EK cpu block

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys in the pic you can see my water level on my ek cpu block.
Is that normal.
Shouldnt the block be right full of water it like only half way full.

It should be completely full. You still have some air in your system. With the computer off, wire up the pump so only it turns on and then rock your tower back and forth and tip it to the front and the back. This will help move the air bubbles out of your blocks and into the res.

got i have no luck.

It sounds like you applied more than enough heatsink pressure on to the CPU. I didn't screw mine in THAT tightly and it's performing superbly for my setup.

Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't Intel CPUs (including Sandy Bridge) to run a bit hotter than AMD CPUs?
From your profile, you're pumping 1.43V through it for 5.0GHz. It sounds like a normal temperature to me. Besides, I've noticed that my idle temperature in the BIOS is higher than what I read from various programs in Windows. Just make sure you don't get near your CPU's architectural limit for temperature (sorry, I don't know what this is but it should be easy to find via Google). If you're worried, you can try lowering the CPU voltage but that might mean going down to 4.9GHz (if you feel capable of doing such a thing! ).

Did you watch the air make it's way to the res or fill line? Could have just migrated somewhere else.
