In Topic: New Build, artifacting gpu

Very likely you did this but did you do a "clean" install of GPU Driver ? Using a 3rd party tool like DDU and then run CCleaner to "clean" the Registry after running DDU.....then install Drivers.....

Hey Mike (OP) ....couple of other little tips...


- When flushing your Rads and on your final rinses pour the water from the Rads through a filter (coffee works best) and look in there for bits n pieces...if none all is good.


- If flushing (although im not a fan of fushing...may as well disassemble so you can take the GPU and CPU Blocks apart to properly clean the fins..make up a fitting for your Rez with a "transition" that will fit a standard Garden hose...hook up to your Rez...open your drain valve and "flush" for a awhile ...fill up a bucket or whatever.....obviously watch how much pressure to put to it...


On another note....for the other folks here..any idea when I can get a Signature up ?


cheers .....

Been using CLR for years (yes we have it here in Canada as well as Oz)....great stuff.


- Only for rinsing the inside of your rads.

- Dilute with extremely hot water, fill rads and shake rattle n roll for several minutes.

- Dump it out and repeat 3 or 4 times.

- Rinse rads thoroughly with fresh tap water.

- Final rinse a few times with distilled water.

- stand rads up on end (on order to drain) and let em drain / dry for a day or so.


For GPU Blocks I recommend disassembling (disassemble blocks and throughly clean..toothbrush to get in the grooves under jet plates works great).

Disassemble pump n rez...clean thoroughly...use whatever works best....just rinse throroughly with distilled prior to filling.

Replace Tubing (may as well you had it apart...


Im super lazy....longest I went was 26 or 28 months with out cleaning my loop....had "mushroom looking anenomies" growing in my Rez lol....still had great temps though ;) ....shortly after that though some gunk made it into one of my 1080Ti EK Blocks and temps shot up....time to clean hahaha


I find some folks are wayyyyy to anal with there loops.....there not delicate eggs and are extremely forgiving / robust (when put together right)


I'll get my rig in my sig soon...
