It will not matter. Do whatever is the easiest for you.

In order to get the best flow, I am thinking of redoing my tubes here. What would be the best possible flow on the bridge?

I was thinking of doing top left to bottom right. It wouldn't be too much of a hassle. Would that be best?

Thanks guys...I really hope this is the solution.
I would have...when I saw my cards creeping up past 80c, I stopped...tried again an hour later, same thing, so I did a little troubleshooting and found out I had the bridge connected wrong. (then I sprung a leak and had to re-do my loop) I'm getting a new reservoir soon and have to re-do it again lol

I'm leak testing now.

Could this be a possible sign of good/bad things: the flow sounds a lot quieter than it did before. Before I heard like a squishing sound coming from the CPU. Now I can't hear it anymore.

Here are some pictures of the new routing. Kinda hard to see but it's top left and bottom right. The regular tubes fit perfectly back on without any cutting or extending.







If this doesn't fix it. I just don't know what will. I'm incredibly impatient so I'll be done leak testing within the hour so I can see if this actually fixed anything.

Is the quieter flow normal?

Could it be possible that the CPU block was restricting flow to the GPU?

It is possible, but unlikely it would cause as dramatic a temp increase as you were seeing. Some particulate may have clogged it a bit if your rinse job wasn't thorough, but the only way to know for sure is to take apart the block.

I think you will most likely find you fixed the issue. We are all pulling for ya!

sounds like something do with overheating , your cpu is shutting off ... only other symptom would be a bad power supply but you have 1200w so either ur cpu is getting too hot ( reseat pump ) or ur losing power somewhere .

If not that , as stated the water isnt passing through ur gpu's and they are hitting thermal cutoff .. So your cards dont get damaged the pc switches off .. dw mate ull get it all fixed =)

It could have been pockets of air...or the water freely blasting through the bridge with no flow to the gpu blocks. I think you've go it now though, best of luck!

I have seen a closed loop(cheater H20) system develop air bubbles through the pump and then it stops working.. When this gamer chick had me look at her rig I fixed it in 5min by popping a plug out and adding water.. she said she had been dealing with the computer shutting down randomly for months

Sounds like you will be taking apart your loop and reseating your GPU block. Make sure there aren't thermal pads where there's supposed to be thermal paste etc.

Make sure the block is securely fastened to the card where all contact points are evenly distributed. This looks like a clear and basic case of a bad seat of the block and it happens all the time.

Well I'm not going to complain but right now I'm idling at 29-30C for BOTH cards. I just loaded up TF2 and I got up to a maximum of 37C.

Ambient temperature is between 25-30C so an extra 5C over normal temperature isn't bad I guess.

Is that normal?

Give the loop time to reach equilibrium...the water hasn't been saturated with heat yet.

But it looks like you've got it done.
