First time wc setup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just setup a rasa rx240 kit with a maze5 gpu block in a CM 690 ii case. I have the q9450 OC'ed to 3.2. My temps are 44c at idle and 65c at load after 60 minutes. My ambient temp is 26c. Should I expect any better temps? Also, I didn't do the leak test. More like 3 hours, though the system has been running for more than 24 hours now. Should I worry about leaks?

Leak testing is up to in how long you run it for. The more the better. With temps it depends on your volts on your CPU and gpu. I would of gotten the rx360 kit, why you ask bigger rad, more heat dissipation. You could.get gentle typhoon fans ap-15. Or get the 2150rpm fans from here (OCN)

Thanks for the reply. I feel better about the leak test . The case can't fit a rx360 internally. I think I can add another rs120. I may be able to fit a rs240, but it looks really tight on top.

Does the gentle typhoon perform better than the kit fans? Is it quieter? The kit fans are pretty loud at 1500 rpm or so.

Also, I noticed that the xspc pump is vibrating quiet a bit. I didn't notice it when I first put it in. Is there anything I can do to dampen the vibration in the 5.25 bay?
