Your in P/P, so thats a great start thumb.gif

Are you intaking or exhausting through your rad?

Also, what fans and speeds are they?

Confirm your pump is also at full speed.

Which way is your H100 blowing?

p/p? sry new to forums lol tongue.gif
exhaust for both rads. so intake in front of case, exhaust top and back.
uhh not sure about fan speeds. i'm using the stock corsair ones (from h100) in push/pull (edit, they're plugged into the pump, idk does that make a difference?)
how would i do that? and should i plug my pump into my mobo, or just molex to fan?

sry i'm a real noob lol so i hav alot of questions tongue.gif

No probs thumb.gif

P/P = Push / pull. You have one fan pushing the air through the rad, the other fan is pulling the air out. This allows for fast air fllow, thus better cooling potiential.

Suggest, you intake through your GPU rad. That will give it cooler air to work with. Corsiar stock fans are good out of the box. You can get better ones but lets work with what we've got smile.gif

If you check with either BIOS or HWmonitor, it will tell you the RPM of any fan / pump hooked up through your mobo.

How do you have your pump and fans hooked up now?

lol my package *finally* arrived!!

first attempt, using amd bracket, as you can see with this last pic, the bracket ran into the heat plate and the cooler was not in full contact with the core.
i found out the hard way when i benchmarked and my temps spiked to 68c in the first 5 seconds..
needless to say, i'm gonna use the full on zip tie method. tongue.gif

450
450
fully zipped, and fully functional =D
450
it shiny =3 me happy =3
i'm very pleased with the aesthetic features of this mod, however i'm kinda disappointed with the temps =/
i'm idling at 33c, and benchmarking gets me 59c, which is only a 5c improvement over stock.
granted i'm running 1.175v 950/2300 (gtx 570) but i'm wanting more lol tongue.gif
you guys hav any suggestions to improve temps? fan placement ideas?

Remove the IHS. Best temps you'll ever get. And lapp the 620 on a glass surface with like 1000-2000grit sand paper.

ahahah i'm not that daring to remove the IHS sorry.
but lapping, does that improve temps alot?

Fan1 appears to be running at 907 - 924 rpm. If thats your H70 - its running at half speed. You may have plugged it into a 5v header. Find a 12v fan header and plug it in there.

Just find another fan header and check again. It should be running > 1500 rmp

How are you powering your pump?

Unless they have down graded their fans, I thought corsair stocks ran at 2000 rpm. What does the box say about the fan speed?

Is your pump plugged into a fan header.. coz I dont see it listed on HW monitor ???

Or maybe Fan1 is the pump and I dont see the fan... oh, Im confused redface.gif

says 1300 - 2600 rpm
and the pump is plugged into the mobo. the pump also has 2 outputs for fans.
