Hey I recently got a 920. idle temps are around 40c and load is around 60c I was thinking that the idle is is a little high?

?

what is your ambient temp? also not sure how the intel goes about its "powersaving" but does your CPU stay at the same clock freq all the time..?
and are the screw on the waterblock tight enough, making proper contact, make sure you tighten the screws even-ally, try use your grip on the screw driver to judge the amount of torque you need to tighten each screw but not too tight otherwise you might crack or crush the CPU

Okay lets work on this a little further then, I'm currently working on water to refrigerated glycol heat exchanging unit. Working around temps in/out that wont create moisture. 920 is a quick fix solution.

I've built two water cooled pc's using dangerden and swiftec water blocks/pumps. I did forget to add that a reservoir makes it easier to fill and bleed a system.

Quality of the pump does not mean a thing, design and flow of the pump and specifications is another.

^^^ how could you possibly say quality of the pump does not mean a thing??????

Unless you are ok with your pump dying on you while your processor goes up in smoke, I'd say quality is one of the top things to consider especially when it comes to reliability. Sure, flow and pressure play an equally important role but you don't see anyone using pumps that tend to have a short life span.

We need more specs (ie: processor, overclock, case, etc) to be able to tell you if your idle temps are within reason based on your system. Just remember, idle temps aren't that important, you really want to focus on load temps, which in your case look good. If you haven't done any overclocking and plan to, just remember that 75C is the general temp you should stay under at 100% load.

I used the term "quality" to broadly refer to its specifications, reliability and any other attributes of merit As I said, I am no authoritative source on the subject (GPUs and other hardware are my domains). I have no need to squeeze extra performance out of the AiO system or CPU, as its performance is beyond satisfactory and few if any tasks I perform are CPU-limited. The main reason I went back to an AiO system is because my various air coolers block too much motherboard real estate from view.

Hi guys, new to the forum and need some help if possible.

I have just installed a 620, I am using push/pull exhaust with the stock fan pulling and a XSF-F1252 pushing (75CFM/2.41mmH2O).

I am running a Q6600 G0 at 3Ghz on 1.25v on a 680i lt with the P33 bios. This is in the Cooler Master CM690 (first one)

My problem is the very high temps I am getting, they equal the ageing Arctic Freezer Pro I removed. Idle is 40:40:36:39 and load with Prime95 is 63:63:58:59 using Coretemp and Open Hardware Monitor.

Like I said I got idle temps the same with my air cooler, was hoping to run around 55-60c at near on 3.5Ghz.

Anyone got any ideas how I can solve this?

Cheers in advance,

Blinky

First thing I would do is match the airflow of the push/pull fans. You might have one fan working against the other which may be causing slightly higher temps. The other suggestion may be to re-seat the pump unless you are confident its on there good.

Hi, have tried the cooler with only one fan and get the same results. Have tried re-seating the pump twice now, I think I have it on well but there is little to let you know if it's on well. Have you any tips for getting it on perfectly?

Cheers
