GTX H110i not cooling properly?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Okay so I recently upgraded from a 6600k to a 6700k. I order a new GTX H110i to go along with the 6700k as my wife was getting the 6600k and my older GTX H110i. Once everything got here I double checked the AIO cooler for any shipping or manufacturing damage and it seemed fine. But upon installing it, I'm noticing temps idling around 30c and load (Prime95) 67c. Now when I had my 6600k with my other GTX H110i I was getting roughly 24c idle and 48c load ( gaming, not prime 95).

Something else peculiar I noticed was at full load my radiator fans would not spin up to their full speed, even when temps were hitting 67c. I manually pushed them to max to see if that would help my temps but nothing. Temps were still solidly at 67c ( bouncing between 66c and 68c ).

Now what I wondering is, is this normal? Did I maybe hit some heat saturation point with my AIO cooler that I didn't with the 6600k. Or is something just not right with these temps, (too little or too much thermal paste, improperly seated, defective AIO cooler ect?)

Some things to note, I never stressed tested my 6600k with Prime 95, so I don't have those temps to reference with, but I did do quite a bit of gaming on it and as far as I can remember I have never hit over 50C.
Corsair link, shows the pump running around 2500 RPM and both the pump and fans are set to performance mode.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

I've had some problems with Corsair AIO's not making great contact with the chip. Maybe pull the cooler off the chip and check the TIM to see if it looks like you have some uneven pressure.

The temps you're reporting seems absolutely normal, you're comparing a gaming load on a 6600k with a prime95 load on a 6700k.

My 6600k @ 4.7 GHz hits mid 80's under IBT very high load, but only hits low 60's during gaming. (he's at 1.488v load under custom water cooling).

edit : remember, not all chips are the same, you can have two 6700k's with two same coolers, same setups, same loads hitting much different temperatures.

the 6700k runs a good 10C+ hotter than the 6600k at load. Hyper threading adds heat.

id say its normal im running a H110i GTX on a 5930k and idle temps dont matter imo you said and i quote " I'm noticing temps idling around 30c and load (Prime95) 67c. Now when I had my 6600k with my other GTX H110i I was getting roughly 24c idle and 48c load ( gaming, not prime 95). "

30c idle and 67c during prime which adds heat clearly no temps from you while gaming on the 6700k? and also you said on you're 6600k you were getting 24c idle and 48c gaming not using prime im pretty sure an i7 pumps out a touch more heat than an i5

just for observations

my 5930k on a H110i GTX overclocked to 4.5 @ 1.26v idles at around 35-40c and during prime it jumps up alot more around 78-85c and during aida which i use mainly my temps dont exceed 70c and during gaming i get an average temp of 65c

That's exactly what I was wondering, I never went with a high end chip before( 6700k is high end to me tongue.gif ), all my CPUs have been mid tier (i5s, dual cores ect) so I never experienced temps so high before. Now my other question is, why would my radiator fans running a whole 1000 RPM faster not make a dent in my temps. it can go from 40% to 100% and still not a single drop in temperatures. Would that be just as much heat as the GTX H110i can handle? (fully heat saturated?)

Also, would I experience a nice drop in temperatures going with a full custom water cooling loop? And if so, what can I expect to see in temperatures roughly? I was going to upgrade down the road to a nice hardline custom loop but I'm still in the return window for my GTX H110i so I speed up that upgrade window if I can expect to see a nice change in temps. Thanks again

I'd try reseating the CPU cooler with better TIM.

If you're using Prime95 with AVX instructions, then 67°C sounds about right. If you're using an older version of Prime without AVX, then 67°C sounds a bit high (especially for stock clocks). Also, keep in mind that the 6700k will run warmer at stock compared to the 6600k.

I have a 280mm Corsair cooler too (different model but the cooling should be about the same).. On my 6600k at 1.25v, I run in the low 70's on AVX Prime95 and about 60ish on older versions of Prime.

In my experience pushing the fans from quiet to max (2000 rpm) only helps temps by a couple degrees. In other words, that's normal.

I see, okay thanks. Now just one last thing, is this the norm for the 6700k or will I see much better cooling performance by going with a custom water cooling loop?

If I go the custom loop route, I'm hoping for about 55C on prime95, is that feasible or am I overestimating custom loops ability to cool?
I'm just a bit frustrated because at 67c I feels like I have no head room to overclock. Thanks again and Rep+. smile.gif

Depends on which version of Prime95 you're talking about. Which version do you use? If it is one of the newer versions like 28.9, you will never see 55C at full load on an overclocked chip. Maybe if you delidded the chip and ran a custom loop. Maybe. P95 that uses AVX instructions just pushes the chips too hard to see those kinds of temps in all but the most extreme cooling (ln2 or Peltier, etc.)

As I said, I have my 6600k at 4.5Ghz and about 1.25v. That's not a high voltage and yet I run in the mid 70's on Prime95 (AVX). On tests like AIDA I run in the high 50's. I have the H115i which is exactly the same cooler as the H110i GTX (they changed the model name this year).
