Thanks! Yeah, i have already sanded it but maybe a different grit. i've seen 3mm sheet of acrylic which have been several square meters big and in order to get a even light through the whole sheet they used a co2 laser to cut different sized grooves throughout the sheet in order to get an even light. This might be a bit overkill for a ram mod but the principle is the same if u use a co2 laser or different grit sandpaper So i will do some tests and hopefully i will get it sorted out.

Hey guys!
Back now, been very busy with work and a lot of other stuff.

Have been trying my best to get the ram working but after corsairs "release" on monday i decided to shelf my idea.

I tried making grooves and so on in the acrylic and i got the light to spread decently as far as the new corsair kits are covered. Maybe they had the same problem Anyways, I will move on to some other mods i want to try out instead. Updates to come as soon as i make some progress

Oh, also got the Rig Of The Year over at guru 3D!

Hey guys! Seems like it was forever since i was last on, been so busy with work and life in general i have not had much time for modding. I did make a bunch of different backplates which i will hopefully post a pic of tonight.

But for now i need your help.
Sadly the coolant i used didn't work out so had to swap it to some normal cooling. This is when evrything went south and i have no idea anymore what's wrong. Hopefully some of you might have an idea.

The problem is GPU #2 keeps rising until the computer shuts down.
The loop order is res-pump-rad-parallell gpu's - res. The rad is an ek xt240

On idle both sits around 5c over ambient, max on gpu is 57c, when i stop stress testing they bouth drop to 5 over ambient in a matter of min.

If i swap the gpu's around it's the other one that overheats.

What i have tried:
- Cleaning out the blocks and reseated the blocks.
- Checked the pump for flow and pressure
- Flushed the whole system
- swapepd around gpu's --> the other one overheats
- checked that there are water in both gpu's
- have bled the computers for hrs in evry possible position while running, def not air in the system.

The only thing i can think of is for some reason there is not enough flow through the 2nd gpu block.

Anyone have any ideas? I was thinking of getting a series block just to rule out the parallell block.

Ace

The problem might be the parallel block. i would change that first and see from there. serial makes sure that the liquid has to circulate trough both blocks.
Good luck.
