This is the waterblock I am going for. Need suggestions for other parts. Will show case soon. tongue.gif
Also from looking at the case, it seems I may be able to mount the radiator up the very top of the case. Not sure where the reservoir goes.
The radiator looks like it can be the length of 2 of those 120 mm fans, but only the width of 1. Will that be enough? Or should I consider taking the radiator out of the case entirely and going for superman size? XD

I'm going to redo my loop on this once I get the new parts in. I setup two radiators and two pumps externally on mine and it has been running for almost 5 years now. I switched water here and there of course. I will consider putting everything inside myself but, I honestly might just keep everything external as it gives me easier access if something goes wrong. I took an old table and used the corner section of it to put everything on it so it fits right in my corner of my office next to my machine.

The main thing is keeping the tubing down to an absolute minimum.

Check that post again for pictures. It's on the previous page. I finished editing.

I love how I can look through the side case fan, which is a 140 mm fan modded onto the side of the case, can see the MSI GTX 980 Ti Lightning. With watercooling, won't enjoy that anymore. frown.gif

I am thinking of putting fans on the top and blow them down into the radiator which will be mounted downside. Hope that actually works....
I think I will need to replace the CPU heatsink with a predone watercooler, as that cooling tower will probably get into the way of that fat ass radiator I linked before. Unless you guys think it's not necessary to have one that massive. Honestly I think it'd be worth it if I can fit it. But here's the problem, I gotta buy it and try it, before I know if I screwed up or not. I may even need to see how the radiator is mounted, what screws, and if putting fans up the top will fit with those screws in place.
No matter what I do, I gotta take the tower cooler off and do something, cause the position it is in now, will probably interfere with the radiator.
I might be able to take that 140 mm fan with the 120 mm fitting slots, and put that up there with a 120 mm fan as the 2nd fan, that would improve airflow considerably.
I need advice on what predone watercooler would be appropriate for the Intel core i7 4790K.
Need advice on fittings, reservoir, pump, and fluid to use. Need assembly advice.

I like that radiator. I might end up getting two of them. I will have to do a 2016 radiator benchmark comparison search though first to make sure that is indeed the best performing radiator but, I'm thinking it probably is a good one from the description. I can set two of those up right next to each other almost, and save some tubing.

Like the case as well. thumb.gif

Edit:

I'll let someone else chime in on the water cooling setup questions. I had to add the second radiator to handle the heat my 2700k puts out at 5Ghz. I have a 4 fan taller radiator and a three fan one right next to each other. You can do calculations if you want I believe for watts.

Someone else please chime in on his questions though. I might do some quick adapters this time around etc. so it would be interesting to hear what people say.

I could put this in the top bay area, and then have it connect to the CPU. That would free up space.
If it fits that is.
Or I could ditch one of the fans on the thing, and go with just push, and put it on the top left of the case. It should still give adequate temperatures for the CPU, at 4.5 GHz.

Then I could connect the massive radiator up the top, put the fans on above that, and feed the cables through the hole on the right as the picture showed.
The huge white glowing fan will have to go.
I still need a place for the pump and reservoir. Need advice for other stuff.

Hello guys,

I´ve just followed around the last 5 pages of this thread and found out, that reducing the AUX voltage will help increasing Core Clock. I can agree. I was able to run 1548MHz w/o Afterburner Voltage modification.
Unfortunately, it´s not possible to implement voltage offset mode, due to voltage controller. So I refuse to permanently increase voltage to above 1,2V.
But with temporarily increased core voltage, I was able to push the core up to 1574MHz (1392+182). I got some artefacts in FireStrike but it went through.
ProjectCARS was not that modest, so the driver crashed after view seconds of GPU full load.

Where can I find truehighroller1´s BIOS? I just want to check all the tables in Maxwell BIOS Tweaker and try to understand the differences first. Additionally, I would like to know, whether there are maybe some secret HEX code modification, or if it´s "only" MBT work.
Would be great to know.

Additionally, I will receive a fullcover watercooler from liquidextasy.de within the next weeks.

Best regards, Stefan.

Can someone post a stock BIOS? I seem to have accidentally deleted mine O.O

Hello Guys...

After many Problems with my Lightning, i ve not buy a Lightning again. My choice is fallen on a Asus 980 Ti 20Th Anniversary Gold Edition.
No Problems with this Card.
Runs realy Nice biggrin.gif:D:D:thumb:thumb.gif

@ Oncoguitar: Here is the original one (standard, not LN2)

Light-ori.zip 152k .zip file

@ DJRamses: Could you describe your problems a little bit more in detail?
post #819 of 1097
yes..

She needs to many Volts on low Clocks.For 1490 Mhz she wants 1,43V. Without the Artmoney Hack , i cant clock over 1500Mhz.
The ASICS was 59,9. After 1530 Mhz massive instability. Cant hold clocks.She clocks up and down from 768 to 1533Mhz....
Under very cold water ( -2 - +1C° ) , the Problems was not solved.
I told the Problems MSI, and they say, send the Card back.

Hmm, imagine that. I was right... thumb.gif

I'm being silly. Glad I could help. Now you just need a tweaked BIOS....

MBT for most of it but there are a few things hidden that MBT does not see like the base power limit and the trigger point temp which I have access to via Svets BIOS tuner but, you might not be able to turn them up like I was able to...

Here's a lower voltage 1.237V one and a slightly, higher voltage one 1.287V. These are peaks at the tops of the voltage tables mind you. Both completely and I mean completely " even the stuff that's hidden from Maxwell BIOS Editor ", unlocked restriction wise. The only other thing that could make this better would be the AB extreme which we will never get I'm afraid.

You need to setup 2 profiles in AB. Set one up for your overclocked gaming with more volts / aux and memory tweaked to your cards liking and then a normal profile for everything else that will turn the voltages back to auto.

That way you can just load into windows normally but when you want to game you can load the profile so it sets higher voltages while gaming. Then when you're done gaming just load the normal profile you saved so volts go back to auto while keeping your fan profile to make your card last longer..

It's not as hard as it sounds.

These will clock themselves down like the normal BIOS.

Default clocks on both are 1405 / 3800 with boost still enabled and set to 1405 as well, stock. When you add anything on top of that the boost will clock up to what you add to it.

980Ti_Unlocked.zip 304k .zip file

These are my settings that I use for gaming right now because the temps went back up outside and the card didn't like the added heat. I was running at 1506 / 3900 while it was colder outside just fine. I will be getting a water block as well here shortly.

I turned off the voltage monitoring on mine at this point because I am done making sure it works and setting up my profiles at this point if you're curious.
