YES IT IS!

I drained my loop and redid the thermal paste a couple days after and forgot to edit that post.
Now the 2nd gpu is about same as 1st GPU, although the thermal paste looked fine when I removed the block, dunno what the problem was but reapplying thermal paste made it WAYYYYYY better. thumb.gif

I don't think (possibly) badly applied thermal compound would make
THAT much of a temp difference.
My bet is the actual re-seating of the block + loop draining is what fixed it.

How's the PC treating ya these days ?

Yeah must have been the re-seat cause I drained it twice and refilled,even that didn't fix it until I decided to take it apart.
But since that's been solved it's been running the same as before just with better temps thumb.gif


Been itch'n to build another system but I am going to be waiting a looooong time. Waiting for Haswell-E and the GTX 800 series, even so I might even skip these because if I upgrade it'll be for 4k res since i'm running great on 1440p .
