itzhalo Posted December 27, 2015 Share Posted December 27, 2015 Hello Corsair Forums. I just recently purchased an i7 for the holidays and decided to use my H80i that I have had for almost half a year by now. I hooked it up and noticed some of my temps. Before using washers: Idle: 42-52c Load: Up to 80c Average when gaming: 65c and sometimes reaches 70c most of the time. Using washers: Idle: 35-40 Load: 68c Average when gaming: 48-58c, depending on game could sometimes reach around 67c but doesn't stay for long at all. Never has touched 70c at all yet and hopefully will stay that way. I have noticed that my temperatures do spike. It will sometimes jump from 35c to 44c and then come back down right away. I just was wondering, are these temps alright for this cooler? I am on the quiet setting. I have tried remounting numerous times with varying amounts of thermal paste to test if I wasn't using too much or too little and the temps were pretty much the same. I have everything in bios set to default except XMP enabled, turned windows power mode to balanced, and enabled C1E support and C-State. I am using the fans as an exhaust (Fan>Radiato>Fan). According to corsair link the pump is working (2268 RPM). **I made sure that the backplate has aligned with the notches as well! :cool: HWMonitor during simply using chrome with fans mounted as exhaust (Fan>Radiator>Fan): http://s26.postimg.org/kadn72d89/screenshot_37.png If you guys need more info I can post more! :cool: Specs: i7 4790k Stock MSI Z97 PC Mate Motherboard Corsair H80i Cooler 16GB 1600mhz G.Skilll Ripjaws Corsair CX750m PSU EVGA SC GTX 970 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
