curbillyThis is the latest screenshot
curbillyThis is probably going to sound like a dumb question, but I was under the impression that the card I purchased didn’t need to be hooked up to my cooling system ? Am I mistaken ?
curbillyNot rude at all Kevin, I’m just pissed at myself because I’m usually OCD when it comes to research and everything and I totally dropped the ball on this one. Yes the photo you posted is my exact cooling system, except I swapped out the pump because the old one stopped working. I have some fluid left from when I did that project. I just need to get some tubing, my current tubing is 1/2ID and 3/4 OD, and some barbs and / or compression fittings. Do you guys know if the the treads are 1/4 for that card, website isn’t easy to find the details. I do have a micro center but closed till tomorrow, and I’m not sure if they will have what I need, have never been in there. I can order the stuff from amazon for a Sunday delivery seems like best case right now. I will post a pic of the inside of my computer in a few so you guys can see the layout.
curbillyOk I will do that and see what happens. Do u think it’s a power supply issue ? Do I need separate modular cables To power the video card
curbillyDo you think it’s a bad card ?
curbillyI completely understand that, but it turning off without the cooling would make me think it wasn’t fried, and also it booting up and running after the cooling was installed I would think was a plus. Was the numbers I posted after I installed the water cooling within the acceptable numbers ? If it was fried would it still run and have all the leds run on it ?
curbillyI am going to try each individual display port and see what happens. No leaks at all and I disconnected and reseated the power connectors to the card. The screenshot I posted was right before I launched the game, and it legitimately crashed 2 minutes later. Never actually got to play the game, saw the FPS and then went into settings and changed the option to limit FPS at 144 to unlimited and I saw that it was at around 210 FPS for about 15 seconds before the screen went white
