90% of the stories are from teenagers that did something to cause a leak, twisted the lines, etc etc. The units are sealed very well and DON'T just leak. That is a reason why there are millions of them out there. And just like with any product failures happen.


I continued on the sarcasm to see if you had anything of value to add to the conversation, instead of the usual 'oh its been done before, who cares' I didn't expect much and that's exactly what I got. So in conclusion you are right about everything including, pat yourself on the back rolleyes.gif


I guess there was a huge reason Corsair had a recall?
You should probably not condescend people with high caliber and reputation on this forum who have had first hand experience with coolers failing and call them teenagers. It's really rude.

You should fill out your profile and sig rig, you have been registered on this forum for a long time, would be nice to see you around and actually provide something to this community thumb.gif

Do not generalize all AIO and claim it's a fact when you lack this actual information. Referring others to search google is probably how you became misinformed in the first place.

If there is anything else I can guide you with please send me a PM, your conversations have not been constructive to this thread and are fore the sole purpose of insulting me as you've stated. Please re-consider using the word fact when you are posting your opinions, you are going to confuse other users.

Dude, what are you smoking? Distilled water with additives is what is used, that is a FACT - why you and another members are saying that its otherwise just baffles me. Please, would you kindly go ahead and show PROOF that its NOT what is used, and I will then value your opinion. My sig is my sig, I have multiple systems, and work with countless servers - I'm not here to brag.

Also, I'm not misinformed at all, and please leave your guidance for others that are happy to just accept it. Also my original comment wasn't even in response to you then you added your sarcasm, now you claim I'm not putting anything constructive in here.

Anyways, I'm done here. I learned a long time ago to not argue with trolls.

thanks very much..

Aside from the price tag, which was to be expected, its a great piece of engineering. Especially considering, it has no frame pacing issues at all. Granted I wish they used a thicker rad.

It's a halo product but look at how many boutique brands already announced systems with it. It will sell out, no doubt about it. The whole point of this is exclusivity.

nono definitely not disappointed, its a very good single card, just not excited anymore for whatever reason, I guess I just expected it to turn out this good regardless

this talk about closed-loop coolers though, yea its just standard distilled and biocide, maby a little lube so the shaft doesn't grind too much (they are cheap and basic pumps regardless), and its completely possible to get a bad batch and have it asplode on you, just a very very low chance, you're probably more likely to have a custom loop leak on you then one of those.

just recently I drained my thermaltake water2.0 pro, it had a very strong biocide mix that you could smell from outside the room, but this generally means it will last years before anything can possibly grow, by then the pump would have likely failed and/or it would have been replaced anyway, I re-filled mine with silver water and distilled water (silver water is distilled been electrolyzed with silver rods, but is very heavy by itself), for the two years Ive had it its worked quite well, reason I drained it is due to it having a low amount of fluid then it should have, possibly due to some evaporation out the tubes over the years and heat it has had to deal with.

hoses wise, these rubber ones are virtually impossible to get off, they're glued and even if you overheat the loop the hoses just expand to compensate for the increase in size, only real risk of it exploding is if you boiled it, which your motherboard would shut off if you tried, in my case to do the drain involved removing 18 screws off the copper block, there's also a plastic riser block that has another 18 screws I think it was, lets just say they have a very excessive amount of screws really on this part and the pump itself is a sealed shaft barrel, when mounted this puts further reinforcement onto the gaskets so there's literally no chance of a leak occurring here, so you can only really make them leak if you pull the hoses really hard or puncture the radiator.

those plastic hoses however I'm not too sure of, they possibly break a lot easier then the rubber ones.

Yeah, the lightning really blows the pants off the Matrix when comparing provided coolers. ASUS never fixed the issue from the DC2, where they're using the GK104 heat pipe design. Sure most people who buy a matrix are going to water cool it, if not use LN2, but it's the premise of buying a Flagship item that has a design flaw.

1150 is pretty good for stock settings, what kind of voltage to they come with out of the box?
With an asic of 75.8%, I'm drawing 1.22v under 3d load with DMM. At 1220 and +135mv, it's topping out at 1.29v. I'll continue to push a little further on air since temps seem pretty good, but will most likely stop at 1250 until I get it under water. This is all on stock bios. I haven't had time to play with the secondary "LN2" bios yet.

Very nice!

Never probed a card with DMM, where do I measure from? I want to check mine

Good question. I'm not sure on the reference cards. Hwbot or Kingpin Cooling forum should have details. Believe it involves manually probing specific points on pcb. Nice thing about Lightning, DCII, and Matrix, they have specified points for taking a measurement.

Anyone have tips on the lines/picture distortion issues I have seen? I think I have literally the worst 290x ever made. Running +200 mv in AB I can finally get 1200+, however after about 10 minutes the entire picture gets distorted into lines. Temps are all fine and in check. This is a sapphire 290x with elpida memory on PT1 bios. For sure, my card is the absolute worst clocker for memory as anything over 1350, regardless of bios/drivers/setup/voltage results in a black screen. Makes me sick... And all this on water.

So I was up till 3AM last night..




40c max on the GPU @ stock. 70c for VRM 1's.. That's waiting till next time i drain the loop.

Also; What drivers are you guys doing? 13.12's don't let me overvolt.
