Even though that's not typical CPU usage, those temps were pretty warm. How the temps are after the water cooling upgrade? Unfortunately, on-board temp sensors aren't very reliable.

the temps dropped about 20 degrees Celsius.
CPU is 45 GPU is 45 and the system temp is 55 these are all the average temps.

plus the cpu usage went down too now that its cooler and the performance went up as well

it looks to work pretty good...for now we will see what happens in the future =P

Better late then never...

The temperatures in that pic were indeed on the high side.
60 degrees C is about the highest "optimum" temperature for any CPU.

I also noticed your system fan isn't turning as far as the sensor goes, which may be the cause all other temperatures went up.


Keep us posted on how it evolves man, good luck Posted Image



PS: I really like that water-cooled setup, but are you aware of the extra maintenance of a water-cooled system?
It looks real tidy! Posted Image

extra maintenance ?? its a closed water system, no maintenance at all, maybe check for leaks every once and a while....but that's it...

temps dropped like crazy i like it now!!!

and i like that you think it looks tidy, wanted it to look good for the boss and it has a plexiglass side, so you got to do a little more :)

Temps look far more normal now, except the system temperature maybe. But this isn't too worrying at all.
I also notice system-fan speeds now, what will help as well :)

And about maintenance, most water-cooled systems I've ever seen need a bit of maintenance, like bleeding/replacing cooling liquid once in a while, but I'm sure the "user-manual" will provide you with all information here. And if it states "no maintenance whatsoever required" please let me know I was wrong, I'd be very interested to know!

If you do need maintenance, there will be no rush as this is certainly not more then monthly or even once a year, depending on setup. So you can enjoy those 45 minutes without stress if you want Posted Image

If you do need to replace the coolant, be sure to get the right type.
Never replace coolant with tap-water, as this conducts electricity and could short your system in case of even a small leak.
Also there are additives that will influence (electrical & temperature-) conductivity, "thickness of the liquid" (sorry for being Dutch) and boiling-temperature.

In short, read the manual carefully Posted Image

EDIT: drive safely Posted Image

looked the manual up online since the don't really supply this thing with a manual but only with a how to install piece of paper...

the say there isn't any maintenance on the unit.

Will I need to fill the unit with water? Do I have to perform any maintenance?

Our Hydro Series CPU coolers are designed to be a closed-loop solution with no maintenance required at all. The units come pre-filled and feature proprietary hoses that virtually eliminate evaporation of water. The expected lifespan of the average unit is significantly longer than the warranty period.
