It's probably becuase of the extra load on your PCI-E bus,

I'd probably have a look and increase that to 103Mhz. If it's not that then it could be the added load on your PSU. What make and model is it and we can check the ripple etc etc.

Were your 260s underwater also, I assume so but just gotta ask?

I would try redoing the TIM. What are you using for TIM anyways?

Your post isn't clear. Are you saying you can't hit 4.3 because your temps went through the roof or the system isn't stable? Sounds like either power issue or water loop can't handle the extra thermal load.

Try yanking one of the 480's (leave it in the loop just pull it from your mobo and pull the power cables) see if that help. If you can get stable put the power back on but don't plug it into your mobo. If you can't get back to 4.3 your PS can't keep up with demand. If you can get stable, then might be the OC on your PCI lanes.

Just a thought without having to tear down your whole loop.

i'm saying I havent gotten to 4.2ghz yet because I have had to start over on my oc. and it seems its more sensitive to the oc settings now

i'm at 3.86 100% stable now

its just taking alot more tweaking to get back there than it did before I installed the 480's

i'm sure its something with the pcie bus

its just taking me some time to find the write settings for everything now
