guys any ideas on this block just installed it but trying hard to get a set up.
should i have a lower flow rate or higher , as the water never seems to get hot to the touch on the pipes as id expect with one core hitting 50 to 55 .

i would have agreed but it seems that it is runing a few c cooler with the flow rate lower.
i think i have the cpu cooled a bit over kill anyway im running a 360 rad just for it ha

you're using a D5 pump? the higher flowrate *might* cause higher temps due to a higher heat dump from the pump if you turn it up. but if flowrate would be the only variable, more would be better. i assume it just comes at the price of heat dump.

im using a waterchill extreme pump with built in resevior. it was a kit. i wasnt going to go for it but come on 99 euro for a full kit.
ok so bumped the speed back up to 3.4g and no change in temp from 3.2 umm cant complain about that and i only have 2 fans on the rad running will hook the other one up later. need to extent and solder some wires first.

i have to admit my chip has been a pain one core is like 10 higher than the others might have to lap it. so all of them are below 47c bar one at 58c. always been like this. no matter what i have tried i wonder if its miss calculated temp sensor.

did the same thing with my vedetta 2 heatsink. its just the chip no amount of reseating does anything.

well so far im fairly happy gone from running the cpu at 3.2 up to 3.5 with preety much no increase in max temps. something that i could not do on my vendetta2. im going o aim for around the 3.8 finishing mark.
