main window or advanced settings?

Main window, get rid of all the fans not reporting an rpm.

The fans should be reporting RPM, do you have anything under the fans menu reporting?

Maybe you guys can diagnose a problem for me, I just finish installing extra radiators on my H220, it looks great but my temps leave much to be desired. Max temps are around 60C and idle temps hover between 35-40C, maybe 1-2C difference with fans and pump at full speed.

I have bled the system as much as I can, fluid is always topped off every time I open the rad. For reference, I am using a mix of Swiftech HydrX PM Coolant and some distilled water.

All my hardware is at stock, nothing is overclocked. I am using a Swiftech Komodo 7900 water block, a Koolance 120mm rad and a Alphacool 280mm rad. Currently the 280mm rad is set to push air inside the case and the other 2 rads and the back fan are pushing air out. Any tips on how I can improve my system would be greatly appreciated, this is my first time making a custom loop




*edit* Prior to expanding my H220 I would get CPU idle temps from 24-30C

Need more info on which rads are used and what fans?
Ambient temps?
Bottom I would go intake. Also adding more rads do not always mean lower temps.

So if you turn off automatic control you can't adjust the pump? Have you tried swapping headers to the one that allows you to control the fans?

- Bottom rad- using a Silenix Effizio fan. Not the best for a rad but its more for the look.

http://koolance.com/radiator-1-fan-120mm-30-fpi-copper

-Side rad- Using 2 140mm fans that came with the Arc Midi R2.

http://www.amazon.com/Alphacool-NexXxoS-Copper-240mm-Radiator/dp/B007P05XUU

-Top rad - Just the Swiftech rad with the stock fans pulling air out.

Tubing is H220 standard tubing 3/8 by 5/8.

Ambient is 23C.
