Howsit?

There are better coolers around but it depends on what you want out of the PC and how much to spend.
The temps are fine,are you trying for more Mhz?

Those are very high temperatures... Then again you are using koolance products, might suggest you to re-think a new w/c build before pushing it further.

I probably wouldn't have gone for the Exos, but I've seen several post in various places where people are pretty happy with it. I would consider a different Water block, though.

No, but and turning an adequate performance. Your CPU block isn't even Koolance's latest. You didn't say which pump you had, however Koolance also uses the the DDC 3.2 that is very common, and they have their own top.

Google reviews on the D-Tek Fuzion, XSPC H20 Delta, and EK Supreme. You can also google Koolance's latest block. The Fuzion is often included for comparison.

That will give you an idea of the differences between water blocks.

Are the fans in push or pull? 25mm or 38'' deep. I am pretty sure there isn't a shroud. And the radiator is very close to its backing.

Did it have 6mm (1/4") or 10mm (3/8") tubing? While there appears to be little difference between 3/8" and 1/2", 1/4" can be worth a couple of degrees I believe.

A kit like the EXOS is a good way to start water cooling. I used a kit also. And you are supporting a good overclock on it. You could modify it for significantly better performance:
  1. Current design water block, mount, and nozzles: $65-90.
  2. Use 3/8" or 1/2" ID hose with good nozzles $20-40
  3. Cut out the top of your case and the bottom of the EXOS, mount your rad in the top of the case, seal the EXOS top to make it a shroud, and use 38mm fans in pull. Maybe $60-100 including the fans depending on mounting you use for the radiator.
  4. 4. A radiator change. However, I think the jury is still out on that. I don't know of any credible test of the Koolance, and virtually all the reviews are limited and all that I know of had an issue of one type or another. A radiator can run between $60 and $200. The most popular are in the $120-140 range. However, it isn't clear they have more than a trivial improvement over a $70 radiator.
Hope this helps.
