He should be at 50-60C with that loop. (more toward 50 with those ambients)

It seems that his 230mm fans up top aren't getting enough air through the rad. I'd suggest scrapping the stock fans and mounting some decent 120mm to the rad directly (or with a shroud).

Also, what is the point of running the pump below max? Silenece? Have you tried running it at full speeds to see if that helps to drop the temps a bit?

Forgot to mention that the last readings was with the pump on full speed.

Now I have borrowed a camera, but I have to copy all the pictures off it, and clean the whole thing. He has kids... And the objective lens cover is gone so that says some of how he has treated it xD

I have to try some different things here with the loop, might be air in the radiator. I'm thinking about draining the system and fill it up again, so I can get some of that horrible green color away before I will add some new stuff to the loop. Which then again I have to drain it again xD

I might add a 120mm fan in the rear to blow cold air below the radiator, and see if that helps push more air through. (I have several laying around, Scythe GT's)

The radiator is 3x 140mm sized btw.

Looks pretty nice! Do you not have enough room to mount fans directly to the 3x140 rad directly to push the air through?

Not like it is now, I will see if I can do anything with that

But can I have one fan that assists in push in the middle of the radiator? xD

Amd chips have a sensor issue, so therefore it appears they run cooler. 70c isn't that high for an intel chip, but it isn't exactly optimal. I'd say a good load temp for water cooling an intel chip is 60-65c.

Perhaps I should add this radiator and two of those fans instead of 1 in the front

Link

I'm thinking about going through the whole setup, and also see if I can fix the cpu mounting tomorrow (it's 00:14 here now).

Please, try to educate yourself in WC matters before making a mess of things. GPU are hell easier to cool than cpu's.

Guys, we all missed it

The problem is very clear: if, at idle, you have a Delta of 6ºC (as OP stated) with a 420mm rad, then something is obviously WRONG.

In this particular case the fans are not even attached to the radiador and are not designed to withstand restriction.

So, a few good fans will suffice the situation no problem, there is no need to get more stuff; what surprises me is that temps aren't that bad for his particular configuration.

--

So, I would just go and buy some decent 140mm fans and be done with it. There is nothing funky except the way you are using your fans on your rad.

Martin, any recommendations regarding 140mm fans for rad usage?

I did all this to get a silent system with some cooling power and yet be quiet, and a little original and creative

But these fans are case fans, they don't provide much static pressure if thats the right term here. Case fans are designed for not much air resistance through the case. But I thought that since these fans were so big, that might not show up as a problem.

So I obviously don't get good performance like how it's now. It could be that the radiator has air or that the dye which was in the system before has degraded the dissipation performance of the radiator in some way.

This is my first WC. But judging from the reservoir temperature probe, and the buildup of stuff on it, might that occur in the radiator as well?

But if I could get some good 140mm fans, that are on par with 120mm when considering performance and yet able to obtain silence, I will go for pull push with them most likely. With these 230mm on full power with the radiator, it seems that they loose all the properties they have concerning being silent.


Oh, and the radiator has a shroud I have made that might not be ideal like how it is now.

I will review the system, cause I also have to chase down the cpu problem. I am curious why it occurs and try to gain some experience from it
