    AIO water cooling gtx 980 ti

    first card is sucking hot air from bottom card. 75C is well within limit, stock card and titan both do 84. If you want to lower the temps you can do 3 things: modify fan profile in afterburner, add extra fan to the cards or you can water-cool them. Custom loop would be most effective but expansive.

    That PSU only has 4pcie cables right? I guess you will have to open the plastic case to see if the capacitor is really damaged EDIT: found this, read last paragraph, those capacitors are for ripple suspension http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story3&reid=177

    Surviving until Zen / Skylake - Getting the most out of my FX 8350

    I would be totally Ok with that. Only issue with the cooler is that I dont have AMD mounting. I sent it for RMA with it and they send me a new unit without it... I also have a lot of custom loop parts (like 2 full sets) You are not working for MOL are you?
