Erm...

Now that I have stopped being facetious.


What is you ambient temperature? What is the water temperature? If possible measure both during a folding run and report back with what you get. It should give some clues as to where the system isn't performing as well as it should.

You can try another TIM (Shin Etsu, as mentioned previously, is good and not electrically conductive ), you might loose a few degrees there.

Re-mounting your block might help, depending on how well it is mounted at the moment.

Distilled and PT Nuke, some copper sulphate solution or a silver killcoil should be all you need for coolant. I'm with The_Punisher here on the corrosion, I would like to know more about that. You should not be seeing any if you are running all copper components (which you have listed) and distilled water (which you were). Interesting.

Lol yeah I meant electrically conductive, tee hee
Thing is my loop was starting to corrode for some weird reason, so I need it. Luckily my blocks are alright tho.

My ambient temperature is 21C, and the tubes feel hot... that's all I know.

Unfortunately I can't find shin etsu anywhere. Trying some MX-2 instead.

I'll order some biocide and anti-corrosive additive next month. If that doesn't help it, I'll try adding a 120 rad.

EDIT temps stay below 70 for the first 12 hours or so, if that helps for comparison.
Also, I might add that everyone who enters my room says "OH WOW IT'S HOT IN HERE!!". I'm in Denmark aka the cold north. The only source of heat is my computer. So I guess that there really is a lot of heat being transferred.

Okay folding for two days non stop my temperature is now at about 64C... haven't changed my coolant or reseated the cpu block yet. But I'll get to that in next month.

EDIT forgot to mention the point of this post.
Having my door open, just a bit, brings down the temperatures. Will probably get even better with the MX2 tim and distilled water! Also making some changes in regards of airflow that might help.

^^If your ambient temps are high...the warm air 'cooling' your rads will be less effective.

for your OC and your gpu the 74°C ( i guess its the highest coretemp, not cpuCase) and a long term run it sounds ok. to me.. i had some similar problems and my temps were even worse until i changed my loop order and added four more fans to have push pull!

my order was res-pump-rad-rad-cpu-vga.. i changed it to res-pump-rad-cpu-rad-vga.
the explanation of one guy here was that maybe one rad brought the water to the cooles possible point so the second rad after it did not get the chance to fully do its job.. the idea was cpu- first rad with its max potential, then gpu and again a rad that used its max potential instead of having them one after another so they did not allow each other to max out the delta.. hope this helps. goodluck!

My AMD x6 doesn't go above 25c while folding at 4ghz with 1.4v. And this is with 2 gtx 480s in the same loop with only 1 360 gtx rad mounted externally. Dump the antifreeze bud and just use straight distilled.

Could be if his ambient room temps are sub 15c! My q9650 w/ 1x 480 on 360 never gets below 50c while crunching with 23c ambient temps.

Maybe I'm just not in the loop (ha ha) but...why does the GTX 240 have faster fans in push than in pull? Won't that cause a buildup of pressure in the rad? Radiators lose heat by way of the air leaving them. Having air go in faster than it comes out doesn't seem optimal.

Let me know if I'm missing something
