4790k and it's all stock on there except the ram overclocked to 1866 from 1600. No idea what XMP is but I'll look into it. The tubing I'm the h240x would take a lot of force to bend, but I'll check tomorrow. I'm sure I could hear bubbles and that's all I could do to check for them. I did a full checkup when I reseated my water block as well.

What I meant by check for bubbles is look in the window of the reservoir on your H240-X. Apparently even a tiny amount of the small bubbles could affect performance.

XMP is a setting in the BIOS that automatically sets your RAM to it's rated specs. It is easy and very safe to use. If your RAM is rated at 1866mhz then XMP will set it automatically. Unless on that rare occasion your RAM is not XMP compatible. Before you turn on XMP default the bios first.

Oh okay well the widow is clean I can't see even a single bubble, and I don't hear any gurgling while the pump is on at all. I can try clocking the ram down a little but I can't imagine that such a minor oc on g.skill ram would cause such dramatic changes in cpu temp. Can't test that out until tomorrow though

it's possible you have a poorly timd ihs..Intel used an adhesive type tim from the die to the inside of the ihs..this could be part...once you have excluded everything else that's something to consider...did you have this with another cooler or was this a new build I forget

CPU is older than the H240x by half a yearish, but I no longer have the old cooler. There was only a minor improvement in temps when I switched to this from the Corsair H80, but I was able to run the H240x at much lower RPM to keep the CPU cool. I could try and swap thermal paste, since the tube im using is a few years old at this point. I am using the line method for these installations by the way.

This is what should be expected. Your fan curves have not been configured for your specific build, you are using only a general default. The expectation that you will see a large drop in temps with the unit running at much lower rpm is unrealistic. Also, you don't seem to be using any standardized stress test to give you results....so it is impossible to really tell much of anything.

In short - set up your fan curves and the H240-X will make that H80 look like the toy it is.

Oh no, I did perform the testing with everything at nearly 50% compared to what I normally keep it at the minimum. Going from the lowest setting to 50% I went from 73C to around 67c. If I pumped it up to 100% I expect it would be in the low 60c area, but that would be an incredible amount of noise just so I could overclock. I went crazy and got the biggest cooler I could possibly fit in my case so I could do moderate overclocking with low noise. At the moment I need to have the fans all the way up to 50% just to play End Times at CPU stock clock.

50 percent...this thing comes alive at around 75 percent...if you are worried about noise over performance you will need more rad space...this cooler should be quieter at full speed than the corsair was at 50 percent...I don't think your tents are horrible considering your fans aren't turning but around 750rpms at 50 percent...and pump is only around 1500 rpms at 50%...if you are expecting the world keeping it running it lower than 50 percent that isn't going to happen...given you aren't stretching this coolers legs at all I'm unsure how much you expected since these coolers run best from 60% and up...tbh any improvement over the h80 at this point should be considered a win since these coolers aren't designed to outperform at very low rpms....it honestly sounds like a combination of poor internal tim mixed with an unrealistic expectation of the cooler...for some reason I was under the impression you had this thing running full out and it wasn't performing...it all makes more sense note

looking at the grid in the block itself I'm not sure this will matter much perhaps @Dango will chime in here

That is a really good question! I justtalk with our engineer about this, he told me that its all about contact between the IHS and the base-plate, orientation of the block does not make any different. The coolant in the block will always take away the heat regardless of its orientation, the only thing that change is the contact that every time you re-install the block. The better contact between block and IHS the better performance. And that contact area are different from bock to block and cpu to cpu.
