New XSPC 750 RS240 setup, blown away with my temps.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I don't post too much, but I finally decided to pull the trigger on an entry level XSPC Raystorm 750 RS240 water cooling kit, along with an EK Acrylic CSQ waterblock for my MSI 7950 TFIII. With a Corsair H70, my 1100T (3.9GHz) idled at 32C and load at 47C. With the stock Twin Frozr cooler, my 7950 (1100MHz core/1575MHz memory) idled at 28C and load at 72C with fans at 65%.

I can't believe the change with my new water setup. Now, both my 1100T and 7950 idle at ambient room temp, 22C, and full load at 41C after an hour of prime95 and MSI kombustor. The VRMs on the 7950 sit at 40C. I think I got a good 7950 with its 91.4% ASIC quality, because I'm at 1100MHz GPU with 1.094V core. My 1100T is the opposite, and I sort of hit a wall at 4GHz where I need to crank the voltage and my temps just shoot up. I just can't believe the temps I'm getting now, with just one thin-profile 240 radiator and the two stock fans.

I can't help but feel like I'm running unusually cool for such a low-end setup. I don't really have a question, I just want to know if this seems right?

There is a lot of cooling potential in radiators and I think that most people underestimate them and it rubs off on a lot of people. Nice job, its a good feeling when your blown away at how well something performs. GPUs benefit greatly with water cooling its awesome. thumb.gif

I've wanted to get another 7950 to Crossfire, but it has always run hot and I wasn't sure how it'd be with another one inside. My 5870 Crossfire setup ran really hot. I'd have no problem adding another 7950 now.
