Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

Well I installed my pump reservoir the other day and it is working great and is very quiet....but, I have a big issue. I barely have any flow going through. I took apart my Alphacool flow indicator and got the scum out of it but it will not turn. I barely have any water flow and the D5 is running 4500rpm and is supposed to get 25L/min flow rate. I am getting about .25L/min. I opened up the CPU block to see and it looked clean inside. It is either the GPU and or the radiator. I am going radiator shopping. If that doesn't fix it I will take my GPU block apart and clean it but I am almost positive it is the radiator. I have worked on this for two days.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

Did some reviewing and came up with an EK rad. This just came out late '17 and has a lot of copper per weight compared to others, low flow design with parallel chambers, and it will match my fan and case mounting holes. Found it in the U.S. and delivered for $69.

Curios where you find the blockage to be.

I'm guessing you drive calcium out of hard water at one of the hotter parts, either the cpu block or the gpu block.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

It is really blocked somewhere. I have the D5 full on and it is barely moving any water in the loop. You can see a big air bubble sitting in the hose from the CPU. I put Prime95 on last night and it instantly hit 104C and games are getting above 60C. It is because there is almost no water flow. I looked inside the CPU block yesterday and it looked brand new. It is either the radiator or GPU. I should be getting the radiator very soon. I will know if it is the radiator or not when I pull it out. If it appears OK, I will have to tear apart the GPU block. I have thought it could be cavitation but I have adjusted the pump from 10% on up to 100% slowly and same result. Those familiar with custom water loops with will attest to how fast the water runs through and will push air through the system immediately upon turning the pump on. I will surely get this fixed if it takes buying all new water blocks. I should have an amazing water loop running with what I have setup and my CPU and GPU blocks were touted as very non-restrictive. One thing, I am going to a new well built radiator with better flow properties so I am at least replacing the weakest link.

XSPC Raystorm Pro CPU waterblock Page 2

"EK-FC1080 GTX - ACETAL+NICKEL
EK-FC1080 GTX is a high performance full-cover water block for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition graphics cards. This water block directly cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas, thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC1080 GTX water block features a central inlet split-flow cooling engine design for best possible cooling performance, which also works flawlessly with reversed water flow without adversely affecting the cooling performance. Moreover, such design offers great hydraulic performance allowing this product to be used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps."

No but as long as there is no aluminum. The radiator core and CPU block are copper. The GPU block is nickel plated copper I believe.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

Here's some info. on the EK branded D5 Laing pump I am using.

- Maximum pressure head: 3.9m
- Maximum flow: 1500L/h

It took about 5min just to empty less than gallon container in the sink the other day and this pump can push 1500L/h => ‪396.26Gal/h =>‬ 6.6Gal/min. That is a lot of water. It also has a head of 3.9m => 12.8ft. That means the pump can push water up a vertical pipe 12.8ft tall. That is hard to do. The volume/pressure of 12.8ft of water is high.

"One pound per square inch (lbs/in2 or psi) is approximately equal to 2.31 feet of water height (column of water) no matter how big around or square the column is. One foot of water height is approximately equal to 0.434 psi." The average municipal water tower is 130' high. That is almost 60psi. The average household water pressure is regulated to around 40psi which you cannot hold back with your thumb at all.

Needless to say, the D5 is a powerhouse of a pump for it's size and voltage and is capable of moving water through several devices faster than necessary.

Cool your good on that part....did you have a thin rad before...how about enough capacity for your cpu and gpu?

Yeah I have always used a 28-32mm radiator. I think Corsairs AIO'S are 27mm. I have plenty of water capacity. I know there are much bigger reservoirs available but I think that mostly for looks. An automobile cooling system has two hoses and a radiator. It has an overflow bucket but that is not part of the cooling system. A reservoir helps in stabilizing the fluid flow before it enter the pump, acts as a collector of sediments and air bubbles, and expansion of hot liguid. It also offers a convenient fluid filling station and level indication. Size of the reservoir is not critical and you don't have to have one. I also have long sections of hoses in my water loop which hold a significant amount of water (more than the blocks themselves).

The part that takes heat away (radiator) is critical and the general rule of thumb is one 120mm square radiator per device. I am using two 140mm radiators for my two devices. My CPU though is not OC'd and really does not do anything to ever load it hot under normal use.

Re: Asus ROG RAMPAGE VI APEX

Here is where I am at now while playing Wolf TNO, way higher than normal.

CPU = 78C
GPU = 67C

The thing about a CPU water block is it makes and excellent cooler when water flows through it but, if there is no flow it is almost like having nothing. It is a small block of metal attached to two plastic hoses and it will overheat very quickly.
