nabbun Posted December 24, 2013 Share Posted December 24, 2013 Hey guys, Not really new to building PCs or overclocking. However, this is my first stab at using water. I've overclocked my chip to 4.6 GHz on 1.25 volts. HWMonitor is telling me that I idle around 40 C and top out at 88C while Folding@Home. Ambient is around 70 F. There is plenty of air flowing through the rad and it's pretty warm. Reseating the block didn't help. I'm afraid I got a defective unit sent to me as brand new. The fins were bent out of the box like someone owned it for a while. I'm used to Corsair products coming out of box clean! Should I try anything else or submit a RMA request? Thanks in advance! Edit - I've replaced the chip's TIM with Noctua NT-H1 as well as the supplied grease on the water block. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
