First timer for Water Cooler

Recommended Posts

I have bought a new MB (Asus Sabertooth Z170 Mark 1) and a i7-6700K 4GHz and with it a CM Nepton 240M.

 

 

My question is, what is the max. temp. for watercooling a CPU, mine is approx 20-21° in idle and full load a peak at 80° in "Stress CPU" (CPU-Z v1.73.0.x64)

 

i7-6700K (OC to 4.4GHz, have tryed 4.6GHz, giving Â° on 5-10° higher)

 

AIDA v5.50.3600

RealTemp v3.70

 

AIDA: idle 20-21° - load 80-81°

RealTemp: idle 18-20° - load 66-67°

 

Stopping stresstest, temp. drops in a sec. to <30°, with 4-4GHz, is this to warm?

Your load temp is on the high side, but within specs. 

What voltage did you set for the vCore?

And where is your nepton 240m located? And fans are set to intake or outtake?

1: Thanks for answer.

 

2: I don't know, because i use the BIOS to OC my MB (3 ways 2 do it, Stock, Tower and Water)

Stock max.: 4.2GHz

Tower max.: 4.4GHz

Water max.: 4.6Ghz

 

AIDA say (if u can use it) CPU VID: 0.788 V  -  VCCSA: 2-040 V (4.4GHz now)

 

Test: (Have pictures)

4.2GHz: Low 22°, High 65°

4.6GHz: Low 22°, High 79°

4.6GHz Prime95: Low 22°, High 93°

 

Soo i lowered my max. speed to 4.4GHz

 

First time i ever use Watercooler new CPU and WC, used CM pasta, have some big trouble with cables (3 stick onboard - CPU, OPT and Watercooler)

 

WC on watercooler, Fans on CPU, work fine, fans starts fast when over 55° (set in BIOS) Dont use BIOS setting for WC

 

3: Nepton 240M on top in Cosmos II, fans over radiator, blowing air out.

 

Kindly TeBo.

If you use automatic settings (including) vCore, it's very difficult to control.

Have you done overclocking before?

Nope, i let the Asus MB do it for me, have allways used standard speed on my MB before, but with this MB i tryed it, because the MB offer it.

Even my old i7-4771K runs with standard speed.

AIDA seems to get higher temps  :( between 10-15° higher than other programs.

 

Have done some testing with other programs, now benching with CPU-Z.

 

AIDA says 80° - 83°

RealTemp says 67° - 70°

HWMonitor says 67° - 69°

 

I think i in the end i SKIP aida  :( not soo good a program anymore as before.

 

HWM - vCore low: 0.770 V - High: 1.388 V.

 

i DON'T recommend using or installing "Asus AI Suite" on a newer Asus MB, the program HIDE some things in HWmonitor and AIDA.

I use the BIOS to steer my fans, not "Asus AI Suite"
