Thermaltake Core P5 Owners' Club - Page 306

post #3051 of 3121
Hey guys,

I've had a P5 for a while now. One thing I am having issues with is my GPU running quite warm. I get roughly 85 degrees Celsius under load quite often which is pretty darn toasty.

I have an MSI 980ti Gaming which comes with their own factory OC. It's installed close to the front of the glass in the verticle orientation.

I'm wondering if perhaps it is a little too close to the glass and not getting enough cooling? Otherwise, perhaps it needs some actual air flow going to it to try cool it down a bit.

Most of the time it is ok but Overwatch has had a few crashes and it seems likely to be a problem with the temps.

Anyone have a similar set up? What kind of temps do you get? Has anyone made any kinds of fan brackets to alleviate this issue?

Thanks

Yeah, 85 is definitely too hot. Are you running a custom fan curve in MSI Afterburner or something similar?

Remove the glass panel and see if it changes your temps. If it does not then the fans on the card may not be adjusting for temp increases. I personally am not a fan of the vertical setup, covers too much of the mobo and just like you are thinking, air may be restricted due to the front glass panel.

Hey thanks for being so helpful. Almost done!

last thing, how do I see that the 2nd end is for 5/8'' or 16mm tubing? On every website, every fitting, I never see that information, always only mention 1/4'' for what u explained but never mentions the female diameter for tubing...

Glad to be able to help, that is what this site is for. How about you post or send me some links that you are looking at so that I can show you what to look for.

Thanks for the tip. No custom anything to the card because i was afraid of the heat as it was.

I'll definitely try running without the panel, but I tend to agree with this arrangement. Shame coz it looks so badass haha.

Will give it a go and let you know.

So obviously that is a 90 deg adapter. The reason why you do not see anything about the 5/8 for your tubing size is because that 90deg has g 1/4 female threads at the end of the fitting, this is so you can attach tube fitting of your choice to go with the rest of the build. Like you would order this and a bitspower or monsoon 5/8 fitting to attach the tube to this fitting.

There are 90 deg fittings that come with the fitting at the end to fit your tube size. Here is a example:

If you find that removing the panel helps with the cooling you can set your GPU further back on the vertical rack (if you have it sitting at the farthest forward point). You can also look at mounting a 120mm fan to blow the air coming out of the GPU out of the case. You would have to think outside of the box as to mounting it but should not be that hard.

Ok so if I already bought the suitable fittings from monsoon for my tubing, I don't need to worry about that anymore and just buy my angles?

Thanks!
