E8400 at 50C in new loop

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 


Well I finally got this CPU only loop running while cooling an E8400. I looked at the temp in the bios on the first boot and saw that it was idling at 50°C!

I'm using an MCP655-B, D-Tek Fuzion, GTX 360 rad with 3 88cfm fans pulling.
The right amount of Arctic Silver, the waterblock is on tight, no air bubbles, not overclocked... I don't know whats causing this.

I would expect much lower temps.

Could this be a problem with the fluid? I've used distilled water mixed with the HydryX stuff that came with the pump. (1:1)

What are u using to read the temps, if using coretemp, some have said i think its does not read the sensor right, People have also said Realtemp gives the right temp reading, and if those don't work, your sensor maybe messed up and try to get some kinda probe in there to get a reading

Its what my BIOS tells me. I have a Thermohawk surface temp monitor..

OK, the chipset's cooling sinks are really getting in the way but the edge of the copper heatsink on the waterblock doesn't FEEL warm. But rather room temp. Its under 35°c

The heatsink connected to the southbridge above it is 50°C though.



BTW I'm having other problems right now with my RAM, I'm running memtest86. Probably a retarded idea I know.

Edit: After running memtest86 for a half of an hour, its still 49-50°c.

Edit2: I'm not totally sure about this but before this happened I had to update the BIOS to support the Wolfdale and had an e6400 in there. With the watercooling I think it showed around 32°c.

Edit3: Real Temp says it is 29°c.

You are mixing hydryx 1:1? You should be mixing one 2 ounce bottle to every 33 ounces of distilled water. That's hardly 1:1 and that could be your issue. That is still a very high idle and I wouldn't think a mixing error would cause that high of an idle temp. Good Luck!
