If your fans on your radiator arent set to intake you might try that. Intake fans on radiator are always better then exhaust.

Lets say your ambient is 75f. Lets convert that to celcius. (75-32)/1.8=23.88c

Now lets take your load temps and subtract your ambient temp from it.

70c-23.88=46c above ambient. Thats what is to be expected. 46c above ambient is about what I got with rasa kit ony a Lynnfield clocked at 4.1 ghz. And Lynnfields run crazy hot at 4ghz and above.

You didnt do anything wrong, your temps are fine. You could always get more powerful fans if you want to shed a few more degrees.


If you want to compare your temps with popular air cooler with diff fan configs, search ocn for "the well dressed megahalems" It will show you 65 fan configurations of the megahalems and how they perform in degress c above ambient.


A megahalem with a single gt ap-15 will keep cpu load temps at about 54.5c above ambient. (this was tested on an i7 875k which runs hotter then 2600k)
i just thought water cooling would shave 15c off a air cooler!

Also the same kit used to give me only 40C over ambient on my old i7 920@4.1GHz 1.3V (fans run as intake).
well i have the two stock fans on there, some crappy 1500rpm fan and a yate loon i need to buy some long screws so i can mount my deltas!

ic diamond is thick paste (Overrated to say the least..) ..i would recommend X method or more pressure,your temps are a bit high ,try MX-2 or PK1

OP: I have something you can try that some rasa owners dont know about. The thumb screws that you use to tighten the block in place has seperate (brackets?) under the top part of the screw. When you reapply your thermal compound tighten the screws down by hand as tight as they will go. Then tighten the bracket below the head of the screw. This will apply even more pressure onto the water block. These brackets are what pushes down on the springs. This will definately create a better contact surface.

Yea but the op was guestimating his ambients. Without an accurate ambient temp measurement, we will never know the exact temp above ambient he is getting. Also, some chips run hotter than others, and you are using 2000rpm fans while he is using the stock (1700rpm) fans that came with the kit. There is just too many inaccurate variables to make a educated comparison. My explanation was just a rough estimate of what kind of temps I was getting vs what temps he is getting.

op: I highly recommend buying a indoor/outdoor digital thermometer that can take rapid readings. Some pet stores sell them with probes that take readings every 10-20 seconds. These are great as they update very fast.

Remember, temps mean nothing without an accurate ambient temp.
Ive seen a situation where a chip (i7 950 @ 4ghz) was running at 75c and it was considered great temps given that persons ambient temps, which if i recall was 85-90f.
