First water cooled rig is getting too hot - Page 4

post #31 of 75
It looks to me like you have the res connected to the pump outlet.

If that is the case then you probably have no flow around your loop.

Until you fix it - it won't work at all.

Double checked:
res->pump goes in pump inlet 3
pump->cpu goes out pump outlet 1

edit : reservoir is full, i feel like pump is going like : pump - res - rest of the system - pump
and all the air bubble might be at the top most component, the top mounted radiator
Nope. It's Reservoir->Pump->CPU->Radiator->Reservoir

It has three inlets, I used #3

This may sound like a stupid suggestion, but it seems you've tried nearly everything else. So try rotating the CPU block by 90* next time you remount it. I was having somewhat similar issues with my EK block when I first got it, two of the cores were running WAY hotter than the others (like +15-20*), I rotated the block 90* so that the water flowed over the CPU from side to side instead of bottom to top and voila, temps were much better. And no it wasn't just a simple case of bad mounting the first time, I checked the TIM when I removed it and the coverage was perfect.

Will try that.
I just kinda screwed up the tubing after switching the inlet and outlet port on the cpu block so it would actually fit better sideways atm xD

You mean how the the TIM looks after i remove the block?



That's how it looks now, haven't started the PC again yet.

I noticed that the screws for the cooler start turning when I tighten the nuts(?) at some point, I haven't used a screw driver to hold them in place since the manual explicitely said not to overtighten them. But maybe it's not tight enough?

I will upload more pics of the interios tomorrow, they are in my dropbox and the web version is super slow atm. And the local copy is on the PC that I just took apart wink.gif

might not have enough pressure on the mount.

Too much thermal paste!

the block doesn't have enough pressure IMO .. excess of thermalpaste have little to non effect on the temperatures thumb.gif. I hope you can fix the problem be patient thumb.gif

looks like the areas that I circled in red are too thick so it's probably a lack of pressure, otherwise it would've squeezed out like it did on the other side of the block. check to make sure that the block mounts are not bottoming out on any capacitors or anything on the motherboard, from pics it looks to be ok but it's better to be sure. Other than that tightening it down more should help. Make sure to do it evenly and make sure if there is a backplate that it is on and tight


Also, are those fingerprints on the block/cpu?

I don't think they are fingerprints, looks more like thin areas caused by uneven pressure. Is that block not the type where you can tighten the nuts all the way? On my EK the way it mounts you can tighten the nuts all the way and the risers and threads and everything are measured perfectly to where it applies perfect pressure when its fully (hand) tightened. You shouldn't have to guess at how much you need to tighten it.
