First Water Cooling Setup - Looking for Feedback and Suggestions!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody

Just did my first water cooling setup in a Cooler Master ATCS840. Case has plenty of room so I went with the XSPC Raystorm 360. Below are the pictures and the results with Prime95 after 3 hours. Wanted to see what you guys thought of the results and if they were decent with a 930 OC'd to 4Ghz.

Thanks!

not too sure but to me that seems pretty darn hot for a 360 on a cpu. i game for hours on my i5 @4.6GHz and dont get higher than 45C with only a 120rad.

do you have more pics of your pump and rad set up.

what other fans do you have in the case?

Keep in mind its a 930 and the stock is at 2.8Ghz. I'll work on getting more pics. Thanks for the quick reply.

A little tough to get good pics inside the case of the pump but essentially the outlet of the pump/res is going to the rad, which goes to the cpu block, and then block to inlet of the res/pump. The only other fan I have in the case is a 230mm in the front for intake. Any other ideas?

Keep that RES COLD if the bulk of the water is cold, it will stay colder longer.

sure getting an instant cool before the CPU is great. But the water temp doesn't self cool in sense like it would going from rad to res. If the majority of the water is still cold it helps give that extra bit of cool to the rad water.

that's my input on it. other than that.

Fan types? try Corsair High static series.

(3 color rings included. White Blue Red)

they really push air.

if you think you're fans are good enough. try push pull.

that 360 should be all kinds of cold for a cpu still tho.

are your fans blowing down into the case or blowing air up from inside the case? at 4ghz you want to aim for about 40 degrees c.
if you can get your res and pump closer to the componants, maybe put the radiator backwards you will have much shorter tubes, allowing better flow and may slightly effect temperature.
