CORSAIR H100i RGB PLATINUM SE AIO Liquid Temps

I recently received my replacement cooler after the recall and noticed that my water temps rises to high 30s with the fans ramping up to 2000 rpm when I turn on the RGB lights. The previous cooler did not do this, am I doing something wrong? Images attached for reference.

Set a custom fan curve in icue no need to run presets, also that is a stunning rig by the way! is that an msi rtx 2070 gaming z? i have that gpu and loving it

 

I guess that's the only solution. And thank you, the GPU is actually a MSI RTX 2080 gaming x trio.

39.5c your saying is high? the one you had before that was less, cuz mine is in the high 40s 49 was max.

 

It is relative to your starting coolant temperature. If your room is 30C and the case ambient temp 35C, then you really can't have a 22C coolant temperature. Most people see an increase of +6-10C when at continued load. While the cooler isn't going to fail at 50C, once you establish that as your minimum baseline, you are going to see really high CPU temperatures even at stock clocks.

 

Now all that said, this thread was about a falsely reported temp increase related to LED activity and sensor proximity. If you cut your lights off and the coolant temp drops 8C, then you know you have the same issue.

My room temp is 24c, the only way that I can reduce my coolant temps is to run everything at full speed for about 15 minutes. Then I turn everything to balanced and everything shoots back up to low 40s @ idle. No leds at all. Is this pretty standard or do you think there is something wrong?

No, that isn't normal. Can you be specific about what cooler you have? H100i Platinum SE? Or something else? H100i v2 perhaps?

 

If you set your pump speed and fans to balanced and the coolant temperature immediately starts clearly rising, you probably have some kind of blockage. If that blockage is air bubbles, it is usually fixable. Try cycling the pump from low to high and again every 10-15 seconds to try and push them out of the block. You can also tip the case backwards to see if you can get the hoses above the CPU block. Bubbles typically make uneven, static like noise in the CPU block.

 

However, if you don't hear anything and the temps are rising, put your hand over the exhaust from the radiator. It should be approximately the same temp as the coolant. 40C is going to feel quite warm. It is is cool like the room, then heat is not getting to the radiator for dispersal. One warm hose and one cool is also a trouble sign. Both hoses should be indistinguishable in temperature. You can try tapping hoses, the CPU block, the same stuff as above, but typically this is going to be a reoccurring problem even if you get some temporary relief. Contact Corsair through the ticket system and see about a replacement.
