    Real/coretemp software show the same temps as BIOS, idle at ~50.

    here is the voltage settings, unmodified, from easytune.

    Maybe the H60 does not work so well, do you have the stock fun to test with?

    It's my understanding that the Corsair Hydo series coolers with a single radiator fan work "best" with the H60 radiator fan outside the case, blowing air arcross the radiator INTO the computer case. This is a "push" setup, i.e. the fan is pushing air through the cooling fins. If you have too many case fans blowing air into the case, the H60 radiator fan will be fighting the other intake fans and the radiator will not be as efficient in getting rid of the coolant's heat. I think that the optimal setup for your case fans is to have a slightly negative pressure setup where the total CFM of the exhaust case fans will be somewhat higher than the total CFM of the intake case fans.

    Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    re: Thermal Paste

    You want to use the least amount that barely covers the top of the cpu with a very, very thin skim coating. Too much TIM is less efficent in transferring heat from the cpu to the heatsink. Check out BenchMarkReviews.com, TIM application methods for some photos and TIM instructions. AS5 does have a curing time of 100 - 200 hours, with many heating/cooling cyles for maximum effectiveness. I think that there is at most a 2 - 3 degree improvement after the AS5 has fully cured. Check out the AS5 website for their suggested method/direction of applying a short, thin line of TIM for your cpu. Hint: look in the Intel section

    Hope this helps.

    So I went out and picked up a stock i7 fan since they forgot to give me my i7 box and fan, and after running Dungeon Siege 3 (which has more or less been my stress tester) for half hour, my temps hovered right around 60. Now comparing this to the H60 I was using, I'm going to assume that this is an improvement and the H60 was faulty since it continuously spiked up to 70 within 5 minutes getting close to 80. Going to take it back and maybe go with an H70, since I don't think they had any other H60 in stock.

    You could have a faulty unit,you should be seeing good temps with water,just return it and say you've tried everything but temps are too high and that the stick Intel cooler performed better

    Thanks a bunch for your time and assistance, it's been a big help narrowing down the problem. Not sure I would have figured it out otherwise.
    On a side note, after gaming for ~1 hour with the stock fan, temps stayed around 60 and immediately dropped back down to 50 when I was done. The H60 never actually dropped the temp, it just hovered high. Returning it now!

    Just wanna ask,is the fan and pump motor just one four pin connection to mb CPU fan header or are their two? One for the fan and one for the pump? You would see high temps if the pump wasn't circulating the water
