why you having doubts about your gpu block?

I actually have an EK bay reservoir stashed away, but my case is obviously too small for that. Will upgrade to a Phanteks case sometime in the future... But right now I doubt I'd actually need a reservoir anyway.

The block on the graphics card is actually doing a terrible job because the water block only cools the GPU. VRM and memory is air cooled by a separate heat sink. 55C at max load just isn't good enough in my opinion when a Fury Nano with an EK water block on it can reach as low as 36C. That's a huge difference. Not that it's causing me problems of course, I just feel the Poseidon is a bit of a silly product considering the fans don't even turn off when water cooled. ASUS needs to do this better since the fans are actually rather audible even at idle. I used EVGA PrecisionX to force the fans at 28% speed which is the minimum.

No sir going to remove the QDC, reason I am doing this is I moved my Predator to the front of my Define S case and switched the fans to push and the hoses are a little too long so I figure a good time to do this and go ahead and mess with it.

What tubing did you go with? I have read about some types of tubing fitting very snuggly with certain fittings.

Sorry, that's not what mine sounds. It's hard to describe. It's like when car's fan belt makes this screeching sound at times. Thank god it is not as loud and not constant, just oscillating in a cycle. When the pump spins faster, the noise gets louder.

Anyone from EK could help me. My replacement was suppose to be shipped out last week. Got no update and no tracking number. It's getting close to two weeks without word from EK RMA. I tried contact them, no one ever responds back. Is their someone I could E-Mail that will respond and update me on status of my RMA?

I know EK is busy with all recalls, I would just like a simple update regarding my RMA.

Anyone knows if EK or whoever has a QDC (Quick Disconnect ) compression fittings for Hardline (Rigid) Tubing?
