Default H115i Plat + SPEC-OMEGA RGB

I have a front mounted H115i Plat with push setup with two exhaust fans.

The case is an omega RGB.

My idel temps are 31.4 C on the pump and the cpu sits at 39C.

CPU is a 9900k overclocked to 5ghz.

When playing games my pump temp goes up to about 41C after a while but the cpu heat still sits at 50C.

I'm just wondering if this is a normal temp for the pump to get too.

I have a custom fan curve linked below.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

What vCore are you actually running (not the BIOS setting ... what's the reading)?

Also, it sounds like you are pushing your GPU heat through the radiator. This will heat it up; there's no way around the simple physics of it. We need to understand your entire airflow as well as the rest of the hardware, which you've not filled out.

Default Moving Rad to top

Hi again,

I have taken pictures of the current layout of the case.

I've ordered one more HD120mm fan to add an extra exhaust to the case.

I'm just wondering if i can get any advice on whether to move the front rad up
so it's not directly next to the Hard drives and the shrouds?

Or if it make more sense to top mount the radiator and have 1 exhaust fan plus the AIO exhausting and move the two 120mm fans as intake as?

The worry with top mounting this AIO on this case i don't actually think there is space when looking at the setup.

Has anyone had experience with top mounting a AIO in the case?

All help will be greatly appreciated, as this is my first build using a AIO cooler it's very confusing on how to get the airflow correct!!

So ... with my son's computer, we mounted the H115 in the front, but up higher so that the PSU doesn't block the exhaust airflow. We also mounted the radiator outside the main case area (IIRC) and then the fans inside in a PULL configuration.

Did you mount a fan at the front then or did you leave a gap to allow the airflow to come through into the case then?

Radiator on the outside.
Fans on the inside, pulling air through the radiator.
It was a touch tricky to mount but works fine. Air comes through the front..
