Serious Cooling Issues

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am having serious heating problems. At 4.6 Ghz I hit 90C in less than 2 mins on full load and I get blue screened. For now I have clocked down to 4.2 which averages 75 C - 80 C on load stable.

CPU Specs on image below.

Corsair C70 Vengeance Gun Metal Case, Corsair h60 water cooling + 120mm fans next to hard drive bays. NO OTHER FANS (perhaps thats the problem).

I can mount 120 mm fans, 2 on the side panel and 2 on the upper section of case above the motherboard.

Would this fix my problems or should I get a better CPU cooler, if so - any recommendation? (I can fit a dual radiator)

I think you just need a better cooler. The H60 isn't all that great, and you are pushing quite a bit of power with that chip/speed/voltage. The H60 just can't handle that heat load.

Forceman seems to have the right idea. Maybe move to an H100i if you like the series and can fit it (preferably with push/pull fans). But having proper air flow through the case is also important. I would consider some case fans as well.

I agree on the H60 being weak for the purpose, but there's more to it than that; it's hard to cool anything with hot air. If you only have fans blowing in over the drive, and the H60 fan, I don't see good exhaust... just the PSU, or is the H60 exhausting? Back when I used cases I remember being nutty enough to count the CFMs in and out and balancing them for a slight positive pressure (slightly more in than out CFMs). Wanted my in's at the bottom and side, and my out's at the top and back. (Said I was nutty). When I drilled out a 120mm blow hole in top (heat rises) of my last case and stuck an Enermax fan there, the temps all around; proc, mobo and air temp all went down. Yea, exhaust fans.

h60i i better then the duel rad setup (i still dont know why) , So try a custom gpu setup. to start get a 240mm rad and good fan (gt1850 ap15) and push pull. can try to use that pump till you get more cash and just cut it up and get a res, swiftech makes good kits.
