this is my first ever watercooling setup and my system is ga-z68x-ud3h-b3, 3770k, 8GB crucial ballistix tracer ram ddr3, corsair tx650m, vapor-x 7950, xspc raystorm, koolance gpu-220, swiftech mcp655-b. so i've had the cpu watercooled for about a week while i waited on the copper shim to come in. so it came in today i was super excited to finally do my gpu! so super carefully pulled off stock heatsink. put on all my little ram heatsinks, put on my block w/ shim(TIM in between die/shim and shim/block) get it all put back together...nothing. i tried using vga instead of hdmi. nope. so i put the hdmi to the mobo. works fine. damn! i killed my card. thought maybe i cracked the die, so i pulled it out of the system to check...nope. so i put the stock hsf back on cause it still under warrenty and i was gonna send it back. put it back in my reg just to check and it came right on. what the hel? why won't it work w/ the water block on but works fine with the stock one? am i missing something? did i do something wrong? any suggestions cause i'd really like to put it underwater.
