It was checked twice before with (old) MX-2, TIM print near perfect, no improvements after reseating, so I went with IC Diamond which resulted in around 5C lower temps under load, but still way too high.
it could my CPU (many 1155 IVB chips have had the TIM under IHS poorly applied in factory) or it could be something clogging/restricting the proper flow inside Raystorm (a little doubtful, after flushing), time will tell.

I'm going to order my kit tonight from FrozenCPU.

Sorry, I mistakenly posted this is the Rasa thread..

I just received an EX 240 kit with the D5 pump and dual bay reservoir. Everything seems very high quality, but there are some difficulties.

For one, the back plate for socket 1155 needed to be relieved in one area to clear components on an MSi Z77 MPower board. Not a big problem, but when I try to apply the Raystorm waterblock, it seems as it the mounting rods are too short. The block has to be tilted to even start the threads into the backplate. This is just not correct. The screws should be able to be bottomed out in the backplate while the block remains flat on the cpu. Then pressure can be applied with the secondary nuts to apply pressure to the springs. I've seen other people's plexi block mounts bent from the pressure, so I ordered the aluminum clamp flange for the block.
No way will this block sit flat on the processor for mounting. Am I doing something wrong... or what gives?

Yesterday i installed my raystorm. I cant say im happy with my temps. Running at 4.22ghz with 1.12v it idles at 28-31c and load after 1h of folding at 65-69c with 23-24c ambient. Parts are all listed in my sig. Did i made a bad mount? Shall i try to reseat the block? Any special attention when istalling the block with the M5G board?

I'm looking into buying compression fittings for my entire loop (CPU/Rad/Pump+Res). What size is ideal for the RS240 kit?

I'm considering these - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12503/ex-tub-788/XSPC_G14_Thread_12_ID_x_34_OD_Low_Profile_Compression_Fitting_-_Black_Chrome.html?tl=c409s1609b49

not sure, but I have similar trouble. Mine even at stock 3770K clocks and ambient around 26C goes up to 65C with Intel Burn Test max load. wondering what is wrong, but it could be just the darned i7 3770K and its improper TIM under IHS issue. to rule it out make sure you plumbed the hoses correctly (the inlet port is marked on Raystorm, make sure it is correct with flow of your loop), reseat the block and re-check temps.

Everything is as it should. Inlet port, tubing, res before pump, air bleed etc. its not my first wc setup but i was expecting better temps tbh. I think i ll have to try and reseat the blo, although i doubt it will make any difference. Did you manage to find a solution to your problem? Because i u said u had problems even at stock speed and i see 4.9Ghz in your sig tongue.gif

hehe, yeah, I stabilized 4.9GHz and benchmarked it thanks to lowering my ambient room temps with room AC running at full blast (ambient down to 23-24C from usual 27-28C) and putting some extra fans on 1 of radiators (was pull only, now push-pull), I also installed a 24V converter for my D5 Strong pump, so better flow also helped. But to be honest, no, I haven't fixed the issue LOL! I think it's my CPU, but anyways, I will be opening Raystorm block to check for dirt limiting water flow and such during this weekend. If that yields nothing, and re-seating the block with a different TIM. now running IC Diamond on it but it's hard to spread it right and thin enough, so want to try a new Prolimatech PK-3 (recently came out).

I run 4.8Ghz daily with 25% LLC and high vcore offsets and radiator fans bumping up when needed based on MB PWM output through my fan controller. it's good this way, idles cool and can handle the heat under load, so normally in gaming I don't exceed 80C ... but running Intel Burn test brings the temps to oven hot levels (100C) ...

Just a question

Completed my loop with the rx360 rad, raystorm amd cpu block and a d5vario pump and top, with xspc single bay res. What is the optimal speed, temperature wise for the pump as it has 5 settings. It was set to number 2 when arrived.

Thanks in advance
