Water Cooling didnt change my temps at all over air :(

Hey guys, I finished setting up my WC loop today. I actually changed it, before the rad was mounted inside, then I put it outside the case, and the temps still are the exact same as when I was air cooling with the vendetta 2.

CURRENT LOOP


Earlier Loop (about 5 hours ago loop)



What would be causing me to have to temp change?

I have 3 fans on the rad. I ordered 4 Scythe Slip Stream Kaze Jyuni 120MM Fan 1200RPM 68.5CFM 24DBA

The loop consists of DD CPX-PRO --> MCR220 --> Apogee GTZ --> Temporary custom res --> back to pump

it really doesn't matter with the heat output in his system. i'll guarantee that there is less than a 1°C drop in temps from the inlet to the outlet side of this radiator. in these closed loop systems, the water in the rad will be at basically the same temp as the water in the pump or the water in the CPU block. unless you have something super hot, like a 600w pelt, the water temp won't change much from one part of the loop to the other.

one reason to have the pump out connected to the rad in is head and turbulence. the more turbulent the water inside the rad, the more all the molecules of the water get in contact with the surface of the rad and more heat is lost over the rad. of course the same applies for having the pump out connected to the CPU block in... more heat is picked up from the block.

and yes, OP, we need load temps.

i'm really have a hard time believing that you were getting the same temps on air. i've had 3 cpu's under water, 2 of them quads, and it's always been at least a 10°C decrease in load temps when on water.

well that SS only has prime up for a few seconds, maybe a minute, it's not done with the first iteration yet... that's not a true load temp, but it's close.

what are your ambient temps?
