New Loop, temps seem high - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Your issue is your rad. You went from a 240mm rad to a 200mm rad.

Getting the 360mm rad and putting it in the top mayyyyy be a bit of a burden. I would look at getting a second 200mm rad and putting it on top of your other, and just have the two rads in a series for a total of 400mm of radiator surface area.

That way you could get away with doing your CPU and a GPU in the future. thumb.gif

Ok a little confused with that one. I went from a 2x120 (h100) to a 1x200. Surface area on the 200 is larger than the 240. Not to mention it's thicker. Not doubting that I might need another radiator but I don't think I downgraded.

also i see you have dye. what brand of coolant / dye are you using. some coolants dont work very well.
what tim are you using also? method of application? any more info would be helpfull

The coolant is Primochill PC ice. The TIM is the switchech brand that came with the block. I plan on getting some mx-4 but from what I've seen that should only change it at most by a few degrees. I expected 10-15c better on a custom loop vs the h100, maybe I was just kidding myself.

Actually think you called it. I just laid the system on it's side and saw a few bubbles and now I'm 10c lower. 5 minutes of Prime highest core is 67 and that's back at 4.8g with Vcore of 1.38. Thanks!!!

My overclocked 4.8ghz 2700k does about 65c under load depending on ambient. Recently it's a bit colder so it's down to around 59c.

Glad it worked out.

Just another upate...I'm back at 4.8g with a VCore of 1.38, I added a GTS 360 rad and my temps after 30 minutes of Prime are crazy good. Max core is running at 63c. I'm not sure how great that Phobya 200 is, maybe if I have time I'll remove it from the loop just to see what happens, but adding the 360 made a huge differance, almost 15c lower!!
