So out of the three 3820's I've had (all Costa), two of them OC great.. both stable at 5Ghz around 1.5V.

The other one was crap, max OC of 4.4Ghz (using 43x with 104 BCLK)

GPU coolers typically take much more thermal paste compared to CPU due to poor contact, I've done it alot of times and I still usually have to mount more than once to get good temps on full cover GPU blocks. (non full-cover GPU blocks are typically easier to mount)

Using a better paste may help too, Tuniq TX-4 reportedly has the best performance in poor contact situations, I've been using it on my GPU's lately and it does seem to help. On CPU I use prolima PK-1 cause its cheaper.

Also you should be careful using AS5 on a GPU since its conductive.

thanks for all your help...i just tightened the **** out of them and i am now getting 42 idle and 60 load which is better but i was getting 62 with reference cooler @ 100 fan speed

3820 reference cooler? I didn't think there was one?

well madman...i think i am about to pull the trigger on a raystorm block, xspc RX240 rad, XSPC res and pump as well

here is the link http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16893/ex-wat-221/XSPC_Raystorm_750_RX240_Extreme_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_New_Rev_4_Pump_Included_w_Free_Dead-Water.html?tl=g30c83s137

and also a few of these http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17025/ex-tub-1387/Phobya_Reusable_12_OD_Hose_Clamp_-_Red_68249.html?tl=g30c289s721

I've got that xspc kit zero, its reaaaaaal good. Just check the bay res when you get it, the top plate of mine wasn't sealed down properly and I've since had to silicone all around the top plate to stop it leaking.
Aside from that, its one bad ass first step to a custom loop.
