first thing -- the high temps - is what i see - and chill software does not read any Sound level in dbs -- liquid temps read 38C idle -
i did a RMA on the cooler - after speaking to support - i will be removing the 920 tomorrow and when i do - i will check the screws to see if they are loose or tight -- i believe i hand tighten them and were tight - now if i try to further tighten them with a screw drivers - its possible there is more to tighten or not -
i will check that tomorrow before i remove it - since i already RMA the cooler - i will return this one and try the new one -
now - my system been having problems - screen goes black and shuts done - reboots - and when i go to shut down windows - it dosnt shut down - it reboots again - i have to use the power button to shut it down -
not sure what that is - but the black screen and shut down - thats something - it can also be that the cooler is not working correctly or i didnt tighten down enough to make it work correctly - either way now - its running hot - maybe thats the reason for the black screen and shut down on its own
i have decided since i am taking everything apart again - i will change out everything and replace with
the Intel i7 - new board - new chip - new memory and now the new cooler - start over again
its very possible this is all a cooler issue - making it run hot and shut down on its own -
does your cooler chill software show the sound level in db's ? and does it run Dead quiet ?
hmmm I think you have a seriously flawed system mate - if the PC behaves like that. The cooler is the last thing I would worry about there...
Either you have OC'ed and it is screwed, either your CPU is gone, or your cooler is bust - or all of them...lol

What he means is that having 12c is not possible for case temps - unless it is super cold in your room.
Try testing at full load, and see how temps are with the fans the other way round.
I suggest the fans to be pushing OUT of your case, simply because of what I said before, and the heat becoming very hot.
Basically I had them mistakenly put inward facing, and I thought it was fine at first, after my pc being on for 5hrs, with little to no load, I opened the case to check for something, and it was stupidly hot inside, that I opened the case for it to cool down. Although bearing in mind that was without a proper air flow in my case at the time.
