new watercoooling setup = higher temps?!!!!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
ok so my friend needed a quick fix as his pump blew up so i gave him my old all in one pump and reservoir as i had my swiftech setup begging to be installed.

ive installed both and have the same basic setup as before. in this order..

pump - reservoir - cpu - radiator - pump

im using feser aqua bi-distilled water. i was using feser one but this was dyed and the swiftech pump disagrees with dye according to the instructions

i started fresh on first boot by restoring bios defaults and checking to see if the plumbing was ok and the computer ran fine (hasnt been turned on in 2 weeks) windows booted and i left it for an hour. restarted and overclocked to all my old settings. exactly the same as before and booted to windows. opened cpu-z to check, all numbers seem good. open core temp and i had 100 - 121 degrees c across all 4 cores!! with some lag opening and closing simple programs. decided to shut down and reset bios. my q6600 is now stock but core temps are 45 - 55 degrees which is about 10-15 degrees higher that i had at idle on my old overclock!

i can hear the pump churning through a few bubble. the res is about 3/4 full and im expecting any bubbles to work there way out in a few days but does anyone know why my temps are so high at idle on stock???

many thanks in advance

wait, you have the pump pumping INTO the res?

the res needs to feel the pump directly so that when you first fill the loop, the pump sucks the water directly out of the res. you dont want air to be sucked through the pump at all.

you should post pics of the setup so we can help better.

its possible that the water isnt flowing or something.

Your reservoir has to come before the pump! To get rid of bubble gently tilt the case back and forth, but bubbles will persist if the res is not before the pump.

If you fix the order of your loop you should be fine. It should be water from the res feeding the pump, not the pump pushing water into the res like Skoobs said. I'm pretty sure that is your issue.

a pic wouldnt help im afraid. i still need to find time to upgrade to a twin fan so everything is jammed in with tube everywhere.

i may not have written the flow direction right. but the manual states that the pump inlet needs to be connected to the reservoir discharge, with nothing inbetween, which it is.

lets try again. reservoir outlet - pump inlet/outlet - rad - cpu - reservoir inlet

hows that?

reservoir outlet -> pump inlet/outlet -> cpu -> rad -> reservoir inlet ->

I'm not 100% sure but if rad is before CPU, you will be storing warm water in your res...and you don't want that.

Thats correct. I think you just wrote it wrong the first time. Its kind of hard to mess up a pump/res combo. It only really works one way.

as for your temps, try reseating your block. Try another go at laying paste. Make sure your radiator fans are spinning. Make sure you got allllll the air out of your radiator. any air in there will cause major temp issues. Air compresses, and since its in the radiator, it will defeat your flow characteristics.

Try these and let us know.

EDIT: The placement of your radiator after your cpu will help, but over all wont cause such high temps. There is another problem. It only really effects your cpu temps about 5 -10 degrees max. It would not allow 100 degree temps if there were no other issues.

Once again. If everything else was perfect, a radiator after your cpu block would not allow 100 degree temps. (Unless your running a 990x Oc'd to like 6 ghz, and running it on one 120.)

Sounds like air to me especially if the res is below the CPU block. try shutting it down while rocking it, then turn it back on.

^^^^^^ Correct. You should also check your thermal paste. Then make sure that your waterblock is seated correctly to the cpu.

yea sorry its been a long week and having been two weeks without a pc i was getting a bit impatient. the temp has dropped since i posted but only by 5 degrees. im hoping for a hell of a lot more as the new pump shifts more that double the water of the old one and im running stock (yawn)!

when i get in from work tomorrow I'll re-seat the block with a fresh drop of paste and leave it to idle for a few hours to hopefully clear anymore air thats trapped and let you know how the temps are doing then.

thanks for all the suggestions so far
