Failed watercooling project - Page 2

WHOA! Put some fans on your radiator!! There's a huge issue right there. You're also supposed to put Radiator --> CPU to ensure that the processor is getting the coolest water from the loop.

you have to move that rad you are getting very little airflow like that, and the res should be the highest point.

Is your radiator sitting on a solid surface?!?! The fans are useless if they are sitting on a solid surface. Also, make sure you don't use to much AS5 on the CPU.

I alwasy thought antifreeze doesn't take heat away anything like pure water would. the main reason for antifreeze is to either raise/lower the boiling point as well as a little lube for the pumps, and anti corrosion

[pump> cpu> radiator> reservoir]
This is how my loop was setup before I added another rad and my temps were 30c.


[pump> cpu> reservoir> radiator]
Your loop is not much differn't and your getting 70c? Maby your pump ain't working or something else is wrong.
