post #30191 of 106463
Here's some pictures of my Watercool GPU-X3 block. The machining on the bottom is a little irregular, which is not a deal-breaker in itself, but the nickel plating looks as if it has a few little holes in it, which worries me. The third picture is a close-up of the hole that can be seen in the bottom-right corner of the second picture. Should I probably RMA this or are my expectations just too high?

I know it might be far fetched, but are all the areas that the full cover WB covers on the GPU even? Meaning could you lapp the entire block on 1 surface? lol that's what I'd do. And yes, high expectations, thats why people use thermal pads on waterblocks.

Doesnt matter. None of those surfaces come into contact with the actual GPU.

However I would at least send those pics to watercool and see what they suggest.

My issue isn't with the cooling performance, but rather with the quality of the surface finish.

I believe there's something in my rad or cpu block or both. Tonight when I get home I'm going to take everything apart inspecting/clean everything. Once that is done, I'm going set-up a loop outside of my case on my desk, test it using distilled water see if I'm still having problems. If everything works as it should then I'll put it back into my case. That's plan I'm going to work with for now.

I had told myself i wasn't gonna go water again in while and just get a nice air cooling setup. Then i looked through this thread about two weeks ago, now i have blocks for my motherboard and gpu at home waiting to be installed. biggrin.gif

EDIT: Crappy image of the absolute amazing looking MIPS motherboard block. wubsmiley.gif
