8350 and GTX780

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
So I have my GTX 780 w/Hydro block and my FX-8350 OC to 4.8Ghz both being cooled with the XSPC EX360. My only concerns are that while my GPU temps are lower (26 min,28 avg,53 max) . My processor doesn't seem too have cooled much more than when i had my H100 on it. The order of the loops goes Res/Pump>CPU>Rad>GPU>Res/Pump. Warm air does exhaust out the top of the case with the included fans on the Rad as well as 2x200mm case fans on top. Air inside the case is cool and even exhausting out the rear its cool. So, I'm wondering if I should either A)get better fans for the radiator, B)Reverse the order of the loop ( switching the inlet and outlet so gpu gets cooled 1st), or C) Add another radiator after the GPU block. First time here so any help or point in the right direction would be great .. Thanks

A 360 rad is really only just enough for a CPU + GPU, since the H100 is a great CLC if the CPU temps are similar to that I believe it should be acceptable (depending on what the temps are, please specify). It really should be OK for you if you only hit 240 CLC temps with two such hot parts on a single slim 360.

If you really believe you could be doing better you could try remounting the water block or changing TIM, and if that doesn't work adding more rad space (looks like you have the Switch 810, it can support a 240 on front or bottom, both possible with push-pull).

I did think about the thermal paste option as i did only use the included one, but the temps today are 35min and 60max. Yesterday while rendering a video it got to 64C max. Case is the Phantom 820

Hmm well that is a rather high OC, but the CPU temps are also not the best. It could just be because the 8350 and 780 both produce a lot of heat, more than the EX360 can handle, maybe. Maybe try remounting the CPU, then if that doesn't work changing TIM, then again if results are still the same I would add another 240 to the loop somehow if you can with the 820.

Do you think the included pump could handle that ? I do have a spot on the bottom of the case for a 240mm its just a was down there lol

older setup but I'd have to remove the inner case fan( which really no longer serves a purpose) just not sure about the bending of the tube to reach the drive bay

also if anything I suppose I could just lower the clock back to 4.5Ghz or even stock and see the differences

Hmm well I guess you could try that, if only to see the difference (as you said).

Also I've been looking into getting some Noctua fans I believe the NF-F12 PWM since they are designed for high pressure. I was think that it could help move the cooler air inside the case out quicker thus cooling the loop better.

it won't work unless the ambient air in the case is significantly higher then the air outside the case (like +5C or more). For example, in my case, the ambient at is almost never more then 1C higher then the room temp. basically my case is almost as good as a test bench. Adding more fans or different fans inside the case or mounted on the case won't help my cpu temps on my h100... because the air getting to the h100 is already pretty much as cool as it's going to get.

as other posters have been trying to tell you, you probably don't have enough radiator on that loop... you are trying to cool two very hot parts with just one radiator... and as a result it's unlikely sufficient for all the heat energy you're trying to get rid of. you can add more fans to the rad, getting some push/pull action might help a bit (i'm not sure those top case fans actually help much). you can improve the fans on the rad... or you can add more rad... otherwise i'm not sure what else to tell you.

Ok, my previous question if I do add a 240 after the GPU would that pump be sufficient enough ?
