So I finally finished my custom water cooling setup in my PC . I will eventually add a water block to the GPU but at this point the CPU was the first priority. Runs about 25 degree on idle and load is about 50 degrees at 5ghz.September 2, 2013 at 7:29 am #69347Venn StoneKeymaster
In my day we milled our own blocks (true story) and used in-line marine pumps attached to heater cores.. uphill, both ways *yells at cloud*September 2, 2013 at 7:55 am #69348
I remember trying one of the first Thermaltake Big Water cooling units. Big mistake that was.. awful instructions, awful components, destroyed my AMD 2800+.September 2, 2013 at 10:22 am #69351Sore_LoserMember
I will say what Venn never could… Nice machine, Bro.
Better than Venn’s.September 2, 2013 at 10:34 am #69352kloinkaParticipant
I had a Coolermaster rig set up in the old Q6600, found it too noisy and all that coolant constant gurgling made me run toilet too often for a leak.September 2, 2013 at 10:48 am #69353Sore_LoserMember
I thought the part of the point was LESS noize.September 2, 2013 at 6:36 pm #69356
When you install a liquid cooling unit you need to cycle the coolant through the loop for 24 hours without the other parts turned on to get rid of any air bubbles. It either sounded like there was air escaping into your loop or you didn’t have enough coolant in the system. And thanks Sore_Loser.September 2, 2013 at 10:34 pm #69358kloinkaParticipant
Yep, never did that…(cycle the coolant), you live you learn crap!September 3, 2013 at 12:07 am #69360
Don’t worry I did the same thing first time roundSeptember 4, 2013 at 9:51 am #69380
So after lots of voltage tweaking and not increasing the speed via the multiplier but with the classic front side bus way I got a “stable” 5ghz clock with Prime. Before that it was flakey at times. Socket Load Temp is 61c, and load core temp is 38c.
