Exos 2 v2 and GTX 480

Postby naoaki » Tue Aug 02, 2011 6:34 pm

This is my first water cooled rig and it doesn't seem to be going very well. I have an Exos 2 v2 with 10mm ID tubing cooling only a GTX 480 SC (725 core/1900 mem) using the Koolance GTX 480 water block and the temps seem to be much higher than what I am seeing others post online. I idle around 44 C and at load it goes up to 90 C. This is still cooler and quieter than the stock air cooler, but nothing close to the 60 C overclocked to 900 mhz core at load that I have seen people posting on forums for their GTX 480s. Anyone have any ideas why my results are so awful?

What is the Exos 2? And what other wcing gear are u using? Like what rad and pump. I have 3 480s with k blocks and they never get over 50c gaming. Did u install all the thermal pads correctly and are any of the pads creating a space where there shouldn't be.

Sounds toasty to me. Even with a room temp of 80F, my video cards to not go past 60c. Are your fans working properly. Like other poster, sure your pads and thermal paste were applied correctly.

Agreed, check that all of your pads are touching the components. Make sure the pump is running to and you have enough juice making it back to the exos. You should not be having this problem.
