My System Specs

It should be ok once the loop is full, but watch your flow while filling. This is one case where I'd definitely disconnect the CPU and GPU until you know that you've got good flow through the loop. The blocks heat up fast if there's no flow, as I found out the hard way.
Your memory isn't failing you, that was my initial line of thought, but it evolved into a drain tube which should make life a lot easier.
