I also ran a stress test last night before doing the swap and max I got was 75 celsius and after was about 65 celsius.

I've played more demanding game and never seen any that uses that much CPU.
Make sure that you do not have some virus lying around using your CPU.

This was in a bot match. Oddly enough playing a bot match is a great way to stress your cpu.

Theres a few Gigabytes hitting around that and some over 1600 also. 1591 is all i can go before unstable in benchmarks. So i normally stick to 1584 for stability in games, but i have no games that need that much OC. So i run 1500@1.187 for 24/7 usage.

So has everyone plugged the EK Predator 360mm pump head onto the Motherboard

Also is it the fans or pump that produces the noise

Is that with the stock bios or did you make adjustments to the Power Table? Those MSI and Gigabyte seem pretty solid for OC on the TI. Very nice!

In my case I have removed the vardar fans and replaced them with gentle typhoons as they are quieter, and reversed them to intake air from my front panel. Pump is still plugged into the onboard chip on the cooler, however I don't have it plugged in anywhere on the mobo, so its running at what appears to be the slowest speed.. Minimal noise but still circulating the coolant.

Working great for me so far! Just waiting to see how it does when I add my gpu to the loop.. I may have to up the pump speed then, and will connect up to my mobo for that.

Did the fans produce a lot of noise then at round 1200RPM

The vardar fans when they spin up do produce a fair bit of noise. At 1200 they're not too bad at all.. however in my case, I'm going for as silent as possible, but if you keep them at a low RPM (700-800) they are super quiet.

For me it's the fans. Ordered some Gentle Typhoons to replace them. I tried hooking the pump up to my mobo header but ended up putting it back to the Predator's controller. We the system booted and the pump got a full 12v it made an alarming amount if water noise. That kind of cavitation can wreck pumps fast. With the Predator's pump header it doesn't do that on boot.

Are the GTs really much quieter than the vardars? My vardars are running about 1300rpm now and are pretty quiet. I have a couple gt15s laying around.

Wonder if it's worth the effort to swap em. I suppose I could swap the orientation and have them as intake in the front rather than exhaust.
