Do my temps seem high with this setup?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
My water cooling loop specs are as follows: MCR320, Fuzion V2, MCP350, DD Bay res, 3/8 tubing. My coolant is: Distilled Water, 5% G11, drop of dawn, highlighter ink, PT Biobomb.

With my E7200 at 1.28v I am idling at about 38c with a full load of 59c via real temp. My ambient temp can't be more than 24c. The system should be fully bled. Should I flush the coolant and just run Distilled water with like 2% G11 and nothing else? I dont have a window so I could just get feser tubes. This just seems a little high for me. Right now my chip is oced from 2.53 to 3.8.

Do you have any fans on your rad? If you do, you may want to try a reseat of your CPU block. Those temps. seem a little high. Otherwise, those temps. are fine.

As for your coolant, i don't think you'd get any appreciable gain from swapping to a 98% distilled 2% G11 mix.

In which case, your temps. seem a little high to me.

Try a reseat with a better TIM when you get the opportunity.

Well I shook up my rad and moved some things around. I nocked idle down to about 35/36c with a max load of 56c. When I pick up a nb block i'll get some MX-2 and remount...

Well I ordered some MX-2 and a MCW30 nb block. We shall see what happens. When I go to cool the gpu I was going to go 1/2 inch, get a petra top and add a MCR240. Think that would be enough?
