Is this decent water temperature?

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
I have runned the system on full load on both the cpu and gpu for at least 30 minutes, and I get max 37c water temperture at 25c ambient.

The Cpu gets quite hot if I'm not mistaken, max 78c in Real Temp with a Apogee GT, where I have to find where the problem lies.

This is the gpu

Gpu is a XFX HD 5870 XXX edition, which is stock 875/1300 (850/1200 otherwise)

Cpu is 2.67@4.2HT 1.2875 vcore.

I didn't run the pump on full, but is this a good water temperature,
does the radiator do a good job in how it's configured now?

Oh, I forgot to mention, that the water temperature is ~30c on idle

Assuming the water temps are accurate, I wouldn't be at all happy with them in my system.

How is your airflow through the radiators and case set up?
What kind of fans?

Any pictures?

With that kind of water temp I'd say you need more radiator space or faster fans on your existing rad or both.

Take you pump into account when looking at more rads btw, you wont want to make your setup worse by making it too restrictive and killing the flow.

78C is very hot for the cpu under water. What is your loop order and what radiator(s) are you using?
