Rare single loop configuration and high CPU temps? - Page 2

post #11 of 26
GPUs always run considerably cooler than CPUs w/ watercooling. In my last setup my GTX680s never broke 45C yet my 3930k ran @ 70C. This is with them overclocked as high as they would go.

Those temps look fine to me.

My two 7970s never go over 38c lol Vs my 3770k that goes into 50s for gaming and high 60s under intel burn/prime

I have no experience in watercooling, but I would try running both rads right behind the CPU. With such a high heat load (3 GPUs) it could make a difference.

You'd most likely need more rad space for this setup though. Another 240 or 360 would fix your problem permanently.

The rule of thumb says 120mm² of rad space for each block, plus one more on top. With the rads you're using you are doing just that, nobody said that's the optimum though. Especially when you're moving up in waterblock number this rule must be more and more inaccurate.

Im using a 480 + 360 + 240 for just my setup lulz.

What case are you using? Wouldnt hurt adding another 240/360. Also when did you set the loop? Sometimes it takes a bit to get all the little bubbles out and temps will drop a bit afterwards.

@Lowfat, iMica
Thanks guys. Now I feel better about my CPU temps now. thumbsupsmiley.png

@Daredevil
I'll test out my new configuration tonight. Only if the day would go faster smile.gif

@darwing
I promise to post the pictures as soon as I take them (this weekend).

Those temps are from your old loop order, right? As others have said, I wouldn't call 15°C delta between idle and load drastic, I'd call that awesome thumb.gif Also don't sweat the difference in temps when comparing the CPU with the GPU's, that's really like comparing apples and oranges. You want to get each as low as you can regardless of what the other is doing.

What programs are you using to stress the CPU and GPU? And how are you monitoring temps?

Noob watercooler here, why would you go from a rad straight to a res? Wouldn't the water/coolant sit and lose all that coldness it just got from the rad. In this case, what I would have done is go, (pump/res-> 240 Rad-> CPU-> 360Rad-> GPU -> Res) Granted I'm a noob so what do I know lol.

PS: Be sure to add your rig to your sig! (Check my sig for a howto)

Most of the time I go rad to res is because the rad is at the bottom of my case.

So I cant really go Res > Pump > Rad > cpu > rad > gpu > rad > Gpu > res. Unless you have like a 120 at the back pretty hard to throw a bottom rad into the mix.
