Wow guys, way to confirm everything I said in your attempts to refute what I said.


Got a question that I can't seem to get a confirming answer about. Do the radiators have any one-way valving systems or pressure release/reverse flow relief valves in them?

venomous is a great guy. I truly believe that he did not know it was full of gunk. We can blame science for the nasty build tongue.gif

I filled the radiator as best I could with white viniger. I then sat the radiator in a very large empty pot. I filled the pot with rough 1/3 of the way up with white viniger and the rest with water. I boiled it for about 20-30 minutes each time.

Oh yeah, temps are amazingly cool now. I'm curious what a reservoir full of ice cold water would do. 50% overclock maybe? On a Brisbane core no less biggrin.gif

I was also able to drop Vcore @ 3.3ghz even more. I'm down to 1.45v @ 3.3ghz 4 hours Prime stable. With the stock H60, it took 1.52v at the same clock frequency!

The ice cold water won't stay cool for long, just because you get a larger reservoir doesn't mean it will give you cooler temps, the entire loop will reach a point of equilibrium.

The entire reservoir will hold about 2-2.5 gallons. Besides that, it's just for suicide runs to get the really high clocks speeds and a CPU-Z validation. 3.6ghz will get me in the top 10 on HWBOT biggrin.gif Its all in fun anyways.

I have seen people submerging the RAD in to the bucket filled with water and ice to keep the temps down. maybe try that rather than adding cold water in the res. It will stay cool longer and it s easier to refill with ice. Just remember to add antifreeze to the loop so it doesnt freez inside.
Even maybe adding antifreeze to the water and than putting it in the freezer. When u get it out it should be sub zero and still liquid...just a thought...

I'll probably have to do the rad in a bucket of ice or the anti-freeze in the freezer trick. With ice water and a couple ice packs, I only managed to get to 3.5ghz @ 1.6vcore. Core temps were around 22C, so sub-zero would be the only answer to more clock speed, lol.

no they do not, just like a car radiator it flows both directions, but the thermostat is the pressure release. but it works off of temperature not pressure. that's what the overflow jug is for, when the pressure reaches 15-19 psi the cap opens enough for the pressure to release into the overflow jug. but it takes alot of heat to do that.
