yeah well, hopefully the monoblock does better than component cooling, and does not get borked up since you can't flush the loop. good luck.
btw - the vrms really do not need to be water cooled.
lol - that ****'l probably could use it.
Well once i can afford to i'm going to buy a new pump anyway as i was wanting to run two D5 in serial for redundancy and to counteract the effect of having 1280mm of rad space, 2 TITAN X GPU blocks, and a monoblock etc..
Unfortunately my money has been in limbo for some time; one of the multiple CPUs i bought to bin for max OC had a different chip in the box so i returned it but amazon is making excuses about how long before they refund me; and i didn't want to sell the 2nd 6950X i had yet till i could verify that the one i currently have running is fast enough for my needs (which is impossible with it sitting at ~80C since i can never tell whether the chip will clock higher on lower temps until i actually GET lower temps if you see what i mean)
Until then i can't afford to buy another pump or the monoblock etc..
I can just barely afford to get a replacement block base, which of course would become pointless once the monoblock is purchased.
I guess my dilemma is just one of patience...if i wait till amazon refunds me or someone buys the extra 6950X etc.. i'd have plenty of money to buy all the parts i'm getting (the monoblock, 2nd pump, proper anti-corrosive coolant, new fittings that aren't corroded, new RAM, the 2nde GPU block i haven't gotten yet etc..) It's just that i'm so impatient and hate having high temps like this so it's hard to wait lol.Edited by DarkIdeals - 9/25/16 at 4:02pm
