CPU too hot! Maximum cooling though.

My CPU is cooled by a Corsair H55 liquid cooler, I've got a Corsair Dominator memory-mounted fan, 2 200 mm intake fans, 2 200 mm exhaust fans, but my CPU still gets over 50 degrees Celsius with >50% load . The liquid cooler was installed last month. What gives?

    I'm using Core Temp to check my CPU temperatures, does that make a difference?
  3. Sorry to say but the H55 isn't a really affective water cooler. I hear it cools a little worse than a low end air cooler. So if your overclocked then you can expect those high temps. If you not overclocked then I'd say that maybe they didn't apply the thermal paste right. Maybe used too much or too little.

    I'm OCed at 3.9 GHz on an i7 3770k, as it's my first OC. The H55 came with pre-applied thermal paste.
