79C i7 load under water? Help meh

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I just got my loop up and running, my video card temps are amazing, but my i7 temps are making me cry a bit.



Loop (Arrow points in flow direction):
DD-CPX1 Pump>Feser 480 Rad>DD MC-TDX CPU Block>MCW60 GPU Block>Micro Res





These temps are just a few degrees under what my Ven X kept it at (which was low 80s).

It looks like a bad spread to me.

change inlet outlet tubes on your cpu waterblock. for sure that will help, but dunno how much, it's not so efficient block anyway.

May need to get a heavier duty block - I always saw the TDX as the perfect Dual core cooler.

But start by swapping your inlet/outlets

You have the flow backwards on the cpu block, dunno how much difference it would make.

I re-did it. It dropped the temps a few degrees.
I suppose this block just isn't strong enough for 8 threads.

Dude, think you switched the tubes the other way round for your CPU block. The incoming tube should hit the middle of the block, not side.
