  1. I have all hard tubing in the upper side of the case, but would turning off one pump while the other one runs have a similar effect of blocking the waterflow out of the reservoir causing liquid to back up?
  2. Thats what I thought, but I checked the manual and its correct, plus before this upgrade I had the exact same monoblock in black and my tubing inlet was the same. I cant really tip over my computer as its all acryllic, it would either break my desk or crack something inside (weighs over 100 pounds). Im thinking of trying to just leave my fill hole open to allow air to exit.
  3. After much headache I finally got my new pc done however for some reason my monoblocks vrm channel isnt filling up as it should. I noticed that if I raise my resirvoir water level the monoblock fills up slightly more however not enough to cycle water over the vrm. Can anyone tell me if this is due to air trapped, or my loop just doesnt have enough water pressure? In my setup I am running 3 360 radiators and 1 480 radiator with 2 d5 pumps set to speed 3.5/5 (cant do over 4 or the pumps rub against my mounting and brick the moter)
  4. Thinking about upgrading to a 3175X from my 7980XE but decided not to due to the cost of the CPU. However I keep seeing these chips listed and they seem to be identical to the retail version that costs $3000, so are there any real drawbacks to buying a CPU like this? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-Xeon-W-3175X-CPU-ES-Version-26-Cores-52-Threads-1-8GHz-3-2GHz-OC-OK/113838711719?hash=item1a8150e3a7:g:YU8AAOSw-jVdMhGZ
  5. Thanks, I assumed so about the clock speed I'm not too worried about that as my 3333 kit easily overclocks to 3600 so I think a 3200 could do 3333 at least easily. I was mainly worried about the ram modules being the same being as my kit was discontinued but I assume G Skill uses the same circuit board with different binned ram chips.
  6. I haven't updated my profile in a while im running a 7980XE in my system right now. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/MCV6Mp
  7. https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-64gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232566 https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-64gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232569?Item=N82E16820232569 Would I have trouble running these two 64gb kits together in one system? I already have the 3333 set but I think my sku got discontinued as I only see 3200 and 3400+ speed kits available. Thanks
  8. If my GPU has a usb c output, and I used a usb c to displayport adapter would I be able to run 165hz gsync? Thanks
  9. I keep having an issue where for the last six months or so nearly every game I play has a windows audio/media overlay that pops up every time I adjust volume or play/skip a track. This is extremely annoying as every time it pops up the game I'm playing will stutter, freeze or drop frames. I have tried doing the obvious which is disabling the overlay in apps such as Spotify, however the volume bar still comes up and the same issue stands. I have tried reinstalling Windows several times however this only fixes the problem for a couple restarts before it's back to the way it was. If anyone knows how to disable this from popping up when your in fullscreen that would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
  10. So I run a Nvidia surround setup with SLI and for the last 4 months half the games I play take a 40-50% performance hit and stutter like crazy. I use spotify to listen to music while I game and normally on the desktop and while in windowed mode if you adjust the volume or play next track you get a little window on the top left of your screen showing what you are listening to. This never used to happen while in fullscreen however for some reason some games now show it in fullscreen and all those that do suffer huge performance hits and wonky frame timings sort of like a game that has a very bad sli profile. I tried reinstalling windows a few times and each time I do everything works perfectly fine spofitfy included and then after a few restarts its back to the same issue. I have tried closing apps and reinstalling drivers however im starting to think that it's some kind of windows setting that gets triggered during an update. Does anyone know how to get rid of this window while in fullscreen? Any help is appreciated thanks. Edit: another sign of this issue is that affected games cannot tolerate changing display settings such as going from windowed to fullscreen or vice versa the app will just instantly crash with no error message.
  11. I tried that but as you can see Fortnite still pins all four cards at 100% with the performance equal to or less than a single card. https://imgur.com/a/ExYhF
  12. The monitors are 165hz gsync, they can't be run off of a hub. I already have both my cards watercooled, not looking to go through a hardware swap, is there no software work around to force unreal engine 4 to bypass SLI?
  13. I recently built a surround setup using three pg279q monitors and powered by 1080 ti sli however whenever I play a unreal engine title such as fortnite, both gpus get pinned to 100% I get terrible performance and the game crashes after 5-10 minutes. Disabling SLI is not an option because each 1080 TI only has 2 display port outputs so I can't power all three monitors without also disabling surround which defeats the purpose of this setup. I have tried disabling SLI through nvidia inspector however that along with changing the rendering mode does absolutely nothing, I have also reinstalled my drivers multiple times.
  14. I'm looking for a waterblock that supports a 4 way terminal. The only one I found was this Bykski block which on top of being form a sketchy brand does not seem to offer any terminals for multi card installation. Is there any other block for this card that supports terminals, or has anyone attempted to fit a bitspower or EK terminal on this waterblock? Thanks https://www.ebay.com/itm/Bykski-RGB-VGA-GPU-Water-Cooling-Block-For-EVGA-GTX1080Ti-KINGPIN/183126052700?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3Db493f02c4aa54c4ba72dd8c49462f257%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D292486374118%26itm%3D183126052700&_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042

    Well at stock it's much lower but mine are maxed in voltage. If you try to max out a 1080 ti or titan on a custom block it will hit 50c. The reason the temps are higher is because the vapor chamber makes direct contact with the GPU just like a founders card and the waterblock vools the vapor chamber instead of a heatsink. The fans help by 1-2c.
