So a couple of days ago I built my first ever custom watercooling loop and after booting up plus some testing I found my 6700K was still reaching insanely high temps for the condition it was running in. Watercooling parts I used: EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 Res+Pump EK-Supremacy EVO Block Alphacool 360 Rad The CPU was clocked at 4.5ghz at 1.32 vcore and it would go as high as 85 celcius when being ran in LinX with custom watercooling :frown: I thought something has to be wrong with the TIM Intel put in my chip. Having delidded a 3770K before using the vice + hammer method I decided to dig out my 6700K and give it a good whacking. As I got it out of the MB I noticed one corner of the CPU was slightly bent, oh well, anyway I proceeded with the project. Damn was it a lot more harder to snap the IHS off the Skylake chip but it did eventually come off just fine. After applying Coollaboratory Liquid Pro and putting everything back together the CPU reaches max 52 celcius :eek3: gg Intel. Anyway, I'm glad this dropped my temps as low as this - overclocking to the skies calls!
