Major heat problems... - Page 2

post #11 of 27
Thread Starter 
Too much TIM? You mean thermal paste? I put 1mm of Shin Etsu (1mm from 3 to 2 on the tube).

Vcore is at stock 1.3V...

As far as ambients go i dont knwo them. The room is not hot its below 30 degrees. The case on the other hand i dont know :/

I changed the direction of of both side fans to pull air out... The GPU is getting extremely risky at 85o which i don't like, thats why i bought the GT afterall.

The cpu on the other stays the same temps as idle even while running two instnaces of wow :/ Go figure!

Firann, TIM stands for thermal interface material. The amount of TIM needed should be very small. A small uncooked rice grain is sufficient if placed in the middle of IHS. The DIE is in the middle on the wafer so that's all you need.

What were your temps like when you tested with air? If you didn't test with air before setting up the WCing is it possible for you to test with a cooler now? How about the same for the video card? 85C is extremely high but not uncommon(X850's hit that high back in the day). Is that at idle or load?

Good luck

GPU is on air. Thermalright HR GT3 cooler. In the previous case it idled at 30 now it idles at 60o

For the CPU i havent tested it on air. As far as grain of salt goes... 1 mm in the middle is like the slim end of a thumbscrew I guess that could be considered too much eh?

Heres my 10 cents;
The graphics card you say has a Thermalright HR-GT3? Mine have HR-03's on them. They were giving out A LOT of heat and this in turn was heating up the air around my Tuniq and in turn increasing temps for it.
Could this be the case for your radiator..?
I know nothing about water cooling but is the heat from the Graphics card being expelled immediately?
Good luck

Thats what my guess the problem is aswell... The GPU is too hot and rises the temp of the case by alot. The problem is how do i cool the GPU adequatly at this point :/

I think we should just let go of this thread here i started a thread in the case area... I don't want to double post and waste valueble space ;P

Firann, did you apply thermal compound to the GPU before mounting the new cooler? Do you have the stock cooler to test with? To reiterate how are the fans setup in your CM690?

Let us know

Good luck

Yeap remounted the cooler to the GPU today aswell on the CPU... I have the top 2 fans blowing air IN through the rad, and the two side fans pulling air OUT of the case.

The air the passes through the rad is still rather cool, the out from the GPU area though is quite hot.

I will test the stock cooler again, maybe since the stock will blow the air out of the case it will help better... At this point im thinking that maybe going water on the GPU is the best way.

Firann, with the two fans blowing air into the case through the radiator is that actually bringing in warm air?

Good luck

Here's a thought: Have you checked whether or not your water pump(s) is(are) working? If the water's not moving and circulating throughout your system, then that would definitely cause high temperatures.

Pump is working fine im 100% sure of it as 2 days ago when i had my 6000, i mistakenly pulled the pump plug out of the power and the pc shut down for 1 hour. Thankfully the processor didnt fry, but heck that was a rush the first 10 mins when i could;t figure out why the pc wasnt booting
