Next step will be the Alphacool Eiswolf GPX-Pro cooler wink.gif

- better performance
- backplate is in touch with the cooler on the GPU side
- Pump included wink.gif

As Solo and AIO. As AIO you can connect the Eiswolf easy with the Eisbaer to get a great big water cooling loop.

Yes, first card is a little bit warmer.

Hello,
I can read in the few tests available that this block is very restrictive.
I am interested in the 390 M01 model for my 390X TriX and I like to know if a D5 vario in position 3 will be sufficient, knowing that my loop is normally composed of a CPU WB NexXxoS XP3 , a rad NexXxoS 240 xt45 and a Phobya Xtreme 200 known to not be restrictive.

Thanks

The D5 is so quiet even at 100% i wouldnt worry. I do know that at a quite low rpm it will def affect temps. I have mine set to around 3500rpm and its perfect and totally inaudible over fan noise.

ok, so a D5 pump around 3000-3500 rpm (position 3 of the vario version is 3300rpm) perform well enough despite the restrictive WB.

Thanks

Oui ca marche SUPER bien.

On the other hand, too low of a speed and its awful. I forgot to change pump speed after resetting my BIOS and my gpu went to 57°C after fixing it i dropped 10°C on the GPU. Its a bit hot in southern France so my temps are a bit higher then an ambien of low/mid 20s.

I got around installing 390 M04 on Gigabyte 390X G1 Gaming at last - however, one of the screws for the core did not catch the thread (all the rest went in fine). I could see it touching the right spot, it went through the PCB just fine but just did not catch the thread it was supposed to go into. I installed the block using three screws for the core (as I have used core only blocks in the past even with just two screws diagonally I figured it should OK although not ideal).

I have some other (software issues related to drivers, apparently) problems as well at the moment but without AMD drivers GPU-z manages to claim that the PCB temp is about 50C and core temp is about 80C (it also claims the card is running at 100% without drivers installed). As far as I can tell the core temp is approx 10C higher than "normal" for this block under full load for 390X ? Rest of the loop is 280mm rad with 1000rmp fans in push-pull and 2x DC-LT pumps with plexi tops. The GFX card is only cooled component in that loop. There is still some air in the system as well I guess because when I tilt the chassis I can hear minor amount of bubbles rattling around.

You might need more pump speed. There is NO way you should be getting 80°C on that card even with only a 280mm rad. For comparison mine with an ambient of 21°C hits like 41°C with a 360mm and a 240mm rad.
