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

Don't spread it with your finger. That causes air pockets.

What cooler are you using? Check the fans.
What are your ambient temps?
Have you dusted your case recently?
Is your case in an area with restricted airflow (such as a cabinet)?

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.

Why do I need a bag on my finger? Is there something wrong with using your finger when it's bare?

EDIT: If it's only going to take off a degree or two I don't think it will matter, My temps are still at 85C..

The grease/oil on your fingers can be added to the TIM, which may cause slightly higher temps.

It's water Cooling with the rasa kit.
Ambients are 72-74F
case was bought about a month ago
It's sitting under my desk. But the front and back are open and I have it slid to one side so that air can get in the top..


Again will the oil cause that much of a difference? like 1-2C maybe 3C?

Oh. And your temps are that high? Damn.

How many rads do you have? What fans for them?

Oil could cause a temp increase like that.

I only have one radiator. It's a XSPC RS240 and it's using the stock fans...

That might be why. Is the rad dusty at all?
Get some better fans on it, that'll help. Also, where do you have it positioned in your case?

No the radiator I got about 2 weeks ago. It's not dusty.
It's positioned at the top sucking cold air in.
That's the only place I could mount it inside the case.. If all else fails I may try mounting it outside the case.. but that ruins the whole self contained thing...

I just don't get why my temps are so high.. It's like they dropped maybe 3C from my air cooler!!??

If you can, put it towards the bottom, and keep it as intake. If not, make it exhaust on the top.

I lowered my overclock from 4.1667 to 4.011 and it lowered the temps a good 10C.. And I may move the radiator later but right now I don't have enough tube..

My thinking in making it intake at the top was that it would suck in cool air instead of sucking in warm air from the graphics card and hard drives..

Thought's on that? I have a phantom case if you feel like recommending air flow options?
