Just learning to swim...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Im new to water cooling and was wanting some advise on temps.


i5 3570k
MSI BigBang Z77
MSI HD 7950 TwinFrozen
120gig SSD
1TB HDD
650watt Corsair PSU
16gig ram

The kit I used is a XSPC Raystorm 750 RS240 (just the CPU cooled)

When I first set it up and ran it I got temps from around 28c to 31c but now (2 days later) Im up to
35c to 40c at idle and about 45c to 52c while playing Skyrim and Crysis3 all maxed out.

Any cause for alarm?

No cause for alarm. Just keep an eye on your max temps and make sure it doesn't climb. Your idle temps may have changed if the ambient temps increased, but they sound about right smile.gif

What's your CPU speed and voltage?

Onething, just incase, is to check task manager everytime you startup and see where you idle cpu usage is at and if there seems to be a high cpu usage at idle I can help you out thumb.gif

What's the temperature of the room where you have your computer? If it's too hot there, I'd say your temps are OK. Otherwise, I'd say they are a bit high.
