don't run pure distilled, you'll kick yourself in 3-6 months when your blocks look 100 years old. Skip the kill coil as well, and ALL OTHER MANUFACTURERS COOLANTS! The proof is in the pudding, Mayhem's just signed deals to start filling AIOs, and many companies now just buy & rebrand Mick's stuff BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST. Hands down, no longer and discussion about it. It's mayhems, or its garbage.

invest in mayhem's biocide & inhibitor drops. Cheap, and last forever. It'l also keep all your parts looking brand new, forever, if properly used.


as to advise to change your flow pattern, don't listen. You've gotta tiny loop for that pump, flow isn't the issue. flow doesn't really change or "slow down" like some people envision (discussions of serial gpus/parallel gpus aside).

like we already discussed, if 1GPM, or north, you're fine on flow.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.

The distilled is temporary at moment, as I'm currently flushing it out getting to the bottom of my high temps.

Good ideas everyone, I'll attempt everyone's diagnosis, and even throw my AIO on temporarily to see if temps change.

I'd definitely run thru Mango's list of goods. Everything else is a repeat, or nonsense.

You said you tried spinning the CPU. Have you tried the same on the EK CPU block?

wouldn't it only spin if it has a singular high spot? if you look @ his TIM print, it looks like a valley.

what I mean is, if your IHS happens to be high on the sides, and low in the middle, it's not gonna spin, while the opposite would spin. Low on the sides, high in the middle.
