    Hi,
    Nice @Kol12
    Couple water blocks and rads and you're in the water world
    Will do probably wonders for that 2080ti
    Don't forget a water temp sensor it will tell the story of why temps are where they are
    Thanks Thrash. I got my EK Velocity CPU block today and now I'm just waiting for some EK fittings to come back into stock. I'm going with black nickel fittings and black onyx PrimoChill tubing... The 2080 Ti won't be done immediately but it sure will be the icing on the cake when it's done. Edit: Yep I will use an inline sensor screwed into a t-block at the radiator for temp monitoring...

    That's pretty much the one I was looking at. I saw a Thermaltake one but it was too expensive. Water cooling company's are getting fancy now and putting temp sensor lcd's on the water block and stuff like that, Bitspower has a new one. XSPC also has a non lcd inline sensor that you plug into your motherboard temp headers so you can monitor through software as well...

    Hi,
    Yeah it worked for me because I added the led display to the front of my cases to see the temps easier

    Sounds really painful Kipper! I would be moving onto a different cooler for sure!!
    Well paul, I moved on to another 240 cooler the EVGA CLC 240.... this presented a new and different set of problems...


    Show off your PC!-20190428_160533.jpg

    The EVGA software to control their AIO coolers has a flaw in how it caputres the Temps; I believe that when it shows the temps in C it is most likely actually showing the temp reading in F.... I have been monitoring what EVGA Flow Control software shows along with Core Temp and if you convert the Celsius Reading in Core Temp to Fahrenheit the numbers in Flow Control are pretty much right on in Fahrenheit....

    Show off your PC!-temps.jpg

    I also tried the previous version of Flow Control and it showed temps that were retared by 10 when compaired to Core Temp and the MB readings....

    Seems I have read that allmost all of these AIO units that have integrated their own software have been having problems getting everything to read correctly...

    So for now I am controling the pump and fan speed via the BIOS...

    I got my hands on a Swiftech H240 X3 cooler so I am going to mount it in the next few days and seem how it does...

    Weird readings alright. Unfortunately EVGA software has never been great. If I was following and knew you were looking for another AIO I would have recommended a Corsair. Do you have HWiNFO? HWiNFO can usually monitor most AIO's, it's not recommended but you could enable it once to see if it gives a temperature reading in celsius vs Fahrenheit. Also head over to the software section of EVGA forums and see if anyone there can get this sorted for you.

    What's that on top your case? It looks like an extension of the top dust grill.

    I used HWiNFO, Core Temp, AIDA64 which all reported the same temps.... I was surprised when I joined the EVGA forums to find there is only one thread regarding the Flow Control Software and less than 20 posts in the thread but all posts pretty much follow the same problem with the temps being reported incorrectly since the first release of the program...

    I have used several of the Corsair AIO coolers in the past prior to Corsair adding any of their software. Seems that even Corsair is not immune to software problems from reviewing their forums...

    Up next will be the Swiftech H240 X3 cooler, no software for it; if you want to play with the optional colored led lighting you have to use the provided controller to select the scheme and the led controller and fan hookups are on the controller... the controller and pump are SATA powered and pump and fan speeds are controlled via the BIOS...

    If I decide to stay with liquid cooling I will build a custom loop again. From my experience the top Air Coolers will perform just as well as any AIO and in a lot of cases even better. My main concern is the size of the best Air Coolers and their weight which could lead to MB damage and will interfere with air flow within the chassis...
