Have a 5770 atm. But i am happy with my PC's performance i get 28+ FPS in gta V with DX11 1280x1024 and tessellation and ambient occlusion enabled. And i get 32+ FPS with MAD MAX with AA disabled and shadow on minimum rest maxed
My custom water block ( custom scratch build setup ) isnt that good. During intense use i get 60 degrees already and if i increase vcore further i will hit 70s which i really dnt want to. Though in winter it would be hell fun as i have a bong radiator and winter drop about 10 degree ambient temp here
I know with respect to time i have pretty old pc. I just recently moved from e8400 to q6600.
E8400 was at 4005 MHz and it was giving me more FPS in gta V then my new q6600 @ 3402 MHz. The quad have though removed the texture missing problem completely and i think this is the reason for low FPS. Still the game is playable at 28+ Fps most of the time.
And i love my p5e WS pro. First i thougt that i had a really good e8400 that at 4GHz needed 1.336 V only to be stable but...
CPU : Q6600 @ 3.4GHz
Mobo: P5e WS pro
I have an option in bios by the name of CPU voltage reference ! It has Auto option and something like 0.63x, 0.61x, 0.59x.
I tried digging but most of the P5e WS pro users have left it at auto for overclocking and no details were found
The only thing i found was that its same as CPU GTL Voltage Reference but m not a 100% at this. And i dnt know what CPU GTL Voltage Reference is even.
Q1. So someone please tell me what is...
I cant play with copper at all. I only have copper plates from the GX 280 hsf baseI dnt have a good drill machine and dnt have any cnc or drill press option available near.i can cut acrylic in almost any possible shape to make a pathway for water.That spray like thing can be easily made by acrylic but my pump is really bad cause m using an aquarium pump so it wont like push water that good.So i am left with design A i guess.And all i have is air in my pockets now a days so...
Thanks any better design idea ?I forgot to mention in the post that i cant change the copper area the water path will be created by using plastic wall like structure so will the Design "A" still be better then the current design i am using ?
Its for lga 775
with current design temperatures are ( CPU core 2 duo E8400 )
Ambient 34 c
idle cpu 44 c
load cpu 58 c
The base is made up of copper the black line in the following pic. above that is water container part of the block made of acrylic and above that is where i have attached barbs.
The copper plate has mirror finish on the side that touches the processor and 120 grit sanded side, the one that touches the flowing water.
i hope its helps to understand what...
