For AIO, definitely go Kraken G10 (Microcenter has best deal, I think). You can re-use all of the MSI midplates to passively cool the memory chips and the VRMs. And you don't have to use a shim between the die and the cold plate.

Edit: Aftermarket fans with higher CFM are encouraged to improve the VRM cooling and reduce noise. The Blade Master 92mm fan is a recommended replacement.

Seems like the Corsair H90 is very popular as well?

The H90 uses a 140mm radiator, versus 120mm on both the H55 and H75, so just make sure you have the room. It's probably not as popular, due to its cooling only being marginally better (a few C's) and its size requirements doesn't fit as many cases. If you want a signifcant improvement in temps, go with a compatible double-radiator AIO.

Any 980 Ti Poseidon owners here? I'd like to know how it performs on air at 60% or below fans? Idle and load please.

I've definitely read some of the other stuff online about PLX issues with the board, but I haven't found anything to help resolve the issue on my setup. Most of the cases I have heard of online seem to have been ironed out. So far, I've had no luck. I already RMA'd the board once - I may have to try to get ASRock to replace the board with a different motherboard if they agree (again, they are currently insisting that they got a similar system to work and that I should check the GPUs and CPU in a different system...), just not looking forward to once again being out of a working system for a couple weeks while it gets sorted out.

BTW, I was running GTX 970's in SLI on the previous board in slots 1 and 5 no problem before I RMA'd it after getting the 980 Ti's because it no longer worked. I figured at the time that the PLX chip somehow died after installing the 980 Ti's, but like I said, the new board still doesn't work, though for completely different reasons (slot 5 on the first board wasn't even properly detecting the card at all times).
I am going to replace the motherboard as a last resort (either by asking ASRock to do it, or by simply buying a new one), however, ASRock is claiming they were able to get 2 980 Ti's to work in SLI just fine with the same motherboard and CPU (again, they were using EVGA SC+ 980 Ti's instead of reference like mine, which is why I decided to see if flashing my cards would fix the issue).

Still scratching my head as to what it could be....


just connect the os and the hdd to sata 1 ports which is near the mobo power connector , dont connect any thing else , better still if you can take out the mobo from the casing and place it out side to check.

1.check the molex connector that gives extra juice to the mobo is it properly seated .

2.did you flash to the latest bios ..if so did u choose default settings.

3.is the os a new one or being carry forwarded form a old build.

4.from what it seems the gpus are ok might be some thing going on with the mobo ...if my removing every sata hdd etc and just hooking the os and 1 hdd the problem does not go away do a fresh os install with clean drivers and check again .

if the problem comes back i would recommend u return the mobo and get 1 from asus or evga .

So I've noticed something on my 980 Ti Hybrid.

When I'm running completely stock BIOS with no OC at all, the card and memory will both downclock when idle, all the way down to like 135/200MHz. Which is great for power consumption.

However, the instant I apply any amount of OC, the card refuses to downlock below the original base clock. So if I add +100 MHz so my base clock is 1240MHz, the card will not drop below 1140MHz when idle. Furthermore, the memory will run at full speed all the time.

I tried a couple different custom BIOS and the same issue. The card will simply not downclock below the original, non-OC base clock for that BIOS. And memory always runs at full speed.

I tried with my monitor at both 60Hz and 100Hz, no difference. I'd read about running high refresh rates that can prevent the card from downclocking, but that doesn't seem to be the issue here.

Is there something I'm missing on how to get the card to downclock properly?

No room in my case really for a double radiator AIO...I already have the Kraken x61 up top and 3 intake fans up front...H90 seems to be a good choice..but I don't even know if I will go ahead and change the stock cooling...not "really" needed.

I own the MSI GTX 980Ti. This is powered by 2x 8Pins from the PSU.

Now, my question is, is there any difference between using 2x seperate PCI-E cables for each 8Pin slot compared to using 1x PCI-E cable, which is split to 2x 8Pins on the end?

Am I likely to get lower power draw using a split cable, rather than 2 direct cables from the PSU?

My PSU specifically says for high end GPUs to use 1 PCIe connector per cable. In other words, not to use 1 cable with 2 connectors on it.
