H80 + i7 3930K = heat issues? - Page 2

@Dustin1: I'm sorry. Being the idiot that I am, I couldn't figure out how to fill out my Sig Rig as you had requested. I tried but just couldn't figure it out.. Would have wanted a drop down thing at the bottom of my post like you guys, but I don't know how to navigate around the site or manage my own profile yet.

It looks like you used the rigbuilder already, all you need to do now is click your username in the upper right, scroll down to signature, click edit, and select your computer from the drop down.

Same problem but mine is running at 61c on full load.
I have the h80 in a push pull and am using artic silver 5.
Ive built many pc's .

given that thats @ stock thats very little OC headroom. H80 or any of the all-in-one liquid kits dont count as water cooling imo. they make more noise, cost more and cool slightly less then the best air coolers. Whats worse is that by investing $40 extra you can get a dramatic drop in sustained load temp by getting real water cooling.

Hey. I have the same problem as you did and I cant figure this out either. I've reseated it a bunch of times and my temps skyrocket to 82c in Prime95. What method did you use to apply the thermal paste? I know this processor is bigger than usual so I wonder if you used more or the same as a normal application. Some say an 'X' formation or just a line down the middle works. How did you apply it to get those temps?

@ninbri64: I did a line down the middle. Check your BIOS settings, as well. I'm using an Asus P9X79 Pro on my system and I've found that enabling EPU helps to cool things down even further. I haven't been seeing any performance drops doing so.

Sorry I couldn't reply earlier. I've been up to my neck in work throughout the holidays. Haven't had time to log onto the site.

@masskilla: I'm a total noob, but 61°C doesn't sound bad at all for me. Better than mine, for sure. Is that overclocked?

a h80 should handle stock speeds no problem since its pretty much on par with intel brand "watercool" loop... however it wont leave you much OCing headroom. For comparison a $5 cheaper PH-TC14PE would keep it around 10C cooler under load and respond better to increased heat load from OCing

Yeah i agree that the new phanteks cooler is the new king of the block. I have seen review where it knocks the NH-D14 off its throne. Don't look too bad either. thumb.gif
