Can't get this air bubble out - Page 15

post #141 of 166



This is an example of how close normal thread length fittings come to the openings on new ek GPU blocks. If the threads are excessively long they can block flow. You an see in the second pic where the metal of the C47 fitting threads comes right up to the narrow inlet gap, and the block threads above it.
I would be surprised if that were the case with primochill fittings though. Lots of people use them, so it would be better known.

It's easy enough to check. Just open the stop plug above and have a look. You might get a very small amount of fluid emerge but as long as the rest of the loop, including the res, is sealed it won't drain everywhere. Just have something absorbent ready.
It will be the underside fitting that will be the problem because there is less thread space available there than on the top side.
Edit: Underside when fitted to a block and mounted in a normal ATX case. Not the contact side of the block. In the OP's case the left side fitting is mounted to the short side. So opening the upward facing stop fitting will let you see.

Well I let the res open so that air can work its way out and now it runs at around 55c instead of 80-85. The system was off though.

i would put my money on the fittings as well. I was worried about this when i ordered my parts which is why i got the EK fittings even though i really wanted monsoon. I just couldnt find the thread dimensions for them so i didnt want to risk it.

you could always ask boxgods the thread dimensions (monsoon owner) . he doesnt bite smile.gif

Strange.. what does the fixed speed D5 spin up to?

I had two GPUs and a CPU on a single 240mm rad and my GPUs never hit 50c gaming. Something is seriously wrong with your setup. (IMO too much radiator)

Whoahhh, hold up.

What sort of GPU were they? what sort of fan speeds were you running? That is exceptional performance ... there is no such thing as too much rad though. There is diminishing returns rad ... there is pointless and a waste rad ... but that is a lot of rad, and too much is not really possible in our environments and use cases.

I think he meant too much rad for the pump

Yeah I had a 420 and 360, and even with just a single 980 Ti and 4930K I still saw GPU temps get up to around 44C when gaming. Granted all rad fans stayed around 700-900 rpm, but that's just exceptional performance. (unless your ambient is below 10C, then ok tongue.gif)
