My WC setup must not be up to the challenge. I reset the WB and same temps. 4.200Ghz on a vcore of 1.45V. Is this what I should expect???<br><br>
60 degree load temps!!! 35 at idle...

What program are you using to look at the temps?

Are you saying you changed waterblocks on the CPU?

Everest ultimate edition. Speedfan oddly enough does not read real-time temps for my cpu with this particular board...<br><br>
No change in wb, just reseated after seeing temps, and still the same...

Wow I dont know what kind of temp's a Intel should be getting but that seems high...<br><br>
That hydrcool only has 1/4 inch tube doesn't it? That could be a lot of your problem...You might be better off with a high end air cooler then that...<br><br>
Has your AS5 or whatever TIM your are using had a couple of days to cure..If not that could be your problem.....<br>
Here's a link to a discussion of Intel WC temp's hope it helps some...<a href="http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/127321-cpu-temps-ok.html" target="_blank">cpu temps ok? - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net</a>

correct on the hose size, but my temps were much better even when I had cured as5 with the same system. The only difference is the board and the vcore. Guess that is the problem. My old air set-up was a silvertone nt06... Worse with air on the temps too...except for now. I know the bosch pump in my stand alone wc unit is a porsche fuel pump, rated at like 80 gph or something, think I should upgrade for more flow, better velocity with smaller diameter tubing?

Thats a good question, but I dont know if you would be able to force anymore water through the 1/4 inch tube...And if you used step-up barbs to 3/8 it would still be bottlenecked at the pump and WB's.....You know at the Corsair web-site I saw a guide to change over the hydro-cool to 3/8 tube, it didn't seem expensive or complicated, but I dont really recall exactly how to do it.....Why dont you have a look around their forum and see if you can find it.....<a href="http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?forumid=128" target="_blank">Official Corsair Memory Support Forum - The House of Help Support Forums</a>

OK I thought you said your tube was 1/4 inch....You better back off on your V-core till you figure out whats going on...You might want to try and re-seat the WB, I know you already have but it wouldn't hurt to try again....Did you have to change how you mounted the block on this mobo? I have no idea how Intel's boards are set up, but that may have something to do with it...You might want to get another cpu WB with 1/2 inch fitting, if you dont already...

sorry for the confusion, the tubes that goin to wb are 1/4, but in the stand-alone housoiing the tubes to the pump are 1/2"... Pretty odd way of doing things, but oh well. An excuse to spend more money on a nicer set-up...

hows your rad mounted? besides any number of reasons, one to check is how well you radiator is working.<br><br>
For example mines on the back of my pc, and I have to 108cfm fans pushing the case exhaust air through the rad. So its not the coolest of air if you get what i mean.<br><br>
since water cooled machines have more than one part and none of us have the same setup its hard to find the culprit. Best way is to use deductive reasoning and narrow the problem down through tests. sorry if im stating the obvious..
