help with high temps!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ok first here's a pic of my system:



as you can see I'm running a 480 gtx rad on top with 3000rpm scythe's (in just pull cause i got their wide as hell fan)

here's the order:

rad-cpu-nb-res-pump-vid-back to rad

problem is my cpu temps are high as hell, I was running at 4.2 ht on at 1.34 and all 4 cores would idle at about 50c and load at about 90c

I think that's kinda high for just 1.34 volts? I have a gtz cpu block and an ek block on the nb along with a full cover ek block on my 480gtx.

Anyone got any suggestions?


thanks guys

oh one more thing, that pic is wrong i noticed i had the inlet and outlet of my rad reversed so the pic show's it backwards. I fixed this yesterday and it actually dropped the temps a couple of degrees but nothing major.

Rads don't have flow directions, the only thing that would cause those issues that I know of would be:

Wrong flow in the CPU block (if it matters for that block, not sure exactly what it is)

Poor seating of the CPU block (too much TIM maybe?)

Or your pump isn't doing its job properly.



How are your graphics card temps? I have mine at about 35-40oC at all times without an OC atm.

If that's ok, that will help rule out the pump, then you'll need to look at the CPU block


Edit:

Nice looking system by the way

check for air in lines
check water temp going into cpu block
check water temp coming out of cpu block
check water flow
check and reinstall cpu block

yeah the 480gtx rad has flow directions... it's one of the few that do.
