Hey all, I just picked up an MSI MAG Series Coreliquid 360R.
CPU Cooler - https://www.msi.com/Liquid-Cooling/MAG-CORELIQUID-360R

I used to have a Hyper 212 for 40$, I was told the i7-11700k runs really hot and needs a good cooling system. I picked this up from the store yesterday and I dont see a difference in my temps at all. I have no idea why. My idle temps go from 35-60c.

I will admit I was a pansy when it came to screwing in the block on the CPU because I didnt know how much I needed to scew it on, so I screwed it on until it was snug.

35c doesn't sound wrong, and the 60c is probably due to windows wanting to do something, causing core speed to momentarily ramp up, causing heat to go up.

Ah alright I am sorry for the post then. I was just afraid I did something wrong when I installed my liquid cooling since it was the first time Im using it.
