Help: H70 / H100i / cost-benefit

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Dear community,

I need help: I have a Corsair H-70 cooling an i7 3770k on Asus MOBO P8Z77V-Deluxe, with 2x8GB 1333MHz Corsair Vengeance. In idle temperatures the core temps are around 45 º C, as in OC 4.4 GHz temps raise up to 83-88 ° C (Prime95 for 10 min).

It is known that the 3770k operates in bands of higher temperatures, around 20 ° C higher compared to Sandy Brigde (2600K, eg), instead.

My goal is to keep the core temperatures up to a maximum of 70 º C in OC of 4.6 GHz.

Questions:

- The replacement of H70 by a H100i would be enough for a drop of 18 º C in average of the core temperatures in this particular situation?

- A change in H70 solve? Currently it operates with a Cooler Master 120mm fan in pull. Maybe replace the fans, thermal paste?

- What is the best option in terms of cost benefit?

Thank you in advance collaboration.

What's your Vcore for 4.4ghz? Your most likely not going to see 70c with a h100i,unless you have a golden chip. definately not with h70. Heres results @stock with h100 in push/pull with my vcore lowered as much as possible......

For 4,4 GHz it needs a VCore at 1,275V. I tried 4,6 GHz @ 1,395V, but temps extreme raised to 93-95ºC.
