pump > res> rad> cpu > gpu > pump

like i said check your GPU blocks. your cpu is fine

run OCCT

i saw your thread about your res. guess looks like you need a bigger one.

i saw someone had the same thread. i'll do some more background checks.

its 3am ***

Thanks wind and k0rn. My reservoir problem was easily fixed by removing the top tube. This is now my only issue.

What is OCCT?

Please check out this thread: http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/938294-buildlog-evga-superclocked-gtx-580-full.html

It's my buildlog of the EK-FC580 blocks onto the graphics card themselves. There's one picture where there is no thermal padding on the chip but you can be rest assured they're all covered so that's not the problem.

Do you see anything else wrong because this would save me from taking it all apart if it's not the problem, although it seems to be the only explanation at this point.

Please, for the love of God someone have a good idea and save me. Honestly I would do anything for you.

I'm just so confused.

You could have air stuck in the GPU blocks. Did you shake your case around when you were letting the air bleed out of the loop?

Sounds like your GPU blocks might need to be reseated or there's some air in there. I looked through your photos and didn't notice anything you did wrong, but you can't tell from every motion how you went about it. CPU temps are good. Something definitely isn't happening correctly with those video cards. With my 470s the temps are within a couple c of each other at all times also.

Hang in there and get some more responses before you go tearing your blocks apart. You have an awesome build, no need to give up over some problems. People here will help you out smile.gif

yeah i saw that. very interesting stuff

OCCT is like furmark or any bench test for cpu/ram

but its not your CPU but what i'm wondering is from CPU to GPU why is your GPU so hot other than there isn't water going through your blocks correctly. have you tried going through the inlet top and then inlet bottom back into your res or to your pump then rad.

cause im still new to this i would also like to prevent this to happening to me.

check the temp of the water going out. if its hot then it should be well duh if not then either the links or whatever the link is sitting on isn't properly working

I have two ideas:
1. Did you remember to remove the sticker from the gpu area on the blocks before you installed them? I forget this on my cpu block, temps were 75-80 degrees load. doh.gif

2. Feel the pcb around the gpu under load. Is it burning hot? If it isn't your monitoring software probably needs an update. I was changing a cooler on a graphics card which belonged to my mate. It was 100C under load... installed another temp monitor and restarted, 50 degrees load.

I am 99.9% sure that it's down to the graphics card not being seated properly. This could mean that the paste smeared slightly when you installed the blocks, trapping a little air bubble between processor and cooling block. e.g.

First off, I admit that I do not have much experience with watercooling a graphics card and I am just using my knowledge of watercooling a CPU.

Now, I have gone through your build log of your graphics cards. Check this video out. It is Skinnee's installation of an EK waterblock onto a GTX480. Go through this 9-minute video guide and use it as a reference to check your own installation.
Link: [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8x1LID8kyjM[/ame]

One thing I do notice from your build log is that you did not document that you took out the water block after the initial put on to check the spread pattern of the thermal paste. A good uniform spread points to a good contact between the block and the GPU. Did you do this check or not?

One more thing:
From the screen shot in the OP, I notice that for GPU1, the temp is 86C while the fan is only at 50%. I wonder why the fan spins so slow at such a high temp?
I suggest you to setup a custom fan profile to speed up the fan.
And, do this for both cards.

Last thing: I scan through your PC build log as well. Very nice! Once you get this thermal issue sorted out, it will be awesome.

Thanks for the suggestions. It appears that everything you guys are saying is going to lead me to taking it apart. This just sucks.

The only thing I can think of is the thermal paste but would that really raise the temperature by over 60C? I mean the only other alternative is that I do some more shaking because water isn't fully in there yet. But if it's not in there by now, there would be something wrong with it getting in there to begin with.

The GPU is installed and the waterblock is UNDER each of the GPUs. The tubing goes through the TOP RIGHT hole in the parallel and then out the BOTTOM SIDE hole. I didn't know if those are designed as inlet/outlet so I just put them where it was most convenient. Here's a shot.

I don't really want to take this all apart just because it "might" be that problem so I'm hesitant but obviously it can't be anything else.

Does anyone know? Please help.
