Hi,
SE is a poor choice PE is best ek low end rad series.

If draining might as well get a flow meter and water temperature sensor they will pretty much answer any questions about flow and why temperatures are what they are.

What you are describing is typically indicative of poor contact. We have a seen a number of cases of this on the GPU with these blocks, but this is the first I have seen with a CPU.

Do you have an inline temp sensor? That would certainly help in diagnosing the issue (not to mention it is really a necessity for proper liquid cooling).

And as mentioned, the SE is a really poor rad choice. Between that and the aluminum blocks, you need to temper your expectations.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

I will try a reseat and see what happens. No inline temp sensor but maybe I can add one when I drain. But I get fine idle temps, wouldn’t a bad seat b evident then>?

Also my distro block has flow meter and it’s moving pretty fast

Do you have a an 8700k and a 2080 all being cooled by a single aluminum 360mm? How fast are you running your radiator fans?

Poor contact will typically show only slightly elevated idle temps, and will only become problematic under load.

Yes, single aluminum rad.

Fans are running around 1200 rpm and they are High static pressure fans

Hi,
As you've seen if all suggestions do little than more rad space will help a little more to dissipate the heat.

You should look into different rads
Hardware labs is usually the go to rad around here
Whether GTS or other anything would be better than SE series

That reservoir is cool looking but limits where rads can go
About all that is open for another rad is the back
If stuck with EK PE series minimum and x2 top and back.

I don't think you've been paying attention as he has an aluminum kit. The best option is to get rid of it on Ebay and put in copper components. Putting 1.5-2x the radiator space just to match thermal conductivity of copper is kind of ridiculous.


It's $500 worth of aluminum ($380 if you don't count the case) https://www.amazon.com/PowerSpec-PC-.../dp/B07RN9GVFJ

Hi,
Only items I read that were aluminum were the cpu and gpu blocks
SE series rad is copper

One can mix metals with the right liquid but it is risky but can be done obviously not with just distilled water.

Didn't see anything about buying a 500.us aluminum kit seeing the op got a nice bitspower I believe reservoir.
