Hi.
I have some problems with my Coolit OMNI A.L.C (watercooling for my GTX 470), it does not cool my GPU down...

Thats all I can say for now.

I think I have found the issue, there was a leakage with the radiator during transportation in the mail so most of the liquid ran out (no liquid to flow around and cool the GPU).
Factory error I presume, but thank anyways for every suggestions.

More than likely you installed it incorrectly. Why did you feel watercooling was necessary? You haven't posted any temps so we have no idea if you're having a problem or not. From what I've read, the GTX 470 idle temps are usually mid/upper 40s to low 50s & can hit 90s under full load with standard air cooling.

With the Stock cooler for my GTX 470 I get around 50 C for idle and during gaming it might top 105 C... So I felt watercooling would have been a nice try, but it just wont cool down my GPU. I dont know whats wrong. The waterpump works and the watercoolers fan works but it still wont cool it down. The idle temperatureis around 70 C and load 100+++. I didnt want to test furmark for more than a couple of Seconds because the temp goes higher and higher like it doesnt get cooled at all.
Its wierd.

The high temp at idle tells me you didn't install it correctly. How much thermal paste did you use?

I used the amount that was already put on the cooler(It was already put on right out of the box).
The fan spins and the radiator makes some noise so I know it starts, still no cooling function.
The weird part is that it does not regulate it selves. Same work load from the fan and radiator even under high temperatures.
