I have ran a a aquagate for over a year and never really has any issues. i noticed recently that my BIOS is saying I am getting CPU temps of 80C!!

Is there possibly something wrong with the system? I have had to refill the unit once already. Could it be getting low again? Can I possibly damage my system running at this temp?

Well I tried a software monitoring tool and its telling me 69C....

Which one is correct? Even so, they both seem to be way too hot.

are u just cooling the cpu with it ? u may want to check the fluid level refill or change it out . the only way to be for sure is to touch the block and see if it is indeed hot to the touch . also clean the rad and fan . during this part u may wanna check to make sure ur volts r all up to par .so basically while u checkin the aquagate clean it and then clean the rest of the system .

Only cooling the CPU. Everything is clean on my PC inside and out. I am out of coolant since my last refill 6 months ago. It shouldnt be low again should it?

I think Im about to say screw it and throw a Hyper 6+....

Will it harm anything to keep running it like this until I can get a resolution?

Aquagate = issues... Problems from day one.

if it is indeed running as hot as it is yes it can .... do you still have the stock hsf for it if so try running with it and see if theres a diffrence . if no difference then its not ur auqagate its somthing else . also is ur video card , Nb running hotter then usual ?

Yes its def hitting 80....especially under load. That is at speed 2 btw crap. No stock HSF either on hand. I guess Im out of a PC until I can get a HSF.

Can I try and fill this thing with tap water until I can get a HSF? I could care less if its breaks it down... Its def got fluid the color to it is still blue.

This stinks!

Back at 19C!
