I got a T-Bird 1.2 axia-and set it up for water cooling. I used the following. An amaze2 block, a coolcube w/ a 120mm-69cfm fan, an eletrical junction box(for a reservior) and a Eheim 1048. I used all 3/8 inner dia hose, distilled water-with water wetter, I filled the system and let it run under water to insure that no air was in the system. I used artic silver between the block and cpu. The block is mounted on springs-which are run down pretty tight. My system is at 1500/1.85volts-and my temps are around 44to45 degrees. Ideas?
Make sure that waterblock is sitting exactly flat on the CPU. If it's off just a tiny little bit the temps will rise. Dont tighten it down too much though cause you can break the socket. (that happend to me) it doesnt take very much pressure at all to break one.
