post #11 of 16
Make Sure that you Pump isnt Dying and Is still ok and Receiving Enough Power, Also try Replacing your Coolant or adding more as you are right temps of 38c isnt Right. Just to be sure are you Sure that your Water block is Fully Secured and properly seated as that could be why mate..Good luck with this one.

Is the pump on the floor or up high?

A picture would be the best and then we can see how everything is laid out

Have you Tried Tightening it down a little more Just to see if your Temp changes..This could be worth doing just to Eliminate this from what could be other problems.

Not too long ago one our WCers found dog hair in the WB. Not a likely solution but it was the cure for his high temps after trying everything else he opened up the block and cleaned out the dog hair.

Some WBs do not like any kind of particulate matter--flush the system and take the WB apart and inspect it for any signs of biological contamination or corrosion. Refill with nothing but distilled--no additive-- and run the system--check temps--add aprox 10% by volume of any auto antifreeze to prevent bio buildup and corrosion and that's it.

If you still have high temps check the WB for flat--lap if needed--check to make sure the WB is not being held off by a capacitor or something on the mobo. that has been an issue recently.

Post back--good luck
