Need more cooling! Pic inside

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

Well I need more cooling. I went for the fx-8150 and now what kept my 1100T under 44-45c loaded isnt good enough for bulldozers 8150! Loaded Im getting too close to 61c which amd says is max, at 1.45v w/load the cpu gets to 60c within 6-8mins. Can I tweek this setup I have? I wouldnt be able to convert to full custom anytime soon and was wondering if there is a cheap temporary fix I can do that I can also reuse when I go custom.

Things I was thinking were either a drive bay resivour, adding volumn should help slow the heat process down right? Or maybe a aftermarket cpu block. Im thinking fluid might just be moving too slow with these tiny lines. I wouldnt mind getting a different radiator but would need to put the tiny corsair/antec lines (cant remember the diameter right now)

Thanks!

P.S. This all started from a corsair h70, had I known water mods would have been this fun i would have went custom from the start!

it sounds like you need bigger tubing.....usually flow speed only changes a degree or so....i recommend bigger tubing and possibly leaving a side panel off if it comes to that.

Here are my fan arrangements too, I was trying to get cooler air into the first radiator up top. Red arrows indicate 1 fan. All fans are 120mm, top slots would hold a 140mm though. Lime green are open mesh areas. There is one intake fan on the side panel also not pictured
