H100i issues

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
So I first used an H80 cooler on my few year old case, that worked good for about a year, but now with a new processor, 3930k, I bought an H100i to get better cooling and a faster clock. But the H100i acts strange. For starters, I check the rad temp using their link program and its temperature stays down very low, regardless of the fan speed? I went back to the stock fans that came with the H100i, and the rad temp hovers around 30-40c. Sounds great. Until I look at my actual cpu core temp, which shoots up to 70-80. This is with a low overclock of only 4ghz.

So why is this happening? Why is the radiator staying cool even when I set the fan speed to quiet, and the cpu doesn't get any cooler when the fans are going full blast in performance mode? I've tried first the thermal compound that came with the cooler, and now have tried twice using Noctua thermal compound. Same problem. CPU heats up, rad stays cool, I'm so confused. Is the H100i just not that good?

Is the pump speed on max? Can you set it higher?

I can't figure out how to change the pump speed. Only the fan speed.

The link software is showing the pump operating at full, over 2200 rpm

Hmm does seem kinda weird. I have h100 so i don't have that software (link), but i can tell you my i do just hit 70c on my cpu at 4ghz.. So depending on your vcore, it might just be normal (h100i not so great....who-let-rip-smiley.png )
Thats with a quick 10 run pass of IBT on my 3770k.

Thanks. Guess I am going to have to live with high temps and not a big overclock until I can get another better water cooler.

I have a buddy on a Rampage IV Formula / 3820 and he has a high weird temp issue. His cpu temp is always reported as being high. Idles in the 50s with no overclock. He has taken the cooler off and reseated... etc. Done all the usual checks.

I've seen this on four or five Asus boards. Seems to be very uncommon but it exists. I would check everything then RMA the mobo. But be sure to double check everything first.
