As much mesh as there is in your case enough would probably be drawn in to get the job done but balancing intake fans with exhaust fans is usually ideal. Do you have a temperature probe in the loop somewhere to see the temp of the coolant itself? If it wasn't more than a few degrees hotter than the ambient air temperature (which it shouldn't be with that much rad space and decent fans) then your problem was mostly thermal transfer from the chip itself to the water and your delid should help a lot. If the water was getting pretty warm there may be more of an airflow issue at play. Lets see what the de-lid did for you thumb.gif

Thank you for that Input smile.gif
yeah you are right. in front i have a 240 rad in push pull config to blow air in. I know it is not the "freshest" or coolest air but at least some thumb.gif

So I did it!







Temps Idle are now around 29 degrees, load ( 110W ) 65 degrees !

well I was happy to fast... Prime after 20min goes up to 130Watts and temps are around 75 degrees 1.9v 4.5ghz

Thanks for the updates and the pictures! It has been said before but I'll say it again: prime95 does not represent actual application loads. Besides I am sure you can lower that voltage!

yeah I saw it i will test later this evening smile.gif
what is the "best" programm to check instead of prime?

Max settings on Crisis 3, and Realbench.

A long Blu-ray encode with handbrake will push it to the max.

30 min real bench 4.6ghz hitting 70 degrees max @1.29v
Guess that's OK
4.7 is not worth - have to go to 1.35 and Temps going to ~80 degrees

Sounds good. Congratulations again on tweaking your chip!

Short update : I installed 2 additional Corsair SP 120mm fans and I guess the Air within the loop is slowly gone
Managed to get the CPU @4.7 Ghz @1.365 stable - temps are on the low 70 thumb.gif

Thanks to all you guys for your advices and helping me out so quick thumb.gifthumb.gif
