OPTIMUS WATER BLOCK INSTALLED!!!!

Ok so here where my best air cooling on port royal. Thats all i have done testing so far,,, So on air the best I was getting was +175 GPU and +275 MEM no boost lock on 500 watt bios. Tried the XC3 bios but changed nothing on my score which led me to believe my card was throttling. GPUZ showed a high of 84C and a power draw high of 485 Watts [for port royal. I was able to hit 500+ peaks on other more demanding games so I dont feel I was power limited. My systems is threadripper 3 24 core on 4.35 all core boost (not a gaming CPU obviously, probable costs me about 200 to 300 points on 3dmark) asrock tiachi MB and dd4 at 3666 14T mem locked to 1:1 infinity fabric. So best score i ever got on a port was 13950.

So in goes Optimus!!!!

SOOOOOOOO HEAT LIMITED ON AIR!!!!!!

Mem went to +375 GPU went to +200 WITH BOOST LOCK ON.... 14547!!!!!! A 600 point Increase!@!!!!!!

So this is what i noticed. Not a good paste job on the GPU or quality paste and thermal pads when i took off the cooler. I did use liquid metal instead of kryonout. My temps max out at 40C. My power draw dropped to about 455 watts so the fans take about 12-15 watts per fan!!!! Will try the xc3 bios to see if it makes a difference since heat is out of the equation.

So bottom line.... IMO I think we are dealing with thermal throttling that keeps these cards from hitting power limits. On air i noticed throttling starting at 60C with big time throttling above 70C. And i was hitting 84C.

My card has red lips and 14 on the serial number

Will up date when i have time to play with it more.

    That's awesome!
     
    You've got me all excited.  Waiting on my EK Block ... not as fancy but should do the trick.
     
    How many and what size rads in your rig?  Anything else outside of the CPU & GPU under water as well?

    Added the 1000 watt bios. Have it set for 600 crossed 15k on port royal and almost 12k on time spy extreme. Made the top 30. This block is no joke.

    [<font][cita-dios503]
    Se ha añadido la biografía de 1000 vatios. Que se fije para 600 cruzado 15k en el puerto real y casi 12k en el extremo espía de tiempo. Llegó al top 30. Este bloque no es una broma.

    Finally got my system up and running with an Optimus block.  This thing is a cooling beast!  Tops out in the low 40c range at 2100mhz after an hour under full load.

    THAT IS AN AWESOME SETUP!!!!. I'm using the 1k bios and the power is set for 650 watts. Time spy extreme sucks every watt of that. A couple hours if cyberpunk and it tops out at 51c. At 650 watts. This water block is no joke.

    Not to trumpet everyone else, but that looks fantastic.  I really like the super clean setup up top and using the passthroughs to hide the tubing moving around the case.  On my first water cool build ja few months ago I did bent hard tubing and inside a Corsair 1000D.  That case is so huge you end up with some long ass runs and you can see .5 degree deviations from 90 degrees on bends, especially when you stack 4-6 pends per tube.  Super nice clean and nice.

    I can’t stop looking at this build. I don’t know how you focus on games; I’d just stare at this thing and get one tapped.

    Just so much thought and care put into this design. So impressive!

    Beautiful build! I just ordered the GPU block myself. Likely one of the first on today's batch as I was F5ing like crazy. Now comes the wild ride of waiting which can be quite the roller coaster with Optimus I hear. My question to you is what RGB strip did you stick on the block and what did you use to stick it on?

    Thanks!  The light strip is...

    The block uses 41 LEDS, and I soldered by own power and data connector on.  I did not take the blue LED strip adhesive protector layer thingy off so that the back of the LED strip wouldn't stick to anything.  The thickness of the clear adhesive and LED strip is a perfect snug with with the armor on my Crosshair Hero VIII board.

    I wanted to order the Optimus block today, but they didn't announce a time and went out of stock before I could refresh...
     
    Fun.  Guess I'll stick with my EK block?

    Interesting, where'd you hear that? They still haven't responded to my email last week, or to my tweet.

    I was expecting them to release at 9am their time, so I was up early to spam refresh at 7am PST.

    I thought this was their first time opening orders since October.

    The info is on their website and on twitter. This is their first time opening orders since batch 2 and they are changing up the way they are doing the batches to weekly smaller batches.

    Just cpu and gpu. Each have there own loop on a quad rad



    You got some nice results - congrats!
     
    Pics?
     
    Super excited to finish this build now.




    Finally got my system up and running with an Optimus block.  This thing is a cooling beast!  Tops out in the low 40c range at 2100mhz after an hour under full load.
    Pics of my system...






    Beautiful build! I just ordered the GPU block myself. Likely one of the first on today's batch as I was F5ing like crazy. Now comes the wild ride of waiting which can be quite the roller coaster with Optimus I hear. My question to you is what RGB strip did you stick on the block and what did you use to stick it on?




    Thanks!  The light strip is...

    And the adhesive is...

    The block uses 41 LEDS, and I soldered by own power and data connector on.  I did not take the blue LED strip adhesive protector layer thingy off so that the back of the LED strip wouldn't stick to anything.  The thickness of the clear adhesive and LED strip is a perfect snug with with the armor on my Crosshair Hero VIII board.


    Thanks for the info. That clear adhesive looks to be pretty permanent? 




    I messed around with the adhesive a bit, and with a bit of patience, it'll come off and won't leave any sticky residue behind.  But you'll need to work at it a bit.

    Hey I am looking at the optimus block for my 3090. Do you have any vram junction temps during furmark or mining?

     When mining full time at max temp vram junction for me is 74 degrees as well
