Yeah, I kinda figured it out. However, the two compression fittings fit where the quick disconnect thingies were right? Do I need some glue or w.e to stick the tubing into the fittings? Also when the fittings fit onto the msi sea hawk gpu, The other side is still open, so I need a plug for that end right?

I don't know how well they don't or do overclock I simply though saying that there is no reason to buy that msi card a little harsh. There's something to be said for the convent all in one package card and block assembled. There's the potential throttling as well as the silence of water cooling.

Maybe my point wasn't clear... smile.gif
The MSI is a great card, but not suitable for a system with an EK Predator. At least not the primary idea of the Predator.
The price you pay for the card will be higher than getting a cheap 1080 with a prefilled EK block made for the Predator.
The hassle with getting the MSI card, adding the fittings and QDCs and filling up the system with more coolant (with a very small reservoir) can't be less trouble than mounting an EK block wink.gif

The additional power phases are currently not giving you any advantage. All 1080 OC the same: 2.0-2.1GHz.

I can agree with that. Mostly cuz of the qdc on the 360. Might have been better had he just had a 240 like me. Little more reasonable to get something like the msi. As convenient as the qdc are I'm not a fan of them aesthetically.

Try witcher 3 for GPU temps. Make sure your power limit is maxed. thumb.gif
