OneFunGenesis Okay. The block should be tight enough that you have a fair bit of trouble wiggling to block around once it is on.

decapitator That might be right. The only other thing I thought of is if the block is tight enough on the cpu, like I should add another washer. Yeah I thought about going back to air but I got a new case that won't fit my old cooler.

OneFunGenesis it isnt really about re-seating the block. It is a question of is it flat.


Watch from 5:07 to 6:08. He also goes into lapping both the CPU and block after that. But I think some serious investigation needs to be done to determine your problem. You also seem to not be really into doing this investigation? I might suggest going back to air.

decapitator I reset it twice, I was thinking it was the pump being bad.

OneFunGenesis Wow. Just a 6600k? Well, there are a few suggestions because you should not have anywhere near those temps with that processor.

1) Air bubble trapped in CPU block
2) CPU heat spreader or CPU block are not perfectly flat/making good contact
3) CPU IHS TIM is bad < this is probably less likely

What are the fan speeds? 100%? The fans are 3pin and not PWM, correct?
6600k
The system has been up and running for at least a month now
I thought about air bubbles and have ran the system with the case in various positions to try and remove any bubbles.
Fan speeds are 40% untill over 50 degrees. I'm open to any other options on this.

decapitator I wanted more overclocking headroom and got less.

So I need 2 radiators to overclock my cpu only loop higher than my 50 dollar air cooler?

OneFunGenesis If you were in pursuit of lower temps then watercooling was indeed a waste for you. Water cooling is for those in search of greater headroom for overclocking or those building a quiet rig with the same temps as air. Fans spin slower and therefore quieter with the radiator as help to relieve heat. You also have more overclocking headroom because you can add more radiators and therefore dissipate more heat.

Also, the radiator you have boasts "12 high-density single waterway wave fin design" but is actually a low fin density radiator. I have the same one in 35mm thick. The low fin density might not be transferring heat away quick enough from your radiator water channels. I have that radiator as a front intake because tons of air can pass through it and then I have a high fin density (20+) on top to rush heat out of the system.

However, my idle temps are 22c on the CPU 28c on GPU1 and 30c on GPU2 with 600mm of radiator space....

decapitator I flipped all the fans so now I have 6 intake 120's 3 on rad 3 on front case and 1 rear exhaust 80mm. Temps when down by 1-2 degrees on core 1 and 2. Thats it.

So new stress test temps.
idle is 25-28 and max load was 66 60 60 57 @ 4.3.
Just a recap, on air I was at 64 66 67 69 @ 4.5
