Raystorm temperature check, I7 930 4Ghz 1.25V --------- 43C Idle 61C Load

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
How are these temps? I have a MCP320-XP with 1600RPM fans and a "passive" RX360. Im thinking the idle is high, the load is fine, but i'm thinking that if my idle goes to normal 38C or something my loads will fall also.

Also anyone with the block, how much do i screw the second set? All the way down or nothing at all?

And replacing my RX with say a phobya 560 and adding a 200mm radiator, will it get even better?

Ambient is around 24C

Loop is pump>mcr>raystorm>rx>res

Do keep in mind that you might just have a chip that runs hot, it's not uncommon at all. Temps look just fine to me. You use the second screws for tension adjustment, the optimal amount will vary depending on the shape of your chip's IHS, you may need to experiment to find the amount of pressure that's just enough without being too much, but generally speaking you want more rather than less.

As for improving the temps, you're not going to see much of an improvement by adding more radiator. Adding more radiators won't drop your temps linearly, you'd want to know what your water delta is at to know if adding more radiator is going to be of much use to you. If you're already at a 5c delta, adding more radiator might move you to a 2c or 3c delta, which would shave the exact same amount off your load temps (and likely shave nothing off your idle temps, as you're definitely far over what you need to cool your chip at idle). You're pretty much at a best-case for your idle temp, toy with remounting the block but since load temps look good I don't expect much there.

Thanks, ill see if new mounts change things a bit, with more/less pressure

Yeah, Raystorm is one of the most extremely bowed blocks I've used. The bowing is really good for the 1155 platform, but a bit much for 2011 and probably somewhere in between for 1366. Look at the thermal paste spread. You want a nice oval shaped thin spot directly over the core area. I found on the 3930K that I needed to add a little pressure on one side to roll it over for optimal mounting. Alternatively you can use something like indigo extreme to get pretty much a perfect mount every time, not cheap though.

All blocks are within a few degrees though, so more than likely if you have high temps you may just need more radiator/fan.

Add some fans to the passive rad even low rpm fans will improve the cooling of the rad nicely

Poor contact? Remount the block before you buy another one, I should be able to give you idea what you would get on a 3930k soon but I doubt its the block from everything i'v read.... Martinm210 what block do you use?
