on the blocks, and in HW the cards are 10'C different. (46'c and 56'c). Ambient is about 25'c

Would my system benefit more from a series setup? I am running paralell now......

That block all clogged up?
I can see some dirty/corroded spot there (maybe)

but hell... 10c is alot

not sure about the pump which you are using, but as far as I know the difference between parallel and serial is so minimum
its just the matter of more restriction in a serial loop

but if you feel you pump is strong enough than you have the option to go serial

though as far as I can remember B NEG made some review on the difference between serial/parallel, something about parallel being not fully having a good flow within the card block and leave some bubbles inside
he went for serial in conclusion

I myself using a parallel loop just because I love the look of the EK Bridge biggrin.gif

anyway looking forward for more updates

Yeah can't see diff

I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say you're referring to;


It seems to be the focal point of each image, and looks rather out of place being the only not-milled part of the copper. The water from the fins looks like it has nowhere to go, or is at the least very restricted?

On the other hand, I have never seen the inside of a Koolance 680 block, nor can I find a picture for comparison. So, who knows. I'm more than likely wrong.

EDIT: I guess I may have been right... is this what it's supposed to look like?

Yup, no cooling fins. I am at a lost for words.

I couldn't believe it at first......

I have a nice email to Koolance that went out lastnight......mad.gif
