Is this temp right for a water cooling?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I just installed my old Asetek Waterchill Xternal to my new q6600 and Asus P5K dexlue setup. There is one CPU block and one NB chipset block in the loop. For those of you who are not familiar with this water cooling kit...

240mm black ice copper radiator
12v extreme pump @ 1000LPH
1 inlet / 2 outlet Antarctica waterblock
4 Adda 120mm fans

HERE IS WHAT I HAVE

Q6600 @ 3Ghz / 1.27vcore
AS5 thermal paste on for 24 hrs
4 fans speed @ 1850 RPM
Ambient temp 28c
Air temp passing through radiator 32c
Coolant /water temp 35.2c @ Orthos load test (FluidXP)
CPU idle 49c and load 72c (Orthos test)

I noticed the temp are quite high even for a Q6600 @ 3Ghz. The test done for Thermalright ULTRA 120 cooling shows air can cool this CPU to 32c idle and 41c at load. Eventhough the ambient temp for that test is only 22c. But still.... could there be anything wrong with my setup? I just replace the old pump with a brand new one and cleaned the loop throughly.

*note: The last time I used this kit is on my old dual E6600 @ 3.2Ghz + P5N32E SLI. The CPU idle @ 29c Orthos 100% load @ 37c. I was using 100% water instead of FluidXP as coolant. Also, I had Laboratory's Liquid Pro as thermal compound instead of AS5 (it is a mercury like compound which reduce my load temp by 7c when compare with AS5). The ambient temp is probably around 22c at that time.

That seems very high for what is a pretty good cooling system. fluidxp will generally run 2-3c warmer than straight water because of the slightly thicker consistancy of the fluid. I would try reseating the waterblock.

That's way high. The last time I got temps like that I had forgotten to remove the plastic film on the WB

Cyberdruid, what is your Ambient, idle and load temp for Q6600 @ stock FSB?

BTW, the temps I listed are core temp reported by Coretemp0.95. The CPU temperature reported by the PC Probe II is 39c idle and 51c load. My only explaination for this weird temp is my high ambient temp 82f / 28c. I intentionally left my AC off during this test so I could stress the system. As you can see from the Air pasting through rad is around 32c.

The water block is seated properly. I even polished the surface to make sure it is completely flat. When I pulled the block from CPU, I can see a perfect layer of AS5 been transport to the waterblock. It shows a good contact between the two.

Yeah I'm with the other guys try a remount and make sure your getting good flow through the loop....Thats way to high a temp's....

It appear to have reasonable flow rate when I looking through the reservoir. However I can't determine the velocity. The only thing I can think of that may restrict the flow rate is the Koolance quick release shutoff valve (http://www.koolance.com/shop/product...roducts_id=360) installed in the loop. The internal mechanism of this adaptor has a narrow passage.

I guess I will try to remove the quick release valves from the loop and see if it improve the temperature.

Can anyone with a Q6600 post their ambient / idle / load core temperature (measure by core temp)? Please also state your cooling and cpu frequency.

I find it hard to conceive that you're using a kit with a Quad.

This external kit suppose to be sufficient for Quad and it is rated 200w of heat dissipation (extreme pump 1000lph + Black Ice Dual 240mm rad + Antarctica water block). When I had it on my old P5N32E SLI / E6600, my temp never go above 37c on 100% load @ 3.25Ghz (1.45vcore) and it idle only 2~3c above ambient temp. Honestly, I don't know what went wrong this time. Maybe my room temp is too high? or those dam koolance quickrelease adaptors are restricting flow?

Can someone post their Q6600 core temp (including their ambient temp and clock)? So I can have an idea of what to expect...

Honestly, 70c at load is perfectly safe for Q6600 since thermal slow down won't be triggered until 100c. It has a higher heat tolerance than an E6600. In fact, it does 70c under load on stock cooler at stock clock.

My apologies, but 70º on stock cooling seems like a teen scream to me.

Yeah, my e6600 does -7ºC @ Idle and 7ºC @ Full Load w/ 3.6Gb @ 360/1440MHz @ 1.35v according to Everest Ultimate, TAT and Core Temp.
