It'll have allllll the things.

@Derickwm what is the best way or what do i use to hold the gaskets in place on a FC bridge before i tighten it down.Thanks thumb.gif

This is your best for anything having to do with o-rings. I also believe I made a video that's posted on the EK YT page.

A dab of silicone grease will keep them in place. I've been using grease for a few years now and helps a ton holding the o-rings in place. You can find silicone grease in the plumbing section of your local hardware store. I haven't seen any issues and they include grease with my replacement filters for my drinking water filtration system. So, if its safe for drinking water, no worries w/ wc puters imho smile.gif

But, drinking water isn't the best for WC puters, and mammals shouldn't drink DISTILLED water/DI water as it can leech nutrients from them........

Just food for thought. smile.gif

I've been out of the tech world for a while with a motherboard RMA and moving into my new home

just got my motherboard back now and it's ready to install back into my system, but I'm taking the chance now while everything's apart to pull the trigger on watercooling (first time)

but where did all the EK GTX Titan full pcb-covered blocks go?

are they all replaced by the part# ex-blc-1596 ???
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/22311/ex-blc-1596/EK_GeForce_780_GTX_Ti_VGA_Liquid_Cooling_Block_-_Nickel_CSQ_EK-FC780_GTX_Ti_-_Nickel_Original_CSQ.html?tl=g30c311s1996&id=WpWDuf22&mv_pc=4588#blank

and if so I have to live with my titans being labeled as 780 Ti's on the blocks? frown.gif

Yes, EK-FC Titan was replaced by EK-FC Titan SE (when 780s were released) and shortly after those were replaced with the EK-FC 780 Ti blocks to ensure compatibility with all 3 cards.

Not saying filtered tap water for pc water cooling wink.gif. Just pointing out that silicone grease is used for general plumbing. Filters usually consist of plastics or silicone where the grease is applied are safe since they include small packs of this. If its safe for these applications, I see no harm in applying it to the most common w/c parts. I've heard a few arguments against using grease but I have had no issues.


As far as drinking pure di water (sans minerals), my advise, when it comes to your health, if you're not sure, ask your doc wink.gif. I know its used a lot for certain medical applications (and also alcohol tongue.gif). Though its interesting you say di will cannibalize nutrients from the body? interesting, I'll have to look into since I'm curious now biggrin.gif

Yes it actually will as the water does not want to be pure it wants impurities in it. So it will absorb minerals from you or anything...
