First WC completed - poor temps - Page 2

post #11 of 29
Thread Starter 
CPU is allready lapped.

Rad is inside the case because its a HUGE (HUGE!!!!!!) fulltower Rocketfish case, and to mount the rad outside would make it a monstrosity. I like the clean look of it inside as well.

Do I need 1.46 Vcore....I think so yes. On air I was getting P95 sm fft errors at anything less, but I also had bad temp issues on air with a TRUE 120 at those volts as well.

I will play with it more to see what the lowest Vcore I can use to get my max stable overclock later. Right now I want to settle my temp issues

Pump is DEFINITELY plugged in and the rheostat on the D5 is at a max 5/5.

I will post pics later today, but the loop is:

CPU -> GPU -> Res -> Pump -> Rad -> (back to CPU).

Rad a the top of the case, pump on the floor of the case, res is about 1/2 (slightly less maybe 1/3rd) from the bottom.

Thx guy so far! I know pics are impt and will be posted later today

PS - I guess I can try lower on the Vcore. Its the same Q6600 in my sig but a dif mobo/dif rig and I thought i ran it higher vcore than that, but there it is in a black and white (well, blue and white ). That sig info is WAY old for me.....I dont come here enough it seems hehehehe.....

What sort of intake do you have other than that single 120 on the bottom? IE any side fans?.

Dont want to sound like a douche since idk anything about water cooling

but why are you going to your res. after your gpu...

wouldnt you get a tank of hot water.... sureley you shud go to your rad 1st the your res

I've been doing some temp testing lately....I too have a q6600 and some of the same components as you but not all.
My ambient during my initial test was 26.6 with an avg idle across the cores being 39 and load avg of 51.5
That being said I don't have a GPU in my loop (yet) and I have a BIX240 (smaller rad than you) but still, you should get better temps than what your getting unless you have a high ambient temp.
Personally I wouldn't pull the inside (warmed) air throught the rad, you'd be better off flowing the air into the case and exhausting with added fans.

There's a lot of nonsense going on in this thread....

Three things you need to check:

Ambient temp - With a single BIX 240 on my Q6600 at 1.48 vcore I idle at 34C with an ambient of 23-25C. Knowing your ambient temp will put your idle temps in perspective.

Remount - Your delta between idle and load doesn't seem that bad, but you do need make sure that D-Tek is mounted tight. Too much TIM will also hurt your temps

Fan direction on rads - may be worth experimenting with reversing the direction of fan flow over the radiator. Really shouldn't make a huge difference, but I have seen it changed idle temps by 1-2C.

What TIM are you using btw?

If your IHS isn't lapped try that, you dont have to go crazy with it just flatten it a little and use a tiny amount of paste. also remember that all chips are not created equal some will run hotter others cooler. JUst because someone else gets amazing temps does not mean you will. I think you have a little mounting issue though.

edit: Ok Isee your CPU is already lapped. Your CPU hold down may be too high, are You getting a good paste footprint when you remove it?
You may be using too much paste also.

Ambients are 24c as mentioned in the original post.

I will remount tonight and post pictures of the TIM spread on the CPU and the contact area on the FuZion.

TIM I used is ceramique.

As far as mounting I am using the D-tek pro mount kit and BOTTOMED OUT those screws with the springs. Its as dang tight as it will allow without breaking a screw.

I only have 2 case fans other than the rad fans. I am going to break out the fluke tonight and get temps of case air in middle of case, air just on the nonfan/inside of the rad, and air temps for air being blown out of rad and post back with the TIM pictures mentioned above. The 2 case fans are:

1. Outflow above the backplate
2. Intake in front of the HDs, which is quite minimal since there is a filter and the door being closed probably negates most of the inflow.

I will add another fan at the bottom (next to the pump) for intake, but other than that I dont see any other options for more fans without cutting the side door.

Any other suggestions? Thanks so far guys!!!

PS - when I remount, should I drain the loop, or can I do it full of water if I am careful?

EDIT/ADD: Someone on another forum mentioned that the rez being on top of the PSU could be a problem with warming of fluid. Do you think that is valid?

Also, another person mentioned that the FuZion appears to be oriented the wrong way. The words "D-Tek" are to the right. I am using the quad accelerator nozzle with the washer, and I thought that was the way to mount with those internal parts. Agree/disagree?

Wow, thats a rats nest of a case.

And as for the remount question: Don't worry about draining, the clamps should hold it just fine. The main point of the remount is (for me at least) a reapplication of TIM and to hopefully get better surface contact with the IHS.
