  1. Attached screenshot is what I'm seeing for voltages during stress test. VCORE says it's hanging around 1.256 with a peak of 1.312 I've seen it hit 1.328 as well after taking the screenshot. Guess I'll try and see what others are running for VCORE and what their temps are for this processor. Also, an observation: My office is a bit cooler now in terms of ambient temperature, and the water temp is now 24c vs 27c and the CPU temp is hanging out at a more reasonable ~73c - 75c. Room temp is 64f degrees vs it must have been around 74f in here when I was testing earlier Maybe this is all normal, I guess just the vast difference in temp between my GPU and CPU makes me wonder if something is off with the block or something. *shrug*
  2. Correct, 3700x - just running it stock. No overclocking or messing with the voltages at this time.
  3. The water sensor is down at the bottom of the distro plate, you can kind of see it in the picture inbetween where the radiator goes back into the distro plate and then the inlet for the pump.
  4. I recently finished my new build with a custom loop (I'll attach a pic so you can see the loop) and it runs Distro > GPU > CPU > RAD > RAD > Distro. My water temperature sensor is at the bottom of the distro-plate. I've been watching temps and noticed that my CPU seems to run a bit hot. In gaming it's not too bad, so perhaps it doesn't matter but thought I'd explore a bit so I started running Aida64 stress test on CPU/GPU. During the stress test, the temps seem to shake out like this: CPU immediately spikes to ~70c then climbs gradually to ~80c Water temp reported as 28c and seems to stay there GPU/CPU running 100% GPU steady around ~50c CPU steady around ~80c Water temp says 27c Because of the way the CPU temp seems so much higher than the GPU in the loop (granted, the GPU is BEFORE the CPU and after two radiators in the loop so maybe it makes sense) that perhaps I need to re-seat the CPU block or something, although I feel pretty confident the paste and seating is fairly solid but we all make mistakes. Very possible I could be nitpicking here too as again, during gaming it seems relatively fine with CPU temp closer to the 60c mark. Idle temps are typically under 40c
  5. Mighty fine thanks to several on these forums for tips and tricks to help get through my conversion from soft loop to a rigid loop, as well as some hardware weirdness I was troubleshooting. I decided it was time for a change, so I retired my old Corsair 900D and Intel i7 5820K for some new hardware, keeping pretty much only my GPU and PSU from my old rig. Motherboard: ASUS STRIX x570-E Gaming CPU: Ryzen 3700x GPU: ASUS RTX 2080 Ti STRIX RAM: G.Skill Trident Z Neo SSD: 2x 1TB PCI 4.0 NVME M.2 I had some issues with the installation of the new EKWB Vector Strix back-plate on my card. I discovered through trial, error, and luck that the GPU plate was shorting out the card. I may have missed it in instructions somewhere, but putting plastic washers between the back-plate and the GPU solved the issue, and didn't impact contact with the GPU at all. Phew. The rigid tubing was actually pretty painless.... just tedious really. I imagine the use of 90 fittings and using the distro plate made things a tad easier. I did get to try one 90 degree bend though where I couldn't fit both fittings on the tube because the distance was so small. Might revisit that one in the future to see if I can get a smaller fitting on there. Overall I'm pretty pleased and thrilled with the way the rigid tubing came out. Had always wanted to do try it out and I could not be happier.
  6. Hello, what I ordered was Bykski 10mm ID x 14mm OD Rigid Acrylic Tube and 14mm OD fittings from the Bykski store. This should go together correct?
  7. Awesome, thanks for the info. I think I'm getting the hang of it now. Fingertips aren't really enjoying the process though!
  8. I just really cranked down on the collars and tightened them up pretty good, and it seems to be holding a lot better and pressure is staying steady. Perhaps I was a little apprehensive about how tight to tighten those collars at first. Fingers crossed!
  9. So, I'm using Bykski fittings. They come with two O-Rings that are not already on/in the fitting. One is bigger and looks like the size of the O-Rings that are inside the fitting already. The other is a smaller, slightly thicker one, that looks like the size of the O-Ring already on the fitting with the part that screws into the block. I'm using the larger O-Ring on the tube, before the collar that I screw down. Maybe I should try the slightly smaller but thicker O-Ring for that?
  10. So, I'm doing my first ever rigid tubing setup for water-cooling, and I completed the CPU run to/from the CPU to the Distro Plate in my case. That is the ONLY run I have, so I thought maybe I should test it to see if it's OK. When I pump up the leak tester into the green area on the gauge, it drops slightly then POP the tube pops out of a fitting. This happened more than once. My question is, is the pressure too much for such a small loop? Again, this is only the CPU loop I'm testing. The O-Rings are in the proper place on the fittings and everything is pushed in as far as it will go. I'll attach a pic of the CPU loop run that I'm testing. IMG_0479.HEIC
  11. Well, I think it may be the card after all. I put my old motherboard and stuff back together so I could test it out, and I'm not getting a signal in that machine either... so what kind of happened was, I had my card in my new rig and there was an issue with the water flow and I think the loop was getting airlocked. The GPU overheated a few times and lost signal, but it always worked again after it cooled off. I'm wondering if the last time it overheated it was the final straw... Guess I need to run out and grab a cheap GPU to see what the deal is. The fact I'm not getting a video signal to work on either motherboard leads me to believe something is hosed with the card.
  12. Asus Support seems to think I should RMA it. I'm within the return window for Newegg so I might just send it back and hope a replacement works better.
  13. All I recall doing was updating the BIOS. I did get a message once about enabling or disabling CSM because it didn't recognize the GPU or something... but I can't even get it to display the POST screen or BIOS to check that setting. The card had been working fine for some time, only had this issue come up when I moved hardware over onto this new board. Even on this board it was working through about a dozen or so reboots but this last time it just doesn't seem to like something.
  14. Corsair Hx1000i Just tried unplugging and reconnecting the PCI-E cables and no luck.
