But if it's the loop wouldn't the cpu get hotter too? I actually can't imagine what would be wrong in the loop. Damn you WC why did you look so awesome and tempting to try, I should have stayed with my h100i and stock gpu coolers tongue.gif

I contacted EK and they also think it's an airbubble, I find it strange though that it would affect the 2 cards.
I can say that the cards do get hot this time, so I imagine that means that the block has good contact.

What I also find strange is that when I just redid the blocks and tested in furmark the hottest temp I got was 52°C and yesterday I tried it again and I got 76°C. Maybe I should pull apart the entire thing and redo everything.

The bridge is most definatly parallel.

I would maybe give that a try and then if that still doesn't resolve it, I would try contacting EK again. Unless those thermal pads are causing a gap, I can't see what has been wrong with your method. Again, once you take off the block you'll quite clearly tell if the block is contacting the GPU, like you did last time. And don't be discouraged. Its a pain, but totally worth it once you iron out all the bugs. Just be glad you didn't do hardline lol. Troubleshooting my first loop was MUCH harder with the acrylic.

I'll try the bleeding tonight first.

I'm gonna order some extra fittings I think and some more tubing just to be sure.

I was thinking of adding something like this for the top 360mm rad, coz it was very difficult to tighten the fittings with the fans.
The tubing that has the most strain on it is the one going from the cpu to the res and the one from the res to the pump. Maybe I should use an angled fitting there.
I'll buy the bitspower ones.

Here's my loop again. Just fyi the liquid now is just above the black holder.




Also could anyone give some suggestions where I could use some 90/45° fittings to make things easier.

Okay, I think it's the loop because of the way mines is. I have the same probablem. As sparkles fittings and blocks are good and fits fine than that leaves it with the loop.

For example.
My cpu and second gpu is perfectly fine. But because I have that stupid loop the loop above my bridge it causes my water in my first block to be "dead" so it doesn't go through all the blocks properly. It just merely passes the block towards my second card.

That's what I think sparkles problem is.
Somewhere in her loop. There's dead waterz

Oh and i know this is because half of my gpu block is cold and the other half is hot.

But how can I check that? and if that is the problem, what is causing it! the bridge?

The water, check for bubbles. Check for the water in the tubing thats "bypassing" eachother. I could be wrong, but this is what's happening to me.. Its all the advice i can give.

The extensions are a good idea. As for the 45/90s, I would only use them if you're seeing a fairly tight radius bend in your tubing. If there isn't a chance for a kink, I wouldn't bother. Its not that they will be a waste, they would still function well, its just that they aren't really necessary

If you really want to use them, I would maybe put 2 90s on your pump intake and outlet, and MAYBE a 90 on your res return. just my 2c.

Hmmm. It is possible. However those bridges are designed to be used in either direction. Flow in has to equal flow out, as long as one of the GPU blocks aren't more restrictive than the other (all things being equal) then it should create any situation where the water is pooling. Same with the rads. If there is water going in, there has to be water coming out. I have the same block, and my cards are one degree apart if any. I have mine flowing the other way to sparkles, but like I said, they do work both ways (people that use R-ATX have no issue)

To bad some of you guys don't live close to me tongue.gif
Haha, none of my computer friends around knows anything about watercooling.

I'll lay the pc on it's side tonight, guess that's the best way to check or get the air out?
My mother is gonna think I'm nuts tongue.gif

I don't know man, it's how i see it. To be honest with you, I'm just a noob. I'm just saying it as i see it.

Just make sure the pump isn't going to be fed air. The way that I was told to bleed out the loop was to gently rock it back and forth and listen for the change in sound in the loop. It will sound like a "fizzing" sound (only way i can think of it) when the air is being pushed out and then it will settle again. Keep repeating until it no longer fizzes when you rock it back and forth. And yeah, its hard when you don't have a few people around that can help. I'm lucky that I have a couple buddies that are into this stuff too so we trade suggestions and ideas back and forth. I'd offer a skype chat but as I said without putting my hands on the blocks I don't think I would be any help.

All good man. It helps getting different perspectives. I'm mostly going off of the stuff I learned in my first year of engineering tech. They taught us a bit of fluid mechanics, but I'm an electrical engineering technologist so its not my specialty. The way fluid flows has many parallels in concept to the way electricity flows, so it makes it a good teaching point to start the basics. However since I can't really see it in front of me, there is always the possibility that something very strange is happening and what you are saying is infact the issue. There are not bad suggestions.

I'm still almost 80% sure that its just a case of it not making full contact.
