First water cooled rig is getting too hot - Page 7

post #61 of 75
I looked at the rad specs and fans you are using and they seem a little missmatched. You need fans with hich static pressure to get good air flow threw the rad. The ones you chose are more case fans not rad fans.

Yes, I'm aware of that, but I'm still waiting for the replacements, gonna try them tomorrow, but I don't believe that's the only problem.

GPUs are flat, CPUs and cpu coolers are convexed surfaces.

just to chime in, are you sure the flow in the loop is okay?
like did you use the wrong in-let or out-let that manufacture instructs to use?

A number of sites have reviewed that block and didn't have issues with it missing the backplate. It's not optimal and definitely a bad design, buy it shouldn't be causing these temperatures.

It's possible your IHS is too convex/concave, also possible that Phobya doesn't bow their block to force good contact with concave IHS's like most other waterblocks/heatsinks do (this is made worse by the terrible mounting design not allowing you to put much pressure on the IHS). Get a razer blade and place it flat across the IHS, see if there is a gap in the middle or around the edges. Also place the razer blade on the waterblock base. If the block is convex and the IHS is concave, it should sort itself out, if they are both concave or convex then you will need to lap them.

Also you might have a particularly bad application of TIM on your CPU die from intel, do you have a standard intel heatsink or an aftermarket air cooler to compare temps with your water cooling results?

If the air cooler displays bad temps then perhaps a delid would be worthwhile, and if you do that you could lap the IHS a little and then use CLP or CLU tim on the CPU die.

Just ideas, if you really want to get better temps you might need to put some effort in and take some risks.

Before all that I would verify that your waterblock is able to make proper contact with the IHS without hitting any capacitors on the motherboard, they do look very close to the socket and tall enough to cause problems.

Thanks again for all the replies, guys!

As I said before I followed the instructions carefully and am pretty sure I used the correct ports. The pump has 5: 3 inlets, 2 outlets. According to the manual my combination (inlet 3 and outlet 2) is okay.
The only part which I'm unsure about is the orientation of the pump. It doesn't say anywhere if I need to rotate it if I use inlet 3.

I have used the cpu for a year now with a pretty big air cooler (with a backplate btw xD). Had it overclocked to a stable 4.5ghz (stock is 4.0). During stress tests it reached 65C (if I remember correclty), which I considered acceptable for air cooling.
I failed to test it right before switching to water cooling. So the comparison temps are from a year ago.



Today I will try the new fans to see if that makes any difference.
If that doesn't help I will try a different cpu block (with a friggin backplate) on monday.
I will also change the fluid to simple distilled water and optimize the loop at the pump/reservoir.

Unless somebody has any less time consuming ideas that I could try smile.gif

Your pump is OK, D5 is strong have a really high flow rate also the top cover helps a little bit.
The problem IMO is that the cpu block isn't trafering the heat to the water... the radiator is cold even with the cpu at full load ?
