Tired of "My First Watercooling" threads?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Too bad, heres another.

Let me qualify this by saying i know my hardware is not too impressive. I mainly undertook this project to familiarize myself with the process. My next build will be more worthy of such a set-up.
This XSPC rs360 kit is being paired up with an XSPC razor 6970 full cover block.

rs360 came nicely packaged and undamaged. Thanks FrozenCPU-


Fittings in the kit were a dark chrome color, very nice-


The XSPC razor package was also packed well and undamaged, thanks Jab-tech-


Installed properly (i hope)-


Nice and purdy-


Here is something interesting i found-

^^^
Looks like this could of been the cause of my 80*c load temps with the stock cooler. Stuff was hard as concrete and would not come off with alcohol. Also looked like too much was applied.

An initial mock up-


After flushing and some more preparations were ready to fill it up-


No leaks after running it overnight. Took some tilting and cycling of the pump to get rid of the bubbles, i assume this was because the rads fittings being at the bottom.

All done, and a little dusty-

-


Not sure how i feel about that blue LED, might need to go find some red ones.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Temps" Air-
Hyper 212+ CPU, reference 6950 cooler.

CPU idle- 12-14*c
CPU load- 28*c

GPU idle- 36*c
GPU load- 78-78*c


"Temps" h20-
CPU idle- 10-12*c
CPU load- 23*c

GPU idle- 25*c (awesome)
GPU load- 38*c ( super awesome)

(cpu @ 3.5 --- GPU @ 875/1250 on air and water)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

One thing that needs to go are the fans that come with the kit, quite loud above 50%.

All and all im quite pleased with the kit, and myself
Thanks for looking guys.

10-12c idle on water... uhh? Is that possible? Lol. I'm assuming he means 10-12c above ambients. Otherwise your house is freezing cold... below 50F?

Looks like a kink over the left barb of the GPU.

I personally dislike any water cooling that has components outside of the case. I just think they are ugly.

But anyways, different strokes for different folks. Other than those temps not seeming possible, it looks like you are getting some good results.

yea i think he meant 12-14C above ambient

unless he lives in an igloo in Alaska (12C = 53.6F)

an igloo can be up to 61F (16C) on the inside

Heh, you know that is something ive been meaning to ask about. Always have seemed low but seems to fluctuate normally with load and fan speed.


Maybe the temps themselves are wrong, but the delta is correct.
MB problem? Or the software?
