watercooling issue
Written by: ekamdeep - 22:53 Aug-06-2017

hi everyone this is my first blog so ignore the silly grammar mistakes 

i recently watercooled my cpu with 2x360 swiftech rads 

d5 pump wit 250ml res

xspc raystrom block

the issue is my cpu i7 2600 ocd to 4.2 runs at 38C idle but on load the temps jump to 60-65 (the rads are not hot on touch)

i tried reapplying the thermal paste and resitting the block

i am wondering is this how temps are supposed to be or something is wrong

How did a washer screw did so much damage? I've dropped screws even screwdrivers on motherboards(don't tell anyone :D) and nothing happened. Try re-seating the RAM and try to jiggle the ram slot a little.


If you have somehow damaged the motherboard's paths( with a washer screw O_O) then you can NOT do anything about that, technically you can, but you need proper equipment and you need to find what you have damaged exactly.

no…. the motherboard has way too much plastic on it for you to bake it.

You are cooling just the CPU with 2x 360mm radiators O_O ok…. O_O
Are they passively cooled?

So you have only 2 out of 6/12 fans? Well you said they are NOT hot to the touch, thus it could be the thermal paste you are using, or the pump, get a better quality paste or re-apply it better and see if the water flow is good.

temps are not that bad, but should be better. Almost definitely a pump issue, check out how much water it is able to move. Check if it's working properly. After, check the thermal compound on the cpu and then make sure there are no leaks

if the application of thermal paste is to thick, it insulates the cpu and heat is not transfered properly to the cooler and to the water. In the case of thermal paste, less is always more
