R9 290 overheating after upgrading cpu aio

Status
Not open for further replies.
I have a Powercolor R9 290 with a Corsair Hydro Series HG10 and Corsair H60 AIO that has stopped working after changing the AIO for my cpu with a better one.
When I turn on my pc the gpu takes less than two minutes to overheat and shut down my pc and it has never done that before.
The gpu has not been overclocked and I have tried connecting the AIO pump to other motherboard headers.
I have also tried tipping the pc in case it had air bubbles inside but still nothing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated since I can not afford to buy a new gpu or AIO cooler.

g'day Zed and welcome to the forum.

do you have the original cooler for the GPU on hand still?
what about going back to the cooler you used before the upgrade?
just to get you going again and to double check your connections as you change things over - might have an "ah-ha" moment.

so you only changed the water cooling on the CPU, the one on the GPU is still the same?

Sadly I don't have the original cooler since I bought the R9 used.

And yes I only changed the cpu water cooling. I didn't do anything to the GPU other than take it out to make space for cpu cooler instalation.

If it's of any relevance I upgraded from a antec kuhler 620 to an nzxt kraken z63.

so the HG10 is the GPU bracket with a H60 CPU cooler as the pump and radiator for the GPU?

and the new CPU cooler is fully functioning and keeping the processor cool?

the fan in the HG10 bracket spins as does the AIO radiator fan?
let's add some pics of the setup in case that sheds some light!

Yeah the HG10 is the bracket and the H60 is the GPU cooler. The fans on both the GPU bracket and cooler work and the new cpu cooler is working fine it's just the GPU that's giving me a problem.

I'm currently not at home but when I get back I can attach a picture.

and the fan on the radiator for the H60 is also working?
so in fact the GPU has two fans, one in the bracket, and one for the pumps radiator?
did any of the water pumps come with an adapter to bypass getting power from a mobo header and getting it straight from the PSU via a SATA or molex power cable?

you're probably right, they do run quiet, and from memory I couldn't feel mine either and I feel that would have been something I would have done after I installed it. (y)

what other mobo headers have you tried the water pump power in?
and jump into BIOS to check the settings on those headers, like, maybe they are temp triggered or disabled, just throwing ideas out there.

plug the pump into the header the fan is working from, at least you know that one is good then try the fan in some other header.

you did put thermal paste under the GPU pump? :)

I tried the cooler on two other fan headers and still nothing (there's no special pump headers on my Mobo).

I don't see why the headers would be disabled but it wouldn't hurt to check.

I did check and replace the thermal paste on the card
