Will the waterblock be enough?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am going to be taking apart my W/C loop here soon to test for a computer case short and see if that is causing issues on my PCI-E lane and not allowing my second TITAN to be detected..

My question is - do I ABSOLUTELY have to put the stock heatsink back on or do you guys think the waterblock itself will be enough to keep my gpu from being destroy? Obviously I am not going to play any games or anything - the only thing I would do is hook everything up and go into the bios to see if the second gpu is detected or not.

Thanks for your help!

No way. The water block on its own is able to dissipate close to 0 watts. The heat-sinks have very large surface area (many fins)exposed to air. The waterblock just transfers the heat through a small plate to the water in the chamber which in your case is empty.

Yep I'd definitely say you'll need some sort of cooler on there. Such are the hassles of a watercooled system - just know things like this are the safe option and you'll thank yourself in the long run smile.gif
