Are my temperatures normal? (Water cooled rig) - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Thanks for the tips, guys. I'll try resetting my CPU block with less TIM and if that doesn't work, I'l' upgrade to a newer block.

What about my GPU temps? How much TIM should I be applying on my GPU blocks?

A dot/small blob the size of an uncooked grain of rice should suffice.

I generally use Arctic Silver Ceramique on the GPU, but the standard AS5 will also work.

Same concept, a small rice drop right in the middle.
