That can't be right can it?

EK full cover block along with a rasa rx360 kit. CPU load temps @ stock are around 45c.
Welcome to the world of water cooling. Those are the kind of GPU temperatures you get with it. You probably won't go above 50C, even when running a benchmark program with the CPU @ 4 GHz.

Those temperatures are awesome! I'll definitely get one of these. I just have to wait for software that will let me raise my GPU voltage above 1.1v now.

Will I need a backplate? I see them sold separately but do they come with one? What's the advantage of having one besides aesthetics?

You don't need a backplate, it's purely aesthetics. To get above 1.1v on the GPU core you are going to have to flash your card's bios.

Oh right, I see. Going off topic a bit here, but it's my thread anyway.

Flashing the BIOS of a GPU has always seemed a bit dodgy to me. What are the chances of me bricking the card? Never done it before.

I'm more than a little pumped about this. Although my cpu temps kinda suck right now, im hitting 54c at full intel burn test load at stock load.

I imagine a re-seat will probably fix that. My IHS on the cpu needs lapped as well as its not even close to flat.

I was flipping terrified to put the block on the card though, it was a daunting process, but once it was all done, it looked AMAZING. Heres what she looked like when I was leak testing.

Pretty low actually. Just make sure to make a backup of the card's bios before you do anything, and if something goes wrong you should be able to get back to that.

Kind of looks like the GPU is bending!

The temperature on your CPU seems alright at full load. When I run a LinX, after a few hours the load temperature is around 63C at 1.4V.

Alright, I'll have to find out how to do that then, gulp.

Quick question, as this thread seems pretty relevent.

Does KFA2 cover waterblocks in their warranty? The only vendor that I know for sure does is EVGA.

The ek block is great. My whole system (at stock speeds) never goes over 40, and usually 36-7 when playing bfbc2 maxed out for a few hours. Rs and rx240 pairedin the loop.
