Air vs. Water CPU Temps

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have the whole XSPC Rasa 750 Kit and haven't installed yet.

My current CPU temp idle at stock with stock fan is 32-34C. This is with a ****ty midtower with absolutely almost no cooling in the case either (if that matters).

What should I use to put some load on my CPU and test those temps?




Also when I install this kit into a HAF X what temps should I be seeing?

Intel Burn Test or Prime95 (I prefer IBT)

I use OCCT, it can bench anything (even your PSU) and pushes it harder then anything else I have used.

(Harder then folding, which BTW is harder then IBT and others)

Dont worry about idle. Load is what matters.

All I know is when I had a Corsair H50 my load temps (Prime 95, IBT, LinX) @ 4.2GHz were hitting the 90Cs. Now with my EK Supreme HF I dont even hit 75C at 4.5Ghz. Room temps were 25C.

So if I were you, I expect very good things.

Prime95. If you run IBT or OCCT, your motherboard will catch on fire.

Since a couple of posts made me paranoid about nothing apparently. How long should I test for? I'm only testing on stock for now because I never actually checked what regular temps I get on air. - Yes it is the stock fan.
