Since my switch to water cooling for my cpu, my temps have gone down. I can't speculate as to the percentage they went down since I don't know the average temperature manipulation. So I was wondering if some of you non-overclocked guys can post your air and water temps. Now I know..like comparing tomatoes and pineapples. But I would like to build a sort of graph showing difference water has on a cpu. The best posts would be from people who started on air and moved onto water and the change they noticed. For instance....on my amd fx 6100 with a stock cooler I was hovering around 28-35c during idle operation, under load it would spike to around 45-50.
CPU (using air stock) Model : FX-6100 Temps 25-35 idle / 35-55 load in celcius
Stock cooler that came with processor
CPU (using liquid ) Model : FX-6100 Temps 13-20 idle / 20-30 load in celcius
Thermaltake 2.0 Pro
The basic point of this thread is I want to see what kind of increase / decrease people end up by changing their stock cooler to an aftermarket cooler..be it liquid or air. Please post results
