Are my i7 6700k temps normal for water cooling?

Hi, i just bought my first water cooling aio, the kraken x62, and I feel like my temps are high for water cooling. When having minimum apps open on desktop my cpu temps range from 28C - 32C and when i had air cooling my temps ranged from 33C - 37C which isnt that much of a difference from water cooling. I have an i7 6700k at stock clock at 1.2 volts. Fan are currently at 80%and pump rpm at 2298 and liquid temp at 33C. I feel like my temps are high especially for water cooling. I just set it up tonight which could that mean it needs time to settle or something?

  1. Normal temps, Sir...
  2. AIO - are not real liquid cooling and have no temp advantage over good air coolers.
    but your idle temps are totally fine.

    Your temps are fine. What really matters is how your temps run under load. I'm running an open loop system and the temperatures average anywhere from 50 C to 70 C under load depending on how taxing my task is. That being said, the 6700k (in my experience) runs a lot hotter than any previous CPUs I've ever had, and the temperatures can spike pretty high.

    Don't worry about it.

    How come i saw a screenshot of someones set up which was the same as mine and he was at like 21C?
  5. only if his room temperature is about 15-17C

    As another user said, his room temps must be super low, or his computer is right next to his air conditioner. Another thing that might affect your temperatures is correctly applying thermal paste, though that's a pretty trivial solution.

    Your temperatures really are perfectly fine. Don't worry about it.
