Hi,
I'm new to the hackintosh and I've read that sometimes when using a liquid cooler like the H60, the pump is installed incorrectly or there's not enough thermal paste and the cooler doesn't function optimally, raising CPU temperatures. I have a H60 installed on my i7 3770k and attached is a screenshot of HWMonitor temps (CPU Cores 34-35 Celcius) at idle (ambient 22 Celcius). I was wondering if anybody can verify that the temperatures I'm getting are normal for a properly installed h60 cooled CPU.

I don't know if this provides another clue, but when i run Geekbench 3, CPU core temps generally max at about 55 celcius (ambient 38 Celcius). The second attachment is HWMonitor screenshot with Geekbench 3 running.

Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
