My tubing is relatively small diameter (10/13mm) EK Duraclear. I didn't consider kink-coil since it's my first loop, but kink-coil is so 15 years ago. I was able to address the issue by connecting the pump inlet directly to the radiator with a fitting (see pic in sig). Also, my setup is 2 D5 pumps in series. Perhaps a dual D5 behaves differently.

Anyway, that's just my experience with my first and only build. Do what you want with it.

As has been stated, the blue side is a colored film. When I apply my strips, I pull the clear side off and apply to block. I leave the other side alone until I am ready to mount. I pull all the blue film from each piece it covers and mount my block. This way helps ensure that all film is removed before installing components. Both sides of the strips are sticky. So I suggest double checking if you have removed even if you're "certain". thumb.gif

I hope this information makes it back to EK so they can inform the end user in the instruction sheets they include with every block they sell. cheers.gif

Thanks, that the one I used.

Tension?

Anyway, if lapping is out then so is liquid metal TIM.

AMD what?

45nm Phenom? 28nm APUs? 32nm FX chips? 14nm Ryzen?

Those are all different dies.

What, specifically, makes these recommended for what specific AMD parts?

For all of em, just because of the heatspreader design would be my guess, and maybe the fact that pretty much all the ryzen and fx series are soldered.

Tension?

Anyway, if lapping is out then so is liquid metal TIM.

When you apply the screws on the block containing.the jetplate to seal the block it applies tension to stiffen the unit. When stiff the base surface flattens. That's why it's not recommended to lapping the cooling surface.

Liquid metal is still a viable option.for cooling but I wouldn't recommend it based on how copper reacts to it when heat is applied. It's fine for Nickel plate but it fills the microscopic valleys in the surface of the metal.

Not sure what fittings you plan on using but I have no issues using ek acf fittings. Takes quite a bit of force to pull the zmt out.

That being said, as happy as I am with the ZMT, I'm thinking of moving to clear to add a bit of color to the rig.

I am considering EK ACF as well, with a 10/16 tubing size.

Since it's my first loop, i guess I'll go with clear, so I can see the liquid, bubbles, etc... biggrin.gif
