My System Specs

Default Water Temps seem...high.



See sig for specs. I did have a GTX in the loop, but the card turned out to be bad (ram pooched according to OCCT), so the GT got water cooled instead.

Loop is: Res-Pump-Rad-CPU-GPU
Cooling gear is a GTZ, MCP60rev2, and a 320 rad. IC7 Thermal compound

Idle speeds are 38/38/26/33 across the cores. And yes, core 3 has always been ~10c cooler then the other three, even when I had this on air. I tried giving the GTZ a wiggle, wondering if it wasn't seating...How hard can I crank these screws down? Or is it maybe I have it -too- tight?

My GPU is 43 idle, 55 load. I suspect that is high as well?

Thanks for the help.

Crank your GTZ down until it hits the stops. There are shoulders on the pins so you can not overtighten the block.

And what enaberif is alluding to is that you should use coretemp or realtemp for your temperature readings.
