Maximus Formula + G0 Q6600

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Need a little help, have a nice G0 with a vid of 1.2250. Lapped it, and running a the thermaltake armor case with integrated 2x120 radiator internal with 2 110cfm 120mm fans, with an externally mounted swiftech 3x120 radiator with 3 more 110cfm fans, practically sounds like a helicopter taking off. Now, here's the question... Stock pump that comes with the case, goes into the 8800GTX danger den water block, then into the cpu, into the external radiator, then to the northbridge on this special edition board, then back into the front radiator (internal). I'm seeing some pretty steep damn temps @ 1.35v actual (1.45 in bios, quite a drop eh?), getting pretty damn close to 70c. Video card is hanging in there at 51C when idling when doing an OCCT cpu stress. Northbridge doesn't exceed 45ºC, but the damn cpu, being lapped and in the same loop I would think would run MUCH cooler than this. Kind of disappointed. Booted to windows @ 4.02Ghz to run orthos and as soon as I started both orthos burns (dual affinity each) the core temps hit 95C for a split second until I shut them down. Obviously that is hotter than hell, but I'm not sure what is "normal" for this cpu, my e6600 didn't scorch nearly as bad as this! Suggestions in this bios (0907)? Thanks in advance fellas!

Reseat for sure... You want 80c tops, safe 24\\7 temps should be under 70c.

What i'd think is at fault here, is the pump. You have a lot of gear for a single pump to push through, maybe you should invest in a new pump such as the D5 Vario and a new Reservoir to go with it, that could probably improve your results.

PS. Check the Maximus Information area in my link if you need any info on your board!

QFT. The pump on those is a little weedy at best.

However, I think your best bet would be to change your order first and foremost. The way you have it, you're dumping all the heat from your GPU right onto your CPU, and that is jacking up your temps. You really should have it go pump-CPU-NB-rad1-GPU-rad2-pump.

I second this opinion!

Are you running with load line calibration enabled? If so, disable it and re-tune your Vcore. LLC makes your CPU run quite a bit hotter than with it turned off.

Yes I am running that, I'll disable and see what I can find out. Appreciate it! Looked like it was pumping "decent" but nothing extravagant with all that pressure drop going in and out of everything. I installed it on the GPU first because it ran hot as hades with the air cooler. I ordered a 3870x2 (will be getting another one after the GTX sells), and will knock it out of the loop since it idles around 48-49C. I'll check out the pumps, they're inexpensive insurance and will allow me to push this baby higher! Thanks for the advice!
