Is this decent water temperature? - Page 6

post #51 of 58
Thread Starter 
I will turn around the 12 cm rear fan, and change the polarity of the 230mm fans, so the front one will expel air and the top ones will pull fresh in.

Why change polarity is that I only have to do it on one splitter and turning those 230mm fans at top is a big job, since the shroud is attached to them, and are hard to unscrew

fan blades are curved/cupped, so you cant run a fan backwards and effectively move air, nice thought to save some time but....

You could just try just using rear as exhaust, maybe run front fan slower still as intake if that is difficult to turn around...might be better that way anyways.

I will try to get the cpu block mounted better first, so when that has been accomplished, I can flip the fans

I think these huge fans will perform better pulling air from the top of the case than pulling it through first the case, then the radiator

But anything I can do that makes the computer generate less heat when not in use, but can still do minor tasks like downloads etc?

It's not a big room it's in, and the window isn't very large, so it builds up heat in the room if it generates the kind of heat it does now.

Your room, when no doors/windows are open is a closed loop. Heat being generated by your PC, transferred to the radiator, and then converted into the air from the fans pushing air over the rad will heat up your room as long as you're running the PC at load. If there's no way for cool air to enter your room and/or for the hot air to leave, then you'll hit a wall with your temps as your room will be too hot for the WC loop to effectively work. Get a window fan or better yet, a window AC unit

The best way to reduce the heat is to enable AMD Cool N Quiet or Intel SpeedStep which reduces the CPU clock speed (and in some cases the voltage, don't recall which) when doing minor tasks or at idle. Also most recent Graphics cards have driver level throttling to reduce the clock and memory speeds to produce less heat when not in use as well. Take advantage of these features.

When the graphic cars is overclocked, it wont downclock.

I have the window open all the time, but only by the gap the window gives if the security lock is enabled on it.

I might have to see if I can get a bigger gap by some other means of anti intrusion lock, perhaps just a duct with a fan in it to the outside

I can see if I can get massive improvement by using both speedstep and non overclocking the gfx card when I go to sleep. I'm in the same room as the computer when I sleep.

Put your computer to sleep as well, mine goes into sleep mode if away for 20 mins, I hit space bar and Im up in 10 seconds or less. Or turn computer off when you sleep.

Yeah, but then I can't leave it on for downloads and such

C1E would leave it terribly unstable overclocked right?

I use speedstep and C-states on both of my Asus X58 boards (Sabertooth & i7-930 @ 4.2 GHz and Rampage Gene III & i7-950 @ 4.0 GHz) and both are absolutely stable. Vcore on Rampage goes pretty low when system is idling.
