you should try the pee method of cooling it, where you just pee on the cpu while its running, i tried it and never got another hot temp out of it now that its shorted out and dead, 100% success rate for me so far thumb.gif

Oh and I was running Furmark and Prime95 at the same time, to get a better idea of overall system temps.

But nothing can compare to taking a thermal dump on it! xD

Ok, so I dismounted the CPU, spread the TIM (adding just a little bit), and remounted. I'm getting approximately the same results. I'm not sure what's wrong. =(

The mount appears to be very tight but I'm not sure at this point.

thermal dump just sounds like it would be a good heat reliever, we should contact EK immediately.

So I've been running prime95 (w/o furmark at the same time) and here's my conclusions:

My CPU is typically running around 40-50ºC, perhaps closer to 40 on most cores, most of the time. I'm getting spikes in temps occasionally of about 10ºC (maxing at 59), which apparently is a typical issue of a Haswell CPU running with prime95 (http://www.overclock.net/t/1406863/haswell-prime95-jump-in-temps). So to me my temps seem fairly decent.

I think something that would help would be delidding the CPU. I'm not at all confident with it yet, but I think I should be able to do it after enough research. It seems that delidders either mess up their CPU or get a 20ºC temp reduction, which would be amazing. So I definitely want to do it, properly of course.

As far as running the CPU on max load with the GPUs, which adds about another 10ºC, that seem fairly normal. I think the effect could be reduced by making my radiators push/pull (right now they are only exhausting air).

So all in all I think a few modifications could improve performance dramatically.

Wow that is a lot of tubing! But the color of the tube looks really good so i guess thats not that bad after all, aestheticly tongue.gif Good job smile.gif that case looks like a pleasure to work with

Thanks!

Yeah, personally I'm a fan of the tubing look (at least with nice colored tubing). I can, however, totally understand the appeal of reducing it, but I do like the way it looks in my case (and I think I used the least tubing I could with the config I wanted). To me it's not the same as exposed cables or whatever, which ruin the aesthetics. But, certainly, I also enjoy the look of a build with minimized tubing.
