Disapointed with custom loop

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I just built a new PC, ran it dry for a couple of months to make sure no DOA's and have now watercooled with a custom loop.

I have to say when comparing my systems to people running same clock speeds and voltage they are getting better temps with a H100!

Here is a full run sheet with my equipment and settings, if anyone has any suggestions I would really appreciate them

3770k
Asus z77 Sabertooth
2x 8gb Corsair Dominator Platinum 2400mhz
EVGA GTX670 SC
2x 120gb Samsung 840's in RAID 0.

Clocked up to 4.5ghz with a core voltage of 1.25v -> LLC set to Ultra core voltage reads at 1.256v up to 1.264v

Manually set mem timings and voltage for ram 10-12-12-31 @1.65v

Watercooling loop is in this order

Res -> Swiftech 655 -> XSPC RX240 with 4x 2150rpm GT's Push/Pull - > Koolance 380 -> BlackIce GT 240 with 2x 2150rpm Gt's in Pull - > XSPC GTX670 WB and back to res. 1/2" - 3/4" tubing

in this config temps on the hottest core are getting up to around 73 degrees. I would ahve though id be in 4.6-4.8ghz territory frown.gif I will say that when running on the stock cooled that came with the CPU I did see the core temps get close to 100 degrees. Do I just have a hot chip? Do I have a leg to stand on if I want to get it swapped out?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

What TIM did you use for your CPU+GPU block? Have you ever tried remounting either blocks?

You must either have really hot ambients or there is a bad mount on the CPU. What is your GPU temp at?

Make sure you have your fans pulling air into your case on your radiators.

Dont worry about H100 users. The liquid in them will one day evaporate and cause all their gear to burn up and you'll have been avenged.

Thanks for the quick replies guys. Ambient temps are great today 22degrees C inside.

GPU sits around 30c-32c but i'm not stressing it yet. was doing CPU first through OCCT then going to OC the GPU

TIM i'm using is the stuff that came with the XSPC block and the Koolance one I received was just full of air frown.gif

Fans are all pulling air from outside the case to inside. then case fans exhausting.

Results don't seem to be far off of what i get on 3770K. Remember that you also over voling the I7 memory controller (I have 2400mhz 1.65v memory on it too) which also bring up the temps. You will notice that the cores closer to the controller will be consistently hotter than the ones furtherer away.
Delidding the chip and doing it bare back or with better TIM between IHS and chip (better, as what peanut butter intel is using) can bring temps down 10c or more (or less), but it is a risky process.

alright I guess this is where it will sit at then... 4.5ghz it certainly a large improvement over 3.9ghz I guess...

I've just reapplied the TIM and its much the same.

Oddly if I change my multipliers to x46. I'm still only getting max 4500mhz?

You might have a stuck BIOS. It happens sometimes with the Sabertooth. You'll have to reflash it, make sure to export your settings to a flash drive before doing so.
