  1. Hi All, I recently installed an XG7 STRIX water block on my Asus ROG Strix 3070 Ti. Corsair's website says the water block is compatible with my card, but I'm a bit concerned about the thermal pads that came on the block. One row of the VRM's don't have a thermal pad, but the other row does. I found an unboxing video of this water block, and the number of thermal pads are the same, so it looks like this is by design? Is there any reason there wouldn't be a thermal pad here?
  2. Grüße, Ich habe auf meine RTX 3080 Ti founders edition einen Hydro X G7 Kühler gesetzt. Funktioniert alles soweit gut. Idle 40 Grad. Wenn ich jedoch ein Spiel starte geht einfach der Bildschirm aus und der PC hängt sich auf. Das letzte was ich in ICue sehe ist GPU Temperatur bei 80 Grad. Das ist ja recht viel für eine Wasserkühlung. Ich hab den Kühler direkt und mit der vorgefertigten Paste aufgesetzt. Kann es irgendwie ein Kühlproblem sein oder ist die Karte Kaputt? Kennt jemand die Abschaltdaten der GPU? Ich weiß nur ab 85 Grad throttled sie aber meine geht ja einfach aus. Abbauen wollte ich vermeiden, da ich dann ja die Wasserkühlung ablassen muss. Als Netzteil habe ich ein 1000W Netzteil. Das System bleibt weiterhin „angeschlagen“ nur eingefroren. schonmal danke für eure Hilfe!
  3. Bonjour, J'ai fait l'acquisition d'un watercooling custom récemment. Voici la liste des éléments : - x6 Fans => QL120 RGB -> regroupés par 3 sur 2 radiateurs XRT 360 - CPU Waterblock => XC7 RGB - GPU Waterblock => XG7 RGB - Pompe => XD5 RGB J'ai aussi un HUB avec la possibilité de brancher 6 fans. Mais du coup j'ai l'impression qu'il va me manquer certains éléments ? Peut-être un commander et un autre HUB? J'ai l'impression dans un premier temps que je peux chainer la pompe XD5 avec la XG7 du GPU puis mettre ça sur un AdressableRGB? À chaque fois (XC7 / XG7 et la XD5) il y a 2 cables et j'ai l'impression que les 3 peuvent être chainés pour finir sur un seul port ARGB de la Carte Mère. Pour infos la CM est une ASUS ROG Maximus XII Formula. Questions 1. Du coup est-ce que la XC7 + XG7 + XD5 sont bien chainables? Si oui le premier a un des 2 cables qui va nulle part et sur le dernier le second va dans la CM c'est bien ça? Mon véritable soucis ici est le branchement! Le HUB et le Commander PRO (que je n'ai pas pour ce dernier) ne peuvent accueillir chacun que 6 FANS! Hors j'ai 6 FANS + le FAN de la pompe! 2. Comment effectuer les branchements? Merci d'avance :)
  4. Hallo zusammen, ich habe - als meine erste Custom WaKü - die Hydro X Series verbaut: - Corsair 4000D Airflow - XD3 Pumpe - XC7 CPU-Kühler - XR5 360 Radiator - XT Softline Schläuche - XF OD Fittings Jetzt möchte ich gern den XG7 GPU-Kühler nachträglich einbauen. Wie stelle ich das am besten an? Da die Kühlflüssigkeit neu ist, würde ich diese gern weiterverwenden. Gibt es einen einfachen Tipp, wie ich das möglichst ohne "Überflutung" anstellen kann? :-D Vielen Dank für jegliche Hilfe!
  5. Hey gang, this may be common knowledge, but it wasn't something that was apparent to me even after looking through this forum. After putting together my loop, I apparently did a poor job cleaning off the shavings from my acrylic tubing. This meant that those pieces would get loose in the loop and ultimately get stuck in the fins of my GPU. This was driving me nuts, as I could actually see the bits and pieces stuck against the fins, and paranoid me was feeling like it was disrupting the flow of coolant throughout my system. I never knew just how much you see every little imperfection when you put together a loop, and simply can't keep your hands off of it; but I digress. I searched for videos on cleaning the inside of an XG7 but came away a bit intimidated. I know I'll eventually need to take the whole block apart for a deep cleaning down the road, but I just needed to clean the fins at this point. The video by Bit-Tech does a great job doing tear-downs of the Hydro X system, but of course they sped up the section of video where they took apart the XG7. But even from the speed-run, it looked a bit complex with a ton of tiny screws. [ame= ] [/ame] Then I stumbled on a video by JayzTwoCents where he does an overview of the Hydro X system, and he made note of the fact that the fin array appeared to not be directly machined into the block, but was actually secured with 8 screws. [ame= ] [/ame] With this I took my GPU out of the system and separated the XG7 from the GPU to investigate. And it turns out that the fin array is indeed not built into the block, but secured using 8 screws after all. This means that the fin array itself is removable from the block. All you have to do is remove the GPU from the block, remove the 8 screws directly behind the fin array, and the fin array will just fall out. From there I scrubbed it with a toothbrush and rinsed it with distilled water. Installing it back couldn't be simpler either: simply reinstall the 8 screws and reinstall the GPU. You will need to clean the thermal paste and reapply it, so make sure you have that handy before you start taking it apart. To be safe, take note of the tension applied to the screws when you remove them so you can install them at that level of tension again. There's an O-ring in there that seals the deal, so a snug fit is needed, but I would probably avoid over-tightening. I would also avoid fully tightening the screws until all of them are seated, and proceed to tighten in a star pattern to make sure you get even pressure across the plate. I'm not sure if Corsair designed the block this way because 1) it's cheaper to manufacture it this way than to build it into a solid block, 2) they anticipated that people would need to get in there to clean/replace the fins, or 3) both. All the same, I'm glad I found this out and wanted to get this information out there in case it helps another noob like myself. TLDR: The fin array in the XG7 is not built into the block, but can be extracted for cleaning by removing the 8 conveniently located screws directly behind it.
  6. I'm trying to see if my EVGA Geforce RTX 2070 Super Ultra XC is compatible with the XG7 cooler. The compatibility says it does not, but every other 2070 and 2080 model seems compatible. Am I missing something?
  7. hi hopefully this is in the right place but feel free to move it if it should be elsewhere. so i have three hydro x parts in my system (gpu, cpu blocks and the pump) all were working fine then playing doom eternal over the weekend they all stopped lighting up and the node wasnt detected within icue, i used USBDeview to check the connection to find it said it wasnt connected. i ordered a replacement with the rgb strips, hooked it all up and daisy chained the hydro x stuff, it worked for about 30 seconds. i assumed i was unlucky and got a defective on so got amazon to replace it. tested the new one in another system with only the rgb strips and worked flawlessly but as soon as i put in my main rig it stopped again almost straight away. surely i cannot of received two faulty products in a row. could the node have burnt out/fried when attached to my system? using corsair RM850X with the out of the box cables, i do have two sets of Deepcool MF120 fans on the same sata line with no problems with them. any help anyone could provide would be grateful :
