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.

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.

Its all about head pressure and flow rate--

Have you ever ran it any other way?

Those are some pretty damn fine temps regardless of whether you are using air or water. If you were getting those temps with air I don't know why you would even switch to water, especially with that OC. At this point in air cooling, watercooling is almost more of a hobby than a beneficial means of cooling your computer.

BTW cpu-z says you have a Q8300 but coretemp says you have a Q9300...

either way that is a good OC with those temps.

Dammit everybody else but me got great temps, these are my cooling parts below, please advice me, on load at 3,6 with prime I get around 60 degrees, on stock speed my idle was 29 after the gpu became around 32 -34 but people are getting 45-50 on load at these speeds.

Since you only listed one pump I would assume everything is on one loop? If so I would suggest you make a loop for CPU and a loop for GPU for better temps.

Yeah, the full cover GPU waterblocks like what you have on your 4850 are very restrictive. Not only is your GPU adding heat to the loop(which your radiators should be able to handle, and temps should only increase a couple degrees) but the flow rate is probably far from optimal, which reduces the performance of your cpu block as well as the radiators.

Also, I don't think your choice of fans is helping. I've heard that the Noctua fans don't perform well on radiators, and you're also using no-name fans as well. It may help to get some high static pressure fans that perform well on a radiator and use those instead.

Thats not a lot of rad for the load you have on it. You may want to try some higher cfm fans, or do a push-pull if you have the room for it.

I don't know what cfm fans those are or there thickness.

I wouldn't use anything smaller then this myself on a rad..86cfm Pana .These are what I use...115cfm Pana

Shrouds are good for a couple of extra C..How To: Make any Sized shroud in 2 minutes .How To: Build A Performance Shroud

If you want to run lower cfm fans you need to have a lot of rad surface area to still get good temp's.

For really good OC'ing performance I use a lot of surface area with decent cfm fans.

It wouldn't hurt to try some block remounts also and make sure all the air is out of your loop.

You might want to start a thread on it and we would be better able to help you there.

Ira, just wanna make sure you saw there's 2 rads

RADIATOR-------------Danger Den Black Ice GT Stealth 240 X-Flow Radiator - Red ***4 of NOCTUA NF-P12 ***
RADIATOR-------------MAGICOOL PRO II 240mm RADIATOR *** 2 case exhaust fans - dodgy brand but they

I don't know much about the magicool rad, but as far as i can remember the DD gt stealth is a single pass & with the magicool i think you might have too much heat to dissipate (don't take my word for it - Ira-k & others know alot more).

First check that all the bubbles are out. I think the next step would be top try diffenret/better fans with cheap shrouds. If that don't solve your problem get 2 mcr320's if 1 is'nt enough.
