(Water would backflow into the rad and res on pump power off and the rad-res tube would be empty and the gpu-rad tube half empty) Water temp monitoring is something I need to figure out, infrared temp gauge is much less convenient than checking a screen. Saturating the loop with heat results in the external tube temp being 98F (36.6C) which should put the water temp around the 40C mark.
I'm definitely working on the temps with GPU still, as high as they seem, they're improved over the EVGA AIO solution that was originally on the card.

Hi Skupples, I have it set to an additional 1300mhz on memory in Precision X1.

Not sold on the vertical GPU mount 100% myself, but wanted to give it a shot to "fill out" the case. This is my first ATX build in seven years and it just felt... empty. (And why I still run a SFX power supply in an ATX case... Corsair SF600 Platinum)
Attached a screen grab of X1 after 30 mins of playing Far Cry New Dawn for a non-synthetic measurement. I was running fans at ~1100rpm and the pump at 70% PWM which was between 2900 and 3100 rpms. I still think I may need to reseat the block again, but on the otherhand, this can ran 70C with the EVGA pump unit at 100% pwm duty and the same Noctua NF-12 Chromax running at ~1300rpm. (But with MUCH less noise. I can hear my coil whine again!)
