Help With Custom Loop

would be the most productive solution for the CPU and GPU.

Recommended Posts

Ok guys so in somewhat of a dilemma i have a corsair 350d and i did a custom loop but have pulled it down due to my gpu getting what i think was suffocated.

So what i need help with is i guess fan and loop order.

I have a 55mm thick ek rad that will only fit at the front.

And my res is an xspc v4 750 

I had a 970 in it and it never got hot but yesterday i swapped out the 970 for a 780ti and while playing bf4 the gpu got to 80c and the case was hot at the front and the rad was hot too

 

So can someone help?

780ti runs at around 80c. Thats normal. 

 

780ti uses more power, is a more powerful card, and blows alot hotter than a 970. I think you're fine. 

 

Make sure you have an intake somewhere into the case, (front?) and it will be golden.

But with my stock intel cooler it runs at 64c in battelfield but with the water loop its really hot in there.How should i have the fans setup?

Looks like the front of the case is choking your airflow. Can you not open it up or relocate the rad?

What's the ambient temp of your room?

Maybe have the front fans exhaust and the rear and top fans be intake?

Could you mspaint the air flow over the picture based on each fan?

ITs been completely taken apart so isnt in there now until i figure this our properly.No way to relocate rad as its 55mm thick and wont fit up top.

 

So you think the picture i posted looks to be the way to go?

Yep its not the cpu that gets hot the loop as staying under 55c in prime 95 small ffts for an hour

Are your fans air flow or static pressure fans? If not certain, look at them. Large gaps= air flow. Static pressure is best for water chilling.

House many fins per inch? What radiator is it?

Can you remove only the section covering the fans?

I would recommend pull for radiator fans.

So, the CPU is good, just the 780 is cooking? Hmmm.... I'm not sure exactly what to do for this. I'd have to say try exhausting out the front with the rest of the fans being intake.

They are coolermaster r4s with 44.4 cfm 

Radiator is the ek 55mm thick 240what do you mean by remove only section covering fans?

It's not really applicable. Looks like that section isn't removable.

Before the 780ti add in everything was great so im trying to figure a way to combat this heat?

problem is difficult.

 

the 350d/750d/900d all suffer from restricted intake problems. compound

that with heated air from the radiator flooding the interior, your GPU will have

no fresh cooler air to use for cooling, so it's temperatures will normally go up

as the ambient air temperature it uses is higher than it was before.

 

but since you have disassembled the system, the thing to have done would

be modify the air intake to supply more air to the radiator, thus lower the

operating temperature to the CPU, in turn lowering the ambient air temperature

in the case.

 

simple fix, use a ST30 240 in the roof and open the front intake up to have the

GPU get unheated air.
