Max Temp For Water Cooling

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi guys and girls have been pondering for a while now, What is the max temp my liquid can reach. I read somewhere 60 degrees Celsius. If 100 degrees is boiling point im guessing that is a tad to hot. With 1 GPU @ 4.2 and a GTX 570 @ 900 core my max temps are 60.

I would guess pumps have a max operating temp I don't know what it is though. I don't think it matters as long as your cpu/vga are at workable temps. I'd think you'd hit their max before you hit the pumps max.

The pumps max operation temp is usually 50c, but the temps your getting at the sensors is the block temp. The water temperature is usually alot more cooler.

Yep, says 50'C operating temp on my MCP655 pump.

Based on your setup, if you are maxing load on both CPU and GPU, your water temperature is probably between 35-40c.

That high? My water temps max out at 32° with a delta of 2° before and after rads. I guess I can't see what rads he has, or what his ambient's are, but 35°-40° seems a bit high... Definitely not arguing with you though Angry, you're one of the few truly informed people on this forum.

My estimate of 40 was actually going off of the 31c I saw in an above post, not realizing it wasn't the OP. My bad smile.gif

That said, 35c isn't out of the question. I've seen my water temp hit 34.5 while running BOINC on CPU@5ghz and my GPU at 900 with 27c ambient. This time of year though, I can open my deck door and see my ambient at 20-22c, which drops my water temp below 30c at 100% load smile.gif

True, ambient makes a huge difference. I have all my computers in a closed office and can open the window most of the time, drops my ambients below 20°C and my water temps to 28°-29° at full CPU GPU load.
