What are your temps with that setup? I'm looking to set something up similar to that. I only want a 240rad so i can fit it internally so I'm wondering how it handles cooling a quad. Some ambients, idle and load temps would be great. Thanks in advance

Ambient 27C
CPU Idle 31C
VGA Idle 37C

I have not stress tested it yet simply because of the fact that my temperatures are almost the same. I do have two kinks in the system on the top part of the pump and going from the NB to the VGA block. I think if I reseat my VGA and CPU block there might be better results. These are pretty much the same temperatures I had before with air. Load temps were around 48C.

Nice temps. especially with all the things in your loop, pretty damn good temps on your cpu. What voltage are these temps at? BTW, it looks great. Pics are a little blurry but look really nice.

Okay well actually I just ran a 15 minute stress test only testing two of the four cores. When I test four cores it gives the same temperatures but sometimes it can lock up from having the temp program running. Even though my idle temps are only like 1-2C lower than air was, my load temps are 5C lower! I am going to see how high I can go and post higher stress right now im at..

3.0ghz
vcore= 1.4
idle = 31C
load temps = 43C

Edit: Did stress testing on my video card also since the idle temps are about the same as air too and these results were even better! I used to get 48-50C temps after 10+ minutes of stressing then it would stay like that.

settings: 840/2000/1101
idle: 36C
stress: 42C

Sweet. I'd love to see some full load temps. I'm quite surprised how well its fairing considering you only have a 240 rad if I'm correct and you're running a loop with GPU and nb i think. Really great work and thanks for posting temps.

Hey thats great....Your load temp should go down to after you tweak on it some more..I bet you'll get another 3-5C or so better as you dial it on...

Put the v-core to her and see what she does....

Okay I put the vcore up to 1.5 and saw how high my processor will go. It does not want to go above 3.4ghz with stablility. The temperatures are 49-51C at 1.5vcore/3.4ghz. Here is where I have to make a choice. I really want to get 3.6Ghz and see my temperatures, but I am scared to go over 1.5vcore should I try it considering my temperatures at 1.5vcore or just pick one of these..

What do you think?
1.) 1.400vcore - 44C max - 43C most of the time - 3.0Ghz
2.) 1.425vcore - 48C max - 46C most of the time - 3.2Ghz
3.) 1.500vcore - 51C max - 49C most of the time - 3.4Ghz
4.) Go above 1.5vcore to try to get 3.5Ghz or 3.6Ghz and see what my temps are.

Going to run an extended test on the one that you guys think I should go with. I think since 49C-51C looks pretty good it should be good. Also even though it is set to 1.5vcore the vdroop is hardcore CPU-Z never reads 1.5vcore always from 1.43-1.45 when it's set on 1.5.. maybe its wrong. This low vcore setting makes me wanna try going higher than 1.5 to see temps is 49C average bad?

Go with the highest clock. Those temps are great considering your voltage. Thats the better than temps I get at 1.275v, but its actually 1.23v according to cpu-z. Since you have that v-droop, i think its safe to go to at least 1.55v if temps are alright since the voltage drops under load, or at least it does for me.
