New to watercooling - encountered a few issues

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
well i got my TT Big water SE yesterday
and just finished building it up and i have a few questions regarding problems i'm having

first - noise
i keep hearing the sound of water coming from the res
if its cause of bubbles how do i get rid of them?

second - Before i oc'ed the gpu EVEREST showed me 29c GPU temp
now its 25% oc and everest still shows 29c
could everest be wrong and the gpu is frying?

third -
What are these things?

everything seems to work without them
are they important?

what is that connector connected to. It looks as if it only has one wire on it which means its an rpm monitor wire that attaches to the 3 pin connectors on your motherboard to monitor the speed of a fan via bios.

Make sure you have your res filled all the way up or it will make a sloshing sound.

Well I've had my system up for 4-5 months now. When i first set it up, i was at an amazing 24-25c idle. Now that i have O/C, my temp are at 29-31c
So the W/C does very well with temps. Mine does not fluctuate as much, compared to air.

Once you let it settle down, you may experience a slyte increase in temps.
Unless you live in Alaska

I am assuming the connector your holding would be off your power supply?
I have one on mine and dont use it. ((RPM))

Sorry edited.
The connector your holding. Is it from your power supply?

The yellow wire i believe is for RPM. Not needed unless you want to monitor your RPM.

You say one is coming from the Pump and the other from the Radiator assembly?

Simple then, Plug them into the motherboard (I'm pretty sure it's just for RPM monitoring since there is only one wire).

Just plug them into spare 3-pin connectors on the motherboard and they should monitor RPM's for the Radiator fan and pump if that is where they are coming from.
