Best EK Supreme HF configuration?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I might be switching over to just a cpu only loop soon, and I was wondering, what would be the best way to configure it for best performance?

I have an EK Supreme HF and MCP350 pump. Since the mcp350 is best at pressure, should I install the plate with the least amount of holes in it for the EK Supreme HF?

Install the one with two slots.



EDIT:



Plate #1 performs the best.

The Supreme HF achieves it's top performance with Jet Plate #1 installed (the one with the least number of holes).

Hmm, maybe that is why my cpu temps have been higher than I expected. I've been using the plate with the most holes in it. lol

With your CPU it shouldn't make more than a 2C difference, maybe you have a bad mount?

Well, temps aren't that bad, but they are usually about 60c and below load @ 4.6ghz. But that is with my gpu on full load as well, they are in the same loop.

What size of radiator are you using?

With my loop at 100% load I get 65C CPU and 41C GPU

I'm currently using dual 240's, one rx240 and one rs240 with ap-14 fans. My cpu temps max out at around 60c, and my gpu temps max around 50c.

For the cpu only loop, i'll be using just the rs240, plus the EK supreme HF and mcp350.

Why are you going back to air on the GPU?

Really, your CPU temperatures aren't going to change too much if you remove the RX240 and the GPU anyways.

Money problems.

I'm probably going to sell my gtx 580 + block and pick up a gtx 560.
