Easy, inexpensive AIO liquid cooling for two Titan Xs? - Page 9

EVGA Hybrid cooling kit for the Titan X

http://www.evga.com/products/Product.aspx?pn=400-HY-0990-B1

They sold the card with the kit included, this is the kit to upgrade a stock card. I own a 980ti H and love it.

First my goal was cooling performance, and silence.... with that said.....

I ended up ordering two of the EVGA 980 Ti Hybrid Kits for my Titan X cards, one because they were sold out and haven't come back in stock and after reading around and seeing the only difference was the shroud (which I intend to paint anyway).

Installation was pretty easy, performance wise I dropped 30c on both cards

However.....

The stock fans are incredibly noisy, I replaced these with two Corsair 120MM SP fans I had... much much quieter at load (and they look better matching my theme)

The system at idle now sadly is louder than it was before. This is due to the pump noise on these AIO kits.... I think it is just going full RPM all the time. Under load sure this system is a lot quieter than it was before, however I had hoped for dead silent when idle / web surfing.


Every now and then I get a water splashing / trickling sound especially if the system has been off for a bit and turned back on. I tried placing the radiators the way they suggested but it doesn't make a difference.


I'm actually going to start another thread on this but someone posted that they modded the pump to attach to a MB header which then you could control the pump RPM.

I tried to warn you the AIO's were junk. They all make noise. That is why I dumped my Seidon, then a H100. The fans of course, will make noise. It is not a full cover block....

If you want a bulletproof quiet system, you have to plan out a custom loop. Plain and simple.

I beg to differ I have had 2 H100s, an H60 and now a H110, NONE have any pump noise at all. I am very picky on noise, I immediately change the stock fans most of the time anyway for much quieter fans.

I don't disagree. I've used an H110 and an H110i and comparing them to an NZXT Kraken X61, the Corsairs were silent in terms of their pumps. The NZXT had to be RMA'd.

But those solutions are hokey and if someone wants to water cool a TITAN X, I would try to steer them away from an AIO mounting bracket so fast...

I think it is luck of the draw. My H80i makes no real noise(I have to place my ear right next to it).

I have an LQ310, now that has a loud pump. I was running it with one of those zalman inline resistor adapters to quiet it down to an acceptable level I later noticed I can remove it and it is not as loud as it once was, but still not silent by any means.

Take care when controlling All-In-One pumps. My LQ310 will actually stop turning(well not start it may be able to go a bit lower after running, but not like a fan) under about 7 volts.

I had a H50, H100, H100i, Swiftech H220. All crapped out after about a year or less. The two H100's started to make grinding noises in the pumps. The H50 just flat out died. The H220 started to freak out reving the pump up and down and then would stop for a min or two. No reason at all. Just started randomly. I don't use AIO water at all. Custom or air. That's it.


You can get good temps from the stock Titan X cooler, BTW. You just have to crank the fans.

Before I put the blocks on my GPU's

after

62-63 on stock cooling. Only change I made was putting ICDiamond on the cards. But, custom water is by far the way to go.

I hear you but your experience with them and the number of these setups youve run is very limited. Now I realize a lot of people do not like them and that is fine. I have had custom water setups and I also get that. I can agree that a properly designed custom water cooling system is superior to the cooling performance of AIO/CLCs. I also realize this is just my experience and that it is quite limited as well so this is just my 2 pennies. But to me, the benefits of the AIO/CLCs are pretty clear and they definitely have their place in the market. Especially on GPUs. They are quite useful for dumping the heat generated from the GPU straight out of the case.

At this point I have easily installed well over 100 of the various AIO/CLC kits. Primarily the Corsair variants but there is a mixture. These include 25+ truck mounted setups that see a very wide variety of operational environments. I am aware of exactly two failures and on one of them I am 90% sure it was operator error. So the point I would throw out is that while perhaps not the best or most quiet cooling solution out there, they are effective none the less, the prices are reasonable overall and Ive also found them quite reliable. Combined with the lack of maintenance and lack of a need for a high level of experience installing custom equipment, its no surprise that GPU manufacturers are taking the opportunity to get extra performance and money out of users. Kits like Corsairs HG-10 and NZXTs G-10 can typically be moved from GPU to GPU most of the time too. Ive installed the last three SLI GPU setups on my personal gaming machine with the same G-10 brackets and coolers without issue.

I got the EVGA 980ti Hybrid, the fan that came with it is rather loud, no problem though i just took it off and replaced it with one of my choice, i then connected it to my Mobo and controlled it with speedfan, i run 22 idle and 44 on load ( gaming ) fans running max 60%. thumb.gif

Thats fine and dandy. But a 100% failure rate for me has put me off. I used to be a big proponent of them. Now, not a chance. That is my experiance and my opinion on the products. The only possible exceptions would be something like the EK Predator units since the use the same pumps they sell for custom loops. But, thats it. Thats good that you have had good luck, i have not. So i can not in good conscience recommend them. To anyone.
