Core 2 Duo WC Temps

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So Guys i finally finished a fun build with my Core 2 Duo. I decided to do water cooling and my temps seem to be exactly the same as when i had my megahalems.

Megahalems max temp with 1.296 vcore was 65c with 50 passes LinX

Water cooling gets the same temps running LinX.

Here is a pic where i Modded my Antec 300, It's not 100% finished but it is in running order. Now i placed the Pump higher than the Radiator, could that be the issue or perhaps it lies somewhere else?

*Note* when vcore is bumped to 1.4v it will reach 75c.


Water cooling Contains:

MCP350 Pump
XSPC Rasa
Swiftech dual rad
3/8 Tubing

What kind of fans on rad?

Possibly need a remount, what kind of TIM did you use? Was there a thin plastic film on bottom of cpu block?

Does loop go res>pump>cpu>rad>res ? As long as res is above pump you're ok.

Pump To Radiator than from Radiator to Waterblock. Waterblock to Res than from Res Back to Pump.

Remounted a few times, same results. No Plastic on Waterblock.

Tim was XSPC, Used rice grain size on CPU.

Fans on the radiator are 1800 RPM Zalman. I do have 1400 Typhoons i can use though.

Easiest thing at this point would be to try the other fans IMO. The typhoons are great rad fans, what direction is your airflow? you are pulliing air in from outside thru the rad correct?

Did you bleed the air out of your radiator? Air will pretty much kill rad performance...

Yeah pulling air from the outside. i'll have to try the typhoons.

My "Goal" was to OC it to 4.5ghz but more realistically 4.3/4.4ghz. When i run LinX the temps will get to hot, hitting 75c+. When i run Prime95 i cannot get over 70C's so lol.

Maybe stick with Prime?

The Air Pockets were really bad at first, seems to be gone though.
