Are your CPU temps good? I don't know anything about watercooling but perhaps the GPU waterblocks are flawed in some way?

Edit: Nice build so far btw, really digging the almost florescent orange, pretty much like a radioactive orange tongue.gif

Cheers Anon inc thumb.gif that's EK Primochill orange UV tubing, looks sick against the black.It's next level stuff compared to Feser's UV tubing, well worth the extra spends thumb.gif . Now it's leak tested I've flushed and filled it with Mayhem's pastel orange. To test the loop I filled it with EK clear non conductive cooolant in case it leaked out like my last one. Kitchen tiles still have a hint of red redface.gif . good job I did as well. The FeozenQ reator res leaked through the cathode tube. Finally sealed it up at 3am after several attempts mad.gif

While it was being leak tested I added a couple of lil mods to it. I would have liked to have put the 360mm rad inside the case, but this is just a temporary home for my rig while I build it's final residence.

One more quick mod I'll do on it is cut a side window into it tomorrow at work. I've got some spare amber acrylic from the main build and some rubber channel. might as well show off the interior wink.gif up to now I've got this far

Hi sparkles, may I interject that something isn't running fine. My 290x doesn't get above 40c stressed to the max. BF4, no more than 32c. everything on ultra. Do you have a recent pic and a list of parts for your build. maybe the loop just needs a different route. have you given it a good jiggle to release any trapped air.

Yeah the water could be fine but, theres loads of factors you have to think about. Air bubbles, dead water etc.

Oh sparkles, i have the same problem as you right now, but its because of my ghetto loop the loop between the rad and my bridge, so i know what the problem is.
So check your loop around the cards, fittings etc.

If you have the radiator fill port thing open you can get some of the air out.

Edit: As you have normal tubing you can shake it and flick the tubing to move the air out.

What are your CPU temps like Sparkles? Are they going as high as your GPUs? If your CPU temps are fine I can only think it could probably be 2 real problems, seating and thermal paste on the GPUs and blocks, which you have already checked or the flow direction of your loop thru your GPUs. Depending on your GPU blocks AFAIK the liquid is supposed to flow thru the card across the jet plates and grooves a certain way to get the best out of its cooling potential. Its a PITA but maybe if you switch your loop around and test somehow having the CPU flow into the GPUs and back to the pump/res you might have more luck with temps.

Those temps are way to high,in titanfall with fans at 1000rpm i dnt pass 42c,and its summer weather here....There is something wrong with the way you mounted your blocks....

Amazing dude, didn't spot the Black Mesa logo before now, and i finally understand what you're were going for, the good old Half-Life orange color, HL3 confirmed?

And i love FrozenQ reservoirs, very costly but oh so worth it imo. Though again i haven't WC'd but i'd probably go for a FrozenQ Liquid Fusion res just because it reminds me so much of the T-Virus. The color i would go for i still don't know for sure, but i would love doing completely white, since it's rare to see and i like the cleanness of it.

Anyways keep up the good work looking forward to seeing more thumb.gif

Btw the most insane HL2 case mod i've ever seen was this one, couldn't find any pictures that were bigger, the forum it was posted on is dead sadly. But anyways that mod is very over the top, but i do like extreme mods sometimes biggrin.gif

Blagh,

Maybe I put too much thermal paste on this time frown.gif

I checked added the cpu temps to msi afterburner so whilst playing Titanfall highest settings @ 1440p, cpu temps where around 40°C(the hottest core). It also seems that Titanfall only uses 1 gpu.

You think there could still be air in the loop, I'll try shaking it, I'll slowly open the top port on the 200mm. I'm not really in the mood to drain the loop again tongue.gif
I do have to say that the amount of water in the reservoir seems to be lowering.

My idle temps are good though, both cards 24°C and cpu around 20/25°C.
Fans are @ 1000rpm for the 360mm rad and 500rpm for the 200mm.

Maybe I should try the loop without the fc link bridge?

Edit:
If I where to get new card this would be the pricing:

*290x with EK full cover block + backplate => 621 Euro
*780ti with EK full cover block+ backplate => 777 Euro

Thanks, it's turned out a lot better than I expected. The Frozenq res' s look good, but form definitely follows function with them. EK don't have anything to worry about in the quality stakes. I was looking for the triple spiral for the build , but couldn't find any in this back water of the global American hegemony. I saw that build when I was looking for inspiration on my main build, it still looks good today and it's a ten year old build . Here's hoping mine might be rrady before HL3 finally arrives.

When I originally did the build it was an A typical Republic of Gamers red and black and I soon got bored of it, and as Half Life is my favourite game and orange is a bit of a more left field colour to the typical red/black or blue/silver colour scheme of most builds, I went with that. Problem now is I like the look of this more than my main build lol.

I also added a couple of other Half life extras into the build.



and just to show my level of fanboyism for Half life. This is my office wall at work:thumb:

Too much thermal paste would help give you higher temps but def not that bad, @ 40c on your CPU, your loop is obviously running completely fine esp since your GPUs are first n the block order. Titanfall from what I have read is a bit shaky when it comes to Xfire intermittently working.

 

Air in the loop is a big possibility but should be starting to bleed considerably by now I should think. Make sure when bleeding air from your 200mm rad you have your fill port in the top of your res open to equalize the pressure, I didn't the first time and it bled less than a 1/4 of the air trapped inside the rad, when I worked out why and it bled, liquid came spurting out like a water pistol lol.

 

Idle temps seem fine, maybe it is the FC Link Bridge. Have you thought about swapping the GPU Blocks over on the cards? Maybe its a faulty block?
