Now if it is, I can only think about one issue... Maybe I'm doing the tubing in the rads through the wrong port. Do radiators have an inlet and outlet like pumps? Now I do know that I have my out port on my pump flowing into the inlet of my CPU block, so that can't be an issue.

no it does not matter about the inlet and outlet on rads!

I separated my loops but honestly, it hasn't provided anything beyond awesomeness and a tiny bit of cpu heat bleed. 5.2ghz @ 1.42v on a 4790k gets a bit crazy when I had it all run thru a single loop.

Beyond maybe, MAYBE, a un-optimized fan to radiator speed, I'm miffed.

sorry but what GPU's and what rads are you using and also what fans??

You just keep those Rad fans as intake... The rear is for exhaust... thumb.gif

in a small case I have found that too much intake can reduce cooling as you are not able to exhaust the air out of the case so you are really not pulling any air thru your rads redface.gif

Those temps are they with door on or off?? take it off and see what the temps are them??

Also I really think some better fans would help you a lot..
That's with the panels on, and off. I've done both. I know you say the SP's aren't good, but I've seen others use them with good to decent temps. Better than mine. The SP's are mainly for aesthetic reasons (which I'll be using I'm push pull on my RX480 and 240). To balance those out, I'll be using the vardars for my RX360 and 560GTS. I'll be placing that order tomorrow. I'm just waiting on the 140's too. Those vardars should balance out the SP performance.

I agree even with the SP's and the panel off that for you to have a delta on the water of 18c is bad and something wrong. You set up is still like in your picture on profile right??

what speed do you have pump set for??

With no fans I get a delta of 8 degrees and I know I have a lot of rad space but that is a over clocked 4960 and 2 TX's over clocked above 1550..

I meant to say they aren't good. Glad you caught my error and went with it lol.

My setup is exactly like the pic, however I took out that 90 degree fitting from the bottom rad. I don't even know why I had it lol. I think I had an extra and just tried to use it. So yeah, that's gone, and I also flipped the top rad fans to intake. People, also B Neg, was saying to try it with the fans the other way and I should see a decrease in temps. My temps were about the same.

I have the pump set to level 5, so about 4700 rpm. I also didn't see a change in temps with level 2, about 2500 rpm.

The only thing that I can think of that's causing these insane temps (insane temps meaning for the amount of rad space I have) is the 750D case. I believe I'm one of the few that have three rads in the 750D (because it's limiting of a larger PSU). Plus, most people don't have high end cards in their setup who use this case.

cant be the case if you have run it with the door off!!
