hi everyone i just made my new pc well not the newest system but as close as i can afford and had some question about my h100i and the temps on my cpu

general information on my pc
Case: thermal take chaser
motherboard: asus p8z68v
cpu: i5 2500k
cooling: H100i Push/Pull config
power supply: 800w
graphics card: XFX gt 520

so far i have the cpu oc to 4.5 at core voltiage at 1.105v and the temps with 10% or less loads are around 30-35 average and when i did prime 95 with 100% load with core volitage at 1.320v i had an average of 55-59 which was the max temps i was wondering how is this compared to others and if i can oc a little more or if i should stay where am at

******one more thing with the corsair link i was changing the speeds of the fans to max and to quiet but it had no affect on the temps at all i really didnt see it go up when the rpms where at 700 or go down when they where at 2500****** why was that

Max temps are a subject of debate, I've found; some say to stay under 65C, others say it's fine up to 98C (Tj max). I try to keep mine under 80C, personally. You can definitely push higher; you could probably break 5Ghz easily with that cooler. By the way, with offset voltage and SpeedStep, the idle temperatures and voltages will always be more or less the same, load is the only one that really matters.

I can't really help you with Corsair Link, as I use an Antec cooler. However, have you monitored the liquid temps? I found that mine had a break-in period where the liquid didn't take heat from the CPU as well as it does now, and the fan speed doesn't matter if the liquid is cool.

thanks for the quick reply
well i just looked on the screen shots and show that the the liquid temps where at 32 when the cpu temps where hitting its max at 59

im sorry but i dont understand by what u mean when you said
" I found that mine had a break-in period where the liquid didn't take heat from the CPU as well as it does now"
what is the break in period and how do i know when i am close to it

I don't know; at first the liquid temp in my cooler never went above ~35C, no matter the CPU temp, but now it goes into the 40s. I have no idea what caused it, to be honest. Either way, you don't have any issue with temperatures, so I wouldn't worry about it; just don't be surprised if your liquid temps go up a bit and your CPU temps go down a bit in the future.
