The problem with MC is you pay tax so that offsets any convenience of buying it in person unless the buyer can care less.

Its close, but it slides right on. There's no way the Nvidia HB bridge would fit w/o modification though.

HI,

I've been lurking for years, and thought I'd get some advice. I just added the nickle plated full cover ek rx 480 reference block to my loop and I'm getting hot temps. Undervolted and running stock speeds I'm hitting 80 in Firestrike extreme. My VRMS are fine in the 35 to 40 degree range. I built the rig back in 2014. My delid 4790 is running 4.9GHz at 1.385 volts and is stable in prime95 small at around 79 or 80 degrees. I can run 5GHz on it at 1.45 volts, but it's not prime95 stable for more than a few hours and I'm not comfortable doing more than short term benching at that voltage. I'm using almost 200 watts on the processor at those settings. I hit 80 degrees on my newish rx 480 while only using about 107 watts in firestrike extreme. I have 3 rads and a D5 set to 5. Rads: Black Ice Nemesis 420GTS XFLOW , XS-PC AX360, and a Coolgate G2 "Puncture-proof" Dual 120mm. The rx 480 is using the EK-FC RX-480 - Nickel block. The cpu is using a raystorm. I had some plasticizer gunk in my raystorm and rads from some crappy xspc tubing I'd used. took the block apart and cleaned it with ketchup, and ran 10% vinager through the fittings and rads followed by some baking soda solution and then 10 1 gallon distilled water rinse/drain cycles to ensure the loop was clean. The tubing has been replaced. I'm running distilled with a silver coil. No additives or dyes. The temps and voltages I listed for me CPU are after the cleaning so I'm within a degree or two of when things were new. The first component after my pump is the videocard, and I got some POM bits from over tightening a fitting on my pump stuck in my block. Maybe three or four tiny pieces are in there. This is a possible culprit, but I had way worse in my raystorm previously and temps weren't this far off. I've heard of trouble getting gaskets back on ek full cover blocks and don't really want to ruin anything so I'm wary of cleaning the POM bits.

When I installed the block, I had to take it back off once and add tiny plastic washers to the back bracket screws because it was just a hair off. In doing so, the standoffs stayed with the card. I removed the standoffs from the card and replaced them on the block. When I tightened them, I didn't over torque them. I just turned them until they were tight. Maybe that's created extra distance between the block and the GPU?

I also used GELID GC-extreme on the GPU and applied it using the old school credit card method rather than the chickpea, or rice or EK's cross methods. Perhaps a crappy TIM application is to blame? I have some of EK's TIM I could try. I also have a couple of syringes of Cool Laboratory's Liquid Ultra. My other TIMS I have on hand are Noctua NH1, old school Arctic Silver 5, and XS-PC paste. advice?

Oh. One other question. I added a little gc-extreme to my thermal pads on my ram and VRMs. could that be causing extra distance between the gpu and the block? I wouldn't think so.

Any other ideas?

Reapply TIM 1st and foremost to see if the problem persists. Then report back.

I'll try that tomorrow or Wed. My father's in the hospital and time is at a premium. I'll also try tightening the standoffs/screw holes that came off the card last time. They'll probably come off again. I'm leaning toward a liberal application of liquid ultra as there's normally only a 1 or 2 degree difference between liberal and just right on that, and it might make up the difference if there is too much distance. I'll tape around the GPU of course. I don't know. I might just use the EK paste in their recommended cross pattern. thoughts?

Edit: I've never used liquid ultra on a gpu before. I've only used on my CPU. Anything I should know?

How about you just us the Ek Therm before you slap liquid ultra on there?

Hi Crew,

Received a new EK-XTop Revo Clear Plexi D5 top today for a new build. The retention ring will NOT tighten the top to the pump. Only screws on 1.5 turns and then stops. That is not enough, as the pump is loose.

Dont want to force it. Out of ideas.

Sick of buying pieces, which are hard to get here in Australia and they dont work. I only have 4 more days left of holidays and my build has come to a grinding holt. ***.

Purchased 2 new 980GTX Nickel blocks (EK) as well. Both blocks needed the standoffs tightened, otherwise the block was not making contact with the memory and thermal pad. Sigh.

Easy fix, typical problem. They are an absolute PAIN to get on straight and correct from the first place.

Honestly, tighten it on and off a few times WITHOUT the pump to make sure the threads arent messed up. Youll see that unless you get it perfectly straight and catch the right threads it wont even screw on without the pump. Both my ek bay res and ek d5 140mm reservoir have the same issue.
