Water not circulating through GPU block - Page 2

you want to use the red ports... as in and out smile.gif the black ports are to be capped off smile.gif you can use the qdc's as well.. for if you have to remove the gpu

I don't wanna be an a-hole about this, but this is misinformation. As long as the OP is using one side as IN and the other as OUT, it doesn't matter if the tubing is connected at the top or bottom. What matters is one tube is to the left and one tube is to the right.

What OP wants to avoid is having both tubes connecting to one side only, which is typically meant for multi-GPU parallel setups.

Make sure you let the loop run so that all the air bubbles bleed out. As they bleed out, your water levels will lower, so you want to fill in more water/coolant in order to slowly diminish all the air from the loop.

You may need another pump. By adding a GPU block and a rad, you basically doubled the resistance.

The pump is strong enough to handle several blocks and rads. Saying double the resistance when the pump pressure is plenty high is misleading. Even if adding a second block/rad "doubles" the pressure loss, the flow shouldn't drop enough to make any significant temperature difference.

So you're up and running now?

I left it running for a few hours and I can definitely see coolant moving through the block now.

My money is on some trapped air.... move the whole thing about a bit.. gently! No shaking when its running smile.gif

You should return your GPU inlet and outlet to the same side of the card, ie both on the top inlet and outlet as you had it at first, it doesn't matter which side of the card you put them on as long as one is on the right and the other on the left, but if they are both on the top side of card the tubing run is shorter and it looks better as in your first configuration. On that note I'm pretty sure EK cards are directional, so you need to check that you are using the correct side as inlet, I'm pretty sure all the cards use the left port as inlet so I think you are ok but you should check anyway.

plugged in everything and it all seems to be running fine now. GPU is 50c while playing GTAV at 1500mhz.

I might do that but not today.. just happy to have it running and I'm in no hurry to start messing with it again.

Yeah I understand that, water loops can be a pain to make adjustments without QDCs
