High Temps For i7

Hi all,

I have an i7 that is producing some strangely high temps for the kit that is cooling it.

I am running an EK Supreme plexi with 1/2" XPSC tubing, 120mm Black ice and Swiftech 240mm and a ddc with XPSC res.

oh, and i'm using distilled water with silver coil.

My temps are idling at 41-43oC. It's Clocked to 4.2GHz Stable.

I think this is unusually high for the kit that is cooling it.

Any help appreciated!

Thanks ppl!

Have you tried reseating the Waterblock? Could be a contact issue... Could try reapplying the TIM..

I reseated my ek wb and the temps are still too high. I set my bios to defaults so no oc back to 2.6GHz.

The temps are still @ 45oC on core1 44oC on Core2 42 on Core3 and 41oC on Core4. All outputted from OCCT.

I also cleaned my wb internally but this had no effect.

I'm thinking of getting a new wb but i'm not sure anymore what wb would have the greatest effect on my temps. Any suggestions welcome

I really want my 4.2GHz Back :'(

Just wondering if its a hot chip / dodgy thermo sensor. Alot of the OEMs that can be brough from not reputable sellers are ones that didnt make the greade for proper retail.
