also got video card finished except for repluming my hosing nightmare.r9700 was running 470 core and 374 memory i think?i am at work so tonight i will post a pic of temps and chilled video card .

I had teh same thing happen when I accidentally shut off my water pump! my best guess is that the TIM I'm using never gets above room temp and never has a chance to properly capallirize (is that a word?), course yours prolly never got that warm
