Finished My First Watercooling setup

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well I finished my watercooling setup that consists of an eheim pump, dd tdx waterblock, bay reservoir, dd radiator, 120 mm fan, 1/2" tubing. Didn't run into any problems really. I'm not quite happy with temps, so I'm wondering if these sound good to you guys? 30-34 degrees idle, and 40-42 after playing FEAR for a little while? I used distilled water and hydrx uv reactive or something of the sort. Is there anything else I should put in that will make the temps cooler? Im not overclocking yet, as I would like to figure out the temps first. So any help would be appreciated, Now I'm gonna go try to find pics of tdx waterblock to see if the tubing from the radiator should go to the top of the tdx and then the bottom to the reservoir. later guys, Mike.

btw - will post pics up soon

If you don't have a fan shroud between your fan and radiator, your not totally efficient. Also, is your radiator inside your case? and do you have decent ventilation within your case if you do?
I shouldn't have to ask if you've used AS5 for your block!

I have a shroud for the radiator and yes it is in the case, i have it placed in front cuz i have an opening in front of the case. I have the fan pushing against the radiator, should I change it around where its sucking in? I have decent ventilation, and yes I did use AS5, maybe as soon as it cures i'll notice a few degrees drop in temps. Thanks, Mike.
