High temps on first water loop - Page 2

I would agree here. With this move you would need to remove the bracket and the clip that holds the cpu to the board and just rely on the cooler to hold it into place. Im also curious as to what tim you are using. I had gotten some prolimitech pk-1 and Im blown away with how much cooler my cpu runs but that may simply be because my previous thermal super extreme pad wasnt all that great for what it cost me.

I thought about delidding but not sure about how difficult that is. The water is flowing the right way. I am going from pump/reservoir to radiator, to cpu block, back to pump

I was having high water cooled temps too before I delidded. Now it's perfect.

From what I hear mounting directly on the die is risky. It'd be safer to delid, clean it up, new TIM and replace IHS.

So some of you here have had success delidding? Is the reward worth the risk? I'm thinking about doing that and slapping all my stuff into a Haf 942 just so I have more space and can hopefully mount my radiator in the case.

I have a Raystorm block and RX360 rad, and when my 3770k was at 4.7ghz at 1.33vcore, it got into the 87c range in a 23c room, before I delidded. So if you are around 1.3~1,34 vcore, hitting 90 does not sound too far off. Come to think of it, I don't recall you mentioning your vcore... Also, too much TIM can raise the temps, we only need to look under the IHS to confirm that laugher.gif Also, what TIM are you using? I had tried the XSPC TIM that came with my Raystorm, and while not bad, it's not up to the latest high performance stuff or the liquid metal TIMs.

Anyhoo, my temps did not go down much until I delidded and used CLU on the die and on the block to IHS. Now at 1.423 vcore on offset, 4.8ghz, and hit 70 in Prime so delidding really beat the heat. The latest method of delidding involves a vise to clamp the IHS, a block of wood and a hammer, no kidding. There's a video in the Intel CPU section. Will be building a system for the brother next week (he's not hardware savvy) and I will be using this method. It is not without risk, but looks less risky than the razor-blade method. I spent a lot of money for water, and delidding dropped over twice as much C for the cost of a tube of CLU and an oz of sweat.

But if you are happy with the OC, 90c under extreme load is safe, and the typical game isn't going to tax it that much anyway. If your voltage is not at the 'wall' and you want to go higher but are temperature challenged, delidding may get you a higher OC.

Thanks I will check out that video and see how scary it looks. And on my overclock I havent actually touched the vcore myself, unless the bios adjusts it. All I did was change my multiplier from 34 to 45 and thats where it is stable.

He said he got better temps on air. Just try reseating the block first.

but is it going in the in port on the block itself? you WILL get horrible temps going in the out door...

Yes, Coming from the radiator into the "in" port and then the out goes back to the pump/reservoir
