    The thing is I have to drain the loop and fire up the system without pump then. I seen people doing this on YT. The rig probably survives 20-30 seconds like this just to test it without riser cable. Thanks will report back when I done it You mean error 43 code? Because I struggle with a desktop :)

    It looks like he advertised his equipment on youtube a week ago so maybe he is quitting from this whole vga repair business. I found an email address so I send a question anyway. Thanks again.

    Error Code 43 on GTX 980ti Kingpin

    Im back again, Tried every official vbios has been sent to me here. Managed to update all 3 on the card but error code 43 still remains in device manager.

    Thank you very much for your help sir! So now I have 3 different Bios and 3 different Nvflash to play with :) Does it matter which ones I try first or should I just keep trying until it get fixed?

Standard, OC and LN2 I went...
