Hey guys, so, I've got a question. My load temperatures when gaming are pretty toasty. And I think that my CPU actually runs warmer on water than it did on air. My CPU during games with my loop can reach up to like 65C when it's warm in my room, but usually is around 55-60C.
The GPU runs around 50C tops, in extreme cases 55-60C but never more. Yet my motherboard in games is only around 45-50C, and my drives are both usually under 40C by a few degrees. I've gone back and forth between having my fans as intake (which seems like the worse set up, as it blows the hot air directly onto the motherboard/CPU socket) and as they currently are, which is exhaust. My issue is, I don't really have any other space for additional cooling, given my computers small size. Last I checked the thermal paste was spread evenly and properly. And ideas what I can do? I've even considered removing my HDD, and trying to move the pump somewhere else, and placing the radiator directly under the GPU. Issue is with that, it'd be suffocated for air and I'd need to use 15mm thick fans. Also, I wouldn't have a way to directly feed my pump from the reservoir. I might be better off upgrading to a slightly larger case like the Phanteks Evolv ITX or Define Nano S, is most likely what I'd need to do.
