Are you sure the block is tight on the chip? Even a poorly installed water cooling system with would never let a CPU hit 86C. Are you sure the pump is plugged in properly and working at full power?

You're idles should be around 45 with a 4.0GHz overclock. Loads around 60.

Also, just so you know, stacking fans, like the ones feeding your GTX 480, actually decreases airflow unless the blades have been together.

So we must hand it over to our tame PC tweaker. Some say he sticky tapes a block of uranium to his dinner before eating it and that he sucks moisture out of ducks. All we know is, he's called Hooks.

Is it reaching over 85C in CPU intensive games?

See what temps you get in LinX.

See if the TIM got applied properly between the CPU and the block.

RMA broke my 580 SLI. Now I have a 7970 and a GTX 580 gathering dust, looking for a buyer.

Try resetting it with new tim application and let us know how your temps look.

Unless the temp sensor's are screwed it has to be poor contact between block and cpu.

My i7 960 at 4.ghz on air with 1.35 volt's does'nt hit those temp's with a fairly high ambient.

It may possibly be the kink in the tubing near the top of the rad completely cutting off any sort of flow...

Remount the block with new thermal interface material (thermal paste) application. But it looks like you've found your problem /thumbup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbup:' />.
