Hi friends, i am using a tc4 with springs, dtek heatercore + shourd + 515 gph pump. My temps idle is 42 (thermistor) with cold water 23 C and cold air temp 20 C.I think 2 possibilities:
1 wb, but i settle again and with pressure in springs.
2 oumo maybe i am getting low flowrates.
when i unplug the fan the temp and the water temp rise.
what do you think ?
have you tried remounting a few times?, also how far are the springs compressed? they should be 99% compressed
ooh, i do beleve that board doesnt read ondie diode.... not 100% sure. take a fan, higher powered, point it at the cpu, see what your temps do, heck take the fan off the heatercore and point it at the cpu:p i bet itll go down if its reading from socket
lol man you are RIGHT. The water became very hot, with the same temp 42 C. Then i turned the fan on and put a 110 v 120 fan blowing air to the block. the water temp drops and the cpu went to 35 C in 30 seconds....:D
But i thank that the thermistor shows 10 C above(up) the diode?
Why mine is higher than really is ??
id try reseating several times and if that didnt work then maybe check to see if the block is being flooded properly...
yeah, insocket temp diodes are funny that way. They assume you wil have a certain cfm around the socket area as part of the calculations and such. Also make sure the area around the socket isnt heating up from components on the mobo overheating from lack of airflow~dead spots maybe etc.
