I seem to have lost all temperature sensors for my 290X after installing the EK Block. I was hoping to get some load temps for you guys before I post pictures.

Still waiting on my block... Geez this is taking painfully long.

Oh and NCIX says the pump I ordered on the 11th (which they said was in stock when I ordered when it really wasn't, but that it'd be re-stocked on the 19th) won't ship out until Jan 15th at the earliest....

Heatkiller 3.0 - i did take it apart to clean it because i bought it from a buddy and it needed cleaning. I think my issue was one of the barbs connected to the block leaked at the o-ring. I am pretty sure it's an error on my part i didn't tighten it enough and maybe pressure as mentioned by others. however examining my GPU EK blocks have me worried uneven gap i noticed on two of them. Also, i'm happy to report all my video cards are fine!!!! WOOT!!

I am quick benching them on stock coolers. The "Target GPU tempature" slider bar defaulted to 95C at stock settings. When i move it to say 65C i am getting a huge decrease in performance. Does this setting intentionally throttle the GPU to keep temps low?

Noob question, This is the first time I've seen "Aux voltage" on any OCing tool, what does this exactly do and what does it affect? it does help me get stable clocks but I just wanna learn more about it. Sapphire TrixX don't have it tho.

I don't think anyone knows for sure, although I've seen reports that it is PLL voltage.

I have my aux voltage set to +13 and it allows me to run more memory oc. I'm not saying they are directly related, but without it I can't get over 1500 at all and some games will artifact at 1500, but with it I can go as high as 1600 no issues. thumb.gif
