My idle temps are 25C in a 70F room and i load 36C in 70F room. I can't wait till it gets colder. Today it was 55-60 and that's pretty high for NY right now, but when it's 20-30 i am going to open my windows and let in the cold and see how low i can get from that type of weather lol. In the SS it sais 28C idle but it's because i booted up HWMonitor after i started prime, yeah i know fail. I love this system =D. The next thing i am going to do is get a new MB so i can push my chip since my 1000HT link is limiting my OC... And also get more fans for computer since my MB Temp is always above 30C. My CPU temp is lower than MB at all times except under load.


All in all i am very happy about going WC, i am going to buy a hawk 5770 maybe from a dude on craigslist and i'm wondering if there is a gpu block for them?

Here is my temps!

It will keep getting hotter until it reaches equilibrium, the CPU's thermal protection kicks in, or the smoke escapes from something, whichever comes first.

How long of a Prime95 run did you do?

It is great for stability testing, but it won't heat up your system as fast, or nearly as much, as other stress test software.

Well just now i did it for like 20 minutes, i know it won't get hotter than it was after 20, i ran a 15 hour test last night to the afternoon and it didn't go above 39 but my room was in the 80s when i woke up , i was so hot i think my computer was part of the reason lol. Whats a good stability test to run? i will do it now and post pics.

Sorry i have to change my sig rig, i am using a triple radiator with the rasa pump/res and the rasa CPU. But yeah the H50 is also great, I highly recommend it. But if you want to go balls out just get the rasa kit, it's fun to set up and even better to turn it on. It's like busting a nut without the mess bro.

Also i have another question for WC'n people, I have my fans like this



Would it be better if i blow from the case to outside?? like opposite flow, or should i move my fans ontop of Rad? I'm a noob sorry.

I run the heat out of the case to my room, so I pull it from my case. Yes the air is a bit hotter than pulling from my room and exhausting elsewhere but my temps were hardly different having it set up like you do.
