Do I have to reapply Thermal Paste?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, I built this PC about a year ago and I have the H100.

I've been getting a lot higher temps recently when I tried to retest my overclock.

1.328V @ Max 96 degrees Celsius on IBT.

whereas before when I first got my PC I had a stable overclock of 1.28V @ Max only 81 degrees Celsius on IBT.

I'm running my overclock i7 3770k @ 4.6Ghz.

Reseating your Heatsink and reapplying fresh Thermal Interface can't hurt. You will probably see a few degrees from that. Also, if you have been running this for a year have you cleaned the Radiator? I bet it is clogged with dust if you have not and that will greatly hinder it's cooling power.
