Not normal, if you haven't already done so, I'd try reseating and reapplying the thermal paste on the cooler. My ambient is 30 degrees and I can still hit about 1.55V before temperatures top 63-65 with a h100i, which should be about the same performance as ur cooler.

Well. It's probably at it's thermal threshold. I realize the liquid is only in the 40s but that limits the amount of heat it can pull away. My only other suggestion would be airflow through the case, with 2 video cards and that CPU you'll need a lot of fresh air. When I was using my case with a TT aio that was 2x120 I had over 300 CFM moving through the case, I also had 2x GTX 580s in it as well. That allowed me to ru my 8350 at 4.64 with 1.476v and kept the CPU just below 50c

With your case, youll need a thin fan, like an 80 X 15 on the back. A fan on the back can really help socket temps.

Also, are you overclocking by multiplier only ? With combo multiplier and fsb overclock, you can generally get higher mhz with less volts.

I think you need more fresh air coming in or you might be getting a buildup from the GFX cards.
Yes, more air flow from bottom / bottom right. I think that fan blowing in at the top left may be messing up overall air flow. (cool air coming in thats immediately exhausted by the two fans on the radiator, leaving hot air at the bottom) I would move that one to the lower right bottom and have nothing in its place.

yes i overclock in multiplier only.. is this means that my cooler can only handle that temp?

i have a total of 5 fans as an intake 2 side panel fans 2 front fans and 1 back fan i put it as intake also. the 1 on the back and 1 on the front is running at 2000rpm same as the radiator fans..

Ya you could be right with that rear fan. , I had 3 in the front as intake one was the stocl on the lianli but the other two were these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835242015. I had my rad in the top with 4 of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835146009 I tried the corsair and was a bit disappointed with them TBH. The NZXTs were the same price but worked twice as well in my opinion. and a rear exhaust. I ended up putting a hole in the side cause my cards were getting hot still so I put a hole near the back of the case and inbetween the cards to exhaust air out and that was the topper. I could run [email protected] after that with no worries about heat, did it for 10 days straight in the CC last year.
In your case I would flip that rear fan to exhaust and also maybe the bottom side panel fan to help get some of the heat away from the cards. Mostly you'll have to experiment a bit to find what works best in your case. Took me a couple weeks and a few bucks to get mine where I wanted it.

One trick I use to figure out the air flow in my case is to use a thin strip of paper, about 3/16" wide 4-6" long, taped to a thin stick. Then I move it around the case and observe which way the paper flops, heh.

Yes cuz of my 2 fan running the same rpm as my 2 radiator fans I allways have a + pressure. But stil my core temp is crap. :*

The software that comes with Asus is bad. What you see is not the core temps, but the socket.
Use Core Temp or HW Monitor to read the correct temps.

Yes I use core temps for my core temp reading as seen on the picture in the OP.
