It's on the side atm, I need to lower my case even with the tote, the gpu is about 2 feet higher. Plus the 20 feet of tubing is a bit much for my 15$ pump. However the water feels nice and cold coming from the waterblock.

I remounted my GPU with some wingnuts and tie downs, actively watching my tj max evening out the load, it's a work in progress. The GPU temp never goes above 60c, rarely above 55c,normally below 50c. Ambient 28-30c. I managed 9004 on a TimeSpy graphical score.

My memory\vram\pcb are still hot as hell, I'm working on it. My waterblock is just a little to big to mount with the stock gpu plate\blower as a hybrid air\water cooler. I need bend or cut the stock plate. But it's pretty thick and I want the thermal pads to line up. I did a little bit of gaming 2025 core 965 ram 60 max power without any problems.

Maybe it just needs a rubber ducky

lol 40 gallons vs a bag of ice ^^, eventually eeeeventually. Maybe I'll buy one of those bricks. (yes I know condensation etc)

mm looks like I have some filing to do!

49 fps in shadow of the tomb on 4k not to shabby, upscaled with DSR, still on a 1080p monitor, 45-54 fps, average probably 47 fps so far, My GPU won't go above 56c despite my mouse vigorous mouse wiggling.

Here is 1080p vs 4k, AMD drivers can be wacky at limiting FPS in some games, without wattman no crashes though. RIS is likely not on. mm FPS isn't showing in screens, least of my worries atm. I'm scared to load wattman it might start coming back on with windows.

Edit well it crashed after about 30 min, probably the mem

Radeon 5700 Reference 50 Gallon Open Water Loop and Blower Non XT Break Down Disassembly

BREAKDOWN Gamer Nexus and Igor show us the XT, here are some non XT pics. And the small differences I noticed along the way.

1. On opening the Non XT, there are also 6 screws on sides.

2. (4th pick down tiny circles atm) It looks like they included some thermal pads that do not seemingly match\touch any components. At least one extra pad exists in a spot where the XT has a extra memory chip? Not 100% on the terminology. I circled in green the extra memory chip thermal pad in green. The red circle is just kind of a random tiny thermal pad, idk why it's there or if it makes contact.

So next we have the removal of the Vapor Chamber\Heatsink. Just like GamerNexus, I used a screw driver. I found a convenient spot on the back with a gap in it. However it did result in a slightly bent chamber. Note that the heat sink fins can be easily bent if you squeeze them or knick em with your screw driver.

50 GALLON TOTE CPU WATER BLOCK ON GPU (Yes I know tap water is bad, my water block is only 20$ and can be cleaned will monitor, this is for fun)

So far I zipped up my CPU water block, quite literally and put some old CPU fans on the rest of the card. I still have some thermal pads to take off. The holes on the video card are to small for the bolts that came with the water block and of course they don't exactly line up. My mounting pressure might be a bit uneven, but it works for now. Regardless this is my rough draft. Will update with way more info later. But I can safely say after 8 hours of benchmarking\browsing\tinkering the water has not changed temp. I'll likely incorporate the video card plate and maybe the vapor chamber at some point. It's only about 40 gal atm. Pumps maybe .5 gpm, that will improve. No that's not a quarter it's a cd at the bottom of that tote . Day 1 bench,
