add another rad for haswell?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hi guys, switching to a 4770k on prob tues unless delivery arrives late, im current running an 8350 at 4.7 24/7 along with a 7970 at a pretty high clock. Im gonna be switching that to a titan with the 4770k since my current mobo is incompatible with the titan due to bios issues.

atm i have a custom loop with the gpu and cpu in it. i have one 360 xspc ex rad, d5 pump at setting #3.

ive heard haswell runs excessively hot due to the TIM provided instead of soldering and i doubt ill try to delid it until a few more paychecks in when i can afford to lose one when (ill definitely mess up) i mess it up. i wasnt always the best at arts and crafts in school smile.gif


so, should i be fine with my current loop? i know the 8350s at a higher clock arent exactly considered cool, but would the haswell warrant another rad? i have room for another 360 in my case and atm the xspc ex 360s are only like $60 which is almost nothing really.


thanks for any imput.

Haswell doesn't necessarily produce that much heat, but rather has problems dissipating that heat away due to the smaller architecture and thermal paste, making it run hot. If you get decent temps on your 8350, then I'd at least test it out first and then consider adding more rad space.

My 360 rad should be plenty for my 3770k, but the actual chip is unable to dissipate that heat away sufficiently, which is why only delidding will help at that point.

A radiator wont' make a different for the temps. You already know the CPUs run hot because they aren't soldered to their heatsink but what you don't seem to understand is why. It's because since they use shoddy TIM coupled with poor mounts between the IHS and CPU die heat isn't effectively transferred from the CPU die to the internal heat spreader. In reality the IHS is a LOT cooler than the temps you're getting on the CPU, it's just the heat isn't being transfered from the CPU die to the IHS.

In short, adding more radspace won't effect temps. You NEED to delid it if you want good temps.
