I keep my water temp at ~25
wen i have my E2180
@ 3.33ghz, 1.4 v my temps are 60load, 31idle
@ 3.50ghz, 1.5 v my load temp is 71!
i have used both AS5 and ceramique and reseated twice each(the temps are -/+ 2-3C each time) and my cpu is lapped
How do you keep your water at 25C? In a WC loop it warms up at idle to an amount over room temp, that is the delta T. Then when you load the processor the water will warm up a bit more. A performance WC loop has a delta of about 5C. A average loop should never warm more than 10C over room temp.
You have a GPU in the loop too? A MCR220 really can't hold a GPU and CPU cool, especially an overclocked one like yours.
Sounds like you know how to put paste on you lapped the CPU before you went water and have seated enough HS on a CPU.
Also, some chips just get really hot at 1.5, you can't help that.
Is your loop 100% bled of all bubbles? Sure the rad is all water? How is the rad mounted and are you using case air or room air to cool the rad?
My guesses are you either didn't bleed the air bubbles out of the loop, or the sink isn't firmly attached. Conumdrum says the cooler your using isn't strong enough to handle both a CPU and GPU, that is very possible. I'm not familiar with the setup your using, so I can't say.
wut cpu do u have boulard83? also wut GTL Ref, PLL and VTT(FSB) voltage r u using.
4745454b: i flip my case around and no air comes out, when a little bit of air (~5 ml) builds up it just gets shot out.
the problem has do do with the block(apogee gt)/cpu i think (the contact i guess)
CPU : 1.4565v
1.2v HT : 1.30v
NB : 1.45v
SB : 1.50v
CPU VTT : 1.30v
Thats my spec, on asus P5N32e SLI PLUS mobo. Nforce 650 hybrid DUAL 16X
as i told. im about to do a lapping on my CPU, ill receive my new paste on thusday. Also, im not using the plastic sleeving for the Block mounting. try to pressure mount it. and no real CPU temp benefit. still 27-30 idle and 55-60 100% ( OCCT ). when playing GT4 that is really CPU intensive, my temp are 40-48c (G15+coretemp).
Ill leave news next week-end about my lapping+new paste.
I know you don't believe, but I'm sticking with my purge idea. I don't care how fast your pump is, if the bubble is in the system, its in the system. You said,
when a little bit of air (~5 ml) builds up it just gets shot out.
Shot out where? Its a closed system is it not? Air shouldn't "build up" for the same reason. The problem could be the block, there is a reason they came out with the GT block. Perhaps its not as good as others.
