GPU and CPU temps back to normal.
Moral of the story, ClC are more versatile and therefor work better with a larger range of setups. Air coolers are overrated.
How is that even possible. R5 do not have poor airflow. Something was wrong in your setup.
Had D14 in R5 on a 4790k OC to 4.4GHz with temps below 55c under stress.
