Warm Aussie days atm and the witcher 3 and others are pushing low to mid 80s Celsius on the GPU which is not dangerous but could be lower.

i live in malaysia so we have comparably similar temperatures when you're in summer. i lived in qld for abit. only difference is that its a bit more humid here. i have a 6600k @ 4.6 and a 980ti running a custom bios of 1506mhz (not entirely sure what you mean by high). both are kept fairly cool. max gpu temps i've gotten are 50-53C and cpu can get to around 65-68C. my room ambient on a particularly hot day can be around 32-33C and thats when i hit the higher side of the temps i mentioned. i have it as front intake in my evolv atx

i cannot recommend this AIO any more. fairly easy to setup and does a great job at cooling. hope that helps you out

I might use one of these in my next build for charity.

Gotta say, Very happy with EK and their customer service! My fan header for my predator 360 went out on me a few days ago and I just received my new one. Extremely fast shipping. And they even sent me a bunch of new rivets and new zip ties. I'm impressed. Good job EK👍🏼👌🏼

A new free GPU block would have been nice though tongue.gif

so i returned my new unit to Microcenter (due to the thumb screws not being able to thread into the backplate) and grabbed the only other 240 they had. Same problem! Its not me because there were 3 employess trying to get the screws to thread in and nothing! Luckily for me, the 360 has the same backplate. So they grabbed one from a 360 box and PRESTO!! the screws threaded in nice and smooth. Just a heads up to EK, some backplate's threads are off just enough to not be able to screw in the correct screws. Now I FINALLY have my 240 purring like a kitten in my rig thumb.gif

Okay, what in the hell?! :mad:

The motherboard is reading ~380 RPMs and refuses to go full speed. 

It was working for a short time after installing the new Predator 240 I received that replaced another broken unit.

Is the fan hub busted? It's showing a red light and there is power but refuses to go full speed.

I've tried different connectors on the motherboard.

 

It took weeks to finally get a replacement and I'd hate to go through that again.

Is it possible to replace the top of the pump with aftermarket ones?

This is interesting...

I disconnected the pump from the splitter hub and connected it to the motherboard directly.

I can now control the fan speed from the splitter hub.

The pump speed control works separately. 

 

I think this will wind up being a better solution.

I'll have the pump running at full speed and the fans at a temp variable speed.
