Hello I just put my new watercooling system together, and would like to know if my temperatures are where they should be.
I'm running Prime95 stress test with a i7-930 CPU at 2850mhz.

I got 28c ambient in my room.

What LCS do u have? I have very similar temps with my Hyper 212+ @3.8GHz

Not sure what you mean with LCS, but will this answer it?

LCS = Liquid Cooling System.

I can't understand the pic very well, but the liquid comes 1st to the CPU right?

No, its going the other way, Res -> Pump -> Rad -> CPU. Shouldn't affect the cooling really.

Heard something about getting a chipset/bios driver could lower the temps by 10c or so?

That's about the stupidest comparison I've ever seen.

An AMD Quad vs an i7 930........doesn't quite cut it thermally.

Saint you SHOULD know better.

Off course that affects, the CPU goes first the GPU in second and the NB in the last place.

@RJR: IMO isn't a stupidest comparison if u get the same temps with a two years old CPU like my 955 with 600MHz OC against a CPU with LCS that has better power managed at stock speed.

If u say so, in my little experience the CPU always goes in 1st place like I say up.

thats how i have mine CPU through the chipset block to ram.

for the ambient temp and the clock speed its not bad nor great either for a LCS.

what water cooling set up are u using? id switch it around so the CPU is first, then compare temps.

Currently i'm running a Hyper 212+ but always work with custom LCS that has motorcycle radiator :)  my last one was a Q6600 @14C idle

OC'ed my CPU to 4.4ghz, running about 79c at 100% load for 4 hours

I'm still thinking that is a little high.

Well, 1.45v got its price, and its still 100% load, won't really happen, when doing the things I do, like gaming.
