Best way to bring temps down......New 280 Rad? - Page 2

If you are like 20c from ambient, you might cut 10c with an extra 280 or 360 rad in you loop. You should furthermore be sure you have enough flow.

^agree with both of these suggestions

Well, lately my hottest core has been idling about 44 C with an ambient of about 25 C. I want to keep the temps under 80C under load. I want to do a run at 4.8Ghz, but with my temps already high, I just need to figure out a way to get them down. Would that be through more rads, better rads or something else I don't know?

I have a 480 rad for my 460 and 2600k. At 1.4v and 5 GHz I run about 76-81C after 3 hours of prime95 (with the GPU idling). I have 2000 RPM gentle typhoons in push config.

I think your temps are fine. You might be able to lose 4-6C by adding more radiator, but it's probably not worth it.
