Perhaps this has been asked several times already but when will there be nickel backplates for Titan X (Pascal). Currently there is only one to buy - black.

Reality Check:

I've finished my EK custom loop cooling the following components: 4.6ghz 1.376Vcore delidded 3770k with gelid TIM and a single 1503mhz 980ti classified. 

Using a Xe480 in pull and Xe240 in push, both with Vardar 1850rpm fans, I'm getting ambient temperature of ~33C, idle water temperature of ~31C, CPU heats up to 73C under 2 hours of P95 and the classy gets up to 53C when I bench with firestrike ultra.

 

Any way to further improve my temperatures or am I expecting too much for my current clocks and setup?

 

Edit: both rads are intakes, a corsair AF120 at the back as exhaust

Yea, that hot air is just sitting inside the case and not going anywhere. A single 120mm could never push out all the hot air coming off the rads. At least set the 240 as an exhaust. Won't help your CPU temps much though cuz p95 is made to CRUSH temps. Use something more realistic and youll see WAY beter temps. Also i hope youre not using a TIM between the die and IHS, that should be CLU or intel TIM only. All other TIMs dont last long at all on the die.

We don't plan on doing a block for the 1080 Turbo so it's fairly safe to say that we won't make one for the 1070 variant. Sorry.

That's a pretty high ambient, and how are you getting water temp below ambient with just passive rads and fans?

Also, what is your fan curve?

Okay, that's alright, thanks for the reply. At least those are coming. I really like the mirrorish reflection of the nickel backplate.

If it makes a difference, they hold up nicely after 12months as well thumb.gif


I cleaned them with some windex, paper and cloth towels.

If your ambient is around 31 - 33 C, then those numbers seem right. What doesn't seem right is why you don't own an air conditioner.

Note, ambient temp should be whatever the temp on your thermostat in the room your PC is in. So if you have an ambient of 31 C that means the temp inside your house is almost 90 degrees F


Now if as I suspect, your coolant is reaching 33 C under full load, then the only way to really improve those numbers would be to try re-seating the blocks, may have applied too much TIM or have your blocks not seated evenly. Those numbers don't seem too out of line though. The GPU is a bit high though, not by much though. If it really is 90 degrees in your house then those numbers on your GPU are right as rain and your CPU numbers are actually really good.
