You might want to make sure theres no air in the system, and make sure the fan is moving a good bit of air over the radiator etc.

Otherwise let it on for a few days with something running that will periodically heat up the CPU, the block/AS5/processor takes a little while to "burn in" as some people call it. I know my temps drop about a week after I removed the HS and put it back on.

Actually... Alot of people have stated the the Thermaltake Big Water system is not that good. I have not used one myself so I can only pass on what I have heard. However you might check for air in the system. If no air in system then let the AS5 cure, it will take 200 hours to do that, and see what the temps are then.

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

if you just installed if, you'll probably have to wait for air to bleed out of the system a little bit, and wait for AS5 to break in before you get max. performance out of it


though thoes temps are pretty typical for a bigwater on a s478 prescott... the bigwater just isn't a good kit... i mean, yes, its water cooling, but a very crappy kit at it :-/

agreed, let the as5 cure, and purge the system. it is sealed for the best performance. try coolants aswell.maybe a chiller.
