That's true, but it's just a normal copper shim.
I'm pretty sure that my CPU socket mechanism is a bit bent or something, so it's not touching CPU directly.
Copper shim is exactly 2,8cm x 2,8cm, so same as my CPU. In theory it should work.

I will also ty to put thermal paste on waterblock, and spread it around so it will be very thin ... then just try to put it on and remove, to see where this thermal paste will land. This should help me figure out, what's blocking waterblock.

But if non of that solution will work, I will just put entire loop out and go back to air cooling.
Spent more than 600€ just for loop, and have so much problems that it won't even let me sleep at night lol

Maybe you could post a pic or two of how you mounted the waterblock and backplate?

Hi,

some pics would be helpfull as BURGER4life said.

But I also would be interessed in your cpu clocks? Did you already overclocked it or is everything on stock?


The 4790k is a beast but also could get very hot in some configuration and i for myself hate the processor for its very unstable temps in idle mode.

That said 80-90° in a stress test is not something i would be suprised on 4.7ghz and more.

On stock with an EKWB Block 55-60°would be normal under load for the 4790k i think.

Everything was on stock ... I didn't even touch any OC settings.
After few minutes of stress testing, temps were 70°C on CPU.

On idle temps were around 30°C.
I'm pretty sure it's not normal that on 1,25V with custom loop I would get over 70°C temps.
70°C temp is fine by me for 1,25V at 4,7GHz, but not 90°C.

i7 4790K have less than 100W TDP, and GTX 1070 have under 200W.
600mm rad should have no problem with geting that heat away.

So if I won't see all my temps under 70°C while stress testing, I will probbably just sell everything from watercooling.
more than 600€ worth, and can't keep those 2 components in check?

Some guy on LinusTech forum have i7 5960x at 1,35V and 2x GTX 1080 OCed to the limit. Sure he have 2x more rad, but his fans are spinning at 350rpm, mine are at 1500. And he have all temps under 60°C all the time.
But I would be okay with even 70°C, but that's it.

Sure you might say that watercooling isn't some magical thing that will make miracle. It would be miracle if everything would be running under 40°C at all times. But if I'm paying 600€ for cooling, I expect better results that on air cooling.

Were you able to take some pictures of your CPU Block installation?

240mm + 360mm rad

All fans to 100%

Airflow is decent and I can feel air going trough radiators.

Changed thermal paste few times already and still same result.

I just don't know what I did wrong and why is it overhating.



Any suggestions?
I doesn't matter even if you put a 60000mm rad on this setup. The problem lies solely in your processor. See here: https://ekwb.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/205236531-My-CPU-is-overheating-while-being-liquid-cooled-

Maybe you're right. It would be more than 80°-90°C while stress testing if there was no contact at all.
