I suppose, granted I haven't tuned all of the OC settings very much, so it was probably one of the settings I left on Auto (because there looked to be a fair few more than I'm used to, so decided I needed to do some more research) that let it heat up some, I also forgot to turn the EPU off which wouldn't be so much of a problem if I could use my custom fan profiles I created through the Fan Control in my motherboard software, with the setting in the EPU control software instead of needing to use default ASUS profiles.
Pach how do you deal with the tiny air bubbles and pockets in the reservoir? For the air bubbles especially the big ones I've utilzed the air pocket ironically enough so that while I tilt it slightly the most of the bubbles coming from the tubing into the reservoir don't all go straight into the pump and outlet back into the tubing. I'm thinking someone at XSPC was lazy when designing the single DDC reservoir, I mean why put the inlet for the water coming from the loop right on top of the place where the pump draws the water in from? I can only think the did it so the laout was somewhat consistent for the split chamber and dual pump reservoirs.
As I said I need to add the Mayhems (I only didn't do it when I filled it the this last time because I was hoping to find a way to get rid of the tiny bubbles and the air pocket which is keeping me from adding more fluid)
As for delidding I've read about it for these chips but despite seeing a couple posts where it said Intel would still allow an RMA...
