i think this is a bad setup

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
im new to the whole water cooling thing ill try n post some pics of my set up. when i was looking at my cpu temps in the bios it says that my amb temp was 45c and my cpu temp was 55c, im thinkin not bad a 10 degree difference, but when i check the temp when windows 7 loads it jumps to 79c 80 when playing team fortress 2 with speedfan installed. i have the ek- bay spin res amd the dcp 2.2 pump also from ek, Swiftech MCR220-QP Cooler Radiator and the Swiftech APOGEE-XT Extreme Performance CPU Waterblock. can someone tell me what i may be doing wrong?



my computer is a intel i7 first gen, mobo intel bx58so ( it sucks i wanna get an evga tri sli board) 2 evga gtx 460s, and the case is the corsair 800d.

did your apogee come with thermal grease (tim) already on it? if so, did you take the plastic film off (i know its a dumb question, but i almost forgot to do it on mine)? do you have any kinks in your loop that would restrict waterflow?

if you go to user cp then system, you can edit your system details so its easier to see all your hardware, etc.

welcome to ocn!
