Yesterday was dusting day, pulled the fan box off my rad for cleaning and decided to see what the system could do




More about : watercooled temps

I'd like to see if the temps ever got any higher than that as there must be a crap load of water to warm up in that rad and res! Impressive all the same.

Probably close to .75 liters...maybe more in that rad alone.

Regardless of water volume in a loop, the ability for the radiators to exchange heat effectively vs. the amount of heat being produced is the real key in any watercooling loop.

Is that a home made test bench, delluser? :)

I stopped Prime after that, didn't replace the fans though.
Websurfing at 36-40c
2 hours of BFBC2 brought temps to a max of 61c.

Didn't bother to check how much fluid, you're probably very close.

61C at load? That seems a little high for the rad you are running...was this without the fans on it?

Do you run a CPU only loop...or GPU as well?

No fans
I pulled my watercooled 260 and replaced it with an air cooled 460
