this was my first time in water cooling and i bought it with all my pc components so at the time it was alot. once it is sorted im selling it and buying a new rig and i will get better cooling for that , what are the things i could try, thanks
Those are where you need to be, after you figure out you're cooling problem you can think about faster clocks
First step of troubleshooting: remove all unknown variables. Remove your OC's, benchmark your temps at stock speeds. 99% of the time, OC's are user-error and running less than optimal settings, including vCore, etc.
I wouldn't own anything watercooling with 'Zalman' written on it...just my opinion. That pump looks mediocre...kind of like it could be a lower-end Jingway?
ill have a look at it 2moz, i didnt flush my rad through and now my tubing has gone all milkey, im sure that makes it hotter if so i assume my fluid will be wrecked so ill have to just use distilled water im gunna do that 2moz and get back to you all, on my next system ill ask whats the best water cooling rig to buy as i dont wanna let my new 990x to get to hot
