OK thanks for the reassurance. I am definitely on the "let it roll" plan today also.

Ya modguy read the thread it's all there. No temp sensor. Go fish.

Personally I think it doesn't matter though; once you put a waterblock on there all you need is a water temp sensor. I am going...

I should have put some valves in but whatever - it is all bolted together now.

If you are in CUDA mode for most of your analysis running 25% CPU load, why upgrade the processor? Just curious.

Good news on that aircooler! Part of me didn't want to drill that plate out because I figured they used eight screws for a reason (to hold it to the pcb). But I'm sure it will be fine.

For temp...

Well, results with the 9cfm squirrel fan were predictable: quiet but hot. I turned it off at 90 degrees on the .nbody simulation. I have to say that test would make a hell of a screensaver - 225...

The MCW82 is going to hit the little elevated nubs on the black heat plate (the elevated mounting holes for the heat pipe screws) before the water block contacts the GPU. It is going to be hard to...

I think you will need the 8-series mounting bracket with 58.4mm hole spacing. If you are keeping the spreader plate it gets a bit more complicated, as the block mounting...

That sounds smart. Once the existing sink is removed, it is no more work to put a water cooled system in place, and it conserves space, uses existing fans well, and is quiet. I have been looking at...

The arctic unit is definitely high capacity, but it is PWM. I think most graphics cards have a PWM out jack regulated by GPU temp. So far, I have not seen a jack like that on an M2090 and have reason...

Is this basically a bolt on deal or what? Anybody know the M2090 gpu bolt pattern? I haven't pried my case off yet to check. I think I saw it posted somewhere so I'll do another search.
