AMD FX-8150 H80 Cooler question - Page 4

post #31 of 67
Iv got a plan to make up a air box/filter which will be mounted outside with 2X 3M 140mm Air ducting. 1 will Go to the radiator and the other will go to the side of the case which will be feeding gfx card and fan on mosfets/nb.

Box will be made up by 2 square pieces of wood which make the small side panels. Then it will have 4 beams connecting the 2 sides in each corner with 6X 120mm fans mounted on the inside of the beam parts and the bottom. With the top being saved for mounting the air ducting too. It will then be covered with some stockings to work as a filter.

Here is a quick draw up of the new design im planing.
338


Here is my current design Mk 2
Made from a 6 pack of cans box.
Has 4 X 80 mm fans mounted on the side holes.
Bottom hole is completely cut out.
And is covered in a old stocking as a filter.
450

The 4X fan provided enough suction to force air down the ducting so when my PC is idle the radiator fans turn off which triggers all the other fans to turn off as well (PSU GFX card being the exception)
So all the noise is contained to outside.

If this still doesn't work then there is either air in your cooling system or your chip is bad. Either I would return whatever one is not working correctly. There is defnitely something wrong. These temps should not be nearly this high. You should not be passing 45C under load with H80 at that voltage.

hey i was looking at the photos of your system, i noticed that your cooler hoses are up top.....mine are the other arround would that make any difference in the performance ??

No there is no difference. I talked to corsair about this and they said it doesn't matter which way you put it. The reason I put the hoses up top so they would be out of the way and look neet. Corsair said they usually put their hoses up top too. There is no difference in performance. They did say to make sure that you have fresh outside air blowing through the rad rather than the case air. This does increase cooling performance as long as room temp is cooler than case temp.

I will get some more pics of my setup because I have made some changes since then. Will update soon. I also have the results of different fsb, cpu/nb, and ht clocks that I want to share with you guys but I have to figure out the best way to do it cause there are a lot of results. I ran 3 cinebench tests for each different setting.

ok cool, thanx a lot for the info.....i put everything back to stock, the cpu clock, voltage, back to normal, i still idle 32c cpu and under load still goes up past 45c core past 55c cpu, voltage 1.3v, so how can i tell if its the cpu or the cooling unit is the problem ??

First make sure that the water block is seated right on the chip. If that is okay and you are sure that the thermal paste is spread evenly over the whole chip. Then uninstall the water cooler and roll in around a little. Listen for air bubbles in the cooling unit. You might be able to shake it a little and free up the air. You want to try to get the air to float to the very top of the rad. Then try to reinstall and see if that fixes the problem. If that does then it is your cooler that needs replaced.

The best way to find out what it is I think would be to install the stock cooler and see what your temps are then. I dont think that it is your chip. I think that there is something else causing it to get hot. Either its not sitting flush on the chip or too little or too much thermal paste or there is air in your cooler or their may be something else wrong with the cooler. You do have the H80 set to high right? How do you have the fans oriented on the rad?

I would definitely make sure that it is not something else before you replace the chip. If the stock voltage on your chip is 1.3v then it should be a fairly good BD. Let me know how this goes but I would hold off as long as you can and make sure that it is not something else that is causing low cooling performance.

ok ill try the stock cooler to see how that goes and what the temps are, i'm even curious to see for myself. yes i do have my H80 set on high even the pump show 2000 rpm and i'm pulling air in from outside through the radiator going in the case. the 2 top 200mm fans of my HAF X are pulling hot air out and so is the side 200mm fan pulling hot air out. ill get back to you when i try the stock cooler, not sure if ill do that tonight but ill let you know !! thanx again

yeah stock cooler is pretty much a joke.....under load cpu temp is 63c core temp is 51c. i re installed the H80, this time i put the hoses up top and a little less thermo paste i'm also using evercool sidewinder thermal compound, they made it look like 4 little rockets seringe things taking off in the package, the reviews on it seemed fine !! under load this time on the cpu i got 47c and core temp i got 32c....and that is at stock clock. My voltage is set at 1.3 and under load it drops to 1.22v !! anyways ill leave it at that for now and in the future i'm probebly going to try a custom water cooling system, that will probebly fix it. If not then its really the CPU !!

what is your room temps?

also, what are you using to run the cpu at load?

i'm not sure what the temp is in here but it's comfortable for me and i hate the heat so its probebly about 20 or 22c, its -10 outside tho !! I'm using Prime95 on the blend setting !! I turned the side fan arround on an my HAF X so it blows air out and its pretty cool air comming out !!

I just tried it with BurnIn Test for about 10 min. and temps are lower why is that ?? i was at 43c CPU and 30c core !!
