Okay. I suspect the proximity of your graphics card may have something to do with it when the case is closed. 68c is hot.
I usually manually set the fan to 60% and it goes down to high 40's
I further suspect you have it set to intake, that is, your fan is sucking in air to your rad... is that correct?
Yes my rad fan is set to intake
Option: Move your rad to a fan port that isnt near a heat source, eg your rear exhaust port.
If i open the sidepanel and have it open for a few hours.. with rad not being close to anything.. same results..
If you have reseated, then the pump is probably on correctly.
yes i've reseated it like 5 times.. the best combo was 47 45 51 51 deg idling ~ 2-3% cpu usage.
My other concern is your fan speed as indicted by your FANINO - I again suspect thats your pump, yes?.
FANIN0 is my CPU FAN.. I used SpeedFan (the program) to make it at 100% but the difference is very minimal.. nothing special like my GPU. my GPU runs at 61-65 deg at 37%.. i put the fan at 60% when i started writing this post and its already at 45deg. so 23% for my GPU = 16deg difference
Make sure it has 100% power. Either plug it directly into the PSU via a molex or make sure the header you have it plugged into is 12v and set to 100%.
you mean the 3pin thing that i plugged in ?
In short... move your rad and make sure your pump is at 100% power - it should be running at @ 1400 + rpm and see how that goes
with open sidepanel and fan running at 100% @ 1700rpm you can see the picture.. also all case fans are on max
With all fan-cases on max speed.. i see noticeably 6deg in motherboard. 6deg in CPU overall (not cpu cores) 3deg in GPU... but only like 1deg overall in CPU Cores..Edited by nickbunyun - 3/15/10 at 9:04am
