im totally new to watercooling.... im old and think water and electric nnaaaaaaatttttt!!!

but that sounds interesting however a 120mm on top of a 240? overkill? hmm i like.

i may just put a list together for a custom loop and buy bits at a time, least i can keep the parts and transfer it between builds.

but i dont know where to start lol :fear:
120 for the CPU and the 240 for GPU's, as they output more heat, therefore need more dissipation.

You'd get more performance in most games by overclocking a GPU than a CPU unless you play Total War, SC2, Civ 5 (i.e. RTS Games), that's why I like to ensure my GPU's are cooled to their hearts content, CPU doesnt matter so much.

so the swiftek can do this?! or you meaning for a custom loop?

if i went custom id just cool my cpu with a 240 because im xfiring one day soon. then add another 240 for the cards. and yea im planning on benching/overclocking/gaming and showing off.

damn im already thinking about a custom loop and havent even decided on water yet lol

but id fill the fuckas up with ice water for that lol

The swiftech is basically a custom loop disguised as an AIO unit- check out the video clips with Gabe discussing it on the Swiftech website iirc they are running this unit in one the videos with a pair of video cards added to the loop ;)

hmmm... looks good in that theres room for upgrade/extension but if i were to choose that route i may as well go custom.

Start by planning out what you want to achieve now ,gpu blocks are expensive but well worth the money if you keep gfx cards a while ie two years or more and water does wonders for gpu ocin and stability but they do require a decent rad/rad area , cpus do clock better but it isn't really worth the effort for ingame performance , benches yeah just no effect for games but then it is quiter.

I need advice on my CPU cooler

Hey everyone I'm 16 and from ni and I am at last building my first computer my mother board is a gigabyte ga 970a ud3 atx am3 and my graphics card is a gigabyte radon hd 7850 2gb.
The processor that I am installing is an amd fx 8320 and I think I might have a problem with the CPU coller I have already bought it's a coller master 212 evo with 2 fans the original 1 and a xmateck xlf series fan and i am worried it won't be powerful enough to cool my CPU can anyone put me to rest or give me a solution or if I have nothing to be worried about :banghead::toast: cheers lads

a few guys use the hyper evo on fx 8 cores, granted its not The best but it will work fine, and its much better than stock cooler, especially with two fans.

just make sure the fans are the correct way round. and congrats on building ya first pc.

loads of us here to help.

Davidjackhill123,

I have the FX 6300 with the Cooler Master 212 with the push/pull set up.

My CPU is OC'd by 700Mhz and runs nice and cool.

Just start off slow with your clock increases and watch your temps.

OCCT is a good tool for benching as it gives your voltages, temps etc. along with an error report (if there is one)

you can use a 3pin, i have two 3pin fans on both my 4pins!

4 pins means pulse width modulation, which means the fans can change speeds dynamically without voltage change. but a 3pin will work fine on your board, and exactly the same

I am running the 4 pin fan that came with my cooler which idles at 530ish RPM and spins up to 1900 RPM when needed. Then my pull fan is a 3 pin and runs at approx. 1200 RPM at all times.

Right now the ambient temp in my home is 75F and my CPU is sitting at 37C or 98F

That is with my FX 6300 OC'd to 4200mhz when it would normally be 3500mhz stock.

I hope this is useful info for you :)

does a 3pin connected to 4pin header not change fanspeed on your board?

i read up about this and if i remember, the board should recognise analog (3pin) and 4pin (pwm/ basically digital) and can change volts or 'pulse' accordingly!

This is on air CM Hyper 212+ Temps at idle average 28-35c depending on ambient temp.

Running OCCT for 30 min. averages temps around 50-55c max.

Volts will actually frop down to the 1.26 range under a load.

What is default vcore of your fx6300?
Did you increase any voltage to reach that OC?
If yes, which voltage: Cpu, Cpu-NB, NB, HT, SB?

I have the same motherboard (970 extreme 4) and my fx6300 should arrive soon so any tip or advice will be helpful. ;)

My 8350 on a H100 was 4.85Ghz on 1.488v stable 24/7 (sabertooth and V Formula Mobos).
Generic MX5 Paste used.
That is a nice OC, though personally I would drop down to at least 1.4v if you can and run your setup at perhaps 4.70GHz like I am. that Voltage is too high IMO for the FX chips.
Check out my system specs,
And buy the way guys do I need a 4 pined fan for second fan on the cooler or will any fan work
Usually regular case fans (Any Fan) are not recommended for direct CPU cooling, whether it be for a CPU heat sink and/or a water cooling rad, though depending on the quality of course.

Im running the same speed as you at the moment with most eco features on bar Apm it idles at 1500 or obv can be held at max which is nice I did notice a few things causing high temps like the internal nb and imc area but my actual individual core temps increase rapidly to 60º before leveling off above 1.5Core v.

Im going to reclock it soon .

Wow, you have a OC of 4.90GHz, very nice indeed :toast:, though I cannot live with a 60C temp. When you re-clock try to aim for a possible 1.4v, this seems to be the sweet spot voltage to keep temps down, at least below 55C via water cooling that is.
I got my setup to 4.70GHz w/8-Cores and a Bus of 277 with a 1.4v for the CPU. "Very" minor bumps in voltage for the HTT and the NB volts. I don't think the speed boost of an extra 200MHz is worth pushing the CPU vCore higher than 1.4v IMO.

I went more multi 220vref as beyond that I got instability odd but like you it seamed too hot i mentioned nb and imc because I noticed very high temps of those using high nb nem , well everything ocd 2133mem 2575 nb and ht 4.9 cpu ,often shows higher ((5+ ))but regular llc as other settings caused mega heat in cpu.

Interesting. My board at the bios boot screen always shows different speeds, like for instance 4.77GHz, 4.89GHz, 4.40GHz, 4.56GHz and so on, but in Windows and in the BIOS it shows the correct speed of 4.70GHz to 4.71GHz. Humm?

I've never had any issues with ASUS motherboards and I have been running their products for a long, long time.
Are they going through a bad spell now or recently?
had issues all over with the Crosshair V first DOA (cpu_led), 2nd was still not FX ready as mentioned on pkg, needed to be flashed with older CPU and killed itself suddenly (cpu_led) after few month
rest hardware is 100% ok

and yeeeah Asus ROG forum is full with that issue
