Default temps seem too high at stock speeds with water cooling


pictures of my setup...

I used arctic silver n all the chip contacts..

my processor runs at 46C-47c according to bios (latest version)
idle.. Not ssure about load as haven't installed windows back on it yet.

the Water Block on the processor feels cool if not room temp howeverand the water tubing going to it feels less than room temp.. the one from the proc a little above room temp

I changed my motherboard and added a VGA card to the setup as i foundthat this mobo doesn't have stuttering issues with the 6xxx series

however the order is

Evercool Radiator/resivior, geforce6800GT,Thermaltake 12cm radiator, amd 64 3200+

Processor temp diddn't seem to change even when i lowered the fan speeds on the radiators..

possible screwy diode?

my motherboard is chaintech vnf3-250

btw i'm pretty sure i mounted the sink right.. Will switch to a BIG water cpu block

as there is probably a hairline of the cpu that's not completely covered very small gap however.. Only other possible way to mount the sink would Leave a HUGE gap uncovered

Send a message via AIM to PZEROFGH

if you want to lower temps i suggest you getting a radiator with 2 120mm fan, sense you have 2 blocks to water and better pump

The bigwater simply put, sucks....I'm not saying this out of spite, I'm saying this out of experience as it was my first water cooling setup too unfortunately.

That thing can barely cool a CPU muchless trying to cool a CPU 'AND' a GPU in which GPU's get hotter than CPUs do....couple that with tiny *** tubing, weak *** pump and of course you're going to get worse temperatures.

Getting a bigger radiator wont do anything considering the pump would be too weak to adequately push it through
