My CPU has seen 71C under LinX after 3 hours of Furmark with my Crossfire 6870s first. It took the CPU 1 hour to get there at that. You'll never see the temps Prime95, LinX or Furmark does while gaming, so you'll be fine, more so with an extra 120 rad. I do run Koolance 120mm 2000RPM fans on bios control from the CPU header on my motherboard via a SunBeamtech 6 channel fan controller, which works very well IMO.

Right now im using 4 AP-15's in push on the rads, And today my CPU hasn't gone past 53c on the hottest core. Thats playing Test drive unlimated 2, WOW, And GTA4 all day and converting a video for my ipod biggrin.gif I think your right that the 6990 in the loop will be fine. Another 6970 or 6990 will start to push it, But ill deal with that when I get there cool.gif Thanks

At worst, if you have the stock XPSC X20 750 pump, you may want to switch out to a DDC or D5 pump if the flow drops off too much. XSPC makes the same style dual 5.25 bay reservoir, so you can use those pumps in the same configuration.

Yea im running the stock X20 750. It should be ok with the 6990 in the loop, But I think its going to be about it's max. Are you talking about this kind of setup? http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...?tl=g30c97s168 Or is there another setup? Im still new to water cooling Thanks for the info

Yeah, that's the D5 (MCP655)style reservoir and there's the DDC (MCP350/MCP355) style like I run.

There's a seller here on OCN in the for sale threads that sells DDC-1 pumps for $35 shipped (BMaverick). They are the black impeller 10watt OEM versions.

Thanks for the info. I think im going with the XSPC Reservoir with a MCP655 pump w/ Speed Control, But thats later It's going to be nice not having the fan noise from the 6990, But its not much louder then my 3 5770's I had before. Now I just need to see if theres a water block for my 9800GT. The fan on it runs @35% and can't be turned down It's the loudest thing in my case at idle, And it only gets up to 48c when overclocked.

Tri fire's back!! picked up my replacement HD6970 today



Some Heaven runs, default settings, 5908x1080 res, both cards @ 930/1375;

Just 6990



6990 + 6970





Everything working fine so having second thoughts about installing the Koolance block on the 6970 when it comes back... thats what caused all the trouble in the first place... might just sell it... max OC temps on the 6970 are mid 70's anyway, theres nothing wrong with that. and its not nearly as noisy as the stock 6990 fan... what do you guys think?


I feel like im getting lower FPS in mafia 2 than i was before with just the 6990...

I think thats how im going to run my 6990 underwater, and the 6970 on air unless I really need to cool it down But something tells me it will go under water at some point

from Koolance re my RMA -

'We will replace it with a new one, but we think you may have the same issue as this block looks normal.

Sometimes reference layout video card modules have different heights (up to 0.5mm) that make enough difference to get a poor connection.'

I dont think thats true since all the thermal pads had impressions on them when I took the block off.
