Magicool Rad's - Page 3

post #21 of 28
I have a magicool 240 rad. and while i was using this I was unable to acieve good temps. I would idle at 45-50C always, and no matter what efforts i made to improove temps it was useless. Everything was assembled the right way and all air was out of the system. I quickly changed to a coolgate 360 rad and temps dropped to 30C idle. This was at 4.2GHz. I beleve the radiator was the cause(although i had difficult beleving so in the begining).

You had a 240 rad and were surprise at the high temps but then got 360 and were happy with the reduction? You got a radiator with a higher thermal performance. Of course they were going to be lower??

at stock settings i would have expected any 240mm rad to be sufficient for cooling a CPU loop only, the magicool gave me no room for OC due to high temps all-round. The one I have now(coolgate) keeps my CPU cool even at 4,2GHz... I cant recomend you a magicool based on my personal experiences.

It should have been enough, I was running a P II 940 @3.8Ghz paired with a 3870x2 (855Mhz/1900) on a single 240 w/ push/pull not so long ago and i had more than decent temps for that setup: ~30C Idle/~55C Load for the cpu and ~39C Idle/ ~47C load on the gpu, also later i had 245 (3.9Ghz @ 1.5v) paired with a 2900xt (925Mhz/1900Mhz - 1.27v on the core if i remember correctly) on the same MagiCool 240Extreme radiator and the cpu never got above ~30C while the 2900xt stayed at a nice ~45C load temps (around 25C ambien temps). Also on my current loop setup with the cpu @ 3.9/1.42v (...oldie sb600.. heh) and the 6850 @ 915Mhz/4200 with 1.175v on the core my cpu never goes above 33C (highest core temp) while the gpu hardly ever goes above ~44C while gaming (all fans on low rpm).

Thats the sort of information I like to here. This does seem to coincide with what the testing has shown as well.

@zoid.srg

Maybe you just were unlucky and had a defective radiator. From what I read, the Magicool slim series is not much different in terms of performance than the MCR series and these are known quite well for being good.

might be true. I found it difficult to beleve that the radiator was to blame.

Skaboy -- tried to reply to your PM but it says your box has reached its quota!

I said:

It really doesn't make too much of a difference with the order. Just go with what makes the most sense and allows the cleanest run of tubing. Placing a rad before and after your components might help out a bit in that case. The generally agreed-upon consensus is that the loop temps generally stabilises after a while making loop order less important as it heats up to 'running temp', as the temp difference between your coolant before and after the blocks isn't huge - your goal is just to make sure the overall loop temp doesn't continually rise/keep it as close to ambient as possible.

You'll be good to go with that loop order
