I would think about purchasing a new H80i if you can't get temps your happy with and follow these steps.

I used 3 thin metal washers on every screw on the back of the H80i backplate (I can post pics later). I used the original thermal paste as it's spread perfectly so I recommend trying that first. I have GC-Extreme. I very carefully lined it up and pressed down then proceeded to tighten all the while making sure it never moved an millimetre damaging the thermal layer. If it gets moved around it will possibly tear or spread unevenly and create air bubbles. Their thermal paste does do a good job although I did delided my CPU and sadly when I did my old H80i wasn't working right so I can't say for sure how much I gained.

EDIT: You should obviously try again with your H80i and good thermal paste and then possibly get another that's what I did.

new H80i user here.

i5-2500k @ 4.5Ghz, 1.296V
idling at around 35C, during 5min Prime95 blend test temp varied between 65C and 70C, my ambient temp is around 23C.

I thought I messed up with the install, block moved a bit while I secured it, but I didn't have any extra thermal paste, so I just went with the pre applied one.
I am happy with the temps though and there isn't any huge differences between cores while stress testing so it probably is fine.

Btw, it probably is best to include some info about the fan speeds as well, I aimed at really silent operation, here is my fan curve info:

Cool :) nice results mate. Where do you get your ambient temp from? Is it located in your motherboard or do you use your Phones app for that?

I just checked what the AC reported as current room temperature :P

Hello I'm a new member of corsair's forum.

Am I running with high temps for a H80i?

I have a 3 days old h80i for my rig 2600k @ 4.5Ghz 1.3v, in my case I'm in a tropical country Philippines. During day time around 10:00-17:00 my room temp is around 32c-33c, at night, seems to be the lowest is 28.5c monitored by a mercury type room thermometer(no A/C).

Rad placement in case rear exhaust with push pull fan config. Airflow intake.

Profile:
Custom curve
at day;
push
1725rpm lock
pull
2500rpm lock
at night;
push
600rpm|28c liquid temp
2500rpm|34c liquid temp
Pull 2500rpm lock

Here are my temps.
Using IBT for temp check

Daytime:
idle; min core 35 package 38
load; max core 74 package 74

Night time:
idle; min core 26 package 32
load; max core 69 package 69

found out that intake fan is whining like a f1 v6 intake sound above 1700rpm in 200r case.

Actually I'm a bit disappointed because the performance of h80i (louder) and my air cooler @77c is not huge.

I had a problem with my first H80i not 100% sure what it was but it does look different to my current. The first radiators fins where really compressed and my new one I can see through it better.

Another thing that isn't mentioned in the manual or quick guide is to use washers between the backplate and the motherboard, or else proper contact can be a issue hence it won't work properly. I think that in the end was the issue with my first H80i, though even later with new GC extreme thermal compound and washers it wasn't working properly. It could have been the fins on the rad I don't know.

My new H80i has been flawless, I used three washer behind each screw and I kept the original thermal compound on there and made sure to line it up perfectly and once pressed down made sure it didn't move at all and fastened the screws diagonally whilst always having pressure on it as I tightened it so the thermal compound wasn't damaged or created pockets of air. If you separate it at all once it's made contact it won't work as well as it doesn't come off evenly, this is very important.

My temps on idle are 28-30 degrees celsius and load temps are 56 degrees celsius max at 4.3Ghz @ 1.248v.

Even at 4.5 Ghz and 1.35v it only reaches 65 degrease celsius max with small FFT on Prime 95 even after 30+ min.

My new H80i is much quieter because the temps are lower, that was a nice surprise so I know what you mean by F1 Kreikx.

I also delided my 4770k with the vice method and used GC extreme on the CPU die and Selley's Instant Gasket Silicon R.T.V rated at 200 degrees to put it back together, looks just like it did before and eliminated blue screens and random power failures ;) I kept the original Corsair H80i thermal compound on there as it's perfectly applied and works great.

Default 3770k and H80i

Hi Guys just wanted too know witch program i should use too monitor temps with, im currently using HWMonitor at full load doing small FTT's in prime95 im getting around 70C, idle temps range from 30-40C, i put on some arctic silver 5 and it hasent done its 200 hours that its supposed to but would that really make much of a difference? also my CPU is at stock clocks.

When i check Temps with Asus AI Suite II at full load my temps dont go over 50C, any help would be appreciated

Corsair Link or HWMonitor are fine for monitoring temps. That said, your temps do sound a little high; I'd also consider uninstalling AI Suite II, which may conflict with readings from other software.

It's nice to see a little revival of this thread here! Great community help seems to be alive and kicking!

agreed on uninstalling Aisuite
Id also suggest instead of small fft testing,just use large fft or a blend,small fft is just too intense and not a good representation of real world full load usage.

you will also notice a 8-10 degree drop in temps
another killer tester is heavy load,i have a 4930 with 32 gig ram and it dragged it down to where even the mouse was erratic.

Ive had good results using real temp to monitor my core temps as it correlates best with Link software.

Hi I new to the forum :)

I have an i7 3770 and just bought a H80i. I was wondering if my temps are okay or if I should worry?

I'm using the fans that come with the H80i at the rear of my case pulling air in and getting 37.8C idle and the highest I've noticed was 68.5C at about 61% load.

Not sure if this is normal as there is only about 3 degrees difference to my stock cooler and considering I paid $135 (Australian) for this cooler I can't help but feel ripped off.

It's not easy to give a definitive temperature range for these things, but if you can provide the clock speed for your i7 3770, your voltage, and how the radiator is set-up in your system (exhaust or intake air), we might be able to give you a better answer.Also keep in mind your room temperature plays a big part in this number as well. It's Summer on your end, so a warm room is going to affect your temps. I have an 8-10C difference under load between summer and winter.

I'm in air-con room 24C
Stock i7 3770 3.40GHz
Rad intake from back

I measured temps using Core temp and just got 71C @ 68% load, whereas corsair link says 57.8 @ 68% load???

Use Core Temp or Real temp instead as the values in the LINK software are averages.

Your idle looks a bit high but load is ok depending on how intense. What temps do you get at 100% load? I'm thinking that you may need to reseat your h80i and possibly be ready to replace the tim with something like arctic silver.
