Hi all,

Last week i finished my new build, these are the parts i used.

Case: Silverstone TJ-07
MB: MSI P67-GD65 (3)
CPU: I7 2600K

Watercooling:

XSPC res/pump 750L pm
XSPC RAD 480 and 240 with push fans
XSPC RASA waterblock

The problem i have is that my temps are higher then my last build on air.

I overclocked my cpy to 4.8 GHZ @ 1.350v in bios
When i run prime 95 or intel burntest (high) the temps are;

core 0 min 27 max 58
core 1 min 24 max64
core 2 min 25 max 67
core 3 min 25 max 63

The strange thing is that CPU-Z is showing 1.424v at max load and True temp 1.3711v at max load ???

Are these normal temps for this build?? I was hoping for much lower temps.

Could it be that my thermal paste is not applied correctly?? I used the line method.

Thanks for the help,

Tammo

cpu-z or HWmonitor will show more accurate Vcore reading.
You may have a bad mount? try a reseat of the cold plate

Actually..those temps aren't too awful bad for the OC/voltage you have..
Wait..what's your ambient temps?
You could disable hyper-threading and get lower temps

welcome to the forum.
drop a bb of paste on the CPU spreader and using a finger spread it atop the spreader.
this will also let you see how your application of paste faired. im thinking very thin in spots.
your ambient is up or down 20°?
i think you mean to say your ambient is 20° +/-2°

the core speed isnt really relevient more so the voltage and temp of the overclock.
the speed is generalized because of what voltages are needed to make the speed.
the best is to set the vcore to a desired level of comfort (temp control and load)
and then move the multi to max the vcore can support. jacking the multi and moving
the vcore to suit is bass-akwards. more peeps spend goobs of money to fix minimal
speed gains. like the difference of 4.8 to 4.7. usually one can notice maybe a 1/2.
like 5.2 to 4.7.. or 4.8 to 4.3. so big numbers are for bench racing and not practical
in usage.

hmm i was just checking my loop, and i saw some air bubbles.
I thought they were all gone, but no.
How much do air bubbles affect the temprature? and whats the best way to remove them?
I already did some tilting of the case for 15 minutes.

UPDATE:

I did a reseat, and tried to get all air out of the loop.

5 GHZ @ 1.520v

Prime95 small FFT run it for 1 hour.

MAX 61 / 66 / 68 / 65 degrees

1.52v?!?!?
that processor wont be good if you keep that up...
you know 1.45v is pretty much the limit and @ 24/7 the
chip life is shortened. bonzai runs for giggles.
