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

Also it could be a bad seat.

Yeah, sorry typo!

If you just set this up you might want to make sure all the air is out of your loop first. Shake your rad, or lightly slap it to knock off air bubbles.

Shake your pump to make sure it doesn't have a big bubble in it preventing you from getting full flow.

Tilt your rig around and see if you can work any air out of your block.


Hmm, yes I do hear bubbles still, its been on for hours.

The TIM looks pretty even and its on the entire cpu.

much better than the intel crap.

Aaron, he said it in OP, Vendetta 2.

Hmm, I had the same temps with my vendetta 2 though, so this is proving to me that watercooling is not beneficial in my case, and its more maintenance.

Anyone wanna buy some WC Gear!!! Hehehe
I'll give it some more time, and hopefully when my new fans get here monday morning it will make a difference.
