Hotter on water than air

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
Just finally got my i5 water-cooled and in my modded case,


so the components;
Intel I5-750
EK Supreme Block
XSPC RS360 Rad
XSPC 750 Res pump
5X Arctic cooling fans

And on stock Intel cooler it was cooler , im guessing that my loop has got more stability when i go for the 4GHz level and cooler ,

Id just like your thoughts , im thinking of getting a thicker rad though also to try get a few more degrees cooler or going for a push pull con-fig

A couple things come to mind.

1. Is the CPU block properly seated? With a 360 radiator, I would assume it would be vastly superior to a stock cooler.
2. Maybe there are air bubbles still in your loop. Tilt and shake your case around to get rid of them.
3. What kind of fans are you using? Speed, spec, etc. May help others with the information.

Blue there at 1440 RPM so says my Akasa fan contoller,

no air bubbles i belie as ive shoot the pc and its a Pump res combo so almost no need for bleeding

yeah the CPU block is seated properly, or i think more than likely i would be seeing massive overheating and ive done the Innovation cooling test papers comp and its in the to 50 of seats <not to brag> lol


And thats the fans im useinf F12's there to go with the colour scheme

re-seat the CPU block and re-apply thermal paste. Not too much or too little though, just a little pea-size dot in the middle of the CPU.

The bubbles would be in your rad, turn it up side down and around. Take a pc of glass or something flat, and scuff the block with some sand paper to see if your block is flat. You said your not push/pulling but have 5 fans, how you have them setup, do you have shrouds. There is no way air is gonna be cooler then water, something aint right. Do you have some pics.

Yup.

OP, the hoses should be transparent and not appear to have anything in them. Bleeding a loop can not only take a good deal of effort but also a good deal of time to get all the air out.

OP, which hole on the res/pump did you use for output and which as the input? And does it match the in/out of the CPU block?

i was just thinking sounds like the wrong ports were used or in/out on the block. if not, then definately reseat the block. even if you think you have done it right.

one thing you might want to check on the EK block, is the flow plates in the middle of the block. from the factory it comes with the lowest flowing profile plate. just something to check.

I've seen a few people do this, but did you take off the plastic wrapper on the CPU block, that could be a problem.
