Ok well I finaly got my water cooling kit done, turned the system on, went into bios to see what the temps were, and pow, the fricken CPU is idleing @ 72C, this is with all 4 fans running at mid speed and AS5 on the block and CPU. Im not sure what the deal is but I have no intention on running my system at those temps. Anyways I took the clock back to stock speed, loaded windows and checked the temps in speedfan, the CPU idle was at 66c and then dropped to 56-57c, I did a 1m superpi shot and within 5 seconds the temps had jumped from 57c to 72c. Not to sure what the problem is but Im gonna lean towards the pump or tubing, I have no bubbles, and no kinks in the line, but I do have about 3 foot from the rad to the cpu and then about 2 foot to the res. My pump is a 370gph pump with a 6' head, I can see the water flowing pretty good. All the line is pretty much level cept the part going into the water block. Maybe I didnt put enough AS5 on or something but its not my first time applying this. Any quick thoughts on what the problem would be?
