    Unhappy Over Heating Problem!!!

    I just built this machine (see sig line) and I am finding after 5 minutes of Grand Theft Auto IV, or 5 minutes of Call Of Duty Modern Warefare 4 my temperatures reach 85C according to my OCCT 4. program. Using OCCT, Power Supply Tab, at 65 seconds of TESTING, this system fails (goes over 85C).

    Not good in my opinion. It seems to me that the Corsair H60 is no better than the stock AMD CPU fan. After numerous Emails I got corsair to say they recommend that my water cooler fan blows In (toward the radiator), but that makes no difference. The front of the case has a 120mm fan. Back of case has the radiator with a 120mm fan. Side of case has two 120mm fans and I leav the side off about 1-2 inches for more air flow.

    Any suggestions? Shoud I try and modify my case to have the radiator outside of the case? Should I consider replacing the fluids in the radiator? Should I replace this cooling system with something else? I am open to any and all suggestions. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    right now Im running a H50 and have been for almost 2 years now. Ive found that you have to check the screw down bolts. Especially after the first install.

    A couple of days after my first install.. my temps went way high.. checked out the screws and two of them ver very loose.. tightened those puppies up and temps went back to where theyre suppose to be.

    so... Id start there

    Are you talking about the two bolts that hold the heat sink down on the CPU, or some other bolts?

    I would think that yes he meant those two bolts.

    I water-cooled for years and that was usually the only problem that came up when the temps went way up.

    Something is wrong with installation, put on stock heatsink fan and see what you get.
