the cooler is making full contact...im getting a decent spread of TIM...its not the greatest ive seen but its full covering the necessary parts

pump wire has been moved to all the available fan headers on the mainboard...cpu_fan,pwr_fan and ch_fan and depending on header it can run as slow as 900rpm and as fast at 4400rpm....according to Corsair the pump can only run at a max rpm of 1200 so it reading of 4400 is probably catching it in like a triple duty type thing...cant really explain it

so im at my wits end and im on the verge of just RMA'ing the cooler and going with something that proven to be a good cooler like the hyper 212+ or something similar

It seems like you've been pretty thorough, so maybe you're right. Sorry things haven't worked out for you.

i try to be...ive been doing this a long time...granted i dont know everything but i know enough and seen enough to try and troubleshoot till there is only a couple options left

btw ive even tried the stock intel HSF and it only ran 2 degrees hotter at idle and 4 degrees hotter on load...so that right there is kinda telling

but my concern is...is it REALLY the cooler thats the issue or could it be the cpu is just being a redheaded step child and just getting hot headed cause its a bad chip

but i will say...i was able to OC this chip to 4.5ghz at 1.2v and it was stable for 30min at 69c...so im leaning on the cooler now

What's your average ambient temp? This might be a contributing factor. Also have you tried fans other than Noctua? I like Noctua, but I'm not sure they're as good as advertised for their price. I've spent a whopping $24 on Yate Loons before shipping and I have 6 of them. Yates have excellent Static Pressure IMHO.

ambient in my house is about 23c so about 73f and outside its hot about 29c or about 85f....but how my case is setup right now...i have a ceiling fan blowing down on the case along with the AC vent directed right into the case side window

i have tried other fans...but only 120mm R4's which oddly enough raised the temp a little...i think its cause the as too fast @2000rpm....i didnt bother with throttling them down at all as they are fans i was going to use in my side window when i get my plexi window back

honestly...i think its really a dud cooler....im not sure going to another h60 is smart or even trying an h50 as i cant afford an h70

Regulated max power output:<30W
I'm not sure if this is max power for entire unit or just one line.

Quick question regarding mother board fan control. Should I keep it disabled, or enable it with regards to the H60? I've heard conflicting stories regarding the mother board fan control in the BIOS...

You could... but there's really no point imo.

Easier to set it at a certain speed and be done with it :\\

Whatever you do, make sure you have the pump hooked up to a constant, non tampered 3 pin fan header... last thing you need is for the pump to not get all the power it needs

I have to ask, are you running the latest BIOS for your board,...seems odd it's showing 4400rpm, only 2 to 4 degrees difference to stock cooler AND you're able to o/c to 4.5GHz@1.2v stable. To me 69c for 4.5GHz o/c is pretty good compared to my chip
