Pump should always running at constant speed. Corsair link show pump running at 1849 RPM. Core Temp show average idle temp is ~34C. That's better but slightly high.

There has been minimal difference between this and my 212+ air cooler.
£80 really wasn't worth the difference I've had frown.gif
At least it's quiet I suppose.

my pump is running at 2220

By changing the dividers, one gives me about 4400 four gives me about 1000 and six about 700


scratching my head wondering how you have yours running at 1849

+ when not gaming i use the quiet preset. Still keeps my cpu at 31c when idling.

Zero, what does your coolant temp get up to on 100% load?

Hey I wanted to see what peoples input would be. I am using a Corsair H100i with the Noctua NP 120mm Focused Fans that are 1500/1300 RPM. I have heard good things about using a Radiator Shroud to increase cooling performance by decreasing dead zones, so my question is I wanted to see how you guys would weigh in on purchasing a Radiator Shroud for this purpose.
post #22366 of 28369
Just take 2 old 120mm fans and cut the blades and support arms out and use the frames to test if shrouds will help. Not sure how much better it'll be but it's worth a test. If the frames help then buy the proper shrouds.

Ok mounting it as an intake reduces the temps by an appreciable amount redface.gif

I also decided for S & G's to purchase the Indigo Xtreme Precision Engineered Thermal Interface (ETI) Kit for AMD AMx/FMx from FrozenCPU to see if it will also make any sort of difference. Thought it would be fun to test instead of conventional Thermal Paste. Supposedly the Bulk Thermal Conductivity: >20 W/mK compared to Phobya HeGrease Extreme Thermal Paste which is 8.5 W / mK. I will post the results when I get the Indigo Xtreme. I also considered mounting two more Noctua NP 120mm Focused Fans above the radiator and leaving two underneath to see if I can improve airflow through the Corsair H100i radiator or do you think this would be a waste of money?

I just got a h80i and am using in a Silverstone FT02. For one thing my idle temps are extremely high. I am running a 4.6ghz and have some settings turned off or whatever so it stays there for the most part. Right now for example CPUID Hardware is telling me my idle temps is at a 49c..I'm coming from a H100 and the idle temps were always a bit warm however I attributed it to what I mentioned above. Whenever I gamed or ran some benches temps stayed in the high 60's - mid 70s so I just left it alone.

Testing on the H80i though and it got up to the mid 80s before I stopped. I'm wondering if this is because I have the fans on wrong. The FT02 has 3 180mm fans as intakes, with the one 120mm (where the H80i is in push/pull). I need this to be in exhaust configuration, and there were no mentions on the fan as to which direction that was. Which side of the fan is correct for this?

I have a moment sometimes and usually connect my fans and will use a light piece of paper to make sure that I have the fans pointing in the right direction and have changed the direction of every fan in my case and even the PSU to find the best temps for my case. I have even for S & G's changed the fans and use a piece of paper or a cigarette and blow it in to see how the smoke flows through my case. Maybe a little extreme but it will show you how your air travels and if their are dead spots.
