Default but my Tamb was 29°
This cheap AIO need many CFM to run correctly, otherwise its not competitive.
Try to :
- put your H80i in intake air mode
- set the fans at least in push or pull / push ( better )
- set the fans in the radiator to max ( disable Qfan )
and will see.
I figured it out, took it off to see the TIM, seems like it wasn;t making contact with the middle of the CPU, what do I do?
Some mobos have caps that hit the tubes on the right side of the block causing improper contact. The only way I have seen people fix it is to rotate it 90 degrees clockwise so the tubes are coming out the bottom. The Corsair logo will of course also be sideways too however the block should make proper contact with your IHS. Don't reuse the stock thermal paste make sure you clean it off the block and IHS with 90%+ isopropyl alcohol and reapply TIM on the IHS. With TIM less is more and let the block itself spread it for you too.

how do you know it ?
have you see the thermal compound imprint in the IHS and WB base ?
I took off the waterblock and saw a big circle in the middle of the CPU with no paste whereas the rest was covered. the WB itself had a matching circle of paste left on it. I got them to remount it but temps are the same so I assume its still not making contact. There was about a 3rd of the CPU in the middle with no TIM. Should I get them to mount the WB first this time? Maybe the stiffness of the hose is causing it not to make contact when screwing down?
