First custom loop with i7 4770k, are my temps right?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I have no prior experience with water cooling, not even AIOs and just built my first custom loop. Specs are below:

EK Supremacy EVO Nickel-Acetal Block
XSPC AX240 Rad
EK DDC 3.2 PWN Pump
EK X3 150 Reservoir


I'm running an i7 4770k at 4.5 GHz/1.25V. It is at about 28C idle and in IBT I'm getting 73C/68C on the hottest/coolest cores which seems quite hot for a custom loop. But compared to my old cooler (Noctua NH-U12S) my idle temps drop by ~8C and IBT load temps ~20C, same ambient temps and everything. So is it working as intended or should I be worried that I messed up somewhere?

Seems hot, remount the block. Use the TIM residue from the first mount as a guide for how much to do on the second mount. Make sure you have the inlet/outlet correct. IIRC the supremacy needs to have the inlet be the center-most barb on the block.

Seems normal to me on only a 240 rad. 4770ks run hot. Can always de-lid it but 73 degrees is fine any way so i don't see the point.

Those load temps on IBT are very good actually.
