I always prefer a long Prime95 blend of 10+ hours for a stable OC...

Some say its overkill, but most of the old school OC'rs tend to agree that its the best way to ensure stability....

Usually for changes I will run IBT for 50 passes, then play some games. If no crashes then its pretty damn close and I wait til I am at work or sleeping to let Prime do its thing...

Tho only thing for me is I have 50 pass IBT stable, and some gaming, yet errored in Prime Blend after 5 - 6 hours... A small .010v bump in voltage got it to 12 hours...

Yeah I was doing IBT 30 pass to say its stable enough to move on to the next set of settings, but right now i'm almost 4 hours prime stable and it's still running.. Having to keep the window open though.. I really don't know why my temperatures are so horrible..

Your CPU runs hot, and that kit isnt top of the line water cooling in terms of performance..

Its a great kit, but water can only do so much, it is still dependent on ambient temps. The real performance of water cooling comes from the flow rate and the ability to move the water around...
High flow pumps, high flow blocks and large diameter tubing are the essentials...

Trust me, I did alot of research before building mine. It took me about 2 months to accumulate all the parts and was around 175 - 180 when all said and done... I got my block, res & tubing here on the F/S section, and got the pump, rad and fittings from an online site...

Kits are good for an easy first time build, and are easy on the wallet. But they wont perform like a mid range or high end loop...

I've actually hear that the Rasa CPU block is one of the best right now I think it's in like 3rd place or something.. And the kit in general has had lots of great reviews.. I'm in the Rasa 750 club and those people are all getting temps well lower than mine.. One guy was on a overclocked 6 core getting ~40C max..

I know the pump isn't the best but I couldnt afford to buy a custom kit..

Rasa ..... i think i bought mine before anyone, ordered my block and was on waiting list to get it.. so ordered before it was released. didnt get the kit though, just the blocks. works great too and on all sockets

Maybe you should try reseatting it then. Put a dab of TIM in the center, put the block on and tighten it down, dont check to see if it spreads, just go with it..

Your cpu may just have a sloppy solder under the IHS, that would cause poor heat transfer from the core to the IHS and make temps higher..

I think I've finally hit 3.686GHz stable with my new method of overclocking.

bclk 175
multi 21
vcore 1.176v
vtt around 1.156v, I'd have to go into the BIOS to check it
memory at 1400 9-9-9-24 (I'll fix those later)
memory volt 1.534v

I'm so happy.
Validation

And 10h of P95 stable. I'm going to shoot for higher tomorrow.

I am going to try that.. I may try and add some fans to the rad in like a push pull type configuration.. hopefully things will get better somehow

I just finished reseating it and I did check to see if it spread or not.. It didn't spread well at all even after tightening it down..

I spread it out with my finger to get it nice and even. I don't know what it's problem is though.. After almost 10 minutes on IBT i'm at 78C max? this is with 1.28v load and 198x21

Any suggestions on what may fix it? I'm really getting aggravated with it!

spread it with your finger? i hope you had a baggie on your finger 1st..... ?
i apply tim, slip finger into plastic baggie and spread tim that way, or use an old credit card to spread. if im doing sub zero cooling i just use pea size in middle of chip and go with it.
