Good temps for a 240. Honestly have no idea what I did wrong. Its getting worse. 20min Heaven bench, gpu only, 55c. May as well go back to my old setup. Chalk this one down as a loss.

That's just the fan profile. Under gaming load both my cpu and gpu are pushing 60c. The gpu tends to run a few degrees cooler than cpu. Gpu around 55 and cpu around 58-60 pushing the rpm of the predator to around 60% or so. Still decent temps considering I'm cooling with a single 240.

Honestly don't know what's wrong with yours. Maybe it's a bad pump? Air stuck in the loop somewhere?

Have to keep fans @ 1200rpm to keep it at 60c/70c. Temp still slowly rises. 1200rpm is too noisy compared to the old setup.


Pump is quiet. No rattling. 3000rpm speed. Seems ok.


Topped off the reservoir with a few drops. No air noises during operation. No air bubbles in gpu block. Can't see inside cpu block.

Only thing left is cpu delid. But not sure if that will do much for the gpu only load temp.

Could be possible that I stuffed the block installs. There's not much to it. What could go wrong?

Since you said you re seated the cpu block a few times I'm gonna assume that the plastic protective cover on the block isn't on smile.gif

I think it's a bad pump. That's all I got. As hot as haswells are they're not THAT hot. And I'm getting better temps on a haswell, a MAXWELL, and on a single 240. There's something wrong with your predator.

If I put the 3/8x1/2 tubing on the stock rotary fitting will it be a problem?

I'm surprised by that because the Predator is meant to be expandable....including the fittings. I know a few members here changed their fittings maybe they can confirm that they didn't have any issues with the inlet port.

You can't put 3/8x1/2 on our rotary fittings. The compression ring is made for the 5/8 OD and if you attempt to use it with 1/2 OD it will leak since it won't compress the tubing correctly.

You should learn to do some cable management before adding anything else to that PC.
post #5619 of 7180
that is one of my plans before installing the new cooler
post #5620 of 7180
which program are you using to check the pump speed?
