No matter what you do to it, it will still give you bad temps, in a loop all the parts have to be good, not just your CPU block. you got to have a good pump, the Bigwater SE has a crap pump with really crap head.
And the rad is junk!! Believe me i have a bigwater 745 before when i first started WCing.
Sell it on eBay and get yourself a custom WC, then you will see temps you like.
Ill tell you, you are not going anywhere near 35idle with that Bigwater.
well i customized the TT bigwater.... changed the pump, tubing and radiator fan,
temps are 39
c internal diode/36
c CPU idle
c internal diode/ 47 CPU load, 20c ambient, @ 3200mhz, 1,6v which bumps the approx power usage of this CPU up to 155W
, stock 89w......so i dont really have a problem with mine....
I would have gone with better WC, but don't have paypal or the like...i always have to pick up my stuff personally.....(came across it when my old waterblock broke)....and there is not much WC and computer stuff available here.....
I know it is not "all that" but there is no need to flame it.....it still got me some hwbot topscores
look if water is flowing fast enough trough your loop, if so, when remounting use the tightening order in the guide i mentioned in a previous post...........
