975X NB temps

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I have a 975X that runs up to 60+ when gaming on the northbridge.

 

I invested in a swifttech MCW30 which is now running and I used Arctic Ceramique as the thermal paste.

The NB is now running at under 50 and up to 55 for gaming.

Yours views please, is this normal (also considering the Ceramique is burning in)

 

regards

Hi

To be honest case air flow is non existent as it is in an enclosed area

(computer desk scenario) that backs against a wall.

The case also has to be closed as I have a 2 and 3 year old budding computer helpers (along with a mad cat!)

To compound matters the desk is also located in a sun trap as it sits next to a patio window :mad:

Hope this helps

Doc

Put a small fan over the heatsink, I have my nb voltage at 1.7 and just replaced the stock tim to the ceramique and put a small fan over it and even under load it never hits 60.

By the way, what's the rest of your watercooling system made of?

The system is made of;

 

1*Aqua extreme MP1 block

1*Laing 18w pump

1*Swiftech MRC 220 Quiet series

1*Swiftech MRW 30 chipset block

1*Swiftech reservoir micro res

 

All on 1/2 ID tubing.

 

Flow is Rad->CPU Block->NB Block->Reservoir->Pump

 

The ambient temp is normally 20-22

 

hope this is enough info.

 

Ant suggestions greatly received as this is my first go at WC

 

regards
