H60 temps a lil high for my setup?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ok i FINALLY got my rig up and running i ran a 1hr blend with prime 95 and here are my results:



i dont OC ALL the time but from what i do know these temps seem to high for stock settings. as im using a Corsair H60 in push / pull with 5 extra case fans id expect these temps with a 24/7 OC, but not with stock. im sitting at about 30 - 34c as im writing this. My TIM is shin etsu g751

heres how it is setup:
TIM: shin-etsu g751



my case is an antec 900, fans are:
Top exhaust: 200mm antec stock. switch on low.
Front IN: 2x 120mm antec stock. switch on low.
VGA side: CoolJag Everflow EF4-120 120mm Programmable LED Case Fan 49CFM 22dBA (not expecting too much here being its really only eye candy )
Middle push: EVERCOOL 120mm Case Fan
Rear exhaust + CPU Cooler: Corsair H60 with 2x EVERCOOL 120mm in push / pull to exhaust

Concerns: i thought that clearance may of been an issue, but i can feel intake and exhaust everywhere it should be. Some bad points are that i had accidentally thrown away some old molex Y splitters so although the vga side fan, the middle push fan, and the fans on the h60 are all plugged in to my controller and receiving power, the only fan i can control is the h60 exhaust fan. im going to pick up my new splitter from SVC when they open on monday. i can also set the antec case fans to a higher setting. Also i did notice, that with the side vga fan installed, the pump hoses get a slight push upon closing the case. dunno if its enough to cause separation though. or maybe not enough TIM applied? i got it in a 0.2cc or 2cc syringe from frys, and only used JUST enough for a complete coat. have a lil left, but had a nasty incident with over-app of some AS5, so now im stingy.

Those temps seem entirely appropriate to me.... I'm running a 2600k, but up at 4.3ghz, and under prime95 it gets up to 70c or so, and when I ran at stock settings, it ran up to 62c. I use two PWM controlled fans in a push/pull on my H50, and from what I understand, there is very little performance difference between the H50/60/70, just a difference in which fans work best for each setup.

Another consideration is that Corsair recommends installing the fans sucking air from the outside of the case inwards to get the lowest temps. It's a point of contention among the watercooling crowd because it's dumping the heat back into your case, so if your case isn't well ventilated, you could be stressing your system needlessly, with the benefit being a small drop in temps (3-5c probably).

kk. once all fans are under my control (mwa ha ha) im going to try an oc. i think i also need to check the connection for the CPU thermal monitor on my controller. core temp was ready 50c and my controller nvr went above 30c. Also maybe im confusing my temps with real water loops.

When you put the block onto the CPU, did you lift it up slightly or completely remove it? This can cause air pockets. Also check the pump is running at it's full speed of 1400rpm.

neg, i had to remove it once for a mobo RMA, but i reapplied the tim. the p8p67 pro only has a 4pin cpu connector, but i connected the pump anyway. bios shows it running @ over 4k. should i change the pump to the 3pin pwr header and turn off the cpu fan monitor?
