I was just about to email him and ask for his assistance :o

 

I know i'm no Hobbit, but maybe he'd make a 1 time exception.... =\

Lol, i just noticed that. I'm pretty sure my FAIL was not using a credit card to separate em after heating. 

I already bought the EK Monarch Modules, 2 x4 Ram Blocks, & 2 Clean CSQ Plexi Tops. Too late to turn back now =)

 

I've been toying wth the idea of just tapping the threads into the Trident-X Heatspreaders after removing the top fin. The Monarch's have a flatter top surface though, which will probly help with cooling.

 

I've asked around a little bit, and it seems people that use the credit card method to split the heatsinks are always successful.

You don't want to use an universal block?

I'd want nothing less than a full cover block on my GPU biggrin.gif

I definitely concur Will =)

 


 

I just broke my x3 back down. One of the screws that came with my EK Heatsinks was stripped on the inside of the cap. I had to use pliers to unscrew it from the heatsink, which DESTROYED my pretty paintjob :sad-smile. Definitely gonna have to sand and repaint. 

 

My 2nd pump had a wire corroded, which i suspected because it was acting funny, and was the main reason i broke it down. The first leak i had was out of the 2nd pump in the setup, coming out of the wire hole and vents. I think i'm gonna resolder all 3 of the pumps, i don't like how much bare wire is left after the solder joints.

 

I'd like to break down the impeller from the pcb to inspect for damage from any of the pumps running dry, but i don't know how to safely remove the impeller/rotor

 

Also, i always figured the 35x was the same as the DDC 3.2 PWM. But the PCB's say 3.1 PWM. Weird....

true, a fcb is recommended. I use a universal block on my hd6870 in the haf and it gets so hot, so quickly. So I'm gonna replace it.
But I'm not looking in the stores, I'm looking at EK first to see which one has a fcb, lol.

Think I may sell this Windforce and get a reference 7950 or just upgrade to a better reference card.

Lol, yeah the thoughts definitely crossed my mind once or twice. Alot of it's honestly just learning curve though. The RAM breaking, even though it seems unlucky, is really just me being a n00b. 1st-timer mistake. Won't happen again :p

 

The pumps seem fine from what i can tell. The wire being corroded is an easy fix. The PCB's seem fine. I'll take a pic at some point when i solder the wires how i want em, but the 35x's have a decent sized tail of uninsulated wire where most people would put heatshrink. I think that's why the 2nd pump was shorting out. 

 

Also in other news. Freckles convinced me to take Lost for another spin on Netflix :o

280x's can be had pretty cheap if you're trying to stay on the red team =)

Here you can see what i was talking about with the wiring on the 35x's. 

 

 

 

All 3 of em have that same amount of excess bare wire where most people would put heatshrink. These pics are from the 2nd pump that was shorting out. Basically, the DC Power Brick i was using to leaktest, after the pump leaked i couldn't plug it in to the power brick without the LED in the power brick going out. So i know it was some sort of short. I'm hoping it's that corroding on the green wires contacts, because that would be an easy fix. I didn't notice that black stuff on the pcb near the ground wire til i just cropped that pic

sadsmiley.gif so you're still set on using 3 pumps?

Also, just curious, have you set a cost ceiling or are you just like the US, raise it in eternity? jk biggrin.gif

A good project is never done! Although being usable would be nice. tongue.gif

Yeah definitely still planning on using the 35x3. Overkill in a tiny box has been the theme for this build for a while now. 35x3 = OVERKILL :D

 

I don't plan on cranking em for normal use. That's why i have the flowmeter with the aquaero 6, plus i'm thinking about a 2nd flowmeter. I just wanna be able to crank em during leaktesting, so i know i don't have to worry about leaks during normal use, if that makes sense.

 

If i had ever set a budget for this build, it would've been quadrupled by now =\

 

I think i'm almost there though. I don't even wanna add up how much i've spent so far. But i'm thinking with the new ram kit, 3rd 290x + Block & Backplate, 2nd SSD, Plus the fittings and tubing for the rest of my loop, maybe another 1500. I have all the building materials and tools i'll need. Hopefully all 3 of these pumps are still useable. I hope i don't need to buy another DDC.

 

Edit: Forgot about monitors, keyboard, mouse, etc.... Maybe closer to 2k more =\
