[Official] XSPC Rasa 750 RS/RX120/240/360 Kit Club - Page 1246

post #12451 of 13773
Lol so as my previous post stated I was concerned about the high temperatures I was getting with my rasa / rx240 kit. On my way home I picked up a raystorm and when I got home I noticed a slight imperfection in the plate so rather than return it I decided I was going to lap the block and my processor biggrin.gif

And so here I sit seeing the same temps as before lol ***. I'll try out some higher rpm fans tomorrow and see where that gets me.

EDIT: I threw in some 1650rpm fans and I'm still hitting 84c... Where do I go from here?

Check for any flow restrictions, if that fails then get lapping my friend! biggrin.gif
Also what is your thermal Paste spread like?

recommended quieter fans for the RX240 ?

Raystorm cpu blocks? Worth it?
Thanks for replies, still got a lot to learn about wc.

I love my Raystorm. Good temps and looks awesome.

Whats the TIM spread like on the bottom of the block?
post #12456 of 13773
I took the block off and there was a circular spread a little bigger than a nickle. Not quite enough to cover the entire chip so I cleaned it up and tried again. Temps seem to have gone down a little bit but I'm still hitting 80c. Maybe I'll pull the block off again tomorrow and take it from there but for now I need some sleep...

EDIT: spoke too soon... 87c

Looks like your pump is not running at full speed or there is something that is restricting or slowing down your flow rate, have you rotated and shook your case to get rid of air bubbles stuck in your CPU block? I once had air bubbles trapped in my CPU block when I first built my loop and temps dropped 5-7C right after it was cleared.

Never installed kit block. Raystorm 49.99 at sidewinder. Liked the looks so bought it. I can tell u runs 19 - 22 idle never seen it over 36 - 39 gaming depending on game. Im sure that all depends on room temp and case though, but thats about what i get. Im running a 2500k at 4.5. Hope that helps.
