Are these temps / my loop ok???

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I want to say thank you in advance to any replies, I have gotten soooo much help from everyone here at OCN over the time Ive been a member, and am very appreciative.

On to my dilemma...

So i was reading thru some of the comments left on the Futuremark scores for my Mountain Mods U2-UFO build, and someone said my temps were unusually high and that they were so because of my loop order. I was just hoping I could get some input as to whether or not there is anything to that, or if my temps are fine and I just got an extremely rare spot of OCN advice

Here is the pc that was commented on.. Underneath is each loop listed in order..



Loop 1:
RES -> PUMP -> MOSFET -> MOSFET II -> NB/SB -> CPU -> RAD1 (swiftech 120mm) -> RAD2 (swiftech RX360 3x120mm) -> RES

Loop 2:
RES -> PUMP -> GPU1 -> GPU2 -> RAD1 (swiftech 2x120mm) -> RAD2 (swiftech RX360 3x120mm) -> RES


Thanks again in advance for the help..

First off, loop order does not really effect temperatures at all; everything will come to equilibrium sooner or later.

Second, your temperatures look fine to me; you might be able to get your CPU down a bit by re-seating your block. Considering you're staying under 80*, I wouldn't even bother.

What bl1nk said is true. You might be able to get a little better temps by putting the radiator after the pump though. The pump also puts heat in the loop.

Your voltage also appears to be a little high for 4.0ghz. But if that's what it takes to get that speed so be it.

Ya unfortunately im runnung a C0 stepping cpu... the high volt is sadly needed..

i will give some thought to re-ordering the loop... thank you for your input guys..

Loop order doesn't really matter except for the pump after the reservoir and below the reservoir.

Loop #1 : Maybe you should rearrange the Rads

RES -> PUMP -> RAD2 (swiftech RX360 3x120mm) -> MOSFET -> MOSFET II -> NB/SB -> CPU -> RAD1 (swiftech 120mm) -> RES

Loop #2 Looks fine, maybe put a Radiator before the blocks and one after

RES -> PUMP -> RAD1 (swiftech 2x120mm) ->GPU1 -> GPU2 -> RAD2 (swiftech RX360 3x120mm) -> RES


And like you said , you CPU temps are high because of the C0 stepping and you have no choice to pump up the voltage, I guess with your Cooling solution, with a D0 stepping you might get to 4.4 Ghz easily with less voltage and lower temperature.


What I suggest to you is put everything in one loop, with the pumps in serial.

What kind of pumps do you have?



PS: Do you mean XSPC RX360 and RX240 ?? If so, you have a really good watercooling system.

Thanx for the response firstly,

The pumps are swiftech MCP655 and getting a double top and running in searies is something I thought about.. But again, people told me it would not affect temps drastically enough to shell out the money.. (especially considering the money im sinking into the rampage build )

C0 stepping sucks.. But of course, like the idiot I am, I bought my chip before my OCN research uncovered that little gem of info..

**takes a moment to facepalm**

And yes, silly me, they are XSPC's as you listed them respectively... I must have just copy-pasted to fill in the list and didnt think...

(i tend to do that) **takes another moment to facepalm**

So , do you think it would be worth the money and work to rearrange the loop and series the pumps??

If you do, you'll probably save a lot of tubing and you'll be able to rearrange your loop easily and place the Radiators where you want. You already have the pumps and your pumps will be more than enough for a single loop.

What kind of reservoir do you have a do you use D5 Tops for your pump?

i have an EK dual loop RES...

the RADS can only fit where they are unfortunately unless i get a pedestal, its kinda cramped in there..

You don't need to move them, that's not what I meant. I meant changing the order in the loop.

You can always sale your reservoir and get a single loop reservoir with EK Dual D5 Top.

Is your GPU at 50'C idle?
