Quite impressive for a $250 full loop with a GPU block. biggrin.gif

Now those numbers actually sound pretty good. Seems to me like you got pretty lucky in the CPU lottery actually - many Ivy Bridge processors will never hit those speed at those temperatures due to heatspreader issues. (even with great cooling)

Didn't have any of my fans on when I OC'd.
Now 4.5GHz running at 62c. Core 1 and 4 is 55c.

5GHz at 1.4V, running prime right now, 82c.
core 1-4 is 74c.

Yep, you got lucky and your chinese loop rocks man!!! biggrin.gif

Thank you very much for this thread it really got the gears turning thinking that maybe I should jump into the custom loop game a little earlier than I expected. Also, 5Ghz at 1.4v is really good man!!! You have a great chip there! How long did you run p95 at that speed? Is it stable?

Update for my temp updates.

I think my loop is fully bled out now since my reservoir is half empty when it was initially full.
My temps for core 1-4 and usually at 15c, core 2 is around 23c, and my 3rd core is at 30c.

The 15c difference between core 1-4 and the 3rd core is bothering me.
Still haven't reapplied thermal paste yet, but everything is good so far!

bro , im worried, the loop bled out?

He means he got all the air bubbles out of the system which improves temps

For any of you considering ordering from that site I recommend that you pay for good shipping. They offered free china post air mail on the 200mm rad that the OP ordered, so I accepted that. It's been over two and a half weeks and I have no idea when my package is going to arrive. The tracking number they give you really doesn't seem to be good for anything. I'm in the USA (Oregon).

I'm not worried about getting my parts, and even if I don't get them you can supposedly report that you never received your items and can get a refund. But yeah, I'm sitting here wishing that I had the res so that I can finish rebuilding my system. This also brings up a question of how good of a deal that site actually is since the costs of shipping for FedEx or others are so high (though the OP said you can email about getting a more accurate quote) that the price plus shipping might not be much lower than paying for a name brand part from a seller in your country.

Dealing with a lot of shipping of items from Japan and China, air mail and small parcel gets treated on very low priority. Small parcel has zero priority. It really depends on how much leftover space they have on their planes, and can take anywhere from one week to three weeks for air, and two weeks to a month for small parcel. If you're unlucky and order around high-traffic seasons such as Christmas, expect a month minimum. Your tracking number gets updated when it goes into the holding area awaiting to be boarded, and will update once again when it reaches state-side. Use USPS's tracking, I find it more accurate than whatever Chinapost / Japanpost website.

Thanks for the info. My tracking number doesn't even bring up anything from USPS, maybe it doesn't show up until it gets to this country? The various china post tracking sites don't find any results for my number either.

The GPU block didn't fit his GPU so it's not in the loop, but the fact remains that he did in fact get a GPU block as part of that price.
