Hello. I am new to watercooling. I am getting very erratic temperatures, as seen here. This happens even before Aida reports throttling. I have tried reapplying thermal paste. The issue isn't heat, it is that I am getting jumps from ~70 to ~90, then back down.

The loop is... Res (above) -> Pump -> CPU -> Chipset (barbs built into board) -> Rad

I am using the EK Silent fans, which are pulling air from outside and pushing into the case. I am not expecting miracle temperatures, but rather concerned by the huge heat jumps. Any idea?

Edit: I see these jumps idle as well, going from 35 all the way up to 65....

Edit: Also concerned by Core 1's max temp of 99, and core 4's max temp of 79. Why such a large spread? I don't believe I had that on air. I cant figure out what I did wrong.

Double Edit: This only seems to happen in Aida. Probably not my loop then. Stable temps in prime.
