Another "H60 running hot" thread

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hate to be the one to do it, but I'm really at a loss. I've had the h60 for quite some time, and it's always run very hot. I've never been able to bring temps down. I've reseated it at least 4x, to no avail. My previous Hyper 212 (now in a different system,) didn't have trouble quite like this.

I'm not sure what temps I'm really pulling, since windows8 is wonky with core temp programs, but EITHER ONE isn't good:

I've tried flicking the tubing, shaking the radiator, changing my fan layout... I just am at a loss now. No idea what to do other than cut my losses and grab an air cooler. Surely that can't be the end, though. /:

I've peeked around in the BIOS, and as far as I can tell there is nothing throttling the pump speed. The tubes are a bit warm to the touch, as is the actual pump. I should add this is all on an i5 3570k, so it naturally runs on the warm side, but I'm getting 55-70 idle temps (depending on if I go by realtemp or HWmonitor,) and 80-100 at load?

Help?

What temperature do you get when running prime95 blend test for 30 minutes on stock speeds?
What fan do you use on the radiator?
When you had the hyper 212. did you run the exact same CPU?
Can you take an image of your PC so I can review your thermal and airflow setup?
Thank you.

RealTemp 3.00 was released over 4 years ago before your CPU or Windows 8 existed.

http://www.techpowerup.com/84118/realtemp-3-00-released.html

Update to the latest RealTemp version and it will show you the same sky high 105C temperatures that CPUID Hardware Monitor is showing you. When the RealTemp - Thermal Status area shows HOT, that confirms that thermal throttling is fully active and the LOG word shows that all of your cores have logged some throttling since you booted up.

How much thermal paste are you using and how are you applying it? Don't be too cheap. Pull it off and have a look at how the thermal paste coverage looks. Most people here like the to use a pea sized or grain of rice size amount of paste. I prefer using a small line of paste directly over top of where the cores are located which is the method that Arctic Silver recommends.

If there are no paste issues then I would go buy another cheap 212 EVO. They are quiet and work great considering their cost.
