Temps in the right ballpark?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Just a quick temp check to all the watercooling gurus out there, had this setup running for the past week and was wondering if my temps are ok.

Setup:

CPU: i7 930 w/ EK Supreme HF block slight oc to 3.6
GPU: 2x GTX 470 w/ EK nickel waterblocks moderately oc'd
Rad: XSPC 480 up top and XSPC 240 below.
Fans: yate loon high speeds in a push/pull setup on both rads

Temps:

Ambient: 26c

CPU idle: 36c 33c 35c 33c
CPU load: 52c 49c 49c 48c

GPU #1 idle: 30c
GPU #2 idle: 30c
GPU #1 load: 41c
GPU #2 load: 43c

These about average considering the ambient temps?

Temps look good. Are you going to ramp up the overclock now? Btw, do you run with the case open?

Yeah my goal is to get to 4ghz eventually, and Ill try and squeeze some more out of the cards as well.

The case does have the door I just took it off for the photo, its a shot from my old setup but the door is the same:

Yeah airflow in this case was a bit of a challenge at first haha. My 240 rad intake is on the bottom of the case and those door fans do a decent job feeding air to the upper rad.

temps are ok, normal.... getting about the same but higher on load but I am also @ 4.2Ghz

what are you using to load?

I hit 62c max while folding on smp 100% on all cores (8)

that 930 should be @ 4.2+

I think your temps are great.

Prime95 is fine, just wondering really. I Prime and see the same as folding so, but I also fold longer (24/7 if not gaming) then I do Prime95 tests for.

I used IntelBurnTest for quick bench test to check to make sure my system is stable but it will not pound the temps
