I7-960 Watercooled high temp ???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey , I was wondering if my actual temp is good I have some watercooling on my CPU and my GPU i have bough recently a good system and i just upgrade from the 920 ( same if its only stock speed wich make the diff between two of those wathever ) and idle temp turn around 41-43 for CPU Core 0 : 40-42 Core 1 : 38-40 Core 2 : 43-45 Core 3 : 36-38 . My personal feeling is that it's kinda high for a watercooled system on a CPU but i want some other opinion ! Thanks for your answer !

What you failed to mention is your ambient temps, those can play a big role in your idle temps. Not to mention, idle temps don't really tell us anything. It's your temps at load that matter.

In my room it's not really we have air conditionning setting normally to 23-24c . I've run a couple of stress/burn-in and after 1hr it can go to 55c max and im doing hardest test as i can so to load it much as i can .Hope it's better

decent temps. your idle seems a little high but load isn't bad.
post #5 of 7
You haven't really said much about your setup???

Tube size ID.
Pump
Size of rad & res
water block

Yep, those are nice load temps, & the idle temps may be because your (if), running 1 loop, and your getting your heat from your GPU??? Maybe???
Just a guess???

Tube : 1/2 ID
Pump : PMP-450S from Koolance ( Laing D5 pump )
Rad : Triple 120 mm rad ( Danger Den Black Ice GTX 360 ); 2200 RPM 90 cfm x 3 fans
Res : Ek Waterblock Plexi EK-BAY Spin dual bay
Waterblock : Koolance CPU-370 , Koolance VID-NX580 ( for gtx570/580 )

Well i don't think it could be this , my actual loop is :
Res -> Pump -> CPU ->GPU -> Rad -> Res
And my Gpu is actully lowest than my CPU and it's a Gtx 570 OC

oh well i think i found what was the problem at least the main problem of it , the cpu block was too much screwed to the cpu itself so the thermal paste just got blew away so it was a direct contact from the cpu and the block idle temp is around 36-38 for the cpu , Core 0 35-37c Core 1 33-35 Core 2 40-42c Core 3 32-34c looks fairly good now
