3930k High Temps With H100 in Push/Pull

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi there I'm currently running my 3930k at 4.5ghz with 1.32v and my temps with my H100 in push/pull are hitting 77c max when running IBT. Ambient temperature is 23c so I'm just wondering if my H100 is defective or are these normal temps. After reading about the H100 I thought it could handle at least 1.5V but It's looking to be not even close to that. Thanks for any help in advance.

That CPU is a six core so expect higher than normal temps.

Like the other poster said make sure you are not using stock heat paste and make sure you applied it properly (very small amount, rice sized ball in middle of the cpu)

About the fans though, for best performance they should be pulling air IN to the case from outside. Also what fans are you using?

no suprise there, thats pretty much what you'd expect from sbe. to go beyond 4.5ghz pretty much requires a real water loop

I am using the stock thermal paste I heard it was very good. And the h100 is setup as exhaust in haf x and fans are cougar cf-v12hp pwm fans http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835553002

Thanks

Replacing the stock TIM with AS5 or MX4 or whatever your preferred CPU gunk will make a huge difference.
Those fans are advertised as 'silent ', in my experience you should replace them with some higher performance fans that move more air.
Eg.
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185054
Or something comparable you should be able to drop your temps by 4-8 degrees.
hope that helps!

You are sadly misinformed about the stock TIM on the H100, FYI. The TIM they are using preapplied on the waterblock of the H80 and H100 is a paste made specifically for Corsair by Dow Corning using a new formula that is superior in every way to AS5.

You are right though. It will make a huge difference in temps, going up.

AS5 is not even close to being considered the best anymore. Add to that it's 200 hour cure time and you have a paste that won't even work to it's full potential for 9 whole days of 24/7 operation. Real top quality paste right there, rolleyes.gif.



OP, 77c at 4.5 is in no way dangerous. You're good up until like 85c when running stress programs. Give Prime 95 a shot using Blend.

blackbalt you're right, the stock TIM is good stuff, AS5 just doesn't cut it.

Not sure what you're trying to show me there but if you think I'm going to sift through 7 pages of garbage to find a few posts praising AS5 you're sadly mistaken.

If you were trying to actually agree with me without being sarcastic then I'm sorry for what I wrote there^.

Truth of the matter is that being A) a conductive paste, and B) one that requires extensive heat cycling over a 200 hour long period, AS5 just doesn't seem like it's as good as it once was. With the amount of pastes out there that can be applied and forgotten it's sadly losing it's place.

And to be honest. There is only a few degrees of difference between even the worst paste and something as life changing as Indigo Xtreme, but saying AS5 will make a huge difference is sadly not true. At least not with the newer pastes that Corsair is using.

Merry Christmas, or happy holidays if you don't celebrate Christmas.
