Hello, I recently put together an intel core I7 Z68 system with an h70 liquid cooler im getting Idle temps of 40 and on prime 95 at 100% i get 99c, in the bios the pump is running at 100% all the time, its in a push/ pull configuration, I have tried to reseat it I have also removed and reapplied thermal paste it has made no difference so what i tried was to try the stock cooler that also is running idle at 40c can someone helpp please ??
