kicurry I have installed both a Eiswolf and a byksy on two cards. No issues , both run very cool. The Eiswolf runs cooler with pc case on it's side by 8 degrees. I always install the block then test in system without water connected to be sure it boots. then install rest of water system.

Yeah i really don't know. Cant say something short'd. The installation is pretty straight forward. Have done it many times. I also did take the time. So no rushing etc..
The only thing i have done after installation is moding the PowerPlay tables as usual. Applied some OC and ran some benchmarks. OC was not stable so got some crashes. After few crashes windows didnt want to boot normal anymore. Card was still working. It was already late in the midnight so i left it for the next day. But the next day the card was killed and didn't start anymore.

Maybe the card was already dying but happened on the wrong moment

I have a Radeon VII that i also grabbed an ek water block for when they came out. It has improved my user experience tremendously. The fans on the stock cooler are horribly loud at anything above 50% speed. It also seemed to crash far less while overclocking to similar temperatures. Though some driver updates came out the day I installed the water block, and i wasn't sure if it was being more reliable with lower temperatures or because AMD improved the drivers. To run stable i go with 1900mhz 1025mv, and 1100mhz on the memory.
i've been playing around with 2000mhz core clock, 1072mv, and 1100mhz on the memory. I seem to get through my benchmarks and stress tests just fine. Play for a day or two, and wake up to wattman resetting to default. I've got plenty of room to keep bumping the voltage up slowly, but I still kind of wonder if it's the drivers screwing with me.

EDIT: Serave, if you're not using AMD Wattman be sure to never open it. It will interfere with afterburner and other OC software.
Sure, i always monitor everything. And particularly after modding/OC etc!
I have used Kryonaut as usual. Temps where perfect!

Anyways, it was a bad card or like you suggest a bad mount and the DIE cracked. Maybe i forced to much and there was to much pressure!

I got a new one from RMA. New card is performing better on stock. Hopefully i will install the block soon. On stock i can get easily 2150mhz!

I reinstalled the stock cooler and sent it back for RMA. Few days later i got my new VII. Now few months later i still have not installed the block.
I have installed maybe 20+ VGAs in a CL but never had any fail. So im still afraid something happens again. Dunno it was the card or it was me this time



Agree! totally shat!

Is everyone using the AMD software to do their overclocking?
I'm using Afterburner 4.6.1 and so far it works well, all i did was turn down the vcore to 990mv and 1850 target core so nothing much.
