Rads and res water get really hot

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I've set up my first build reading this forum.
It all works ok, but when stressing the system very hot air comes out from the radiators.
And when I touch the reservoir it's hot. So that means the water is getting pretty hot in the loop.

Is that normal? Or is something going wrong?
My temps are quite hot... Something around 35-37°C iddle and around 60° with Prime95.

My loop is:
XSPC RX360 & RX240 radiators
Alphacool Yellowstone cpu block
EK fullboard Crosshair IV block
Swiftech MCP355 pump
XSPC Dual bay res.
Noiseblocker XL2 1500rpm fans x 5 (just pulling air out of the case)

The order is:
res-pump-rx360-cpu-mobo-rx240-res

PIC:


Thanks!

It will get hot if your stressing it i guess that the CPU is over clocked , and i would think those temps are a little high but nothing out of the ordinary , with the Water and the rad getting hot that's what will happen but i do suppose you've got some good fans on there,

check if the block is seated properly but not overtightened also give it a fresh licking of thermal paste

Its normal mate, since moving from my i3 to my i7 950 @4ghz water in res is very warm and my radiator is like a fan heater. its normal

Do you have a thermometer of any sort you could stick in the reservoir? Your water shouldn't be getting so hot with that setup... what speed are the fans running at?

i also agree.. temps are normal...
knowing that your radiators are getting warm and the res water getting warm is actually a good sign... it all means that the heat is getting dissipated...

pulling warm case air out through the radiators isn't the optimal option though... i bet if you were to pull room air through them you would drop temps anywhere from 3-7c
optimal outside/inside case temps should only differ by 10c preferably less if not better case air flow should be considered

Lulz... ya.. temps are normal with that

Liquid cooling shows it's stuff more with load temps rather than idle temps.... keep that in mind.

I don't know about you, but my idle temps are pretty fantastic, especially when the cpu downclocks at idle, they are pretty much ambient temps.

And yes, that is quite normal for your water temps to be heating up your res + rads.

Fans are running at their max, they are connected to PSU 12v molex.
And yes, I thought that too... if the rads get hot, it means the heat is getting dissipated. But just wanted to be sure about that, as the heat they pull is making my room inhabitable, specially now in summer

Water/Rads getting hots means that the loop is working... I just wonder how many volts you're pushing to get a 2 rad setup that hot?

Such a high idle, you must be over volting a good bit?
AMD, I give up.

Could you post a picture of the loop? As it is easier to look at how you have it setup to see if we can spot something that way.
