Are my temperatures ok??

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hello guys.

I finished my build a while back and been overclocking it ever since. I have gotten 4ghz stable but I am trying to tweak every aspect of it to make it as powerful as possible. So. The problem is I think my temps are a tad hot.

My ambient is probably around 25C if not more (yes quite hot). My CPU reaches 65C when overclocked to 4ghz with quite a low vcore if you ask me.

My water cooling is as following:

XSPC res/top + MCP350 -> GTX 570 with nickel/acetal block from EK -> GTX 570 with nickel/acetal block from EK -> XSPC RX360 with 3 Scythe GT in PULL -> CPU with EK Supreme HF Full Nickel -> XSPC RX360 with 3 scythe GT in PULL -> back to res/pump.

I have my GPUs overclocked at 900mhz with 1.1volt but they are both in idle while im stressing the CPU... So if I were to stress them as well the heat would be a lot more!

What do you reckon? Am I doing something wrong here? I spread a thin layer of MX4 over the CPU and tightened the block as much as I could.

If I place my hand on the radiators, they are not really hot. And the air coming out isnt hot at all. The air coming out of the rads feel like the ambient temp...

I have attatched pictures for you. I have attatched a curve to the fans to increase with the temp of the radiator. They run (usually) around 700-800rpm under load like this. I have tried putting them at 1850rpm, but they makes no difference. The radiator temp does increase a bit, but not much. In the image, I have calibrated the temp of the radiator to make the fans more responsive, it is NOT 40C+ in reality. According to the software the sensor is reading 35C uncalibrated.

Check out the images below.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I am getting avg of 52gflops when running LinX now. In the pic below I only got ~50gflops. I assume it is because I have way less programs running atm.

EDIT:
Just hit 66C.

65 degrees isn't too hot at all for full load.But considering your voltage and your water cooling it does seem a bit excessive.

i7's are really hot chips. I havnt put mine back at 4ghz since I installed my EK supreme but I get around 50c full load at stock. Id imagine those temps are pretty good.

Just feels weird. Pretty low vcore and 4ghz. I see people running like 1.35vcore at 4.2ghz and get these temps. I paid a lot for my water cooling, perhaps I expected too much...

I think you are just fine. Keep pressing forward! For water, it is about 5 C hotter than some others I have seen, but no where near being an issue.

You have to take into account the other people temps your referring to and their ambient temps. Ambients play a huge role. I have my computers intakes point at my AC

The temperatures are just fine with that pump and considering the 570 + CPU.

I figured it could be the pump aswell. Damnit. I guess I need something moving more water then. I wanted something silent however. Any recommendation? I chose this because of the easy XSPC top/res solution.

MCP655 will be even more silent especially if you buy the variable speed version. For the reservoir you can look bay reservoir's that can take a MCP655 if you want a neat solution (Koolance is really great but it is also very expensive) or Swiftech micro.

MCP655 > MCP350 with xspc top/res? At what speed level will the MCP655 be as efficient or more than MCP350 and how does the noise compare?
