Enermax ELC240, strange temps??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, this build is my first foray into water cooling in any form so I'm not sure if this is normal behaviour or if I'm correct in my suspicion.

Idle temps on a 4670K under an ELC240 are bouncing quite rapidly around the place between 40 and 53ish degrees. I'll post up a screenshot of what I'm talking about. It doesn't seem right to me but I am sure I mounted it all correctly. I have read that there was possibly an issue with some of these coolers from factory but I can't find a great deal of info on it and I don't know how to go about ensuring this system isn't suffering the same problem. I haven't tried Prime95 on here yet but I'll give it a shot and see how temps fare there.

Any info appreciated, this system isn't for me so I need to be comfortable that it's 100% before it goes to its new home.

Thanks,
Sam

I may have been jumping at shadows here. Things seem to have sorted themselves out after I removed/disabled a couple of bits of sneaky bloatware. Idles smoothly at 33degC now, and 15 minutes of Prime is giving long gentle fluctuations between 63 and 67 degC.

I don't know much about AIO coolers but these (load, at least) seem better than what I'd expect on air so I'm happy smile.gif


edit: seems water loops take a while to stabilise their temps, makes sense when you think about it I suppose. Another 15min and it's sitting at 77degC.
