My delta's seem a little high.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I haven't fully broken in my WCing yet, it's still pumping out bubbles every now and again, the water line recedes a little everyday, at least I hope it's bleeding, I've looked for leaks 100 times over.

Anyway, my delta's are around 40* C. A little high for WCing.

Setup: 920 @ 4.3GHz, HT on, 1.4125V.
RX360, Pull, fans with about 2mm/h20 static pressure.
Rasa CPU block.
MCP655-B pump.
5970 is in the same loop.

Load temps through IBT on 5000MB of mem are abouts 70-75, the cores have a lot of fluctuation though. This is about 20* less than my Megashadow on 4.2. So I'm not complaining, but I was hoping for a little lower. Would fans be my best bet, that and letting the loop run for longer to get out all the air?

I assume first you mean your #'s.

Second, for a i7, @ 1.41v, HT on and 4.3, those are expected temps.
Puny Power!

Oh, cool, I have a 5970 in the loop too, I forgot to mention.

I was hoping for a little lesser in temps, I'm might pick up some Gentle Typhoons sometime and whack those in push/pull. I want to try and slowly convert my computer from red to white :3

Thanks for the help! +rep.

Okay yeah the 5970 would definitley add to that. To be honest with all that those are very good temps.

My 860 @ 1.34v gets up to almost 80 under my H50 with ALOT of air moving through my rad.

I spread it out myself though :/

I guess I could re-apply, are there any tricks to MX-4?

What fans do you have on your H50?

EDIT: I put the back panel on. 10* drop.

How hot is it over in Sydney these days?

Just a little update I guess you could call it.

As more bubbles drain the temps go down and down. It's also getting colder and colder as it's night time...

I'll check 'em in the morning, temps aren't cracking 70* now. Still a little hot for my likings, still around abouts the same delta's. Could over tightening the screws on my CPU water block cause this? I think I should loosen them a little...

I think if you only have one set of fans, you are supposed to put them pushing because push does most of the work.
