Is it running very hot then, what are your temps?

Watercooling is not that easy (I know myself)
If it's running hot, if possible better try to optimize airflow in your case first.

Yep - what is it running at load ?

Anything below 90c is 'fine'.

50c on 3% load isn't too bad I would have thought.

As MK2 said 50°C at idle (3% load is close enough to not matter) is OK, and as smarteyeball anything below 90°C is fine.

Next question is what are the temps on it when running a game? Just leave GPUZ running in the background with "Continue refreshing...: checked, then after running a game mouse over the graph at the highest point to see what it got up to.

P.S. Hopefully you did a little better wiring job than this guy with the same model emachine after adding a new PSU and a GTS 250,

[Solved] would this be a good start for a gaming pc (eMachines ET1331G-03W) - CPUs - CPU-Components
