Swiftech high temps. PLEASE HELP<pics provided

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have the following setup:
pump(MCP655)-->radiator (MCR120)-->CPU block (swiftech apogee)--> northbridge (swiftech also)-->reservoir (floppy bay)-->back to pump
I also got 3 other 120mm fan running besides the 120mm outside the case for the radiator

My e6600 is overclocked to 2.641 Ghz (9x293.5) vcore is at 1.45
is a modest overclock for a cpu ive heard going as far as 4.0 on air.

My problem is, that anything behond this clock speed is unstable, my current temperatures are:
-As reads in the bios 54 C
-As reads on "intel thermal analysis tool" and "SpeedFan" is ~44 C Idle, 56 C Load
I dont know who to believe the bios or the programs. BTW the pump is at full speed and so is the radiator fan.

try re-seating it, and using less AS5 (ie half a grain of rice sized blob)

Yeah I would try re-seating to, check how it is spread when you take it off and see if it's spread nice and even...I trust the bios more then the other monitoring programs...

Make sure you aren't kinking the tube at the pump intake...That looks like far too sharp a bend. Also that double 90 to the NB is rough on your flow as is the chipset cooler.

the pump intake is an elbow, so theres no kink, and the flow seems good to me, real fast.
Wat do u mean by reseating? u mean take the cpu block out, re-place the thermal paste and putting it back on

Well 3 90's in a system is bad for flow. That's what they mean by resetting. Make sure you use a rice size dot on the CPU.

I cant really tell from the pic's, but is your fluid milky looking? If it is you need to bleed it some more a lot of air in the lines will make it run hot to....As Snerp said lose those 90's they restrict your flow a lot...

90's-u mean the elbow bends rigth?, ill try to take out the one on the cpu, i was just afraid of kinks in the line bc the cpu and nb blocks are so close.
The water is milky, i did notice that, it is air, I tryied to take out as much as i could but I guess is not enogh. Any recommendations??

On the cpu i did notice some scratches on the copper surface ffacing the cpu, could that matter that much? IF so what can I do, besides getting a new block?

Yeah, the 90s are elbows. Make sure your get all the air out. Make sure your res is full enough and that it isn't sucking in air. You can go get some fine grit sand paper and lapp the bottom by sanding it on top of a piece of glass.

Unless he made error in his build, I think if his rad isn't in a terrible place and his waterblock is tight on his cpu his problem relies in the chip it self. I've seen my cpu's jump up in temp by just overclocking them and without increasing voltage. Pair that observation with a bad stepping and you have a cpu that gets hot with just a modest overclock. Its really the luck of the draw..

My real world example would be when I tinkered with one of my render nodes and overclocked a 2x 4400+ to 2.55Ghz with out touching the voltage. The temps climbed from 39C load (stock) to 51C load overclocked. Explain that..
