hey guys thanx for the reply. i fixed the problem before i even got to read your suggestions. i removed the H80 water cooler and installed the Intel Thermal Solution RTS2011AC Processor cooler with some thermal paste and it worked. i had tried everything you guys suggested with the H80 and for some reason it wasnt working so to be sure it was the problem i just went out and bought the intel cooler and it worked. for now i will leave it since it works for what i am doing and i am not overclocking. so far the is not overheating or anything like that so it works and it a cheap solution.will return the H80 since for some reason it wont keep my cpu cool.
