    Water-Cooling Issue on new rig..

    Hi bros,

    Have an issue with newly install water-cooling rig.. Default temp is around 54 which is something not right with a water-cooling setup.. This is my specs:

    Mobo: Asus Crosshair V
    CPU: 1090T
    BIOS: 1503
    RAM: Transcend DDR-3 2000 (4GB)
    GFX: 7970
    PSU: Seasonic Gold 760w



    And 1 more thing is after i shutdown.. there is some empty space in the tube that is near to my reservior.. Should i fill to the full?

    Specs of your loop?

    bro, for the res its normal cause of ur placement, as for the temperatures, the temp contributing to 50+ C is the rams/gfx/cpu.

    example,

    cpu - 38C
    ram - 36C
    gfx - 70C

    average temps, = 144C rad is able to take away 90C of heat, therefore circulating around will be 54C. each individual component u put under water will be contributing to the heat built up unless u can go for 2 loops. this is just an example.

    btw is ur top rad fan intake or exhaust?

    My rad is XSPC EX240 and MCP655 pump and my top rad is exhaust.. Ken bro, do you mean my loop setup is totally wrong?

    loop is fine but i dont think the rad is enough to take heat away, btw what u res model?

    You should not have any air columns in the loop at all cos physics lessons tell us that unlike water (a fluid, incompressible), air (a gas) is

    1. highly compressible, waste of the pump pressure with loss of heat removal capacity
    2. conducts heat very poorly, lagi jialat

    Besides air in the loop also makes lots of unnecessary noise when water cooling is supposed to help you cut noise. So even air bubbles are not quite welcome either which is where bleeding the loop comes in.

    hmm some issues i see:
    1. tubing from your res to your pump does not look like it will feed your pump with fluid consistently. if i'm not wrong, we might think that gravity will push the water into the pump but because it's a closed loop, there is the problem where a vacuum will not allow the water to displace (or something like that). i used to have a similar setup where the feeding of water was parallel to the inlet of the pump. there were a lot of frequent gurgling sounds because of the air bubbles going into the loop.

    2. i don't think a 1 x 240 rad is enough to take the heat load off the cpu, gpu and ram.

    weird, the air-trap should be in your res instead of partially going to your tube b4 res.

    have u tried tilting your whole casing to allow the bubbles to enter the res?

    Yeah i did that before.. But i suspect is it due to i never fill enough coolant to the reservoir and that why the tube got this air columm?

    maybe can try to reverse the tubing on your ram block.
