I think I might need to reseat my H70. I tried my overclock since the new build, and my temps were really high. Rig in sig.
Prime 95 blend test after 30 minutes.
Ambient - 19*C
Load - 61*C and rising.
Other than a re-seat, any other ideas? I have two Yate Loon High Speed fans in a push/pull setup. Thanks for the help!
Ambient: 30-32 C
Idle: 34-36 C
Load (LinX): 46-48 C
I have no shrouds, and have had the same temps since 1st mount 3months ago. I have good airflow though: 2x140mm Slipstream 1200RPM (front intake) 1x200mm Coolermaster Megaflow 700RPM (side panel intake), 1x180mm Thermaltake stock case fan 800RPM (top exhaust), 2x120mm GT-15's push/pull at max RPM with H70 (rear exhaust) and 1x140mm power supply fan in exhaust at bottom of case.
I don't think the tubes can be an issue since they are relatively rigid and thus can't be too bent or kinked like plastic hoses can. Your fans are good (Ceadderman swears by them often enough), and though you have 2 hot graphic cards (one of which does not vent air out the back), your case is big, spacious and has good options for great airflow and ventilation. If you have enough fans providing good airflow in the proper direction through your case, I'd look into checking the tightness of your screws which may be loose. If they're not, you might wanna try remounting the H70: the original TIM might have been smeared all over during installation. You'll have to put new TIM. And as has been mentioned, you need to make sure that your pump is running 100%. I'd do these before trying shrouds; lots of users don't have them, and those that do, just use them to further improve temps.
