Hologenz Posted January 2, 2016 Share Posted January 2, 2016 so i got my self a corsair h110i gt water cooler and it was ok for the first 6 months or so. now that summer has arrived in australia its getting really hot, and now i noticed that the cooler isnt working as it should be anymore. just under a week ago I noticed that while playing my games i was getting huge fps drops and tracked it down to the cpu getting really hot between 90-100 degrees. so i looked at the corsair link program and boosted up the rpm on fans and boosted the pump, and it got worse and my pc started freezing up from the overheating. after about an hour i let it cool and started it up again and still the cpu would overheat in just under 5 mins at idle. now i started to take action. first thing i did was turn my fans on the cooler around to take the heat out. this did nothing. next i inspected the entire thing for leaks or breaks, still nothing. third i redid the thermal paste on the cooler and attach it as perfect as i could, and again nothing it still overheated after 5 mins. now im stuck and forced to use the stock intel fan cause i dont have enough time to diagnose what it is without it overheating. i cant figure it out can someone please help me Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
