Hydro X Temperature Comparisons


Recommended Posts

Recently completed build in a Corsair 5000X and I am curious to see how the perfomance of the loop (temperatures) compares to other builds.

 

The top radiator is in a push / pull configuration as you can fit 3 fans on the top of the case. The second radiator is to the right of the mobo. The case has a toal of 13 x LL120 fans.

 

Main components:

 

AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT CPU

 

ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero X570 AMD Motherboard

 

ASUS ROG Strix Nvidia GeForce RTX3070 OC 8GB GPU

 

It runs fairly cool, idle temp of the waterloop of around 31C and the CPU of 47C and the GPU 31C.

 

Gaming (Cyberpunk 2077 with everything set to ultra or psycho, RT on, DLSS to ultra performance) I get around 80-90 FPS indoors dropping to 55-60 outdoors, and temps of around 35C in the loop, 65C on the CPU and 45C on the GPU.

 

Under stress test (Furmark ROG Edition GPU and ROG CPU Burner) with both CPU and GPU under test, loop stays around 36.5C, GPU at 49C and CPU 83C.

 

In both settings, based on custom curves I set the the fans only get to around 1,150RPM and are pretty quiet. The water pump is set to a fixed 60% RPM.

I get more or less the same temps on my build. that's fairly good.

I don't know how the 3070 fares in idle, but i noticed if i set the 3090 power setting to performance on the Nvidia control panel, the GPU never drops below around 110W, keeping the loop around the values you have, 31°C.

If i set it to normal, the GPU idles at 38W and the loop fully cools down to a few degrees above ambient. Maybe that's something to look at.

Nice pics. I was eyeing that case and was worried about how to plug in the EPS cables in the top corner after watching a video. Seems like you managed to do just fine!

 

Thanks for posting temps too. I have major issues with my 500D RGB SE, but it looks like I need to go both exhaust on my rads to fix it. Bought this case a couple of years ago not thinking that I'd ever use it to do my own loop. I was considering the 5000D as a replacement and after looking at your results, I might do it sometime later. Thanks so much for sharing.

Nice Theme you hace going. Good choice ;):

 

My setup is the following:

 

Corsair 5000X:

Asus Maximus Xii Hero mobo / Intel i7 10700K

Evga FTW3 Ultra 3080

 

Corsair XD5 -pump /res 2, Ek - monoblock and Bykski Gpu -block.

2 x Corsair 360 rads. All fans are Corsair ML 120s. Both radiators are in push configuration. Side rad fans pushing air out anm the top rad fans are pushing air in the case.

This seem not logical at first, but the front fans pushing air in makes the setup work really nicely.

 

I have set a custom fan curve where the fans rarely go past 850 rpm and a Pump curve where the pump speed is at around 60%.

 

Loop temp says under 28C in idle and In long gaming sessions they go to around 35C.

 

When Stress testing a war loop with for Prime 95 and Heaven running simultaneously for 10 minutes the CPU temp riser to about 80 degrees and The GPU stays at 46-48 degrees.

 

Cpu is overclocked at a stable continuous 5GHz and GPU is at 2080Ghz with Memory clocked t0 10400Mhz.

I have only a CPU, Ryzen 5600X, on my loop so far. Running Einstein@Home with all cores 100% time, the auto boost will take it to 4.5Ghz at 75 watts. After all day of that, the CPU will be 70C (bouncing +/- 1C) and the coolant will be steady at 31C. That's with an XD3 pump, XC7 block, and a 280mm radiator in the top of a Corsair 280x. Some day I hope to be lucky enough to be able to buy a video card that can be added in :/

I would actually recommend that you turn the rear fan around so it pulls air into the case. There is no reason for that one to be exhaust when you already have 6 exhaust fans on your radiator, and only 3 intake fans in the front. Downside is a little dust, but should not be anything major unless your case is on a carpet next to your cat/dog bed :D

I had the fans above the top rad pushing air in the case, but after your comment, I actually changed the top rad so its now pulling out of the case and I turned the back fan so it pulls air in. Loop temps did not change that much, but the ddr4's are a lot cooler now. So thanks for the suggestion.
