May I join the club? Just got this fella last week for about 52 bucks from performance PCS to replace my Phobya UC 2LT because I wanted some bling!

post #1423 of 2241
Hey guys, new here and thought i would post in here. I bought a raystorm 750 ex240 kit from frozen cpu about 2-3 weeks ago. So far its pretty good. I bought it for a computer i am going to build but thought i would throw it on my current crappy computer for fun. Its a 2.8ghz AMD dual core. With the original stock cooler, running prime 95 it would hit 75*C nothing flat. With this kit, i can run two prime95s and rarely see above 45*C, so big improvement. But Ive been having a weird issue with the pump/reservoir. I will make a slight hum/buzz, so i got the first one replace (frozencpu was great with replacing it), and now the second one ran nearly silent for about an hour then starting making the same noise. I was careful when filling it. I filled the entire system up as much as i could without turning it on with the supplied jumper. I would jump it on for a few seconds for it to push some fluid through, and repeated till it was full. But it still makes the noise. Has anyone else dealt with multiple pumps making noise? If so, how did you remedy it? Sorry for the long post. Hopefully i get a long healthy life from the system, because it seems to work pretty well. thumb.gif


PS: I do have a video of the noise, if anyone wants me to post it so they can here it, i certainly can.

I just got my first ever watercooling loop going. It was pretty exciting to take my full load GTX 670 from 68C to 34C and take out the damn hairdryer noise to boot. Unfortunately, my Raystorm is not behaving nearly as well.

I upgraded from an H80i which was cooled with two Noctua 120mms. They're not great for radiators but they still did decently for me. I had my i5-3570k only occasionally hitting 80C at 4.6GHz and 1.26V. Average was mid 70's. I'm part of GIMPS and I run Prime95 24/7.

After "upgrading" to a Raystorm in a custom loop that has not yet allowed my GTX 670 to hit 35C, my CPU temperatures hit 90C in about a minute, where I stop the test. Also, even at idle, my CPU temperatures fluctuate from 30C to as high as 50C and back down again.

I reseated the block. No effect.

I switched my tubing to get the inlet and outlet correct (whoops...). No effect (sadly).

The reseating went really badly so I might try it again but I don't have a great feeling about it. While I'm at it, I'll check for that extra plastic film. I'll try a different thermal compound too. I'm using some GELID extreme stuff on the CPU currently, which is the same as on the GPU so I kind of want to rule out the TIM? I donno. Does anyone else have any ideas?

bad seat, air bubble, too much tim.
did you thoroughly clean everything your parts before building the loop?

Details of your loop would be nice, and you also have to remember that while both the cpu and gpu are under load your cpu will run hotter in comparison to when you had it under a H80i because of the added heat of the gpu...

no not really. i was using an h100 and am/was still 5* cooler on the cpu. it should never be hotter under water unless you have insufficient rad space.
we need to know ambient temp, full rig and loop specs. cpu temps are just plain too high. should never idle at 50* unless ambient is 40- 45* C or so.

Aight. Nothing I hadn't considered yet but thanks. I'll pay special attention to the TIM when I reseat. I don't think I put in that much, but I might try a bit less since I don't know what else to try.

I cleaned both surfaces thoroughly before installing for the first time and before reseating. I never took the waterblock apart, though, to clean the inside. Is that something I should have considered?

Is an air bubble INSIDE the CPU block possible? How do I deal with it?

Dual 5.25 inch bay res + D5 Pump --> 360mm rad, push fans only --> i5-3570k, 4.6 GHz, 1.26V --> 120mm rad, push pull fans --> GTX 670 --> Res

I will disagree on that point. I don't think the GPU is putting in so much heat that it would affect the CPU in a significant way. With 480mm worth of radiators I would imagine it can more than dissipate the extra heat from the GPU. On top of that, the max temperature on the GPU after several hours of full load is still 34C so the coolant doesn't heat up considerably between the computer being turned off to equilibrium.

My H80i tubing was lukewarm to the touch after several hours of full CPU load, but the air coming out of my rad is still cool.

Ambient temp is around 23C.


Thanks so far, guys!

i didnt want to repeat tubing on wrong ports,ie in on out out on in, or the plastic still being on the bottom. also possible a piece of delrin is stuck un block but very very doubtful. really, it cant be a whole lot of things.

If you had the inlet and outlet reversed, then fixed it and saw no difference in temperature you've got a big problem. Try taking the waterblock apart and inspecting the channels. Something is big-time wrong with your loop.

Why do you say the reseating went badly?
