haha my bad, it was late at night so i wasnt reading right
if you mounted correctly such as crisscross pattern and a dab of thermal paste in the middle then you can check the pump speed and fan speeds, if those are reading fine then the software temp readout/sensor is probably wonky or the unit itself... the only way to rule that out is if you have another cooler to prove it otherwise, if an alternative cooler yields the same results then it could be the software/sensor giving false readouts which could happen, unless you've used this before and have had lower temps readouts (prior h80i)
