  1. So I was playing fallen order and I got to this point and this happens every. Freaken. Time. I'm playing. Things are going well and then it lags like this consistently. Not only does it lag, but it interferes with all of my devices. My Bluetooth headphones disconnect and don't reconnect until I restart my computer. This is sooooo annoying. This has been going on over a week. I just wanna play this game! Snapchat-154154407.mp4
  2. Well thank you guys so much!!!!! It was the heatpads on the transistors. it was the contact problem after all because of the height difference of the thermal pad. Big thanks to -rascal- for figuring out the main problem. This is such a big headache solved. Thank you guys so much.
  3. Ok thanks. And yes I realize I'm a noob haha. I appreciate the help
  4. So should I take my pads off of inductors? Or no
  5. So you think I should take off the thermal pads from the mosfets?
  6. I only put thermal paste on the gpu and hbm2
  7. More thermal paste didn't work. I but 109c while play call of duty
  8. Ok so I took it apart again and there's no freaken way thermal paste or contact is the problem
  9. I did twice. all thermal pads for vrms have the imprints on them. Also the vrm temps are great. They aren't the problem. Also I have now reapplied my thermal paste and I am still running into the same problem.... so thermal paste is not the problem. I think I will try thermal pad next
  10. bykski water block. Single 240 for both.
  11. would a thermal pad help more or no?
  12. So I mounted a water block on my reference vega 64 because I was tired of hearing a blower card all the time. I know this is a problem for a lot of vega owners, especially those who water cool. When I look I my "GPU temperature" they have improved greatly, but the hotspot temperature has gotten much worse. I wondering if any of you have ran into the same issue. I will try taking the block off and on again and remounting with a bit more thermal paste. Does anyone have any more tips for this? My loop keeps getting heat soaked because of this and then my cpu overheats and it's just a mess. Temperatures on my very much underclocked vega reach 106C which is ridiculous.
  13. So I have my loop set up and not getting great temps I know why. Ordered 4 fans that would do a better job than the stock nzxt case fans but they won't get her for a bit. Im curious how you guys have your custom loops setup in your midsize towers. I'm going to attempt something tomorrow, moving the fans from the front of the case to the other side of the rad. I'm thinking the fans will have more room to grab air. this case doesn't have much airflow. the front is solid with ventilation an inch and a half wide down the side and bottom. but dang with that full size graphics card and fitting regular 25mm thick fans is gonna be super tight. I measured and it looks like i might be able to get it to fit. What have you guys who have the same case done or similar? I just dont know where else I could put my reservoir pump. If I can't fit the 25mm fans in front I might invest in some ultra thin 12mm fans. Either way I will be running a push pull config for the radiator and then probably two exhaust fans. One off the top and the other off the back. also if anyones water cooling a vega card how are your temps? my GPU core and HBM2 temps are fantastic, but that Hotspot temperature still reaches 105C. It heats up my loop significantly. My CPU will reach above 85
  14. UPDATE: dried everything and cleaned with a electronic quick drying spray to help evaporate whatever coolant was left. Keep in mind I wasn't using water. I was using non conductive coolant. The health of everything is perfect. No problems at all with any parts. No disrespect to anyone who disagrees with this but I will be going with a venting fitting that will release only air. These are the fittings I'm getting. So for those of you who are scared or are marred from a previous experience like this. There's no reason to be. While you should only custom loop if you're an enthusiast who loves it for what it is, (because air cooling accomplishes the same temps now) you shouldn't be scared about accidents completely destroying your PC. This is my takeaway from all of this. While I do hope that this is the last time I will have to panick, I would be ok and at peace with a small leak happening because technology of coolant has come a long way.
  15. I think I will take one of my reservoirs caps of when the system is under decent load
