Hi, I have a 7640x overclocked at 5.1 Ghz so it's running pretty hot. Too cool it i recently bought a H100i AIO waterloop. I noticed that the watertemperatures (from the corsair link app) is about 40 degrees under load, while the package is around 70-75. Could that huge difference be because the pre-applied thermal compound from the AIO isn't covering the entire chip? The 7640x is quite big and I saw that the thermal compound wouldn't completely cover the chip.
