Bitspower Titan X Waterblock Problems

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am final testing a PC I built for my teenage son, and my second custom water-cooled build. I am not an experienced builder at all, and this particular system has caused me all manner of problems. First, the rads I selected wouldn't fit in the case, so I had to get new ones. One one of my radiators (fortunately the bottom one) leaked like a sieve. I had two broken angle adapters from a very reliable brand. The LEDs I selected didn't want to play nice together. This build has been an object lesson in proper testing procedures and troubleshooting. Now, I'm facing (hopefully) my last problem: The Titan X in it is acting up.

The card is an EVGA Titan X SC. It's being cooled with the Bitspower full cover block and backplate . When I installed them, one of the holes in the backplate was slightly mis-aligned with its mate on the block, so I had to leave out one of the screws that hold them together.

When I started the system (Asus Deluxe X99, 5930k, 32GB Corsair Vengeance 2666 MHz, Kingston HyperX m.2, Corsair HX1000i in an NZXT Phantom 630) after leak testing, everything went well, so I went ahead and installed Windows 10, and Mr Murphy decided to visit me again. Windows kept crashing with "video_tdr_failure nvlddmkm.sys" error, and I had to reinstall it several times, Win10 was automatically updating to the latest Nvidia driver and it would crash. I tried practically all older drivers with the same result: as soon as the generic Microsoft video driver would be replaced with an Nvidia version, Windows 10 would crash and refuse to load again, and would need to be recovered to a point prior to the video driver installation.

I spent several hours researching this, and found many instances of video driver problems with the Titan X in Win10, but no reference to my specific situation. Because Win10 will always try to update the driver and install the updates without asking, I decided to try Win 8.1 instead. The system runs fine in 8.1, but no Nvidia drivers for the card could be installed. The driver crashed as soon as it was installed, and whenever Windows restarts. 8.1 appears to be more resilient, however, so instead of a system freeze or a BSOD, it simply resets to the default MS driver and continues to function.

I read that sometimes a cause for this behavior is an improperly seated GPU, so I decided to bite the bullet and test the installation again. I drained the loop, disconnected and re-sat the card, filled the loop and started again, no change. Then I took it out again, removed the water block and installed the stock cooler, and restarted, and voil√°! perfect! Windows recognizes it, the latest drivers install perfectly and the card works as expected. I haven't tried it under Win10, becasue I won't reinstall it until everything is back together, but I expect it to work as fine as it is in 8.1.

Having established there is nothing wrong with the GPU itself, I put the BP watercooling parts on it again, reinstalled it carefully, rehooked the loop, and started it again. The crashes and driver problems started again immediately. My conclusion is that there is something wrong with the dimensions of the block that prevents the card from making proper contact with the PCIE slot. I'm wondering if the problem was with my particular specimen, or whether it's a widespread issue with the BP Titan X blocks.

This has been the build from hell, made no easier by an anxious teenager nagging me all the time to just "stop messing with it" and give it to him already so he can move up from his aging Alienware. I expected to complete it in two weeks of evenings and weekends, and I've already spent almost two months on it, not to mention the amount of money I've wasted on inappropriate and malfunctioning hardware. Should I take the risk with another BP block, which may or may not have the same problem, or try an EK block and backplate, with which I don't have any experience?

Are you sure it's the block preventing proper seating of the card or could it perhaps be some kind of sensor freaking out that it doesn't see a cooling fan attached to the card... Is there any way to plug the stock cooler fan in while the waterblock is attached to the card?

What a Nightmare. Is there any possibility the tubing is pushing or pulling on the GPU and causing the issue?

Thanks for the fast reply! I'm not actually sure it's the waterblock, it's just the main suspect. On GPU-Z the card shows good temperatures (about 25C) when watercooled, so I don't think it's triggering any temperature alarms. Afterburner and PrecisionX don't even see it, probably because of the stopped driver under Windows. AFAIK there is no sensor on the motherboard or the GPU watching out for the presence of a fan. As to your specific question, the waterblock covers the GPU fan header, so there would be no way to plug anything to it with the block installed.

While I don't have conclusive evidence that the problem is with the dimensions of the waterblock, it certainly appears to be the case.

That's an interesting idea, but no. I just checked it, and there is a bit of slack in both directions (up and down), so the tubing is not the culprit
