When I took it off and shook it there did sound like there was liquid in the unit.

Along with the other suggestions try or check the following.
  1. Go into the bios and make sure that the Fan Header you connect the pump to is set to manual or full speed. Make sure that it isn't running in PWM mode or the pump might not run properly.
  2. With the stock cpu heatsink installed, plug the pump of the H60 into a fan header that is running full speed, or use a molex adapter to connect it directly to the PSU and see if the pump is actually running. You should be able to feel some vibrations, pulsing, or something to tell if it is working or not.
  3. Mount the H60's cpu block securely, then remove it and inspect how the TIM spreads. It's possible that it isn't making good enough contact. A small drop in the center of the CPU should spread out under pressure to about the size of a nicket or quarter. If you aren't getting that spread you will need to check the mounting clips to make sure they aren't bent.

Actually, when I turned on the computer the pump didn't seem to be running. There were no vibrations or pulsing or anything. I think the pump itself might be DOA. I contacted NewEgg and am going to RMA it for a new one. Time to put the stock cooler back on mad.gif

Btw, thank you all VERY MUCH for helping me troubleshoot this issue. It is always nice being able to get some different perspectives on how to fix an issue! Truly appreciate it! biggrin.gif

Once I install a fan controller, I'll probably install another 120mm R4 or another LED fan there. I had a fan in the optical bays before i removed the stock fans

I spent half an hour this morning to rewire the cables. But it's a pain to deal with that Scythe cooler. It took me 1.5 hour to reapply ceramic thermal paste on CPU because of it:mad:
Anyway, it worth the time to make Scout cleaner and cooler, here are some pics

Sort of. But what I noticed is the marks (scratches) that appeared to signify that the outside edge of the HeatSpreader might have been making good contact while the main portion over the cores themselves might not have been. I've seen a few of them do that over the years. It doesn't happen often, but it does occasionally. Normally I've seen it on older 65nm Intel Quad Cores like Q6600 and Q6700's. The first time I encountered it we went nuts trying to figure out why the temps with the stock heatsink were better than with a TRUE. The stock heatsink had a round base that fit completely inside the perimeter of the edge of the HeatSpreader while the TRUE was resting on the edge and not exerting any force on the actual cores. Took close to 3 hours of lapping to fix that problem.
