Watercooled celeron overheating. [please help]

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Ok, I got this celeron, stock thermaltake waterblock, just the one that came with the tai chi case, and it's not overclocked at all right now. and the thing gets as high as 80C on a full sustained load. I use PC Probe 2 to read my temps and i cant even run windows media player without the cpu alarm going off. it's set to go off 65C. Could i be looking at a faulty sensor or something to that effect? I have a 90% distilled water 10% Alcohol mix in the system. Any thoughts?

I'd check the mount first, straigt-edge the block and IHS while you have it off and make sure it's flat...Make sure your pulling cool air through your rad...Thats super hot...You might want to try Speed-Fan and Core temp also to make sure its not just a glitch in the other...

Uhm, you should run 100% water as far as I know with some pt nuke, but that shouldn't affect you that much.

It sounds like your pump isn't running and is probably broken, you should get that fixed right away and use the stock HSF in the mean time.

I'll check the mount here in a minute, as for the pump, it's a gimpy thermaltake pump but it's working, water flow is as it's been since i bought it, so i dont think it's broken. gimpy lol but not broken. I've got alcohol in it just to kill bacteria. it doesnt hold heat as well as water does but the amount i have in it shouldnt effect the waters cooling capacity this much.

I hope you haven't messed up your impeller or something with the alcohol, a lot of plastics and rubber compounds don't play nice with alcohol...

I don't think that there is enough alcohol in the mixture to really do any damage, but it is a possibility. Everything appears to be flat, while i had it apart i cleaned everything off and reapplied thermal compound. it's idling at 35C now and it only goes up like 2 degrees with wmp playing. about 45C with full load. Could it have bee something as simple as cleaning it?

It was probably the mount...A re-mount can work wonders sometimes....Thats the first thing I do if I don't think my temp's are right...

I think I'm still going to invest in a better waterblock. the huge one with a radiator on it that i had was a pos, didnt work worth a damn. the stingers look cool. but I've been wondering, some of them look like there are 3 inlets. whats the center one for?

The center barb is the inlet and the other two are out-lets...You can either Y them back together or get a dual in res which is what I did, I figure it will give me a little more flow that way...I'd upgrade the pump to...The D-5 is a good pump....

Yep, dual line inlet res allows much better flow rate:
