i7 3770k at 4.5Ghz / H100i Cooling Issue

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I've recently done some research and fact finding on the H100i and the i7 3770k. Now, I've recently been monitoring my temps from my CPU when playing BF4 and found that my temps seem to be reaching about 75-84C and comparing them with other peoples temperatures who are running the same cooling, CPU and overclock this doesn't seem right. I am running turbo from the BIOS and set the turbo to 45 for each core and set the voltage to 1.300.

I'm wondering whether I'm doing something stupid/wrong within the setup of the overclock or is my H100i possibly faulty or not working correctly. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

could be poorly seated. Also make sure that the pump is not being throttled in the BIOS. On my H60, I always had to make sure that the fan connector that the pump was connected to had Qfan control disabled, so it runs at 100% all the time.

Hello and welcome to OCN! biggrin.gif

Yeah your temps do seem on the warm side. How's the contact with the CPU? I know it's a pain, but it might be worth checking - the H80i and H100i are known to have some issues making good contact depending on the mobo used (some are a bit thicker than others).

Hi, thanks for the welcomes. I've checked the seating of the h100i yesterday and I guess it seemed ok. I removed the old thermal paste and put some new stuff on it. How would I go about checking if the pump is being throttled? Where about in the BIOS would it show?

As long as the RPM lead is connected to the CPU Fan header on the motherboard, you can check the BIOS (usually under "Hardware Monitor" or something similar). Or you can use HWmonitor and note the "CPU" Fan RPM. IIRC, normal pump speed should be around 2100-2200 RPM.

You recall correctly, pump should be somewhere around 2000rpm

Okay, I downloaded HWmonitor and it states that my pump RPM speed is shows as follows:



I'm guessing the Fan0 is the RPM of the H100i?

what header is it plugged into on the motherboard?

It's installed onto the CPU fan header and the power is connected to the sata power PSU cable. I've just checked.

Looks like the pump is good then. I would check the seating again.

The fan or the pump is plugged into the header?
