    swapped the fans to push rather than pull, added a larger res, and remounted the cpu bracket and block. seems like i dropped 5c. in bfv, my cpu temps are around mid 50s to low 60, and gpu is around 54c. previously, cpu temps were at mid 60s to 70s and gpu was at 58-60c. success!

    Hi,
    Good one
    Ideally push pull on rads does the best if one can fit fans on both sides that is :)

    For what you have now, and if you never plan to go SLI, I think a 850 will be fine, but for the same price, why not get the 1000 G2 Grab it while you can before the price goes back up.

    thanks man! yea i have that 1000w psu in my wish list already, i was going to see if my 650W is capable of the current setup. if it ends up shutting down, or over heating, ill end up getting it. no plans for SLI. ever. lol
    If you've got no plans to run SLI, pretty much any 'quality' power supply over 650w is a waste of money even if you overclock heavily. The reason why for example an RTX 2080ti states 650w psu recommended is because they need to account for people who go buy garbage units like this one and wonder why running Prime95 causes their rig to smoke. In the real world, that RTX2080ti uses between far below the TDP of 250-265w. If you're ever interested in seeing how many watts your GPU is using, open an elevated command prompt and type the following:

    "C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVSMI\nvidia-smi.exe" -q -d power

    My GTX 1080 when overclocked to 2,100mhz hits around 190w power draw. I should bust out the kill-a-watt and check what the whole system uses one of these days. Since today isn't that day, a guy i know has an overclocked i5 8600k and RTX 2070 and only draws 330w while gaming for the entire system and just shy of 500w while torture testing for stability.

    How hot is your coolant? And how warm is the ambient room temp? And are you cooling both your CPU and GPU using a single 240mm radiator? If thats the case, then you definitely need more radiator.

    cant say on ambient temps cause i dont have a thermostat, but i got a 360 and a 240 rad for cooling. cpu and gpu are in the same loop. order goes: pump, gpu, 240, cpu, 360, pump. no idea what coolant temps are, but the tubing gets warm to the touch.

    Hi,
    Yeah might be surprising how warm fluid gets full load
    I added a inline water temp sensor pretty easy to incorporate one
    LCD Temperature Display (Green) V2 + G1/4 Inline Sensor by XSPC (Green color)

    Yeah, but TBH, it would be a waste imo... Just not worth it.

    Hi,
    What ever it's about as easy as it gets and is sort of eye opening about temperature ranges...
    Not like they cost an arm and a leg either :)
