My bad, I misread the wrong temps and thought 73c was GPU. 44c for GPU is good, no problem, sorry for the confusion.

It's all good. I figured that's what you meant. tongue.gif

LOAD Room Temp: 26c
LOAD Loop Temp: 31c
LOAD CPU Temp: 73c
LOAD GPU Temp: 44c
LOAD VRM Temp: 57c

ok so for that CPU clock, would you say that is a normal temp?(I don't know) I am at 4Ghz and running at 54C
to me 4.5 is a high clock, something I will do here in a couple of years, kind of like adding 2 more video cards to my system, its all done in a effort to keep the system going as long as possible, without having to replace the system for the latest and greatest all the time. for me the average has been 7 years between builds.

ok so about 4LPM through the radiators, that is a good flow rate, is that with one or two pumps?

this build runs really well, after seeing the temps I knew that right off.

well I am still working on my 5-way, hope to have all the bugs worked out, before I need the video cards lol it never works out that way, there is always a push at the end to get it all up, running, and working right.

I'd say 73c as the average high for this unrealistic test is fairly good. Keep in mind was running stress tests on both the CPU and GPU simultaneously for a solid hour, (AIDA64 + Firestrike Ultra 4k Preset looped). My 5930k will run at 4.5ghz stable all day with 1.225 volts but for extreme load I bump it to 1.300 volts to insure stability. Both my GPU's are locked at 1.255 volts under load to prevent any throttling from the, 'boost 2.0' and for this test I dropped the core from 1500mhz, (my 24/7 gaming settings) to 1400mhz just to ensure 100% stability for the unrealistic load testing.

I ran this CPU with both the Noctua NH-D14 and Corsair H100i GTX prior to setting up my water cooling loop. The Noctua had issues keeping things cool at both 1.225v and 1.300v for the unrealistic stress-testing. Some cores were hitting a little over 90c. For the everyday load it was just fine running at either of those volts, only hitting a little over 80c. The Corsair H100i actually performs very similar to my current setup. Most AIO watercoolers these days perform admirably. The Corsair AIO would be able to run those volts under the unrealistic stress keeping all cores around 85c, (which from what I've read is where you want to be with these CPU's).

Also, when I say, unrealistic I'm referring to my setup. I know there are some real-world tasks that'll stress CPU's as hard as a stress-test like AIDA64 but for my usages I rarely load my CPU with anywhere near that amount of stress. So, it's unrealistic in my world. smile.gif

To be perfectly honest I really didn't set up this watercooling loop to see how far I could push things. I was able to hit all these overclocks before the loop was installed. My main reasoning for the loop can really be broken down into two parts.

1: A powerful and totally silent build. I cannot hear my computer at all over the ambient sound of my air purifier set to it's lowest settings. It's beautiful.
2: I found that I had gotten to a place in my life where I could comfortably invest into a setup like this. I wanted a badass looking rig like the images I had floating around in my mind since I first saw what could be done with water inside a PC. To me, it's as much a form of art as the Mona Lisa.

Since my CPU can run 24/7 stable at 4.5ghz with 1.225 volts it probably has a little left in it. Maybe one day I'll push and see. As for both my GPU's. I hit a rather large jackpot with one of them. I know that ASIC score isn't everything but in my case it seems to matter. I ordered both my GPU's the second they became available through BestBuy.com. When I picked them up their serial numbers were one after another, brother cards. The first one has an ASIC score of 83% and the second is 74%. The card with 74% will run 1500mhz core and 2000mhz memory all day BUT it can't do anymore, no matter how many volts you toss at it. The card with 83% can run MUCH further. I haven't really found what it's max core is yet. Since the card with 74% can only hit 1500mhz I figured it really didn't matter. During the process of installing the waterblocks there were a few days where I was only running the 83% ASIC score card in my system. Using the STOCK bios I was able to complete all three Firestrike, (1080p, 1440p, and 4k) tests with a boostclock of 1580mhz. The card was STARVING for power at that speed and I just could not get anymore out of it due to boost 2.0 throttling. With the custom bios giving it the extra volts / power limit it was craving it may even run through at 1600mhz core now. Maybe one day I'll find out. Like I was saying, I could only find the power limit for the stock BIOS on that card, not the core OC limit. tongue.gif

This is NICE. Its surely a big step to take and have trust in running it daily. I ran mine with the panel off for about a week to be able to quickly catch a leak if need be. Of course, you could never be fast enough in most cases anyway.

given what ive assumed asic to be, a lower asic can be run faster under water. find its new top clock and sync speeds to the other. then always run your higher clocker as primary so when you play SLI-challenged games, you still have top clocks to play with.

Those are two perfectly good reasons to water cool. Water cooling is mainstream now. It does take a few bucks to do, but there are more reasons to water cool now than just push the limits of hardware.
