Yeah. How do I gain access to the pump to give it a good cleaning? I'll use q tips for the fittings but how do I get in to the pump as that is probably he issue tbh

He beat me to it. The water equalizing. My loop is the same way. Spa directly to gpu and I have no issues. Ran heaven for quite a stretch.

*edit*

Another option tube wise would be ek's zmt 'rubber' tubing. I guess since it isn't made of plastic you don't get the plastisizer problem.

As for not going full custom, why not? By expanding an expandable AIO it's basically the same thing. At least with custom you get to choose your parts.

My loop is an expanded ek predator 240. It's custom enough for me. Good parts. The tubing aesthetically is a matter of opinion but I dig it.

Do you use dye in your loop?

My CPU has been perfectly fine for temps and nothing has changed but because water goes from the CPU straight to the GPU, the GPU gets hot water and it spawns a loop where temps only increase as my entire rig gets warmer due to this cycle.

When I launch a game, for the first 3-5 minutes, my GPU sits fine at 46-50c even when overvolted but goes all the way up to 58c when overvolted.

I need a mid point for the water from the CPU to get cooled before it reaches the GPU.

Also, you don't have anywhere near a 140w TDP CPU that is also overclocked lol

Like Trestles said. If you have the rad between the cpu and gpu you will see 1-2c difference at max.

Loop order makes practically no difference.

Can you give some more info?
Ambient temp, water temp, fan types/speeds?

How clean are the blocks? Did you clean the rad prior to building the loop?

And indeed, block contact could also be the problem.

My 360 rad keeps my gpu below 50 with a overclock. R9 290 uses around 300w @ 1250mhz and my cpu must be close to 250w @ 4.9ghz


Edit:
I didn't notice there were more replys already, just out of bed smile.gif

Reading those my money is on blockage for sure. Is either the cpu, gpu or both.

Open those up and take out the good old (soft) toothbrush.

If you're getting those kind of temps then perhaps I'm getting close to the correct temps as I'm sure that's close to my power draw.

I still think you should check the block. You telling the block feels hot is concerning me. If contact is good it shouldnt feel much warmer than the gpu temp.

What is the problem? just take that block apart smile.gif

We'll see how my temps are when I add the 420 to the loop.

Also if you do take the loop apart I can recommend you add a temp sensor. So much better than using an IR

1. The GPU block is fine as I installed it only but 2 weeks ago but the rest of the loop (besides tubing) has been running for 2 years plus.

2. I don't know how to add a temp sensor.

3. The block feels hot because when overvolted/overclocked, the vrms and memory get pretty darn hot and it isn't a full cover like EK, it uses thermal transfer from the uni block for the core to cool the rest.

The contact is good otherwise the heat would not be transferred to the block to make it hot in the first place.
The problem lies in getting that heat away from it.

Strip the cpu block and gpu block and check for blockages,ramp the fan speed up too..also look at general case ventilation if you are using a unisink.

Could you tell me hot to access the pump in the H320 block so I can clean that block as well as the pump?

No experience with it myself but there should be people here who can help you with that.

You might just start with the cpu block then. How long has it been used?

Quick Google search gave me this:

Make pictures while you are at it. I am always hungry. biggrin.gif

Nice, good job.
I like the contrast of the dark with the nick(?) rigid.

Also first time for me seeing the ION reservoir in action.
How does it look in person?
