You can't compare water to air. Water is amazing for how well it cools these GPU's down. But did you turn the fan speed up on the stock cooler? Most people don't do that and complain loudly. Stock temps for air are usually 50Cor so idle and ~70C load which is well within operational limits and won't hurt a thing. With the fan on 100%, most people see a 20C drop in those temps as well even with the stock cooler.

but 50 idle and 70 load are to high for me, even if it is normal temps. i had it up 100%, was about 40ish idle and 60 load. to high for me

Yeah, I agree 100%. The stock coolers on my GTX's are insane. THe GPU's idle around 35C and the highest load temps I have seen so far is 55C. I too am a temp nut and anything over 50C makes me want to cry, LOL!

Cool!

Looks like you spent some time managing the wires while you were at it.

Figured while I was already in there I might as well. Hiding them at first was really easy but got rather hard in the end. Started to run outta hiding places lol.

How long did you leak test for?

I'm running my replacement block now, and figure I'll let it go overnight.

Best way I've found is to wipe tissue on joints & low points of the tube.

Any leakage shows up really well.
