  1. I checked the rpm of my pump on the cpu_fan header and the maximum speed it is running at is 2825 rpm. I have set this at full speed in bios. When I get a chance I will try and reseat the pump back onto the cpu. I have noticed that after it reaches 83 deg C and I stop the load test it only takes about twenty seconds for the temps to drop back down to about 33 deg c.
  2. Yes I am overclocked to 4.4ghz. The ambient room temperature is 28 deg C. You can do a lot with the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility including clock speeds and voltage. I have left my pump connected to the cpu_fan header but have adjusted the bios settings to have it run at full speed. I have moved my radiator fans to my system fan headers and will see how that goes. EDIT.. so I have checked the temps and idle is still sitting around 33 deg C and under load with 100% cpu utilization gets to at least 83 deg C. So really nothing has changed with the temps. So I am at a bit of a loss as to what to do next. You would think that there would be a standard set by Coolermaster as to where the pump and radiator fans should be connected to the motherboard.
  3. I have the Nepton 240M cooler connected to my gigbyte z170x gaming 3 motherboard with an i7 6700k cpu. I just wanted to know if my cable connection is correct. I have the pump connected to the cpu_fan header and the radiator fans connected to the cpu_opt header. I have checked the temps and at idle it sits at 32 degrees celsius and under load gets up to 83 degrees celsius. I am using the Intel extreme tuning utility to put the cpu under load. I would have thought that it should run cooler than that when under load. So is my cable connections ok or should they be setup differently.
