So did it get there at all?
Not yet, so I really doubt that it will shadedshu
sucks man , hopefully it comes early tomorrow
So it came!
More and better pics to come in the review!
Honestly, I must say I'm a bit disappointed, with 2 fans (no shroud) my 3.4ghz setting undervolted to 1.28v is running right at 45c...still about 10c better than the Xigmatek, but I was really hoping for 40c load @ 3.4ghz
You have to keep in mind it's a very low end water cooling system, I still think it performs kick ass for what it is! glad you got it and glad your temps are running much lower dude
Glad to hear that you got it. 45*C under load isn't bad at all.
Im hitting about 48ºc right now, 3.4 GHz @ 1.262v. running a Xiggy S1283 since I got rid of my H50 a while back.
I hit 41-42*C under load with my Zalman at 100% normally. But I don't have my processor OC'd yet....
Yeah, 45c isn't bad at all...but I was just hoping for more I guess. I read a post in the H50 thread where someone was getting 40c load on his stock-clocked X4 965, so that's what I was hoping to get. How would I go about using the H50 screws with a shroud, when I try to do the method that I read here:
I'm unable to get the screws to go through just one side of the fan (won't make the needed angle). I'm assuming I'm just doing something wrong, I'll post pics of the issue tomorrow, maybe I'll just get longer screws
So basically my H50 is performing about the same as your HDT-S1283? I'm at the same clocks and a slightly higher voltage (1.28). That's a bit of a disappointment
Remember my rig is on a tech station, I was getting 36-38ºc with the single Corsair fan with this setup, can't compare dude.
Why would your setup be so much cooler? I run my rig with the side off (back fan as intake) so it should be within a couple C of a tech station/open bench, no?
I don't know dude, the tech bench helps a lot even if your side panel is open. Nothing like a tech bench
However, make sure your pump is plugged to the PSU, try new TIM, the TIM it brings is great, but it's too much of it. Tighten or loosen your block a bit, see if any small adjustment helps a bit. I once had it too tight, loosening it up a bit helped for a degree or two.
I don't have any spare TIM, that'll have to wait until I can order some, I'll try loosening/tightening the block a bit tomorrow (a bit tired now and don't feel like messing with comp). It's odd that a tech station would do that, it makes me want to try my rig on my spare mobo tray.
BTW, what were your ambients, I just realized that my ambients were 28c (83F), so probably higher than yours
take your time bro, enjoy the rig for now dude
Yeah, my ambients were lower, I would say about 72-75ºf
Well, that alone is almost half of the difference, that makes me feel a lot better!
yeah man of course, try to get your ambient around that and see if the temps drop to what you expected, 82-83ºf is freakin' hot bro
Yeah, that's pretty hot.
I got my ambient temps down quite a bit today, right now my CPU is 36*C under full load.
I'll see (maybe I'll get some temp reading in the middle of the night when it's pleasantly cool), the parents don't much like running the AC due to the power usage, so until it gets up above 90 we just have the windows open :shadedshu , so high temps are a fact of life between April and October
Ambient temps is the biggest difference you'll see in temps. That and fans, but a good drop in ambient temps does a heck of a difference. Like night and day.
That sucks. Sorry to hear it dude.
Sometimes night is a big help for me. Before I had AC I'd open the windows at night and let in all the cool night air.
The cool air overnight is nice, I have a big fan in the window that runs at max speed all night bringing in cool air...so when I wake up temps are usually a couple C lower than when I go to bed
yeah bro, helps a lot. Try to set your room cooler and you'll see
Well do, hopefully I'll see some pretty "cool" results tomorrow. Also, any idea how to make AMD Overdrive automatically apply settings at startup? I'm using it to undervolt in smaller increments than the BIOS will allow (it's stable at one notch below stock in the BIOS, but not two, and I use AMD Overdrive to put it between those)
If it's a difference that small, it's not worth it, the power consumption/heat output won't change that much.
