CPU temps / Liquid cooler questions Tags: Cooling CPUs Liquid Last response: May 17, 2013 5:48 AM in CPUs Share DaleSnail May 16, 2013 10:56:42 PM Just picked up a Zalman LQ-315, installed it and put a TB silence on it. My current idle temps sit at about 33-38c, and under load (using 3Dmark) I hit about 50 - 51c My room stays atound 75 - 80f (not my choice -_-) Do these seem like ok numbers considering my room temp and the fact I'm not OCing at all? The stock thermal paste was a bit smudged and had a line through the side a bit but looked like it covered the CPU well enough. Would buying some better paste help out? Also, I have 2 Scythe GTs that im tempted to put on this thing, but the enermax looks so sexy, would using a GT for pull and the enermax for push be ok? Also my specs are: CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 Case: Fractal Define R4 MoBo: AsRock 990fx extreme3 GPU: 2x 650TI Boost edition SLIed HDD: 500gb WD Green Drive (upgrading later) PSU: 600 watt Cougar 80+ Silver PSU Cooler: Zalman LQ-315 water cooler RAM: 8g Kingston HyperX 1600ghz More about : cpu temps liquid cooler questions dirtyferret a b à CPUs May 17, 2013 5:48:09 AM 50-51c is rather cool for a CPU at load, you have nothing to worry about m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
