Corsair h60

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i recently upgraded my computer and bought this cooler. Im happy with the look of it and the way it sits in the case but having said that I think that my cpu is running a little hot? it idles at 38 degrees celcius and under load I have seen it go up to 65 degrees celcius. Is this normal temperatures?
The cpu is not overclocked and im running an asus rampage 3 formula.

I am also only using the single fan configuration blowing hot air out the rear of the case. The case has 3 intake fans at the top as well (120's). If these temperatures are not okay for the cooler can you please provide me on feed-back on some steps to take?

also i have a question about this motherboard and cooler unit, I have installed the pumps three pin power connector to opt_fan1 connector on the top left of the motherboard (just left of the cpu fan connector) is there any way I can control the power that the opt_fan1 connector uses?

CPU: Intel i7 960 - Bloomfield
Motherboard: Asus rampage 3 formula
Case: Corsair Obsidian 800d

Thank you
Ren

Those temps seem fine to me. What are you ambients?
For the second question i believe you can't control the power of the 3pin fan connector.

Hey guys, the temperature outside is 16.5 degrees celcius. Is this what you were referring to by ambient temp?

Ambient is the temperature around the pc, so the temp of the room that the computer is in.

I have the same board and I run at exactly 40c but I'm OCed. Maybe you seated the cpu wrong or have to much/too little thermal paste. Just my two cents...

Hey guys i think its just the curing time, I had a look at the seating of the cpu and tightened the screws down a bit more (they were a bit loose) now the temps seem to be around 36c.

Check some monitoring software (or the BIOS) and make sure the pump is running at 3900~4300 RPM.

Will do simpletech thanks for the idea mate. I read somewhere that the pump needs a full 12 volts but seeing as its connected to the fan connector I wasn't sure how I could make that work.. thanks again
