Overheating with watercooling issue?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I hate to do this, but I really need help with this issue. It involves watercooling and also a motherboard I suspect so I posted it under motherboards. Follow this link to my thread if you please:

Again, sorry about the double-post.

It does sound like something is overheating.

Could you quote some temps such as the following

1.Ambient room temp (approx)
2.Case Temp
3.CPU temp
4.NB/SB Temps (if possible)
5.mosfett temps.

The corruption of the screen would suggest that your GPU is overheating.

Have your ensured that the water cooling lines are fully bleeded of air? Sometimes it can be difficult to get all the air out of the blocks when you first fill it.

Air is a very good insulator and could have a big effect on the system.

Just my thoughts.

The ambient room temperature is pretty cool, definitely a bit less than average room temperature. The CPU temperature is about 21 celsius at least from the sensor on top of the waterblock. The BIOS had it at 5 celsius though *shrug*. As for the NB/SB/case/mosfett, I'd have to measure those, maybe tonight or tomorrow and repost here. (By the way what is the mosfett?).

As for the air in the tubing, yeah there is a bit in there still, because I keep having to turn the case on its side to work on it (radiator is at top of tower case) and that makes it so air is in the tubes. But they're just tiny bubbles, smaller than a soda can. Can that really hurt so much?

I'm afraid it's the GPU too. I might have to buy a cheap pcie card (if such a thing exists) with a stock heatsink, throw it in there, and see if the machine still has problems...

Sounds like too much air in the system.

Yeah, do you have a reservoir or a T-line in your system? In any case, put your radiator on the floor and shake vigorously. When air comes out, try to get it to the T-line or reservoir ASAP, then fill the res/T up more to where it was before. Keep doing this until it's all bled of air, you may want to unplug your ATX power connector and jump it (green wire to any black wire on your big 20-pin connector), make sure you don't have anything else plugged in except for your pump....That is, if you have a 12v DC pump.

I've done a little more investigation into the temperature.
Room temp - normal room temp, maybe a shade cooler
CPU - Bios reports temp as 5, sensor on top of waterblock has it at 21 (*shrug*)
MB - Bios has this at 25

I suppose I'll try bleeding again before I resort to RMAing things. I'm also getting my hands on a cheap PCI video card to try and determine if it's my video cards that are overheating. We'll see how it goes.
