RIP. It exploded, noob mistake. Air rises to highest point in system and since not all the air was out, this was the highest point and it since my system was on it heated up the tubing and it exploded. I had to replace the motherboard and graphics card barcause of this.

post-97032-0-57183800-1430438597_thumb.jpg

 

Replaced the 980

post-97032-0-21988300-1430438697_thumb.jpg
