post #71 of 106
How much of a difference would there be between the Eisbaer waterblock and using a different one? Is it worth buying a separate pump/res & waterblock for the CPU? Only thing is then the simplicity goes out the window kinda, i have the Eiswolf but haven't set it up yet. Lowest noise possible should always be a top priority with coolers though IMO, at least with the pump.

eisbaer is louder then the Eiswolf/ Silent loop CPU block. comparing the two would be like sleeping in a sound proof room and then under a jet haha, Eisbaer is still better then older gen and current AIO but you'll hear its over the Eiswolf.

Just use the Eiswolf to drive a CPU block, like alphacools new Eisblock. I have my Silent loop driving a phanteks gpu block and a EKWB SE 240 rad. Have an i5 7600k @ 5.1 with 1.33v and strix 1070 sitting top of the Firestrike board biggrin.gif, water temp is 25c idle and 31c under load with Silent Wing 3 fans

Hi,

I have a problem with the alphacool eisbaer extension set (http://www.aquatuning.de/wasserkuehlung/schlaeuche/schlaeuche/21103/alphacool-eisbaer-quick-connect-extension-kit): I want to connect it to my GPU block (http://www.aquatuning.de/wasserkuehlung/gpu-kuehler/gpu-komplettkuehler/21725/alphacool-nexxxos-gpx-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1060-m05-mit-backplate-schwarz), however I can't get it tight - meaning that although I connect them by hand (no tools!) as tight as possible there's water leaking out of both connections between the extension and the GPU block fitting.
Here are photos of the respective parts:



Are there any tips you can give me? Is it eventually a bad product? I doubt that, because it happens to both connections and I therefore assume a user error.

Thanks ahead!

You have to use a wrench to tighten those fittings properly

So you think that the extensions should be connected to the fittings using tools? Because all I heard - also from aquatuning - was to never use tools. (Sorry, but this is my first build)

Thanks for the answer. I'll give it a try and report back.

I actually did that and it seems to have worked! Thanks a lot! I'll let it run with no load and a lot of paper towel for the next 5-10 hours while closely monitoring the fittings.

One further question: The Eisbaer pump is quite audible with CPU fan options turned to silent in the UEFI settings. Is this something that will change over time once all the air left the system?

I actually just set it up, first time to WC a GPU but i have to say what a PITA experience it has been so far, i got a bit confused on part of the instructions, and now that i have it running the temps are not right. They randomly jump up and starting the valley benchmark the temps basically go straight to 90+c. Looks like more fiddling around tomorrow to see what's wrong!

Not only that but i had to avoid the top PCIE slot because a little bit of my NHD15 blocks this cooler. Nothing has gone right yet.

The fans included with the Eisbaer isn't exactly FANtastic (pun intended)

So I assume here you're talking about the Eiswolf.

If you GPU hits 90C in a matter of seconds then your pump isn't functioning correct, and the reason is probably air bubbles stuck inside the pump. I don't know how you mounted the radiator but make sure it's above the pump, and the tubes stick out at the bottom of the radiator. Shake and tilt the chassis while the pump is running, to move the air bubbles out. The whole point is to get the excess air to move into the top compartment of the radiator and have it stay there. It might also help running your pump at only 50% speed (control it through the BIOS), makes it a bit easier get micro bubbles to move out as well. This can take a couple of days.

Problem with these current Eiswolf is that it seems the factory didn't properly bleed out all the air, so these issues pop up unfortunately.

Yep the Eiswolf only, the temperature is also randomly fluctuating at idle sometimes and by quite a lot. I flipped the radiator like you said so that the tubes leave the bottom of the radiator, didn't seem to make any difference. I really don't think moving the rad to the top of the case will make anything better.. my guess is i need to tighten the block, though i could be wrong. I'm not messing around with it anymore today though so will see tomorrow.

I did not mean the fans. You're right that they are quite load and I'll provably change them. I was talking about the pump itself which was quite audible. However, it got considerably better after all the air left the system.
A further question: I read that it should be possible to run the pump at lower voltage. It's a three pin header connected to my CPU header on the main board. However I do not seem to be able to vary the speed. Neither via different settings in the UEFI nor via the Asus fan control software.
So how to regulate the speed/voltage?
