This normal temps?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I know i don't have ideal parts but at 24c ambient i'm getting mid 40c's and around 54 orthos load temps at 3.2(had to downclock because of summer) fans on my rad are blowing into the rad atm..is it better to have them blow the other way?..i've used the correct amount and method of thermal paste using the artic silver guide and my block is on pretty tight...it's been bled for 4 days now also just wondering if this is normal temps with my setup.

Sounds high to me...i would have the fans pulling through your rad,,,If you don't have some decent cfm fans on your rad that could be part of the problem...a shroud would help a C or two to..

I have cheaper rads, no worries lol. I'm running 2x240 GT Stealth rads, but with 2 of them and high CFM fans, my temps are nice.

GTX-rads need HIGH airflow fans for good cooling though, pick up some Deltas (if you don't mind a blistering loud set of fans and the money) or just pick up some Sunon 108CFM fans (petrastechshop.com has them for like $9).

Sucking air = better

After that, I'm sure the problem is either your pump or WB. I'm not sure how TDXs perform with dual core chips.

Anywho, what pump and how much tubing is there(about)?

I'm using a D5 pump and about 4 feet of tubing http://www.overclock.net/gallery/sho...ser/37932/sl/g sorry for the blurry pic :S...well guess i'll try lapping and getting 4 higher CFM fans in a push/pull.

Whoa, nice case! LOVE THE SETUP!!!! lol

A+ For looks!

Yeah, the fans will help a lot. GTX rads aren't bad, but without high airflow fans, they suck lol
