    Great going Paul, now you got them thermals down, how about getting them clocks up
    Thanks Cliff. Lol I think I will just see how she goes for a while. Not sure about this Corsair RMA now either. I was quite shocked to get a 28C drop after gaming and the new temps seem reasonable enough to suggest the cooler isn't actually failing.

    Hi,
    Get Steve to compare temps and y'all use the same multipliers
    Otherwise yeah just monitor the pump and you can always reopen the rma if you need too I did :)

    Thanks Doug :). It was a little scary doing it but everything went according to plan and it was much easier than I thought in the end.

    I don't blame you bud. You know me though, I like taking risks lol. This was a very calculated risk though not like the old days of delidding where you would slice it off with a razor. Couple of turns of the alan key and the top was off with no hassle at all.

    Great Job Paul

    Just a note about the RMA to corsair, My pump showed it was working great but the temps still went up (and back to normal at times). Think it was air in the system as when I tapped the hot pipe the temps went back down but will climb again soon after. Had to do that a few time a day until I decided to RMA my AIO.
