I mean I reinstalled the pump/block 4 times wink.gif

I can't remember. I removed the software but I can always get a reading later on. What am I looking for with the water temps?
Thank you.

Just to speculate you had problem with overheating motherboard, maybe this is the source of all your problems. (it may be and may be not i am speculating, and there is no proof that your motherboard can cause CPU overheating)

Either way you will RMA your board as i see in the other thread, test the OC and cooling again when your new board arrive.

If it is too high, then it isnt moving enough water and its just heating it and not moving around much, sign of a faulty pump

I will run a test today at 3.8Ghz and 1.2vcore for 30 minutes. I will then report my water temperature to you.
Thank you.

which sp120s are you using? quiet or performance? sp120 quiets dont move as much air against a rad as the perf do.

I have normal sp120 fans. I ran the following:
3.8ghz, Fans in push, pull, medium speeds, rad outside of case, ambient 20c, vcore 1.3.
Full temp on blend test hit 72 max with average of 67 to 68c on hottest core. I will get a water temperature reading later.

I also felt the water tubes and they were far from warm.

Have you tried changing the thermal paste? I had the h100 with corsair paste and my CPU was 75-80 degrees with 25cfm fans and with the noctua nt-h1 my temps dropped down to around 65 degrees, this was with a stock i7 2600k

And I think you have an rather high vcore.. ATM I'm running my 2600k @ 4.7 ghz with 1.24 vcore, try fixing your vcore so it don't stand on auto in the bios thumb.gif

I have set my vcore to 1.3 to help replicate overclocking conditions. I will be using 1.4v @ 4.5Ghz but I don't think this cooler is doing the job.
Is my H100i temp fine?
Also my pump is as 2130rpm. Is that the correct speed?
My testing is done with the corsair h100i on open bench.
I tried changing the TIM and it added 1c overall. The TIM used on Hydro 100i is very expensive anyway.
btw, during high ambient, is it best to have the h100i as intake or to blow air out of the case?
