semi-new loop installed looking like i have issues

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So, made the switch over to a z77 board and bought a 26k. also got a new block the xspc raystorm.

so this morning, i re-did the loop and added a new block. first thing i have noticed is the water is foggy. please see vid

only thing i have done was clean the loop with 2 gallons of distilled water and then added fresh distilled water and a few drops of nuke.

now my other concern is, when i open up real temps the cores and their varying temps really got me puzzled. did i do something wrong, is this as odd to you all or is this just me

anyways, any help would be appreciated.

Not sure about the water color issue, but the varying core temps are normal.

Lots of 2500/2600k owners (myself included) have 1 or 2 cores running anywhere from 5-10C higher than the others.

Nothing to be worried about, just the way the chips are.

As for the clouding, I could only imagine that it is either particles that had been settled until you redid your loop, and now have been re-introduced into the loop, or it could be leftover manufacturing material from the new block you added.

As for the varying temperatures, the only thing I could think of for this is an uneven application of your thermal compound, or an uneven pressure from your water block onto your processor. Either way, I'd try another mount of the CPU block, while taking both of these things into consideration during the re-installation.

The cloudy liquid might be due to you redoing the loop, so lots of tiny tiny air bubbles? I've had it a couple of times.

Some of the taps in my house have foggy water like that because of very tiny air bubbles. After some time they should start to disappear though if that's what they are. That's what it looks like, but then you say you added distilled, so perhaps you have an extremely minute leak somewhere in your system introducing bubbles? Does it even look like bubbles in person though? I could be way off. What makes me think that's what it is is that the water gets more clear towards the bottom of the res.

so re-did the loop today and bam...cloud gone. cleaned using 2 gallons of distilled water flushing all the parts. i think it had to do with the new block (which not happy with by the way. think im going to go back to the heat killer or something else. this raystorm and it's temps to me are not impressive.

anyways thanks for the help
