Need to drop CPU loop temps... - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I'd play with the nozzle before I tried anything else. Put in a smaller one. If that doesn't work or makes it worse I'd try a larger one or not one at all. A litlle experimentation could save you some cash.

I dont mind spending the 50 UK pounds for a decent 360 rad tbh. Won't buy it locally anyway as selection for CPU cooling sucks and its way overpriced!

Thanks all for the suggestions! I might get the Fesser Xchnager 360 rad and give the old gal a try ^^

Which one gets lower temps isn't really the issue if the rad cannot cool the load in the first place.

The Phenom 9850 is rated at ~ 125 watts of heat
The Radeon 4870 is rated at ~ 160 watts of heat ... each

With two Radeons in the loop ~ 300-350 watts ... depending on overclocking. ( I'm gonna guess these are not the 4870 X2's which would double the heat load once again )

I'd rather keep everything cool rather than one item cooler and the other one just getting by.
