So I just finished custom watercooling my streaming PC and here are the specs below-


66797

Motherboard- Asus MAXIMUS VII Gene
RAM- Corsair Vengence 16GB (2×8) DDR3 21330Mhz
GFX Card- Asus GeForce GTX750ti 2G STRIX
Capture Cards- Aver Media Live Gamer HD x 2
SSD- Samsung EVO SERIES 250GB
HDD- WD 4TB Caviar Black 7200rpm
PSU- Corsair AX750i Platinum Power Supply
CASE- Phanteks Enthu Evlov mATX

Watercooling Components-

EKWB

CPU Block- Supremecy Evo
Rads- LC Solution Coolstream PE 240 x 2
Fans- Vardar 2200RPM x 4
Pump- D5 PWM Pump

And here are the temps I am getting under load, which I think should be way cooler. Am I wrong?

66796



If anyone could share their thoughts and insights, that would be great.

Thanks in Advanced

Under load it changes the vcore to a Max of 1.86 @ 4.4ghz

With temps a 63c average with Fans and Pump on Max.

That's looking better !

it looks like 1.184v was the max voltage and 60c max temp on core 2, the rest were in the 50's.

That looks pretty good to me.

With all 4 cores at 4.4ghz, its a good temp but not sure if you should be getting lower with your setup.

A pc in my house, 4790k 4.4ghz, 1.2v fixed, current limit 105A, kraken x62, p95 max power test, was over 80degC. Will check later on the actual value.
A lot of the heat is due to the integrated voltage regulator.
