User error. Blaming it on XSPC.
Next time, take your time when building it.
You would have seen that the screws were too long.
The kit comes with longer screws and shorter screws.

You clearly did not read my entire post, where it says,

Some of the issue with your temps is the size of the rad you have, a 360 is just about enough imo to clear heat from the CPU and a GPU, so you would have a higher water temp than normal.

The reason for the great temps on the GPU and worse temps on CPU is a simple case of thermodynamics...

GPU uses about 200-300W and spreads that heat over a large area, aka, you have a huge full cover block and it's split into RAM and the core (and mosfets? not that good at electronics).

The CPU is tiny by comparison but uses a comparable amount of power, you have to transfer a lot more heat through a much smaller surface area. IMO the best gains here come from reseating, because anything you can do to increase the thermal conduction between CPU and block helps a lot.



As for the rad, sorry to hear that. Some rads have little metal plates underneath to stop you from being able to screw into the rad, you have to be careful with the ones that don't but it's not something that is generally made public. I would try for an RMA on the rad, it is an easy mistake to make and I have had good experiences with XSPC before in customer service, definitely worth giving it a go.

Damaging the radiator was your fault, but I agree XSPC should have REAL installation instructions for people buying it. Their customer support is top notch, I'd give it a shot. I wouldn't be surprised if they did replace the radiator.

Your information about the GPU heat makes 110% sense, I should have thought of it first but now that you mention it that makes perfect sense. I will try a re seat over the weekend and hope for the best :-)

Thank you

Oh, just read you're using a swiftech rad.

From what I read earlier today, they're not as good as the XSPC ones.

If you get the RMA though, ofc you will have the choice of both, I don't know if the pump will stand for 2 rads in the loop with a GPU block and CPU block, but I'd give it a try if I got the chance, just to see if it helped

Did you use the thermal paste that came with the kit? I don't know if it's crap or I just mounted it better the second time, but I got a good drop in temps after using a different thermal compound and application technique.

My rs kit installed with nothing more then user errors..

I'd toss ya a little for the busted rad if you can't email.

First off, swearing is not allowed here at ocn. Please do not do it again.

Secondly, it was technically your fault with the radiator. The rasa kit does come with different sized screws. The longer screws are meant to attach a fan to first, then to the rad. There are also smaller screws for your scenario. Next time, don't rush into things and take your time.

Also, I have the same issue, my cpu temps aren't that great, but my gpu temps are. The reason being that like crabid said, gpu's have much more area to exchange heat with, the cpu block doesn't. The only way to significantly decrease your temps would be to snatch up another rad, which will bring your water temps down, and therefore make it much easier to transfer the heat away from your cpu.

Good luck.
