Definitely agree with this. FE cards are horrible if you don't swap it out with a better cooler. However, they are the best if you plan to watercool as they have the most options when it comes to waterblocks.

I did that with a (actually two because I don't learn lessons) 290x and a Kraken G10. When it came time to install the Hybrid on my Ti, I was so worried that I'd tighten it too much that I set my screw driver to ratchet in the loosen direction and as soon as it started clicking I stopped. That seemed to be a perfect amount of pressure, I max out around 48c @ 2062mhz.

Really? I just get a power tool and drill it on unevenly at 1000 ft-lbs until the fasteners strip and the die permanently deforms. I then RMA it and repeat the process until I finally get one that works.

In all seriousness, that's why it's important to use a steel backplate like the kraken has. It will stop the board from flexing. Definitely good to just go finger tight and then do 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn all around.

not really true. if you put the thermal grizz on them and run a 1.1:1 fan curve, it'll be loud but fairly chilled. Two hours of heaven, TG FE was at 71c, my Aorus was the same. After I thermal grizzed the Aorus it is 64c same scenario.

So, results from Thermal Grizzly Kyronaut on an Aorus: 4c idle, 7c-8c full load improvement. VERY nice. I cant imagine why they dont use better thermal paste with all the effort they put into cooling. I guess because it requires human hands.

Time to go see what my 2 hour high temp mark is in BF1 now.

It can handle more than that, but it just doesn't need it.

I always have to temper my torque as I'm used to car parts (and iron and steel ones at that), so pinkies out, small screw drivers, etc... )

I've not broken any of those stupidly small screws Nvidia now uses on their back plates. Watching Gamer's Nexus donk those was pretty funny, but they are stupidly tiny.

My finding last night is one of my cards is a bit of a nag compared to the other. I see 110% peak TDP to get/stay above 2000MHz on one card, but 126% with the Strix BIOS (FE cards, EK water blocks, Strix BIOS).

It's important to use a #00 Phillips on them. They shouldn't break. I know they had the right screw driver, not sure why they broke them.

Solution: this most likely will work - remove the back-plate and try then. If that still doesn't work, remove the block and back-plate, plug it in naked- no danger as the GPU won't be under load, then turn it off once it posts- it should post.

Source: Had the same issue with my 980 TI and the Swiftech back-plate I had. As soon as I took off the back-plate it worked just fine.

Thanks,
Great minds think alike. I did try naked and same thing happened. (Also tried with stock cooler first.)
Baffled. Once the water block was in it did run for a little while so maybe a coincidence...

So were you able to get it to work or still no dice?

Yeah I just found my old 660ti. Just have to add a temporary section to my loop to not blow water all over.

the loop certainly complicates gpu issues...

@alucardis666 update on your titan? im trippin for you, bro! That is worth it's weight in silver, like ACTUALLY, and I think the fedex guys are getting their hustle on.
