XSPC raystorm mounting/new loop overheating

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok guys got my first loop together and it is running a little warmer than it should I think. Loop is 655 with EK top, 360 GTX extreme, AP-15s, and a Raystorm block. The problem I am having is the i7 920 is getting to 65-67C under load in Prime and Folding. It is clocked at 190x21. I figure it is one of two things, air in the system or improper block mount. I have tilted the case in every possible way and am getting no more air.

So that leaves me with improper mounting. I was not sure how tight to get the jam nuts so I turned them several times and have a good amount of pressure on them. After looking at it today I realize that the block top piece is bowed. Does this affect the TIM under the block? Also when I was putting the TIM on the chip I got a little more than I should have , will that have an affect of temp? Instead of a grain of rice I think I have several grains worth. If I end up pulling the block off are there signs of improper mounting in the TIM? Thanks guys

Oh ok, I figured it would be lower since it was the only thing on a 360 radiator. Again this is my first loop so I may have been expecting to much.

That's exactly what I'm thinking.
You said 'Load' so that should be okay, but if those were you Idle temps you should have something to be worried about.

Take a look at this "paste" replacement:

Most reviews have shown that it is a superior way to provide heat transfer between the cpu and cooling block (air or H2O).

Your temps are fine. I'm an i7 920 @ 4ghz as well and I'm hitting right around the 70-72c range. 360 Rad as well but I'm using the XPSC RASA which isn't as good as yours

Temps don't seem too bad.

I'm using an i5 750 at 190x21 @ 1.425V.

Idle: 34-37°C
Load: 64-68°C (Prime95 custom, 8k, 8k, run in place)

That's with an EX240, AP-13's, and D5 Vario @ 1900RPM.

Martinm210 reports similar results with a 2600K.

Ok guys thanks for the responses. I guess after I thought about it I realized I am running a solid 25-30 degrees cooler than on air. And while folding and playing games it runs even cooler. Folding is mid 50s and gaming is mid-upper 40s. Guess I was just expecting more and got worried since it was my first loop. Man its nice not having an air cooler screaming all the time.

I was looking at your machine and noticed we are running the same cpu and mb. Is your i7 a c0 or d0 chip? I can't find many people with this mb and a c0 chip. I can get a rock solid stable 180x21 but the 185 is less stable and the 190 is hardly stable at all for long in Prime. I don't know what the settings at the bottom of the voltage screen in BIOS are so they are all on auto. I hear alot of talk on vdroop on other boards but not sure what I need to do with that on this one.

I'm running a D0 Chip but the temps are not much different between them. The only thing that's affected is how much voltage it takes for an overclock. I'm pumping a little more volts then I ought to, but as long as I'm around 70c, I don't mind.

EDIT: Didn't read all of your posts. On that board, it's best to keep at a 20x multiplier than a 21x multiplier.

Try 190x20
