And i have no idea what 1.5 GPM means.

1.5 GPM is Gallons per minute, which is about 5.6 liters per minute.
1 GPM should still work, less cooling obviously however.
0.5 GPM will make the water flow wrong inside the radiator due to not enough water being pushed there.

I'm not sure what you mean by 30-40L either lol My pump is rated at 600l/h and after reading tests, it should run fine even with triple 360 rads and few blocks in the loop.

Hi, I have a 290X version of this block in a custom loop (duh!) is there anyway you can get 90° adapters so I could run the GPU in parallel with the CPU like you can with EK GPU blocks?
post #103 of 352
Just buy any 90 degree connector from the store? You do realize they are universal and will fit on any blocks?

Ha ha... i mean 30-40L/h wink.gif I am from german, we do not work with gallons, only metric system wink.gif 600L/h if the pumps i running alone without a loop. You will never have 600L/h in your loop wink.gif

@KaffieneKing
Alphacool do not support a parallel run with GPUs because you can get a lot of problems with that. Maybe it looks better but in the worst case one of your GPUs don`t get cool water. So you have to take always an eye on your temps.
Sure, there are a lot of system wich works fine, but we have also a lot of customers wich got in trubble with that.

I already have 90° fittings on my GPU

Okay thank you for the swift reply, a great shame as it would look a lot better in my system!

No i didn't...Only Kelvin S36 and that's it. Room temps are 24-28C and after I screw all screws to end (it was not before) Im hitting 51 on GPU and 53 on CPU while playing Mad Max

Hey all.

Received my 970 M07 block for my ASUS 970 Turbo card. If your clued up, the M07 is for the Asus Mini OC but they both share the same board.

Currently got my build running on air for testing


and plan to mate this

with this, keeping the white fan shroud one and fan for cooling


and believe i need to hack 10mm x 10mm on the left hanf corners and lost likely the top right corner, or cheat and drill a hole through that side.
Should allow the sink to mount with the card, then the shroud over the top, then the backplate


worst case, the depth of the heatsink doesnt fit within the shroud and worst worst case, i just use the waterblock and plate without the sink.
guessing i'll also need to hack the area by the 4 pin or could link up the fan via cable to the Grid+ for control.

Awesome stuff man, I have the same card and I'm getting my GPX M07 today. I thought about doing exactly what you are planning, but I don't really have a lot of room in my case so I need all the space I can get.

Since you have two 970s, Alphacool makes an 80mm fan mount for dual cards:

I'd really like to see if it fits. Good luck and be sure to keep posting pics here!

Got my GPX M07 in the mail today and ran into a problem. There is one capacitor that seems to be right in the way and the water block will not sit flat. I have an Asus Turbo 970 btw. This isn't Alphacool's fault, the Turbo 970 technically isn't supported, the Asus Direct CUII mini 970 is and they both use the same pcb.



It looks to be a pretty easy fix (assuming someone has access to a drill). My little brother has a little tabletop mill that I'll be using to drill the hole. Here is where it appears to be hitting:



I'll upload some pics once I've drilled the hole and installed it.

Could you do me a massive favour ?

Does the heatsink squeeze into the shroud casing ?

If it doesnt ill have to change tactics and go with EK
