    My new temps, Picture and a question.



    Heres a pic of my second attempt at watercooling.
    My temps are: Ambient room temp average - 32c
    MBM5 sensor reading full load - 45c
    MBM5 sensor reading idle - 40c
    Mines a AXDA1700DLT3C 9504547280072
    JIUHB 0319VPMW running at 2133Mhz (stable) with a vcore of 1.65v (175x12)

    the fan you see on the shroud is a Vantec stealth 120mm.

    Could I be getting better temps with these specs?

    40 - 45 C ! on H20 ???????? @ 1.65v !

    Better check that the block is seated properly

    AS3?

    Seems high for H20.

    Even my cr*py open chas 370 block gets 38C load.
    32C idle & 3/8" tubes.

    Your temps are FINE. Your ambient temps are very hot 32C, and no boards read temps 100% accurate anyway. Seems you have decent temps to me. If the machine is stable, that is all that matters...

    What mobo do you have?

    Asus mobos have always read temps high.

    System temp of 32C.
    CPU of 40 - 45 C.

    Yes. I'd have to agree with nik.
    Drop your room temp (4C) & you should see a CPU temp drop.

    Try aiming a fan at the cpu to see if that changes any temps.

    just a thought & my .02.

    You're using a Vantec Stealth? They run at low rpm's from what i know, like 2000.. You should try a faster fan, that would probably help cool the radiator better and give you lower temps.

    Many people get the mistaken idea that water cooling is a miracle cure for high temps.
    This is wrong

    As said above, the really critical info is the ambient temp and cpu temp:
    Ambient: 32c
    Cpu : 45c
    Difference: 13c

    Which is not bad. Not a record breaker either, but not bad at all.

    My main system does about the same and my portable.....well, ambients are too high to have it running right now
    That thing is so crammed in it would be close to 50c I think, lol.

    Edit: your system looks good BTW, man. Only thing I can think of that might help temps a bit is to see if you can shorten any of those hoses by re-routing them. May not make any difference as they are not real long anyway, but that all I can see
    Still overclocked and running linux on watercooled computers after all these years.
