What temps can I expect with a WC loop - Page 2

Room temps 31oC


I'd die in temps like that, screw the computer I'd be running a few 360 rads on myself!


Those temps do seem quite high though, 25oC above ambient, Idle I would estimate I run 20oC above ambient with another 400MHz OC



I did just see, you are using a 20x multiplier on your OC, try dropping down to a 19x multi and increasing the baseclock more, odd multipliers tend to be more stable on those chips so you will probably get away with a much lower voltage to be stable. ~ What voltage are you running out of interest.

Looky over at the H50/H70 club thread, a lot of users claim 65-70c loads (really not that much better than a full custom WC loop so I might just stick with my H50)

What pump are you going to get?

The XSPC GPU waterblock is extremely restrictive. I would get an EK VGA Supreme instead for $10 more.



Also, if your going the universal-GPU waterblock route, MAKE SURE YOU ARE GOING TO GET VREG AND RAM PASSIVE COOLERS. What is the point of having a low GPU temperature when your VREGs are blowing up? That is almost like running liquid nitrogen on a CPU and having the motherboard without the north and south bridge coolers.

HAHAHA XD

Yup, that is my normal room temps for me, well Asian people

Well, I will follow your advice

Thanks!

Yes, of course I'm getting ramsinks...

XSPC outperforms EK VGA Supreme HF and is cheaper too

RAM heatsinks aren't as important as VREG coolers

Also, if I am not mistaken, last time I checked, that GPU block roundup was tested with the MCP355; a high head pressure pump. Make sure that your getting something of the MCP35_ series, if not the results would be worse than the EK VGA Supreme.. the restriction test was done with the 655. I can't imagine the results using that pump!

/thinks of bogus reason not to get XSPC VGA block
Well, whatever, in the end it is up to you... but I think the lower restriction and the EK name would help the resale value

There's something seriously wrong with your loop.

I think I'll stick with stock VRM cooling, and just buy some ramsinks.

I'm actually getting this pump/res combo, with the following specs:
Dimensions:149 x 100 x 85mm (WxDxH)
Pump performance:750 lph
Delivery head:1.8m
Voltage:12V (4pin)
