Sudden rise in temps - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I know what you are talking about. Mine does the same thing. One thing you could do when you get home would be to take a thermometer and measure you water temperature. After gaming for a hour or 2 you should be able to see what your temperature difference is between your processor and water. This will help narrow down whether the heat is not making it from the core to the water or from the water to the air.

I am seeing a 35-40C difference in CPU to water temps which is not what I expected. My water temps rarely get 2C above ambient and all I am cooling is cpu. My buddy get 50C max with 3770K @4.5 ~1.3v with a H100 while I am getting 65-70C max @4.5 ~1.3V while my water temps stay cold. I dont have a helpful answer for you at this time other than I feel ya. I am going to tear mine apart this weekend and reapply TIM ect. not that I expect it to make a difference.

I read on here a couple days ago that if your waterblock has a port in the center and another offset, you should always use the center as your inlet. The instructions for my heatkiller did not specify but I switched a couple days ago to the center being inlet and it dropped my temps a few degrees.

FYI your avatar is really distracting. I could watch that duck for hours.

Have you been out the radiator recently?

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see a rig in your sig.

You haven't mentioned GPU temp previously--what are you measuring now?

It's normal for all chip temps to jump immediately when you put a load on it, but I guess the question is whether it's too much. If you're certain nothing is different about your rig (tweaked overclock, new video card, etc), then yeah it's weird for things to suddenly change. It does seem way too soon for the TIM to have dried out, but weirder things have happened. It's unlikely, but I guess it's also not impossible that something happened to your loop eg. an air bubble worked its way in, or some other partial blockage is going on. If it was me, and I couldn't figure out what was wrong, I would drain and tear it down, then rebuild. In my experience, that's often the fastest & best way to work out the gremlins.

Another thing to keep in mind is that overclocking carries risks, and it's possible that your chip is one of the unlucky ones that just can't handle overclocking very well, and is starting to show damage.

Also, I don't think measuring water temp is going to tell you anything useful without having established a baseline to compare it to. And your room's ambient temp is a big factor in how much cooling you can achieve. You can't really compare the performance of two rigs with identical hardware without controlling for a lot of environmental factors.

Okay, well - guys, see, the problem literally just fixed itself.

Whether the sensors or the measuring software somehow ran into a bug or whatever, temps are fine again. PS2 is still running like crap all of a sudden, but hey, it's PS2. I'll be waiting for an update.

Thanks to everyone!
