Overclocking an 8350 with sub -ero ambients under water

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Tonight in this part of Texas, the termperature is supposed to get down to 20f, so since I don't have any finals tomorrow, I'm going to try an experiment.

I have my cpu under 600mm worth of rads, and every window in my room opened up with a fan pushing air out one window and in the other

I'm still waiting for temps to drop a bit more, but so far It's down to 10C in here, and my socket temp is at 15C (still at stock atm)

I'll post some results and pictures here as I get them, hopefully this should be pretty fun biggrin.gif

Have anything in your loop to keep your water from starting to solidify in your rads?

i have an mcp 655-b running at full speed, and nothing in my loop is particularly restrictive, and since I get a pretty high flow rate I figured that would be enough, should I add some propelyne glycol?

actually come to think of it, i dont have any.. but I doubt it will get that cold in here

Alright, I think this is about the coolest it's going to get in here, so I'm going to go ahead and get started

Here's the setup I've got running


It's sitting at about 6C in here


I stuck the probe in the reservoir to see what sort of temps it was running at, and found it at about 6-7C



I'm going to go warm up a bit and then I'll get started

I love stuff like this! You and slappa should get together and see what you can come up with.

Me too biggrin.gif
and it could be interesting lol


After a quick stress test, load temps are about 16C at stock
The water in the loop reached a scorching 6C tongue.gif

You see, we go about this the other way, you cool off your room so you can overclock higher, I overclock higher to warm up the room.
