Safe for a few seconds - Nvidia - Page 2

post #11 of 14
you will be fine just to check if its on right if you r rly concerned get a bucket your pump and some tube and rig something up for a fast run it just needs the flowing water to get rid of the heat dump youll be fine into bios or windows if you wanna check each core

If you're really unsure, you could do it, but I wouldn't keep the computer on for more than ten seconds or so.

Oh, and the post about the H50 not being plugged in - that's a much better situation to be in, as there is water in the loop that can absorb quite a lot of heat, it just doesn't go anywhere. The difference with this poster is that there's no water anywhere yet, significanly diminishing the heat capacity of the system.

Starting up your GPU with just the waterblock installed should be fine actually. Remember, heat is still dissapated by the waterblock connected to your GPU, and as you just switch it on there will be next to no load on the GPU at all anyhow. I would do it.

I once ran a PC without a heatsink for a few hours. It was an Intel P4, and it had one of those crappy heatsinks that pushes and clicks into the motherboard only. Turns out those pins can go kaka and then come off, removing the heatsink from the CPU alltogether. The CPU was fine BTW, even after hours of strain at 95C...
