New H105, are these results expected?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
First time post, so if this is the wrong place or poorly formatted I apologize in advance.

I recently upgraded from a CM hyper 212 evo+ air cooler to a corsair H105. On the new system the idle temps are about 34, while playing a game or something the temps are <=55, but during any stress test (prime95, intelburntest, etc.) i hit my TJmax at 105 degrees(and obv kill the test ASAP, though not sure why my cpu didn't turn itself off as soon as it hit that mark). Is this normal?

I hadn't stress tested on my air system in quite a while, and when I did my room was about 20C cooler (winter vs summer. My room has pretty bad air flow from the AC in the living room) so i don't have a great comparison between the two, but are these numbers normal for my specs when the room ambient temp is about 32 degrees C?

My radiator and two exhaust fans are at the top of the case (HAF 932 adv), with another exhaust fan in the back (for pressure) and intake fans in the front and side.

CPU: i5-3570k @ 4.5ghz, hovers around 1.2v at max load
cooler: Corsair H105
mobo: ASUS Sabertooth Z77
GPU: GTX 670 @ 1189 mhz and 3110 mhz memory
case: CM HAF 932 adv

If your CPU is reaching 105 degrees with the H105 when stress testing, something is wrong.

Did you remove the plastic on the block?

Have you made sure it's sitting properly?

Is the pump getting power?

Even with a room temp of 32 C, you should not hit 105 degrees.

Also, how can there be such a big difference when playing games to stress testing, what games are you playing?

I redid the paste once, and it made no difference. I'm pretty sure it's sitting properly, though I'm not 100% sure I would know how to test it aside from the fact that under normal use the CPU temps seem normal.

The games I've played on it so far include wow (though wow doesn't take much even at max settings), a few others that don't take ANY resources to run, as well as skyrim. I'm currently going through origin updates (bleugh) to run BF4 and see what temps I get during that. So far the only game that got to 55 was skyrim.

And yes, I've removed the plastic off the heatsink smile.gif I may be dumb but im not stupid.

EDIT:
In BF4 at max settings in 1920x1080 resolution the game played at around 65C, with peaks at 70C. still 30 short of what i'm hitting in stress tests.

What fans are u using? Are they maxed out when running benchmarks and games? What is the pump running at? Is the pump connected to the PWM connector on the motherboard?
