PC Trouble :(

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So really quick this is my setup:

MOBO : GIGABYTE G1.ASSASSIN2
CPU : Intel Core i7-3930K
RAM : CORSAIR Vengeance 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR3 2133
HDD : SAMSUNG 840 Series 250 GB SSD and Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM 3TB
PSU : CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W
COOLING: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Water Cooler with Corsair Air Series AF120 FOR PUSH/PULL Configuration
CASE : NZXT SWITCH 810

Last year I wanted to build an editing rig rather than buying a really expensive mac. I did some research and I decided to go with building my own PC which could have double the specs at the same price of a mac. It was my first build and I built my Pc for around 2500.

Although many factors were very interesting I am not satisfied with my rig. There are a couple problems I need to fix,

Firsty, I built a Push/Pull configuration on the top of my case as so:


However, I didn't even OC and my CPU temperature is at 90 degrees Celsius.


What could the reason for this be? Is it something about my airflow? I bought thermal paste, I should receive it in a couple days, I will reapply, is it something about that?

Secondly, the computer does not startup fast. When I power on the pc, it takes about ten seconds to reach the windows login screen. After I enter my password, the welcome screen stays on for about 30 seconds, then a black screen for another 30 seconds. Could this be normal? WIndows is installed on a ssd drive. I dont understand why it is this slow.

Thirdly, the overall PC performance is not satisfying. My Adobe premiere timeline freezes frequently. I have to render every 5 minutes so I can see just what I edited without even any effects. Could this be something about my GPU and Motherboard not being compatible. They are both GIGABYTE brand and were both the best when I bought them but what is causing this problem?

These are the major problems as of now. Any help would Greatly Be appreciated as I would like to find a solution before I start receiving video projects again. Thanks!

you did not list a video card in your specs at all, yet you mentioned it is the same brand as your motherboard. care to list what video card you have?
secondly as for the cooler, make sure the fans are all orientated in the same direction. and 90C sounds like you may have a faulty cooler to begin with. and being as how the h100i doesn't come with any plastic film over the cpu block i would think that's not a possibility. I have seen people forget to remove the plastic film and have horrible temps for obvious reasons.

Do you have another air cooler around to try on it?

EDIT: and on the other hand, i'm not sure how much i trust corsair link software. go and download realtemp from HERE to get cpu temps.

I would check and make sure that your CPU cooler is mounted and making contact correctly. Is this CPU overclocked at all because thats very high... make sure the pump on the CPU cooler is running also...

easiest way to make sure the pump is running is to disconnect the main power cables from the motherboard, remove the cooler from the cpu, connect the pump header directly to the power supply using a molex adapter, and then jumper the power supply so it will start the pump. listen for any noise and try to feel any vibrations while you hold the block/pump.

Oh my bad!
I have the GIGABYTE GTX 680

One of the pipes coming out from the CPU is really hot. How can I tell if the cooler is working or not? I'm 100% sure i took the plastic off. I dont have any other cooling methods

Install HWiNFO64 and check temps again. If its showing 90C at idle, then there's something wrong, like a dead pump or something, can you hear the pump running at all, are the fans spinning?

Nope, not overclocked didnt play with anything. Its looks fine, i screwed it on as tight as I can. I'll be reapplying thermal paste when I get it.

Ok, is the block secured properly to the motherboard? is there any wiggle at all? and by pipe do you mean tube? you said you have the h100i correct?

I am still leaning towards pump failure on this one.

DOwnloading right now. I have a lot of fans so I cant really tell from the noise, but one of the pipes coming out of the CPU is very hot and the other one cold. Could this mean anything?

Im pretty sure Its on tight. No wiggle or anything.

Yes it is the H100i, tube is what I meant don't really know this hardware language smile.gif

How could I find out if its th epump thats the problem?
