    Well after getting it installed and filling the loop it is not working. I didn't test it before installing the water block because it came naked without a cooler but I know the person that sent it to me wouldn't send me a defective gpu. It's not detected in the bios or nvidia control panel, the only thing I can think of it either got damaged during shipping or I used too much thermal grizzly conductonaut which I hope I didn't. I'm going to pull it apart and see what it looks like.

    I need to get some more tubing before doing it so it won't be today.

    What a BIG bummer.

    Try removing your other graphics card for now. Clear your CMOS. And if possible reseat your GPU.

    Hey Chino !


    Man I'm really worried I might have used too much conductonaut, I'm gonna be so mad if I did.

    In this picture, if the liguid metal goes onto ring of small pins around the die, would this kill it?

    Did you protect the VRMs around the DIE with varnish for example, when you applied the Conductonaut? I fear that the liquid metal poured on it when you put the waterblock on the card, causing a short circuit.

    I fear the same thing and no I did not put varnish on them. I'll have to see how bad it is, you don't know how bad I'm kicking myself right now. Would you know an easy way to remove the liquid metal or is it already toast ?

    If I can get the liquid metal off could it work again ?

    I should have played it safe with the kryonaut.

    I haven't taken it apart yet, yesterday I was minutes from tearing it down when my buddy called and said he may have damaged it taking it apart and cleaning it but I think I killed it with the conductonaut. Then he says since the warranty is void for removing the cooler, let's blame it on shipping. I was expecting him to be mad at me and call me every name in the book and I'd deserve every one.

    It looks like the project will continue, he said to expect a package in about a week. He wouldn't say what it was so I can only suspect it will be a Titan Xp. I imagine it will be brand sparkling new too so I will test it with the stock cooler before installing the water block.

    Hi Nate, and especially for the next Titan XP, uses Kryonaute, takes no risk this time, play it safe.

    Hi Benson33

    You know it !

    I put electrical tape on those resistors around the die when applying the conductonaut but then I removed it.

    As one who doesn't OC or water cool I have a question for anyone who cares to respond. If you or I have the hardware to run current games/software at desired resolutions with acceptable frame rates, what's the point in OCing or water cooling? I've had several hobbies over my long years and I've always pushed to be the best I could but would never push myself or equipment to the point it could fail. So, what's the fascination?

    ps.....Though I quoted Nate152 it is not directed at him. This question is for anyone whom can help me understand!

    Hi Heni

    Well, overclocking can potentially damage your hardware, the most important thing is to pay attention to temps and voltage and know your hardware's limit. For instance Intel says a max voltage of 1.52v and 64c for the 6700k - 7700k. I asked Intel to confirm on there online chat and the guy I spoke with said you can run it at 85c 24/7 but I wouldn't feel comfortable running mine there. There is also the possibility of degradation and this can happen if you run at too high of temps or over 1.52v for long periods of time.

    This is where water cooling comes in, as an example say you overclock your 6700k to 4.5GHz with 1.30v and temps are at their limit, with liquid cooling you now may be able to do 4.7GHz with 1.40v - 1.45v, so watercooling either gives you more headroom for overclocking or it gives you a queiter pc.

    Overclocking your gpu is even safer and has been for a while since Nvidia started capping the voltage, with the voltage capped there is no chance of damaging your gpu. You may have a couple BSOD's or freezes when overclocking it but that is normal until you get it dialed in.

    GPU Boost 3.0 works by temp and can be your friend or enemy, once it hits a certain temp it will start throttling the voltage and frequency but if temps are nice and super low it will boost over the advertised frequency. Once you hit the power limit it will also start throttling, stock is 100% power limit but Nvidia gives the option to take it to 120% with the OC gpu's and I imagine with the Titan X - Xp too. Linked with the power limit is the temp target, I let it linked for the highest temp and for the ROG Strix 1070 it's 92c but there is throttling once the temp hits 70c. I sometimes use a fan curve or just crank the fans to 100% before starting a game and temps are on average anywhere from 50c to 60c.

    Now I know you don't like software for anything not even a cpu cooler but if there is one thing I could talk you into using it would be GPU Tweak II, MSI Afterburner, or EVGA Precision X. You'd get free performance up to maybe 10 FPS or a little more depending on the game and with your EVGA AIO cooler you shouldn't have any throttling.

    So all in all overclocking is safe as long as you keep within the voltage guidelines and pay attention to temps, the reason I overclock is it's fun and it's free performance.
