I know im doing something wrong (watercooling temps)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im using a HK v 3.0 watercooling cpu with a Koolance Gtx 580 waterblock in a single loop. I have 1 240 gtx rad with 3000rpm fans in a pull config. I also have 1 XSPC 360 rad with a push/pull config using AP-15's.

Idle temps im getting: 40-41ish

Prime95 (soon as i start it up): temps jump to 68-69.

What am i doing wrong? I know these temps are way to high. I just changed out the water today and reapplied some thermal compound (1 dot in middle of block)

  1. Is this on your i7 920 @ 4GHz?
  2. What cooling were you running before and what temps did you have?
  3. What are your ambient temps? (Just a rough idea if not an exact figure)
  4. Which thermal compound are you using?

I would kinda expect it to idle around that temp @ 4GHz although I don't know much about water cooling.

Are you measuring temps with the correct TJ MAX? That could make your readings out by 5 or 10 which would obviously put them into a more comfortable range.
