I've got my 4770K @ 1.4v and when doing the mandatory benches on my TI Classy I pumped it to 1.4v + PWM (who knows what the real volt was) and it peaked @ 48 degrees.

I know our cards are different TI but I just don't think it should be that high @ 1.2v.

Well I also have VRM water blocks as well, I just redid my loop the other day and the temps were about the same as they were when I first built my loop. The 780 Ti is the first thing that gets fed water from the pump.

I've read up on what's needed in customer loop, and it looks like mad-scientist labwork to me. Got any words of wisdom for me?

That's not true, NZXT makes a bracket for video cards that you can use Asetek style AIO's on your GPU. However the mosfets/memory isn't cooled by water as it would be with a full cover custom water block. They supply a fan on the bracket for that.

What I meant is that there's no AIO water cooler system that can be attached to a waterblock. Cause that's a million-dollar idea right there.

I think Swiftech's H220 can be expanded... http://www.overclockers.com/swiftech-h220-lcs-all-in-one-water-cooler-review but don't know about it's performance

believe it or not, yes. that's why it's so confusing to me. there's multiple different components and sooo many options for each one. For me, the hardest part to grasp is purifying the cooling liquid (make it less conductive) and getting rid of air bubbles and filling the pump by repeatedly turning the power on and off. and i'm also freaking about any potential leaks. sadsmiley.gif

you don't need to worry about purifying the water, you use ideally deionised water which isn't conductive and then you add a mixture (usually premixed) that contains a corrosion inhibitor and biocide. Or if this freaks you out you can just buy pre mixed solution and then all you have to do is pour it in.

As the fluid isn't conductive you test the loop for leaks with your machine off and if it leaks you mop it up and sort the leak

As for getting the air bubbles out you just run the pump really. Air will find it's way to the highest point in your loop so you can usually tilt it around to remove the bubbles and they'll work themselves out over time. That's one of the reasons you have a reservoir.

There are plenty of kits which contain everything you need, e.g. http://shop.xs-pc.com/xsp/XSPC-RayStorm-D5-EX240-WaterCooling-Kit_31714.html which will get you up and running

Its always a risk but i never had any problems with it, i have a corsair H110 for the CPU and 2 separate loops for my Titans!
I got 2 reservoirs 4,5Lt each, 2 aquarium pumps 1200Lt/H, 2 rads 360 (1 for each loop) plus a big 320mm fan pointing at the reservoirs for summer cooling and 2 EK XXL blocks with backplates!
For cooling fluid, i use car radiator liquid (50%) with distilled water!
Set a case outside my house with the reservoirs and the rads and drilled a couple of holes in the wall for the tubes and the electrical wires!




No rads at the pic time, added them 2 days later




All this for my debezeled tri-monitor 27" 120hz goodness!
