i7 5820k Overheating with a H115i

Hello all


I have an i7 5820k in stock configuration, It used to be overclocked but high temperatures became an issue so i returned it to default settings. However my temperatures still climb into the 80s and high 70s when under a light load. I can't stress test it at all with programs as the temps immediately spike into the 90s .I got my h115i in 2016 and have generally had high temps in the 70s for most of its life.

I've replaced the thermal paste at least 6 times trying different methods and different pastes which never helped. I recently changed cases to improve airflow which has not helped at all.

Currently I have a push pull configuration to maximize airflow over the radiator but that has not helped either. Even with the pump in performance mode and the fans at 100% my CPU temps still climb into the high 70s and occasionally the 80s depending on the game. With the h115i temps getting into the low 50s.

My pump is always running in performance to keep idle temps around 55 C with the h115i temp reading about 38 c. around 3150 RPM

All other temps in my case are reading in the mid to low 30s at idle.

I opened the side of my case while it was on to poke around and the head of the radiator where the hoses enter was burning hot to the touch.

I think I need a new cooling solution? unless I've done something wrong.

If water temps are high then it's not a mounting issue because heat is making it into the water. So you can stop remounting

Push pull does nothing on the H115i, the fins aren't dense enough for there to be a benefit.

Do you have the problem on other coolers? Could be a badly concave/convex IHS, though unless you have insanely high ambients you're probably looking at an RMA. Even on an OCed 9900K with my pump and fans on low my water temp rarely tops 40c.

I'm just a little hesitant to go with corsair again in case I have the same problem. I have been trying to find a decent other brand but nothing I look at gives me a definitive answer as to thermal performance.


Should I just stick with Corsair?

They all use the same components with a few exceptions. None of them make CLCs they just put them together and add crap like rgb and a body kit.
RMA that one or use an air cooler if you want something that will last. Or build a loop, D5s can run for over 5 years, usually 8 to 10.

I'd be surpised if the numbers weren't relatively the same as any other custom loop with a 280, and yeah, i don't think they have been stocked yet (didnt they first show it at CES last week?). Neat idea if you want real loop performance in a AIO-ish form factor.

I was hoping it was on par with a loop and yes they were just recently announced.
It's crazy how much better a custom loop's 360 is compared to an AIOs performance of the same size.

Performance should be great. Rad, pump and block have a proven track record of great performance. Unfortunately, the pump also has a reliability track record, and it isn't good - https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-w...-problems.html

AC initially said it would be a D5 in there, then opted for the 755 to cut down cost. Maybe having the 755 mated with a top and housing specifically made for it will help. But what if it doesn't? Will AC continue to use "not our problem" as a customer service model? If so, that's a big issue.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....
