Cleaning time; would like to upgrade.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My set up is shown here here. That is 2 GTX480 and the CPU on the same loop. Recently I've started to run at 100C on one of the GPUs under gaming load, even with the 2nd one disabled. I figured it is time to do some cleaning and also considering some upgrades. I have an extra reservoir already, so was thinking on maybe getting a pump and single fan rad for CPU only loop. Any other suggestions are welcome; anything wherever or not to actually have a 2nd loop, the orientation of the flow, if I should stick with the same tube diameter,etc. Let me know if I can provide any other info. Thanks.

I can see myself getting at least another year out of the two 480s. Any reason you are suggesting to get rid of them?

That is just my opinion. How I look at it if I am going to invest in upgrading the a wc loop. I would like to have some what up to date hardware first before spending it on wc gear.
Again this is just my opinion.

first priority is to get a data vac and blow the dust out of your case. second, would get extra rad (240mm?) and sli bridge for your gpus.

I'm not familiar with SLI bridges. The 2 blocks on cards are not identical, would I still be able to find one that fit?

100°c on your GPU?????? blinksmiley.gif
What's your CPU like?
If they have completely different temps I'd advice you to take that waterblock off and clean it really really well and try again.

Also I don't really see the point in making 2 seperate loops for your CPU and GPU.
Although a lot of people believe that having a radiator before your block gives you better temps that is rarely the case.
Water moves so fast through your loop that it won't matter so I also don't see why you'd make 2 seperate loops if you can just make 1 big loop =/

CPU actually maxes out at 75C. Per your suggestion, I'll stick with 1 loop for now and see how it behaves for a bit. The cause of the clog/build up could be due to some plastic that I see peeling away from the inside of the tubes. Not sure if it is a know issue with Feser active UV tubing or limited to my system. After cleaning I'll probably switch to clear Tygon tubing, and then, depending on the outcome will consider replacing 480s with something in the 700 line.
