Intel Core i7 3770K and Corsair H100 running too hot? - Page 4

Great news! I believe that the problems with heat have been completely fixed, and I didn't even need to RMA the card!

Take a look at these temps for my CPU and GPU. This is idle:



And this is after Prime95 has been running for awhile:




So as you can see, the GPU hit 56C once during Prime95, but then it consistently sat around the 34C mark. The CPU during Prime95 was around the temps that I was getting at idle before when problems were happening.

What do you guys think? I'm thinking that my problems are over. thumb.gif

What did you do to fix it? You must have been completely blocking the fan or something...

Here's what I did:

- Remove the GPU
- Enable, and disable the Intel HD4000
- Put the GPU back, and reinstall drivers

Then I just watched my temps drop down to about 34C or so. but the temps would rise again immediately after a reboot. Re-installing the drivers fixed this issue again. So basically, I would have to re-install the drivers every reboot in order to keep the temps down.. Finally, I just restored my original image of Windows 7 with all of the Windows updates and drivers installed (from about a month ago). Now my temps are what you see if the last two pictures, and reboots don't affect the temps anymore.

I'm so glad that this is all finally over, and I can enjoy my wonderful (and expensive..) machine. biggrin.gif

Ive recently been having temps high from my h100 (8month old)& 1055t ( aprx 3 year old). 42C - 63C+. Searched around and result say therrmal paste needs re-applying or have the cpu de-lidded. Learned a little about thermal paste application and i just tried tightening the screws to see if re applying paste could be avoided.
after a night of being switched off ( room temp). I tightend the already firm screws and Didnt turn it on until an hour after tightening, so the paste could move if possible. 6 mins of occt stress test got 30C -57C

I have the same case (and same setup, just a H100i) along with a open aired 480, so it gets hot. It just isn't a very good flowing case but you can try things to improve it a bit. A few things that I did with my 800D:

- Front bay intake fan. I believe it's a Scythe Bay front fan setup that takes up three slots but allows for a 120mm fan to bring in fresh air into the case.

- Good airflow rear fan

- Extra fan above the PSU area. I don't recall if the stock fan is on the bottom or just above it, but you can fit two fans there to help bring in extra air in.

- I have a free standing fan next to the HDD shroud that is pointing directly at the 480.

If you are getting high idle temps with an Nvidia card, another thing you can try is in Nvidia control panel, make sure that you've got power management set to "Adaptive" and not "Prefer Maximum Performance." This will allow your GPU to downclock when idle.

Also, perform a clean installation of the latest drivers unchecking Nvidia HD Audio, and uncheck the 3D options if you don't use them.

Also if you are using speakers for audio, and not HDMI from your card, disable the HDMI audio source in the Nvidia control panel.

This resolved the issue for me later down the line when the problem came up again. My idle temps for the GPU were hanging around 49-55C, but now they are comfy around 33-36C. When gaming, GPU temps never rise above 79C.
