    Too hot on water. Why?

    That picture with the temps at stock are right after doing just that. I wish I had another cooler, could see right away if it's the water system, cpu, or even both. Any smart way to remove airlock, if it's that? I've done some turning and shaking but don't think it did anything.

    Too hot on water. Why?

    Yeah, was wondering if that is normal? Like start the pc, let's say 4.5ghz at 1.3V, in the 40s degrees. As soon as I click start on prime95, it jumps to 80s in half a second, then it starts increasing slowly, degree by degree until stabilized. Doesn't this jumping happen to everyone?

    Too hot on water. Why?

    Yeah, I thought it would be enough from the reviews, 60-70 with 3930k @4600+ I'm starting to think 3930k is much cooler then the 4930k. Also, the amount of radiators shouldnt make a difference in the first couple minutes, right? I mean, if I start my pc, and run prime95 right away, it jumps...

    Too hot on water. Why?

    jeeezus, that's a lot of stuff. You think I could get 2-3 degrees off if I added another 240 rad? Isn't the waterblock plus the speed of the water running the biggest factor, at least in the first minutes of running it stressed?

    Too hot on water. Why?

    How many radiators you running? And what max temps you getting? EDIT: just tested mine at stock with low pump and fans speed, temps went up to 84.

    Thx Dave! You're the best. I'm definitely doing that ;)

    Too hot on water. Why?

    Thx, that pretty much answers all my questions. About the intel tuning plan. I read on their conditions that it has to be a boxed cpu and not a tray cpu. How do I see that? I mean, the cpu came in a box, but without cooler. EDIT: something like this one: EDIT2: Oh, one more thing :) You think...

    Too hot on water. Why?

    Thx, and I just don't want to misunderstand, just to confirm I understood. The first part you said, they all achieve different results, I understand that and agree. But what I was asking, and just to make sure I understand, if I put all those ten chips running at EXACTLY the same conditions on...

    Too hot on water. Why?

    Couldn't find that information on spec sheets, but i take your word on that. I did the offset thing, it seems the same, 1.232. Actually I think it's 1.2 but it's reading more, as every value i set, it shows a tiny bit more. But regardless of that, let's say I overclock 10 different 4930k's all...

    Too hot on water. Why?

    Are you 100% on that? I was under the impression that all 4930k out of the box on stock settings, all have the same voltages, if nothing changed. I mean, this may be a dumb question, but how does the computer know which voltage to give at stock to make it stable? And take a look here...

    Too hot on water. Why?

    But when you say gold chips at 1.05v, do you mean when you leave it on auto, or when you lower the voltage until you find a minimum stable value?

    Too hot on water. Why?

    I was running at 4.6 stable at 1.29v, stable. I don't know if that is good or not, but my problem is mostly the temps, not the voltages, i think. In that case, the problem was it getting in the 90s. When I ran stock at 1.2v, it was because it was on auto, i didn't try to run it at lower...
  13. R

    Too hot on water. Why?

    But that can means that if I had a stock cooler that it would run in the 90s. And isn't the stock voltage the same for everyone?

    Too hot on water. Why?

    I've now removed the block again, used the recommended thermal paste that came with swiftech, shaken the block and rad in case of air bubbles, repositioned the block with the tubing upwards, repositioned the radiator with the reservoir opening upwards, same problem overall, same temperatures...

    Too hot on water. Why?

    thx for the replies. I put more paste because the first time it was too little. I might have put a bit too much, but i suppose it would spread to the sides. Anyhow, i got the same temps with too much or too few, same behavior. But i suppose that even with a bit too much or too few paste there...

    Too hot on water. Why?

    I started pretty much at 1.4v 4.5ghz as base, with the objective of going up to see where it would take me. I can have it stable at lower voltages. The H220 should be pretty good, i think. I read a ton of reviews before i picked it. Like this one...

    Too hot on water. Why?

    thx guys, that helps. i guess it's not so unusual then. i tried at lower voltages and it got me think that 1.4 warms way too much. I also thought about bubbles in the loop, it's new, not sure how to get them out though. Lastly, maybe I have a bad cpu, I mean, bad in a way that if I removed the...

    Too hot on water. Why?

    here's a test with the repasting: There's no way it's the cooling system, unless something's wrong with the pump. I saw like a million (maybe 5) reviews where it had delta 40-50 on overclocked 3930k, like this one http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coolers/display/swiftech-h220_5.html#sect0 The...

    Too hot on water. Why?

    So, I remounted. Here's how the block and cpu were after separating them: I'm guessing it was to few paste? Or like this paste sucks to spread? Here's how i spreaded the paste now, do you think it is good? (Of course I put way more now)

    Too hot on water. Why?

    but 90 degrees? Also, is it supposed to take 1-2 seconds, after i start the burnin test, to go from 35 to 65 degrees and vice versa when i stop the test?

    Too hot on water. Why?

    thx, i guess it is a mounting problem then. But answering the mounting question, imagine a dice, with the number 5. I did like that: a 5mm circle in the middle and 4x 2mm between the middle one and the corners. I read somewhere, but wasn't sure this was the correct method, i was a bit afraid...

    Too hot on water. Why?

    Not sure what you mean by mounting method. I put the cpu, IC Diamond thermal paste, sit the block and screw in the screws. Here´s a couple pics: I think the fans run at max when burntesting. 22deg ambient btw :)

    Too hot on water. Why?

    Hi Running a 4930k on a asus rampage iv gene. At 100mhz*45 with 1.4V Then in idle after a couple minutes Im running a swiftech h220. cpu fan is the pump, alt cpu fan is the radiator fans. Weird also that as soon as i start the burn in test, the temps jump like 20 degrees immediately...
