WC Temps not what expected

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I couldn't help but wonder if I did something wrong when I installed my Water cooling system. Big Water 760i by thermaltake. I have no leaks, and everthing tested out fine, but in Everest My CPU temp is at around 37-41c the Cores are at around 35-36c. Do I need to be more concerned about the CPU, The Cores, or both. THe temps are a bit high for my liking with the 760i. I'm wondering if anyone has almost the same setup, or water cooler, that can confirm anything. Before I had my Asus Crosshair I hade the Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe mobo and my temp were at around 32c with Air Cooling using thermaltakes V1 Copper heatsink with 120mm LED Fan. Maybe some pictures will help, I'm not to sure.

The Cores?

How many water blocks are in the loop?

What size is the radiator?

It's a thermaltake water kit........ enough said there. Thermaltake is CRAP for watercooling, I've had a leaky TT rad kill an 8800 GT of mine. I guarantee if you get higher quality products, you'll see better results.

If that is one of the kits with a single 120 radiator, thats your problem. I had a bigwater kit, didn't work to well but I added an apogee gt (40$) for a new water block and a second 120mm radiator (the cheapest I could find) and it dropped my temps from 38 idle to 28 idle. Of course, now i've ditched the kit and gone custom.

very true I would place most of the blame on the kit... its never reccomended to go with a kit because you add a little more into the price you get a great custom set. I would suggest doing what holtzman did with his...add a better CPU block (maybe a D-tek Fuzion) adding a 120 radiator or changing the radiator overall or changing the fans alot of things can fix this problem so i would suggest a few pics and maybe a bit more descrpition on the kit itself what it has and how your loop is assembled

I'm only cooling the CPU, and nothing more, but here are some pictures. I know in the manual it says that for a full tower the 2bay unit should be in bays 3-4, but i Have them in bays 5-6. I;m thinking maybe i should move them to 1-2 for better water flow, or does that not matter.


Here ar some pictures





This was my Heatsink Air cooling Fan before.


I'm also wondering when I have the side panel out temps are moderate, but when I have it out there a bit lower, so I just keep the side panel off.

The pump, block, radiator, and tubing all are sub-par... that's why your temps aren't lower.

Where is your radiator located? Does it have reasonable airflow?

Other than that, see points above

That kit is designed to completely fit in two drive bays of the case including the rad. I would guess that the airflow to the rad is horrible and screwing the heat disappation. I've heard that kit is very subpar as far as cooling goes. Dude just go with with this Cooling Solution. It will honestly cool better than what you have lol. You might want to try reseating the heatsink with some AS5 if you haven't already and try to somehow get better airflow to your rad. Good Luck~
Edit: Here is the pic of the TT WC kit so everybody can see what I'm talking about.
