    the best way to find out exactly flow rate of your pump is get yourself a flow rate gauge meter, definately not the spining wheel meter like the one you see from Thermaltake. Hook it up to your loop and woala...you have the accurate reading.

    AFAIK all of the flow meters have big impact on your flow preformance so i dont know if its worth it to install one. Besides if my current pump has stats of 500lph (+- 50) and 1.8 m head room then i know the overall flow rate can be described with one word : CR@P . Thats why i want to change it ASAP

    there you go load temps after 1h Prime small FFT:



    EDIT: hopefully I'll get new pump next week so then we can compare preformance

    What I would like to know is how you have temps on the 60c range with that set up ? The $79 Domino A.L.C. I just tested with my 965 Extreme OCed to 4GHz gave me 48c on high, with the 940 at 3.2GHz 36c and that's with both systems under load for 4-6 hrs playing COD5 World at War.

    This is a cooler designed for gamers, so I decided that testing under load conditions should be done gaming. My review for nordic hardware should be published by the end of the week I hope. Dans Domino review should be published here about the same time, I am not sure what kind of results he had, I believe he has a Q 9550 somewhere around 4Ghz.

    I think you need to spend some time talking to Deton to find out why your temps are so high, and find a solution to lowering them. I have a friend running the H20 220 Apex on the 965 Extreme and his temps are around 47c, but he also is cooling two GTX280s. You have a nice build, but I think we need to help you find a way to drop your temps at least 15c, maybe one pump for each Radiator, or fans with a higher cfm.

    He got 1.5Vcore and 65nm proc, it's definately will run hotter than core i7. I think he will have better temp when he has the new pump installed. That 60c is core temp though.

    now for testing.....

    oh, and the coils were supposed to be red...... but under uv they are bright orange...


    EDIT:

    the results 1h Prime small fft:



    unfrtunatelly i saw it peaking sometimes to 65.... but its better anyways coz before it was peaking @70 +. So there is an improvment!

    You gained 5 from changing the pump, that's damn good. Don't forget you have 1.5Vcore instead of 1.4+, that's make a lot of different in temp you know.

    Do you really need a 1.5Vcore ? I agree with Deton, a 5 degree drop by changing your pump is great, I have seen people go 2-3 but not 5

    yup, unfortunatelly i do.... I have it setup on 1.525 in BIOS to get 1.520 under full load.... FAIL but still works! I tried every single setting between 1.4 and 1.525.... only the last one works stable 24/7

    it will post but it isnt 24/7 stable (kicks out after 8-10 hours prime) and my rig keeps freezing every now and again without a reason ( no load)

    That drop in temperature is really good. Though It's no wonder, really. The thermaltake-pump you used before is super-weak and the GTZ depends very heavily on flowrates for good temperatures.
    It's the most flow-dependant block I've ever tested. Also, the Thermaltake P500 is the weakest pump I ever tested, so there you go... :-)

    yeah i know that. Some people on other forums were saying that Thermaltake is a blasphemy in terms of watercooling . Oh well i had to learn it the hard way. This was my first watercooling attempt soo i didnt have much idea about it. Only after i bought it u started to read about watercooling. Like we in Poland say "a Man gets wise after the damage was done." Oh well i did my damage and now i fixed it.

    Now next thing to get will be another rad i guess.... I'm kinda struggling between what to get first. I've seen a bargain for 120 feser rad for like 30 euro (usually for me is like 50-60) or get new fans for my rad (prize wise will be the same) hmm.... decision decisions.....
