I finally finished my build after almost a month! Very sick, and love the look of it. Well, I got windows 7 ultimate installed, and checked out my temps.
GPU(gtx 680 hydrocoppper): 36c
CPU (Ivy Bridge 3770k): 42c
I noticed right off the back, that these temperatures are way to warm for the loop I have.
If I am bench marking with it, say with Heaven 3.0, I find that my GPU Temperatures are through the roof! 98c+! I instantly turn off the benchmark and they shoot back down. The odd thing is, is that my CPU is only reaching about 45c, which is again too high for my liking.
I let all air out of the system, at least that I know of. I did almost 36 hours of leak testing/leaking air. So I think that really isn't a problem, but I am not 100% sure. Here is what I think the problem is, maybe I am wrong.
My radiators are Swiftech 360 eXtreme Performance, and Swiftech 120mm eXtreme Performance with a MCP655 pump at highest setting. The fins for thje radiators are very dense close to each other and require high amounts of airflow. I am using NZXT Performance fans as push/pull for both rads, and they are only 1300 rpm / 47 cfm.
Could this be the problem? I'm honestly kind of stumped.
Thanks for reading!
