Finnaly no more leaks!!!!!!!!!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey guys...soo finnaly after a few weeks , I managed to find out my one rad was leaking , took it out , and now no more leaks!!!!!!!!!!!!.......I sent the broken radiator to a radiator repair shop , they chopped it up into little pieces (the GTX240) , and then gave me a call saying sorry they were unable to fix it...morons.....

anyways , now im running a single GTX360 , with 1xCPU and 1xGPU , full load , the GPU is hitting 52c , and the CPU is hitting 60c (from 49 , 55c)


my question is , is could I add anather gpu block in? , cos im only cooling one of my 9800 with water?.....what kind of temp increase could I expect??


peace

I'm glad you finally got it to quit leaking.....Sux about you rad...If you put some good higher cfm fans in a push-pull on that rad you might get away with adding another GPU...Fans like this are nice..115cfm Pana..Shrouds will help to if you don't already have any.How To: Make any Sized shroud in 2 minutes..How To: Build A Performance Shroud

Your CPU temp's sound a little high, you might want to try a few re-mounts...What are your ambient temp's like?

my ambient temp is 20c , but the fans and radiator are internally mounted , soo they are getting air from inside the case.....


the top of the cosmos S shroud severely restricts airflow , with the shroud on i get 60c , with it off , 57c , the cpu temp i mesured is running furmark at the same time , CPU temp ALONE , just cpu stressing it hits 55c , with the gpu working aswell , it hits 60 , but stays at 59c most of the time......


the loop goes like this :

pump > gpu > GTX360 > CPU > res > pump.....


soo the gpu is getting the "hottest" water , but 50c full load is amazing compared to air (86c!)


anather thing that irritates me , and the reason i wana put the other card under water , is even if SLI is disabled , and i play games , my second gpu the fan starts going full blast!!!....and im not even using it!!!.....


my cpu is clocked @ 3.4ghz , 1.5125v in bios (1.47v in cpu z).....i know i know...thats a high vcore for 3.4ghz...but cant go any lower!


amazingly , when i first put the watercooling system together , it took me a day and i had a million leaks....did it perfect the second time around!!!...not a single leak! ha!

To answer your first question, I would say you SHOULD be fine.

HOWEVER....
I think you should first get your CPU temperature under control. I doubt that you have a bad seating of the CPU block. With the kind of power you are pushing through that processor, it's dissipating tons of heat. Try and get the vCore to something more reasonable. Even if you have to drop the frequency down, imho it's worth it for the life of the chip. Once you can get the processor temp in the low 50s, then you should be fine with the new block for the 2nd GPU.

Also, with your loop, I don't know if that is the best config. Personally I do pump -> CPU -> GPU -> Rad, but that is just me. You will hear lots of arguments about this...



If you look at my rig, which has the same CPU but a much less power-hungry GPU, I am able to run both maxed out in gaming and get a CPU temperature of about 49C across the cores. The GPU gets to about 53C. For reference, my vCore is less than 1.3V (not at my PC now, so I dont know what for sure) and I run everyday at 3.0Ghz.

Finally, what tubing are you using? I use masterkleer 7/16" with 1/2" barbs. Its cheaper than tygon by a LOT and it stops ALL leaks. I used to use 1/2" tubing but it was soo loose I had to use hose clamps to keep everything from leaking all the time.

gaming my temps are a lot lower , this is stressing it to the max , the hottest my gpu hits after an hour of grid , would be like 45c...and cpu like 50c.....


i think ill be ok adding anather gpu block to it....if not will have to order anather radiator then!

Yeah you might want to tweak your rig out a little and get off that high a v-core...Its nice when you can just push it on up with voltage, just don't leave it there, tweak it on back down and keep the same OC.....

Try some CPU re-mounts,after you have enjoyed a working rig for a while..... I usually do at least 4 or 5, let them burn in for a week or two each, then try to work it back down to the lowest temp that I had...

You did good....... A lot of guys would of gone home crying to Momma, you hung in there and got it going...Thats what it takes sometimes...

Try dropping down one multi and run your fsb up higher, that will get me the same OC with a little less voltage sometimes...Sometimes its the memory v-dimm that is causing crashes, you can try running looser timings or give it more juice...Up the NB voltage and play with your other chip set voltages...I don't know about Intel but with AMD the memory timings have a lot of effect on the OC, thats just something you have to go through and just change one setting at a time, then boot back up and see how it does..

Or you may have already done all that to.......I don't know...

ok...running it @ 1.5v....been stable for 10 minutes using small ftt's.....cpu z shows 1.408v under load.......


lets see if it crashes...lasted longer than if i set it @ 1.50625v...that wont even last 1 minute...odd....lower voltage = more stable........


temps have dropped by 1c....hey...its a start


59c full load....

temps are like this :

59
59
55
55

Sounding good.....A lot of times with some chips you can just push your OC on through with higher v-core, but if you tweak the whole system, ram,NB, and all that you can sometimes get the same OC with less v-core...


I don't know jack about Intel OC'ing, I'm going to have to learn I guess since I bought a E7200 the other day, think I'll get that DFI Dk P35 mobo for it...That chip looks like a fun OC'er, I had to try it...
