Eliau81:

I'm sorry to say I'd have to kind of side with Joker on this one. If you aren't going to go full custom loop and get respectable and tested full blocks from EK or aqua-comptuer.de, then stick with the stock coolers. Taking an AIO off a different card and going that route doesn't seem worth the risk.

I really hope you get your money back and nvidia doesn't read this thread !

Side comment:

So I was running more Fire Strike Ultra Benches and this time had the Power Limit displayed in the Precsion X OSD.

I have the power slider set to its max of 120% and + 175 Mhz on the GPU clock and +500 on the Mhz.

I was watching clock speeds and power usage (the temps are fine to me under the EK blocks) and noticed the cards seemed to max out at 2000 and then one card or the other would smack into the 120% (briefly would see 121%) and then one or both would rapidly drop down to 1975, 1987, 1974, 1962, etc. The highest I would see was 2000 and it wasn't sustained very long before that power limit hit. I ran FSU back to back in this config and got:
Run 1: 13817
Run 2: 13749

I really hope someone can crack the BIOS and let us crank that slider to 125% or 130% and not have to deal with strange PCB mods !!

I created an account just to write this comment. I hope I can help you eliau81.
I've been following this thread a lot!

I had two gtx 1080 EVGA FE in SLI and I just switched to one titan x pascal becase I noticed stuttering on my 4k television with SLI (also have a 165Hz g-sync). And one card is just way simpler IMO.

I installed AIO watercooling with kraken G10s on my gtx 1080. The first time I damaged the card (don't know why because I was really careful) and it wasn't even detected in my system. I had to RMA it and the reason I chose EVGA is because they have the best warranty. I replaced the original cooler and without a single question they gave me a brand new gtx 1080 FE without any fee (for this reason I will always buy EVGA when I can).

Now, titan X Pascal is from Nvidia directly and they don't seem to have a really good warranty... but it's not our fault if a 1800$CAN GPU has a cooler that SUCKS REALLY BAD. So it's totally legitimate to change the cooler...

I guess your best luck is to replace the original cooler as clean as you can and tell them the product was dead on arrival... it was possibly already damaged and just by changing the cooler it killed the card... who knows!

I hope you will get a replacement...

I just received my EK custom loop kit today. Will be installing my first custom loop this weekend!
I'm a bit stressed now that I see someone has broken his card...

I've never been under the impression that video card overclocking would void warranty since it's blocked in the driver by thermal and power limits. Unless, of course, you're using a custom bios. So this did tick me off.

As long as thay don't have any proof that you have overclocked your card (which they don't), you don't have to worry about that I guess.

what tool did you use to unscrew hex bolts can see lots of worn circles on the pcb around screw holes , seems like used a little to much force and would be noticable should you return it and they dissasemble to inspect pcb.

The worn circles look like you gone in with a socket which is to big and pushed down to hard as you have unscrewed the hex bolts , damaging various parts on the pcb.

Funny you mention the hex bolts.

I put EK full blocks on my XPs. EK does NOT include a 4.5mm socket or wrench. In their PDF instructions they say to use a 4.5mm socket (which isn't included) or use pliers but be careful of damaging the area around each hex screw!

I had a 4.5mm tiny wrench with an inclined angle and it was fine. But to remove all those with a pair of pliers might have been lame, especially on 2 X cards.

The good news is you don't use those hex screws when reassembling the card with the EK blocks.

The hex bolts are actually 4 mm , the instructions including with block tell you to use 4mm ... if your using 4.5 mm at a angle your setting yourself up for a accident on a very expensive card. Same as anyone using pliers which was on the first batch of instructions from ek, which has since been further updated instructing users not to use pliers.

Best thing for anyone is to get down local hardware store and get correct hex socket bolt / driver ie 4mm an use that.

Changing the stock cooler voids the warranty .
