Monsoon's Chainguns definitely have a certain look to them that does not appeal to everyone. Some days I like them, some days I don't. Which means with that kind of flip flopping, I doubt I would ever go for them.

Washing a PCB is fine as long as its dried properly. Spraying a board with alcohol is also fine,it displaces water that can hide under SM components.

The trick is drying it right out,this requires patience.

Agree partially. You know that tap water has al sorts of stuff in it that you don't want. Distilled.. better.

You also know that heavy clockers and especially LN2 switches gear often. I am talking about the long term effects.

There are special pcb cleaners though. Some can even be used when a system is up and running. Stuff can be used for servers for example.

Don't want this to make a multi-page discussion so lets just say we are both right.

But you are right on the drying part. Seen my fair share of people just taking the excess moisture of and booting. The key is in the nooks and crannies. tongue.gif

Tap water does indeed have 'stuff' in it....and once dry will not affect the PCB,I have an SR2 here that has been washed a few times now with no problems
The fact is,washing a board does not harm to longevity if its dried correctly. There is nothing on the PCB that is damaged by water unless its live,this is fact...not opinion.

PCB cleaners are used for the fast flash off capability,enabling faster return to service.

The stuff in tap water enables it to conduct current,the 'stuff' by itself will not,it requires the water suspension.

As for ln2 clockers running equipment for less time...this is true...however,they run it far beyond spec that any faults are shown up quickly.

Ok, so we have waterblocks for rx 480 from ek and xspc coming. Im adding third party to party. Watercool smile.gif Info provided directly from them.

I sleep better at night when i wash my stuff with distilled water. biggrin.gif Never washed a PCB, but i started washing my fans.... First i wash them with soap and tap water, then i just rinse them with distilled water. Partly because i want them to be spot clean, so there is no limescale residue on them.

Truth, people think washing electronics is bad for them, the fact is, as long as there is no power to it, it won't get damaged if left to dry. Mac keyboards get thrown into dishwashers in the USA a bit apparently I remember seeing a video on the tubes about it lol. Like stated in your last post on this subject PCB cleaners are much faster. biggrin.gif

Has anyone ever heard of a CPU block affecting GPU temps

I recently changed my Alphacool Rads out for some Black ice ones and changed my CPU block from original Supremacy to a Supremacy EVO Full Nickel
And when I put the loop back together the temps on GPU1 is now consistently 5-6c higher than GPU2 while before they were the same with even GPU2 being 1c hotter

I know the Nemesis GTS is really restrictive so I put my D5 pump at full speed and that didn’t make a difference
I swapped my Alphacool rads back in but it didn’t seem to make a difference either as its still 5c higher the only other thing that’s changed is the CPU block

when i get home i might swap the original supremacy back in

You answered your own question really, you've done all the testing so would suggest the 5c is either due to the added heat or restriction plus just making your pump faster doesn't reduce temps alone your fans do most of the leg work when cooling your system. if you've knocked a fan plug off while changing things then 5c would be a result.

It's possible your ambient temps could be to blame if it's warmer in the house or you adding to the loop you disturbed something? Not sure lol.
