Figured I'd crosspost this here as I might get more responses.

Running Prime95 for not even 10 min and I hit 90C easy. AIDA64 is more forgiving, but as others have said, if your not testing your cpu for all use cases, whats the point?

I'm using a h100i v2 for cooling right now and I was wondering, how much better does it get for a AIO cooler? I've thought about going to a 280mm radiator model with 4 fans for push pull, but would the results even be appreciable?(~10C or more) Please tell me I don't need some huge suitcase of radiators or one of these next to my PC to improve my cooling.

Trying to run a 6900k overclocked to 4.4Ghz 24/7 under any load. Thoughts?

It could be the thermal paste and the way you mounted the pump, I had a similar issue with my GPU before, cleaned off the stock paste, applied a new layer and made sure to tighten the block evenly - voila, purrs in the 40s under load now.

This reminds me that my CPU temps are starting to rise lately, I'm starting to think that the TIM that comes with these AIOs is not that good.

Hi guys , new here to the corsair hydro club. So I have the corsair h60i since 2014, back then I used a bitfenix phenom m case and it was a real mess when it came to cable management , or the hoses were bent ( there's actually a small kink in one of the hoses ) but I don't know how to fix it back.

Anyways this year decided to make new changes. Like to a new case , s340 and bought some news fans, used a new thermal paste ( deepcool z5 ). Before I replaced the paste I got around 40c up , idle and basic browsing etc.

Now I have like 28 - 32 c. I also cleaned the radiator with water and replaced the h60i fan with a sp 120 quiet edition. The nxzt fans were also replaced with quiet AF corsair fans.


So my setup is like > front , SP fan then radiator.

Back , 1 AF fan

Top , another AF fan.

I use a 4790k processor and I don't have a videocard yet. Is there a way to tweak this setup? I saw some setups with another AF fan below the h60i in the front, not sure how they did that or was that a 140mm fan ( s340 club ).

If I replace the h60i with a more powerul corsair cooler, what would be the estimated temps be like ? 20 - 25 ? Any ideas ? Thanks

The TIM that comes with Corsair AIO coolers is Dow Corning and has been tested to be as good as Shin Etsu TIM. So the TIM itself is not an issue.
In fact, with temps in the 90s, if the cooler was reseated properly and was functioning properly, you could probably use toothpaste and get a lower temp. I don't know any TIMs that are so bad that the TIM by itself would make a 40 degree difference.

I used ARCTIC MX-4 for the thermal paste. I'm gonna try and re-seat it tonight and report back with temps.

What is the best way to use the fans on the h100i??
Exhuast or pulling air in??

That depends on a few things.

If your video card exhausts into your case then you might want the water cooler pulling cool air into your case instead of drawing hot video card air through your water cooler.

On the other hand, if your video card exhausts air out the back of your case, you can let your water cooler push air from inside the case outward. This has a small added advantage of not drawing as much dust into the rad, especially if you have a dust filter on your case where your main cool air intake is located.

One last thing. Intake from outside the case will make the CPU run a few degrees cooler but increase the temp on your video card, chipset and hard drives. Exhausting from inside the case through the rad will make your CPU run a few degrees warmer but allow video card, chipset and hard drive to run a little cooler.

I re-seated the cooler, still getting insane temps. I even backed off my overclock, and I still top 85C running OCCT.


I think my cooler isn't doing it's job to the best of it's ability. I've noticed Corsair Link reports my pump running at 2800-3000 rmp but my radiator fans running at only 780 rpm? I have the fan configured in CL to run at a fixed 100% speed. Corsairs website reports these fans are capable of up to 2500 rpm. Whats going on here?

Guys , I just repositioned the h60i to the back of the case again, with a top AF fan, plus 1 fan in the front. Noticed like a 2 degrees increase in temp ?
