Do the heat killer 3.0s come with any kind of back plate at all? I just ordered mine and it should be here on 8th or 9th. I cant seem to get my temps down where i think they should be with this setup.
CPU i7 920 4.2GHz @ 1.26v lapped
MB Rampage II Extreme
Ram Corsair XMS3 1600 1.56v
PSU Corsair HX1000
Pump swiftech MCP655
Rads 2 swiftech MCR220. 1 Danger Den X-FLow Black Ice Pro II 220
Cpu block Danger Den MC-TDX
Res Danger Den RAD-Reservoir
Thermal compound Antec formula 5. Same as asc 5 I was told.
Case HAF 932
Fans pulling air in to the case push pull on 2 internal rads. Fans pushing air on back rad.
Room temp 21c
Idle temp 41,38,39,35
Max load temp 81,79,75,73
These temps just don't seem right to me. I have reseated the cpu block 20 or more times over the last 2 weeks and the temps change maybe 1 or 2c at idle and 3 to 4c full load. I have a heat killer 3.0 on the way but would like to know if there is any thing I can do to get it colder. I mean I have more than enough rad for an I7 and a Video loop. My pump is good and my flow is fine. One thing I did find odd is that none of the rads get even warm when its pushing 80c out of the cpu. Is this an indicator that my cpu block just isn't picking up the heat or just not enough?
Here is a pic of my rig. You can see that I didn't make any really long runs with the tubing and only used 1 T fitting and 1 90.
Any help would be great. If you need more info just let me know and ill post it.
