[Please Help] Is my water cooler working fine?

Sorry guys Im new to OC and water cooling.
I recently bought corsair h110i v2 AIO but feel skeptical about the performance.
I was expecting water cooling can further reduce the temp by 10-15 degree.
However compare to my air cooler, the water cooler can only do well in idle condition but not in full load condition.

My build is AMD 1950X, aorus x399 gaming7, corsair h110i v2
[email protected]: 32C (10C lower than air cooler)
[email protected]: 64C (2-4C lower than air cooler)

For more detail such as water pump, coolant temp pls refer to the attached photo
Under OC 4GHz, I actually stop prime95 after a few second therefore 7x C is not the real result


I observe that the water coolant hv huge temp gap with my CPU under stress condition, does it mean my water cooler is not working well?

I have double check the thermal paste and screw it tight to the CPU.

Please help!

Thanks so much

I'm surprised it handles Threadripper at all, to be honest. Does the base of the H110i even cover the entire IHS of Threadripper?

AIOs aren't gonna outperform a good air cooler anyway ... not sure where you got the "10-15c better" idea from. High end air coolers usually beat AIOs by a few degrees with less noise.

It is important that the base plate of the cooler completely cover the heat spreader of the CPU. The Corsair doesn't, so it cannot apply its full cooling potential.

And AIO coolers generally only perform as well as the good air coolers, sometimes slightly better and sometimes slightly worse. The difference won't be anywhere near 10-15C. A good air cooler that completely covered the heat spreader of the Threadripper CPU would outperform that Corsair.

The 10-15C difference under load would only be seen with real (expensive) liquid cooling. An AIO doesn't qualify.

Guys thanks for all the reply.
I made a typo, should be H100i v2.
So disappointed as it is listed from the AMD website and can support TR
https://www.amd.com/en/thermal-solutions-threadripper

Yes I do know the cold plate wont completely cover the CPU.
Only enermax one does but so many people complain it will die after one year so at the end I choose corsair.
My air cooler wont completely cover the CPU as well but can do a good job therefore I though this AIO maybe the same.

My biggest misconception is I though AIO can perform better than air cooling.

Just curious why people still choose AIO?
As the water pump is more noisy compare to air cooling under stress condition, do they just want the RGB ?

Well, since you already realize you maybe didn't make the BEST investment, you can at least look at it this way... Your temps under load aren't all that bad provided the temps can remain in that range for an extended period. I think the saddest part is that you didn't lower the noise level over air. That's the other half of water cooling... lower temps/less noise... when done right.

I'd say, save up some money to build a custom loop and sell the AIO if you can while it's still "new". Or as eBayers claim, "Brand new except opened the box to test". Yeah, right.

It does support TR & is keeping it cool. AMD does not claim top level cooling & or silence.

People choose AIO mainly for looks & the fact that it does not block any of your motherboard components.

The problems I have with the big aircoolers is that they block Ram slots, & are too close to the 1st PCIe slot, which can make it quite difficult to remove your GPU.
And can also make it difficult to remove your CPU power connection.

But I choose air coolers simply for their high quality components, good performance, low noise levels, cheaper price & most importantly, reliability.

May I know which air cooler are you referring to? , I suggest you try re-seating the cooler with appropriate TIM application. No need to over tighten it.
