    If you've got the paste done right, and double checked the mounting (and installed it by diagonal sides first), the other area you can go wrong with H60 installs is if you connect to a CPU FAN header on the board and motherboard fan control is enabled, then the pump will operate too slowly.

    Make sure Silent Fan Profiles / Q-FAN for that header are set to Disabled or Full Speed. If set to Auto or Silent, then the pump doesn't get enough power to function at its best.

    Make sure as well the pump is actually functioning. Usually hear it gurgle and buzz a little on startup, or should be able to feel it from touching the block casing.
