Also do you have the chill software set up and using the profiles? His sounds like a helicopter w/o it.
OC-UK built my comp, so I trust the installation of the cooler. I had some problems on the software side of things, but so have many others. Got around this by ionstalling chillcontrol vi, which allows profile modifications, gives liquid temp, but doesnt display a cpu temp figure, only graph. Likewise without these drivers installed, its super loud ruinning at I believe 100%!
Using HWinfo64 I'm getting idle temps of 40c. Theres talks of not trusting these readings here
transported my rig to saudi where outside temps can hit mid 50+. In my room the aircon is pretty much always set to 16c, but with windows and doors open, it's still going to be hotter than in many other countries. Maybe this has an affect.
