Water loo[ Temps, HIGH AS FECK

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
I've just installed a custom water cooling loop in my rig and the temperatures seem just a bit to high! Here are the specs of my system then water cooling rig. Why the Heck are they soo high?

CPU- 2600k Stock
GPU- Asus GTX 590
Storage-120gb ssd
Case- Haf 932
MObO- Asus Maximus Extreme 4 rev 3.0



Reservoir/pump=Koolance d985

Tubing - orange 1/2 ID 3/4 OD UV

Fittings - enzo tech compression fittings on Pump CPU and GPU

Fittings- Barbs on Radiators and outlet for Pump

3 bitfenix pro fans for the 360mm radiator on top 30 FPI

1 bit fenix spectre pro fan for 120mm Radiator

Danger Den gtx 590 GPU block

Aquacomputer Cuplex Kryos Acetal

Koolance high performance cooling liquid- No color

Artic MX4 thermal paste on GPU cores and CPU core.

Room temp is 28 C

Cooling temp is
CPU -50-80 C
GPU- 40-70 C

Pump is on full speed and I've bleed the system of air.

too small of a rad for these components. Especially the 590

Sorry, this is meaningless. There's a HUGE difference between 40 and 70 C. You should know your temps to within a couple of degrees C.

However, if it does get to 70 C under load, that's very bad and something is very wrong. Do you know your flow rate? Can you measure how long it takes to drop, say, 10 degrees (from 70 to 60) once you turn off the load?

First number is idle, second is load. Watching netflix ATM, temps are on 1/3 load

first change the fans, those fans got low static pressure. second the pump/reservoir prolly have hard time to push thru this loop, I mean its weaker than an X20 pump on the XSPC kits, I believe if I got it right yours does 420l/hr and thats a bit too weak.. try changing your pump to a more powerful one. coz that pump/res combo is meant to do single block/rad loops I believe.


with that kind of loop I would suggest a MCP35* pump or D5 pumps.. that way your sure that your pump is enough to push thru your loop.

Ah. OK, like I said, 70 C load is very bad for a GPU. It's not even a case of "too small of a rad". Something is broken or something is not assembled right.

What's the order of components?

Any idea of the water temperatures in the loop? If your GPU is hitting 70 C and the waterblock is seated right (the problem is not with seating or thermal paste), tubes coming out of the waterblock should be too hot to touch. What's the temperature of the water in the reservoir after you keep the system under load for 10-20 minutes?

Actually the amount of rads he has got should be plenty for what you have there.
So is 70ยบ C but it should certainly be lower then that.
Yeah try checking the thermal paste on your CPU.
the best thermal paste is Arctic silver 5 Although there are other good quality ones but there are some really dodgy thermal pastes that a more of e hinderance then a help.
