Corsair H80i + i7 4770K = High Temp (HELP)

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello redface.gif

Yesterday I got my new computer and everything was fine. After Installed everything including windows, I ran Prime95 to test the processor along with the motherboard, so every thing was normal I guess between 40s to 60s except the processor.

It was about 27 C and it got high and kept getting high all the time for the whole test time (20 minutes)
Last Temp I screen shot it was 80 C, and as soon as I stopped Prime95, it got back to 28 - 30C

I honestly have no idea what is going on. I have 2 fans are installed on the H80 and both are intake fans (rare Case)

I have a total of 9 fans on my Case, 7 fans are in-take fans, 4 located in the front + one at the base next to the power supply + 2 with H80
And for taking out heat I only have 2 fans at the top.


So, could you guys help me with this
I use CPUID Hardware + Core Temp to watch the Temps

Is this Normal or should I do something, because I read some reviews and articles about Haswell and most of them were saying Haswell has higher Temps than previous generations, but I want to listen to you guys. redface.gif

This Computer means to me everything, I kept saving money for it for about 7 months now. blushsmiley.gif

I don't want to damage it.
Please help me.

Thank you very much

Might help if your fill out your system specs, but i assume it was due to haswell adaptive voltage giving your CPU a bit too much voltage.

What did you use for CPU paste??
If you have CPUZ, then open it up and have it next to Prime95 and run the test, while the test is going look at the CPU Vcore and see what it hits..

Okay here is CPUZ results

Ideal: 0.713V -- 0.708V
Load: 1.131V -- 1.142V

The numbers changes frequently in both situations so i gave you ranges.

Well the Vcore is just fine..
Not sure why the CPU would be that hot, Maybe the H80i's pump is not working at full power?
Do you have the stock cooler that came with the i7? And do you have any other CPU paste?

They both take air from outside to inside.. I've done it with an old H60 too
Is this wrong?
