What's causing such high load temps?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was folding for an hour or so last night and checked my temps and they seemed extremely high for my setup...

I have my i7 990x (at stock) running off an MCR220, and my 2 GTX 470's (at stock) running of an MCR320. Both radiators are in push/pull right now.


After an hour of folding last night the 990x was running all cores in the mid 60's and the 470's were also in the mid 60's. Seems like that's pretty high for stock settings, as all components idle around 28c.


My main concern is sufficient air flow since I had to remove the bottom fan to fit the 220 rad in the lower HDD bay, so I have the rear exhaust fan and the top 320 pushing air out but really nothing pulling air in. What do you guys think?

I absolutely think you need to get some airflow into the case that would be part of the temp, no cool air intake will raise the ambient temperature inside the case even if your exhausting the hot air.

Is there a way to mount a fan underneath the case blowing upward:? Otherwise I have no room in the lower compartment for another fan. I'll turn the rear exhaust fan around to see if that helps too.

if your Radiator is filling the entire bottom the only other way would be to place them on the front in fornt of the HDD bays can you post a couple pics of the inside of your case.

although i don't believe your temps being in the mid 60"s is bad they might be high considering your running liquid cooling on the system.

Well I figured out the main problem. The radiator fans were barely moving any air. The fan controller I was using was barely keeping the fans spinning so I swapped it out for another one I had and the fans are all working much better now. Been running for about 4 hours now and everything is running around 45c.

That's great glad you figured it out I still think you need a little air intake to not sure how you can do it though

Yeah I agree, and I'm going to look at ways to get more air into it. Fortunately the temps are ok now so I can leave it folding without overheating until I figure out how.
