My water cooled AMD Phenom II 1090T Black edition - Page 3

post #21 of 101
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I pulled out the WC out of my system and put a HS and fun (I have already posted a pic) so far my temps are better with the HS and fan but the load temps is where the most difference is its about 30c better I have not seen it over 50c yet, when its get warmer it may get over 50c all i can tell you its cold.


This is what my computer looks like now.

424

as you can see its cleaner but not neater with out cutting them out I can't see a way to hide all the cables. next have spair cash i will go too jaycar I see if I can get some of those twisty wire thingys and wrap them around my wires and see if that helps?

Now that I don't have a fan on the north bridge there is a lot of heat that was not there before.

This is my block

216

As you can on the copper plate there is some stuff between the fins but there is not much I was able to blow it out with my can of air (my wonderful can of air). the centre part of my block has a heap of small holes in it and one big one, I think if it did not have the big hole the water would have stopped because some of the holes where blocked, i was able to unblock it with my wonderful can of air so apart from being leaked tested its ready to go back in.

Also i have found no evidence of corrosion any where bar the rad as I can't see in to know however there was some sort of floaties in the coolant which may have being algae I'm not sure, either way I was lucky I had any flow. now all of my hoses where clear of large abstractions except my Res the inlet barb was full of something I guess algae, like I said I was luck to have any flow at all. now my res I'm not sure what to do with it as I made it years ago, I sealed it with a sealant I don't know if I can open it to clean it out as there is still crap in it.

After opening my water block and looking at it, it comes to mind that it is a maybe not high restriction but maybe moderate flow restriction, I think, I read a review once that said that, that would explain a lot combined with the algae I don't think i was getting much flow, however below is a pic of my pump.

451

Its a Danger Dans CSP-MAG they are low pressure and I think the main reason why i did not have much flow, saying that i think they have lasted longer than the 5 years, this is the only pump that I have ever had and I started water cooling in 2005 so I have had it for 7 years, there has being down time but I think that down time is only up to about a 1 year, so that means that this pump has being running any where up to 6 years and it still works. I got a good run with this pump but the performance was just not good enough.

Oh I'm now hot sure if the spider bit me or not i have had no side effects from the bite, so yay.

Ashley

Ps any ideas on what i may do with my res, how to open it or buy a new maybe....??

take a 13" cake tray they are about 2-4" deep vinegar and water mix fill radiator put it in the tray fill the tray with more vinegar/water mix set on a stove eye boil for about 5 minutes rinse and repeat until you get free flow through the radiator is the best way I know of. make sure it covers the inlet and outlet of the radiator you may need like a cheap turkey tray if you dont have a cake pan deep enough.

HI I made an image of the screen shot of my my temps its below.

640

Its a real kick in the teeth when you compare my temps with my old WC system Vs moded stock air, my new WC setup better work better or I am not going to be one happy girl.

Some things i have being reading have being to pump vinegar through my loop or the parts i want to clean, I might try that, I'll add my red even though i have flushed it and it ran clear there is still no way to know what is still inside so its better to be safe then sorry, my block I took it apart so I wont add it its clean, my Res I know its not ok I can see some of it on the inside.

what i may do to my Res is put the vinegar in it and shake it around around with plugs in so it don't spill out then drain it.

What do you think is that a bad idea or not?

Oh yeah what type of vinegar should use white or brown?

I use the clear none colored vinegar the only reason I suggestion boiling it for a few minutes is the heat will help the vinegar dislodge anything possibly clinging to the metal and it lets the vinegar also break down any possible sodium or other minerals that might have been in the cooling liquid.

thanks vedaire for stepping in on the water cooling cleaning solution. I've personally never done it and probably never will.

This is my rads yes there are two of them they are car oil coolers I got them off ebay years ago, I think I paid $35 each, they have not being problem free they leak from the hoses, so far every thing I have try has not worked which mostly was tighten the clamps more. The leaks ranged from weeping to dripping, I don't like leaking so I'm going to fix it.

How I'm going to fix it is, I have some brass fitting that I'm going to glue (glue is the wrong word). the glue is a 2 part stuff its water proof and is rated to 120c and can go up 140c for short amount of time, so its ok I'm being using it in my loop for the last 7 years or though it was on the cool side of the loop not the hot side, but still its should be right.

I use to use those Sorcha the easy fix is use a pipe cutter remove the bubble in the end of the line and redo that part when they come from the manufacturer that Bubble works great for car hosing as its really thick walled and stiff whereas the tubbing we use isnt so you need a slightly bigger bubble or expansion there to seal to our tubing properly.

I know what you mean about the thick walled holes I was using thin and thick walled tubing, the thin walled I had thing but trouble with it and thick walled I had less trouble but still had trouble.

your right I should use a tube cutter but I don't have one and no money to by one I have a hack saw that's all, don't worry I wish I had a small pipe bender so I could bend the pipes away from each other.

I would rather fix this problem so I never have this problem ever again that's why I was going to use the brass fittings that was I could change the barbs if I wanted to, when i charge my batteries got my camera I'll take a pic of them and post it.

Either way I will not be doing anything to my rad's yet besides I have yet to flush it with the vinegar.

Comparing my old Volcano 9 that i had on my old Socket A mother board vs what i have on my computer now my temps in the summer where 61c-62c and in the winter I overclocked it and it ran 55c that was why I started water cooling because no heat sink and fan set up could keep up with the heat not just the cpu but it was 35c out side without air con, so with the computer on the temp in my room was about 38c.

back in the day i had the Volcano 9 I had it running at full speed and it was still not good enough, but on the stock heat sink that came with Phenom chip I have the same fan on it that I had on the Volcano 9 and I have it turned down and its quiet I have never had a computer this quiet before plus the temps are better now than anything have had before I have never seen idle temps of 25c or load of 44c, that was what I was trying to do with the water loop but failed.

If my new water loop can't keep up I may go back to air cooling.

These are the brass fittings that I was going to use, I have two T fittings they are going to be fill ports, I'm hoping that it will make it easer to get air out.
