    Default WTF?? Why it got hotter??

    Hi Guys!

    Wierd thing happend to me

    I'm in process of RMA my grfx card so obviously i had to take it off my system.

    Now i run GTZ, 18W swiftech pump and 320 rad and..... my temps are higher on CPU :confused::confused:

    Previously i had GRFX block and 240 TT rad in equasion as well and my 3.6 GHz idle temps were around 39, 40.

    Now my idle temps are 46 - 50.... on stock clock

    So i thought maybe an air is trapped in the rad so i shook the living day out of it. There was some air in it but it didnt make any difference on the temps.... I can feel the rad is warm at the bottom but top of it is ice cold....

    BTW my rad is setup in front of my PC with barbs are at the bottom

    therefore like topic says WTF????

    I'm assuming you didn't remove the GTZ?

    hmmm....maybe there's still water pockets in the loop...let the pump run for couple hours with the res cap open.

    and hopefully no blockage in the loop.

    Nope there was no need to remove it

    I try and give it a good shake again and we'll see how it goes

    I just finished removing the air in my double tri-rad system this weekend

    I found it helped when i...

    Started & stopped the pumps

    slowly tilted the rads from end to end & from side to side

    "burped" the system by squeezing all the hoses in a whole bunch of different places

    & repeatedly tapped the hoses sharply & firmly with a finger

    Hey Geralt,

    Sorry to hear about the increase in temps but from my experience for most WaterBlocks you know those deposits built up over time and they do affect temps a fair bit...whilst the loop is empty i suggest you unscrew the GTZ and you will see those deposit build up on the Pin Matrix on the GTZ

    Good time to clean it? I believe you did not cleaned the waterblock ever since the installation?

    This is from my experience that temps increase usually from the built up from all these stuff.

    I'm sure that you have already thought of this, but I haven't seen anyone else suggest it yet:

    Did you try re-seating the block, and re-applying the TIM. Sometimes the simplest of solutions are the most often overlooked.

    he's never remove the cpu block, just unhook the gpu block and now he got high temp for the cpu.

    Good pointBully but... i cleaned it around a month ago ( including dismalteling GTZ and cleaining the pins)

    Like Deton said , i didnt take off the block so i dont see any reason to re-mount it.


    So i tried once again to shake it/ tilt it/ squeez it ect and all a can say definatelly theres no air in that rad....but temps are the same....

    So what i tried is i hooked up 2nd rad (TT one that i used when grfx block was in as well) and now my temps are back to 39 idle on 3.6 but this time without a graphic block.. WIERD :confused: Seems like grfx block wasnt dumping any sort of heat that would impact CPU temps..... what do you think of it??

    Oh another thing when i ran linpack the bottom part of the rad ( whrere barbs are) was pretty worm but the top chamber was cold all the time. Do you recko that turining the rad around may improve cooling capabilities?? Ie. If the barbs would be on top then liquid would be forced by the pump and the gravity to go to the very bottom of the rad while now it doesnt seem to be doing that

    Perhaps - taking off the TT Rad & the GFX waterblock increased the flow of coolant too much & didn't give the time required to dump out the heat transfer.

    Yeah I was surprised when building my Hi-Perf V8 in 1998 - there was a turbo water pump replacement - my buddy an ex pro car racer (has a PHD in physics also) advised me of that - as I had already put in a Griffen racing rad.

    Science doesn't lie...
