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

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.
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.Edited by d0mmie - 4/23/17 at 2:06pm
