Funny scenario watercooling install

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Today i went to a computer store to pick up my watercooling pc , and i told the technician i want to check the idle temperature after finished install watercooling...becuse i want to see how was the temperature goes on water since i oc my i7 950 to 4.2ghz ... and when we enter the cpuid hwmonitor in windows , i saw awful numbers for idle temperature 67c 65c 64c 63c ... those numbers were not definitely correct or even pleased.. so i told to the technician ... there must be something wrong with your installation or something else.... but he told me those numbers were correct.... i was like how is that possible??...and i was little bit piss off and i dont wanna argue him , but i am very insist .... i told him on water idle temps definitley wont see over 60c , even higher than 45c is not right anymore... and then he asked me if i have thermal compound or not.... i told him yes i have one , so he told me to bring it tomorrow and he will try to reset for me..... man this made me feel that technician just unprofessional...... and also the weird thing was, my motherboard was lga1366 .... he order thermaltak's watercooling for my rig , isnt it not so many people using thermaltke's watercooling now?? becuse most of people are using xspc rasa 750 now for watercooling.... so what should i do right now? because i am a watercooling noob , i dont want to screw my rig if i install by myself.... thanks

I'd get a refund if he can't install it properly. It's not very hard to do it yourself, it just takes lots of patience. As long as you do a proper leak test then not a lot can go wrong. I never get idles above 30C with my OC of 4.5GHz so above 60 is practically impossible if its installed properly.

As long as you use distilled water then not a lot can go wrong if something leaks. Just please dont use coloured coolant, the person who had my rad before me used some red dye over a year ago and it's still leaking out of there.

OP: If you built your computer, or heck, even know what thermal paste is, then you're likely very able to build a watercooling setup. The trick with building a watercooling setup is to leak test, as was mentioned before. Usually the parts to leak are fittings, not really the hose barbs, so it's not due to your fault generally, as fittings from different manufactures all fit differently. I had one leak on my last install because of how different the fitting was from others that I had used elsewhere in my build.

You fill the loop very slowly, you check for leaks, you pull, prod, and twist by hand, you check for leaks. If none, you unhook your PSU from all of your components except the pump, jump your power supply by shorting with a paperclip or whatever the green pin (fourth one in from one of the sides) to the black next to it (third pin from the side), watch for leaks, if no leaks, let it run 24 hours, boom, done.

You can build it yourself. Just post here @ OCN if there's something you don't understand. Other members will even guide you through all the steps.

Yes, the thing is after the technician help me to set up my watercooling, and when we check the temperature together .... it shows my 4 cores were all higher 60c with idle temp and cpu temperature around 60c , thats impossible since watercooling already install ........ and he told me those temps are normal.... anyway i dont know what to say ... but i just feel they are totally unprofessional
