Analyzing my WCing temp change results, your thoughts please. - Page 2

The benchmark test has the pump hooked up like this:

Pump --> Pump --> Pump ...etc. It has no load. Obviously it's flow rate will be much, much lower when you add restriction to your loop.

If you really want to get a better pump you could try the XSPC Dual Bay Reservoir for Laing DDC One + MCP 355.

I have the WCing bug and will probably eventually upgrade to that very combo.

However....

I posting to you right now from a 4.4ghz i7 950. I would have never dreamed of reaching 4.4ghz on my nh-d14. Granted, I am not verified stable yet, but everything so far is passing. I am seeing temps right at 70 (bouncing from 69 to 70 in intelburn), but for 4.4ghz at 1.37v with ht off...

Crazy thing is, the idle temps did not change from 4.0ghz at 1.27v to 4.4ghz at 1.37v.

I can prob bump the voltage down some more, but want to get for sure stable 1st.

Dual loop will not help much if at all based on Skinnee or Martin's tests. I think Charlie is on the right track with the mount or a block somewhere....

Forgetting to ask whats the ambient temp? This affect water cooling greatly!

but my Single GPU and CPU on my 480 rad run like so:

GPU - 45C load
CPU - 74C load

I noticed that my Wc setup really didnt lower idles it lowered the top end by a lot as you push the clocks highers. My temps are for 4.3 @ 1.35v

I have decided what I going to do and would like your thoughts.

It's based on this chart by martin -



That chart shows the flow rate for my pump with a SINGLE 120 rad, cpu block, and 2 GPU blocks at a little over 1 GPM.

I have a cpu block, 2 GPU full blocks, a GPU block crossfire Bridge, and 2 radiators (RX360 and RS240). Based on the chart above, I have to be getting less 1 GPM flow rate due to the fact that I have 480mm more radiator (one is the dual GTX rad) and the GPU bridge.

Based of this, here is why I think I am getting good GPU temps, and only so so CPU temps -

The flow in my loop goes res/pump -> 240 rad -> CPU block -> 360 rad -> GPUs -> pump/res. Since my flow is lacking, I am betting that my loop's temps never stabilize. The GPUs are cooled good cause the water cooling it is coming from the RX360 while my CPU is cooled by water coming from the RS240 after it is heated by my massive heat producing GPUs.

I am going to purchase a mpc355 and the xspc res that can house it. I will install it in a few weeks when I come home from vacation and will report back here with the results.

I understand what you're trying to say but you're off... The gpu blocks he used are universal blocks that are pretty damn restrictive compared to a full cover block. The temps in your loop DO stabilize, you're just expecting amazing temps out of this with you're overclock. Oh and your gpu's don't push as much heat as you think either.
