Tempature check

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just finished my first water cooled build.

Using a RS360 kit,

RS360 with 3 cougar vortex fans in pull
RS240 with 4 cougar vortex fans in push/pull

CPU+GPU loop
CPU: Core i5-2500k overclocked to 4.5GHZ with 1.25vcore
GPU: GTX 560 TI with 900 core clock

While running furmark alone max GPU temp is ~45c
While running prime95 blend alone max CPU temp is ~65c

While running both at same time after 30 minutes is:
CPU - ~68c
GPU - ~50c

Normal or should I reseat the CPU?

PS: just running distilled water.

Seems normal. cpu seems a tad high, but it's probably since your thermal paste is still fresh so some cure time might lower it.

Okay, well my thermal paste is MX-4. I normally get good temps out of the gate making me think that my mount was bad because I used the spread method vs center dot and compression doing the spreading.

What TIM did you use on your CPU block? The GPU temps are nice, but the CPU seems off a bit. I have 1-360 rad for my w3680 in Paradox cooling my CPU and Motherboard, max temps on the CPU never go above 65C @ 4.2 w/ 1.35V(6 AP-15's in push pull though).

Ya if your using MX-4 it may just be a bad seating, far as I know it doesn't require a certain time like some TIMs do. Is your backplate on snugly also?

Yeah, the backplate is on good. Its probably just a bad seat so I will have to tear it down again.
