Few Questions:
Does this sound good?

Pump-rad-cpu-gpu-pump-rad

Or what should I do? And is connecting the hoses simply clamping them on and tightening?

Then with the kit you just poor water (distilled?) into the res and check connections and fire it up? Any precautions that anyone would advise?

Also I watched some guides and one said it is advised once all together to take it all apart to make sure everything is touching the block. Should I do this? And if I do this would I need to reapply thermal paste and thermal pads?

Loop order doesn't affect temperatures, just use whatever gives you the least amount of tubing. Make sure that the water is flowing into the inlet on the CPU block, everything else can have water flow in either direction.

To connect the hoses first screw the fittings into the blocks and then slide the hose clamp onto the tubing. Then put the tubing over the barb and then tighten the clamp to secure the tubing.

As far as testing goes just unplug the PSU from everything except your pump, and then turn it on by shorting the green wire. This will make sure if you do have a leak (you most likely won't) that it won't harm anything as it will all be off.

You could take the block cover off, but it's easier to just test with temperatures. If you aren't getting under 70C VRM/Memory and <50C GPU core then you have a mounting issue.

How can I check VRM/memory with software? I didn't think you could with the GTX 580. But if I do remove everything to check mounting would I need to replace any thermal pads/paste?

And what do you mean turn it on by shorting the green wire? Shorting it out? Or will this make sense once I have it in my hands? lol

GPU-Z for VRM/Memory themrals. Here is how to turn the PSU on without the motherboard plugged in

So I just do that trick with it turned on and plugged in both to the wall and pump? My PSU doesn't have an I/O thing on the back. When plug in it is on.



And This is what I see in GPU-Z nothing about VRM/memory thermals I don't think the 580 has those sensors. So in that case best to take apart and check? If I do will I need to replace the thermal paste and pads?

Okay. Well feel free to remove the block after installation but I don't think you'll have any problems.

Yeah just plug PSU into wall pump into PSU, then use the switch on the back of the PSU to turn the pump on/off. Never run the pump unless the reservoir is full of water. If you run a pump dry it will break within a couple of minutes.

That was the problem my PSU doesn't have an I/0 on the back. It literally just has the power connector. So what can I do?

Plug and unplug it I guess.

EDIT: Or plug it into a powerstrip with a switch.

It already is. Thank so so much I have went through and repped all the posts on these threads that helped me. Thanks!

Just one last thing (I know lol) when I do that trick do I want the things plugged in that I want to power on before I use the paperclip or plug them in after he doesn't specify. Actually in the first post he says to turn it on from the start. So I'm guessing before even starting you plug in what you want to power on? So in this case the I/0 switch thing doesn't even matter.

You should plug them in first, it's not a good idea to run a power supply with no load.
