While checking my waterblock to make sure it was even, I noticed that I could see the pins of my processor in the middle, but not on the sides. Is this bad? Also, I can only check for evenness of my water block on one axis. The back connectors and socket are in the way on the other axis. How do you guys check it? My load temp is 44C now.

that deffinatly doesn't sound right, i have 30c ambient temps and run at 51 load with stock heatsink (have tc-4 leaktesting in corner) so i think somthing is wrong. Try taking the wb off and putting the chip back in
