maybe you should try it as an intake so you don't get the heat from the case running through the rad

Already gone through this... I have CM R4's with 90CFM... The only improvement I can think about are Gentle Typhoons, and only to gain 10CFM, plus, they are not sold in Brazil...

Tried that already, the gain was about 1-2C.. Not effective

and the fact that your idle temps are very good makes me think that it's not a defective unit.
Hmm thanks for the heads up, but I'm pretty much sure after several reseating tries, that the block is well-attached to the cpu

ok im running out of ideas lol only thing i can think of now is the way the thermal paste was applied i remember i re seated my NH D14 about 6 or 7 times before i got it perfect the issue for me was not enough thermal paste i know how it sounds but a rice size drop is not enough i put about a 3x rice size drop in the center of the CPU

Hmm, try to load the CPU, and keep a finger on the side of the rad (not in the fan to see if it gets warmer.

Maybe you did not prime the pump - forget that it's "sealed."

Try laying the machine on one side such that the rad is on top of the pump while the pump is spinning; well, any position that makes the air in the pump run up in the rad would do.

Too bad that H60 doesn't play nice. My 212+ beats that H60 then, lol!
At 4.4Ghz + HT on 1.418v my Idle is sitting at 32-39 and load gets up
to 82 max.
