i7 5820k Overheating with a H115i
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.
