i5 750 @ 3.6 GHz Corsair H70 70 Degrees Celsius high?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As the title states, im wondering if 70 degrees Celsius is high for the Corsair H70 after 30mins of Prime 95 with my CPU @ 3.6Ghz?

Ive noticed that the max stays at about 50 degrees @ 10mins then 60 degrees @ 20mins then 70 degrees. It seems to keep on creeping up slowly. My idle temps is 34 degrees on the hottest core.

Does that mean that the air cooling in my case isnt good enough or have i not installed the H70 properly?

In my case ive got an intake at the front, intake on the bottom, 2x exhaust at the top and a push pull configuration on the H70. The fans are coolermaster 120mm blue led 2000rpm.

that does seem high to me, what voltage are you using? I would've though most chips would manage 3.6GHz on stock volts, might want to try dropping that a bit if you have it higher.

Other than that, can you improve airflow to the rad? since it increases gradually it sounds more like a pump or rad issue.

Also, is the block the highest part of the loop? I have heard people get issues with air sitting on the water block, try moving the rad to a position above the block if this is the case.
