  1. Thanks I'll look that up, do you have any link for those heats sinks, either I can't find any or I'm just not using the right search
  2. Just to be clear you mean the memory on the gpu as well as the vrm's? Just trying to see if I can find a cheaper alternative than a £100+ waterblock.
  3. Hi guys another day another question, this time I'm considering aio cooling my gpu (gigabyte 1080 G1) and I happen to have a spare cooler master master liquid 120 lite. If I can use the brackets/find a way to mount it etc. Would the vrm's be OK exposed? My case it a custom desk build with x2 120mm intakes and x3 120mm outtakes, so air flow is good. P. S whilst on the subject does anyone know of a front plate as such that would cover the front side of the pcb leaving gaps for the chips and vrm etc? Thanks in advance EDIT For example JayzTwoCents says in this video at 02:00 you can have them exposed! Does he mean exposed with air flow from the pc case itself or exposed with a fan blowing directly on it like the Kraken G12 thing?
  4. Ok cool, thanks, but whilst I wait for more Coolent do you think it will be OK using JUST distilled water, no biocide etc, until new Coolent arrives?
  5. Hi guys quick question I'm hoping this will be a quick easy one. I just wanna clear a couple off things up for peace of mind. I am going to be flushing my system for the first time, as it has turned a tint of yellow within a few months. I believe this to be because I did not flush the system adequately on first install and somthing has leached from the soft tubing. I used XSPC uv clear fluid, I have another bottle on the way and I was wondering if I can get away with using distilled water for a few days without a kill coil? This is my pump/res XSPC Photon 270 Tube Reservoir with D5 Vario Pump V2 SATA https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B074G47CYK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_sSqEDbD334WV4 Now I have read a bunch of stuff saying distilled is all I need, but I don't think I can actually get a kill coil in this and if I did I wouldn't get it back out again as it looks like a sealed unit. Thanks in advance.
  6. SOLVED After everything the only way I was able to fix this GPU issue was with a complete whipe of the system and reinstall. Not ideal at all and still didn't find out what caused the issue. But its fixed!
  7. Nope that wasn't the issue for me, still stuttering, btw I don't know if I may be getting stuttering mixed up with lag. On Forza it looks like lag on AC looks like stuttering.
  8. I've just stumbled across somthing else, can some tell me about this, should I do what it recommendeds in screen? Should a gpu run x16?
  9. Could this be the problem, Desktop Window Manger? From what I've read so far it's responsable for managing devices like cpu and gpu etc, could be making my gpu work to hard freeing up the CPU to much?
  10. I don't think freesync is the issue as it has been on, its somthing that is forcing all my gpu to 100% in all game, this what ever it is, is causing the stutter. I opened a thread on Nvidia forums as well. https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1109125/geforce-drivers/all-games-constant-stuttering-fix-needed-/2/?offset=34#6044961 You can see all the steps I've taken, even a window 10 reinstall. I don't know what to do now. Some people have suggested remover usb wired or wireless devices, but I don't see how any of my peripherals would force my GPU to 100% in games all the time.
  11. This issue is still unresolved, at this point I think I may aswell bang my head off a brick wall lol
  12. It's not optimal 100%, I feel like somthing is forcing it to that level, as you all can see, usage should not be 100% on low settings.
