I'm saying your claims are what is hard to believe, which is validated by your subsequent screen shot. Obviously, you did not write what you meant. Happens in this day and age way too often.

I'm using MX-4 thermal paste, I have actually tried remounting it and I used a ruler to check the height of each mount and the whole thing seems completely level. I have a feeling that my pump just isn't good enough to pump that much water around my case, but look, this is what my case looks like:



The pump is directly below the large reservoir in the middle, and there's another bay reservoir in the front at the top, that's a lot of water.
There's just not enough room below the cyclindrical reservoir to fit a larger pump. I could have a pump beside it, but it would mean having a tube go from the bottom of the cyclindrical reservoir and then do a U turn up towards the pump, and isn't it a definite that you want the reservoir to be directly above the pump so gravity pulls the water down to the pump?

What if I added a second pump just after the first one, would that help, or perhaps just cause problems with two pumps (probably) pumping at different speeds and "fighting" eachtoher? if it would help, what is a good pump to get? there's about space enough for a PSU down there so size isn't really an issue, just something very strong but as quiet as possible, if that's doable..

If I got this pump http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/12V-Laing-D5-Vario-Pump-Swiftech-MCP655_146.html and put it next to the MCP355 (having a tube come up and over the top of the MCP655) and then out from the MCP644 back into the GPU, would that help? or just cause problems with 2 pumps right next to eachother? could I just replace the MCP355 completely? how much better is the MCP655? I would rather not have to dump my existing pump especially after buying an aftermarket top for it and aftermarket heatsink case.

Meant what I wrote. I never said that I could run prime for hours and never get above 32C. Here are my temps playing GW2 for about an hour.
Looks like I do occasionally peak above 32C avg. so call me a liar if it makes you feel better about yourself.

My point is was without more information it was going to be impossible to help the OP.

Seems like his temps are a little high for a custom loop with all that rad.

Can't see if the 6900 is overclocked as well.

Still need more information on his setup. What rads, what fans, D5 pump? Could be that the rads are too thin, the fans are too slow....

If you want to help, make some suggestions to the OP.

What temps are you seeing on your gpu? Are they high? Only ask because if they aren't then you can narrow it down rather that investigating the entire loop.

I saved off the pic in the first post and enlarged it. Looks like he's got a 6900 running at 43C during that prime run. That seems a little high as well but it's after 15 mins of max temp on the cpu so some of that could just be inability of the loop to shed heat right?

paradoxum do you remember what your gpu temps looked like just a few minutes into the test? How do they look normally like during a game?

Chill man. Your statement implied, to me anyway, that your rig did not go over 32C under load. Once you posted your load temps, it clarified the intent of your first post. It is certainly not unusual for something that is crystal clear to the originator is not to the reader. All is now clear and understood. You are GTG.

this is after running BF3 on ultra/1920x1080 for 30 mins the card runs at 900/1400mhz;
56c gpu
65c max cpu (65c,65c,64c,61c)

will putting an extra pump here help? which one? an mcp655? what is the best cost/performance ratio for aftermarket tops? this one http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/EK-DDC-X-TOP-Rev2-Acetal_677.html for example, why is it so much cheaper than this one http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/EK-Water-Blocks-EK-D5-X-TOP-CSQ-Acetal_29826.html ? is it just the extra ports or does it actually help push more water?

My MSI GTX 660ti PE in 3D Mark never exceeds 65c,it is the same in BF3 after hours of playing!(air cooling)

Could someone tell me if adding another pump will help what with my huge reservoir aswell as the bay reservoir? (aesthetics)

The loop would be:


So will adding that second pump help with the large amount of water I have due to the reservoirs? Is there a better second pump I should perhaps go for? Will having a stronger pump directly after the MCP355 cause any problems?
