H70 Temporature Flucuations on Full load

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
First off I have an H70 with push pull configuration pulling air out of the case, with plenty of good airflow. The fans attached to the H70 are rated at 2000RPM, and have an insane CFM. (Cant recall the exact integer) The H70 is cooling a I7-950 currently at stock. When I run a benchmark it jumps up to 85C+, and tops at about 95C. It fluctuates temperature on a 100% load 85C-95C. That is uncomfortable for be due to H70 being a pretty decent cooler. Also, it means I cannot overclock . frown.gif

I know the fans are not the problem, but what is then...

Too much thermal paste?
Defective H70?




Other notes:
It idles @ 35C on start up and after benchmarking for 10 minutes.
Both fans are at 2000RPM 24/7
The pump is functional on the H70
Room temperature is a comfortable 68F






Also ignore typos in the subject text. English isn't my first language.

These H70s can sometimes get airlocks in them. Try turning your case upside down and running it for a brief period to see if you can dislodge the blockage. If upside down doesn't work try other orientations.

If this still doesn't fix the issue then try remounting it. I doubt TOO MUCH thermal paste would be a problem, unless you have used 30 litres of it or something lol. I reckon if you can't get it working then it is probably defective. These coolers are meant to be plug and play and so if it doesn't just work then there is most likely something wrong with it.
