    Hello! Well, first of all I forgot to take temps before adding the block. Needless to say the North Bridge ran hot. With my O/C'd settings it would sit around 50c at idle. So anyways, here are the results:

    Very nice man! It does show that watercooling can help your clocking so much better!

    It looks sweet the EK block. Making me wish to find a board with full water cooling now! :toast:

    Temps are nice across the board though:

    did you clean out the block first before adding it to the loop?? like take it apart check for shavings etc?? I had a ticking noice is my D5 after I put my 4890 blocks on the loop and upong inspection of the pump it was copper shavings for the EK fc GPU blocks.

    Yes, definitely I flushed it first. I took the pump apart as well after hearing the ticking and it seems to be the bearing for sure. It's nothing very serious yet, but as bearings go it will get nothing but worse. Once I get the new pump, I'll completely disassemble this pump and refurbish it. I plan on water cooling either these video cards or the next ones in a separate loop. :toast:
