hello, i have an amd phenom 2 970 oc'd to 4.2 ghz on 1.5v, yeah i know the voltage is high but thats the only stable vcore i can get it at for 4.2ghz. anyways, i bought an h80 2 days ago and ive just ran prime95, i am getting about 57C max temp after 4 hours of prime95.. also, are high idle temps normal for closed loop water coolers? with the same cpu and clock speed, my cm hyper 212 plus with 2 fans cooled it to 60C on prime95 and idle temps were much lower than what the H80 gives me. could it be that the waterblock mount is not secure?

 

if this helps anyone i have the corsair fans as intake, i had to unscrew my top fan because i couldnt fit the radiator + 2 fans.

You will really see the real potential of our Hydro series on a system that is under load 100% which you can see in your set up.

 

I would try to flip the fans though, and see if you get better results on idle.
