7800gtx at 67C idle W/ WATERCOOLING!!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
i just finished installing my watercooling system and my video card is showing
67C idle temp. this was the same if not higher than before watercooling. im using a danger den tdx and a dual 120mm black ice. Im not sure if the problem is the water going from the cpu to the videocard but ive seen many systems with that at much lower temps. PLEASE HELP!!!

You mis-seated your gpu block, remove the block and check if the compound made a full connection with the core, if not reseat.

yep, make sure you seated the block correctly and didn't use too much thermal paste

Make sure you used a bb size of thermal paste, if unsure how big a bb is then its simular to a grain of rice, you do not need alot at all. MAKE SURE the block is securly seated properly. I don't want you to post in later dates, saying your cards died.
