75-90c Idle temps, H100i RGB platinum

hi guys, i just built a new rig with the mentioned cooler.

 

In Icue, the temp of the cooler reads 25c.

 

In both Link and Speccy i'm reading 75c with a balanced setting. When ichange the settings i can hear the pump and fands working. I've ensure proper connections for the AIO pump, re-seated it on the processor and made sure it was tightened, and played around with the bios settings. But even on EXTREME, i can't get it to go below 73 IDLE. Thats scary, and i don't know why its happening.

 

It sometimes spikes to 90 for no apparent reason.

 

I looked in device manager for the corsar Uspx controller as mentioned, can't find it.

 

Am i missing something? Icue detects the H100i RGB Platinum but Link does not.

 

I'm using the Corsair Crystal 280X case and an ASrock fatality mini ITX gaming b450 motherboard which i updated to bios 1.7

 

I downloaded Ryzen Master. It says my CPU temp is fluctuating between 37 and 40 C. Which sounds perfectly fine. VDC is 1.425 with a small bit of fluctuation.

 

Why is it that Speccy and Corsair Link are picking up insanely high temps, but the BIOS and Ryzen Master are not? Worrying.

Get rid of Link. Its death pre-dates the Platinum series cooler, so it won't detect that. It also may not accurately read the 2600/2700 temps either. There was an issue with CPU-Z when Link went end of life and I do not know if the fix was ever implemented. Unless you have one of a handful of legacy devices that require Link (Corsair Commander Mini, etc), there is no reason to have it running.

 

What does iCUE say for CPU temps? Does it match the AMD software?

So i think what is happening is a case of bad readings from some programs. Icue says 25c, but i think thats the liquid temp. Doesn't seem to have the cpu tems.

 

I just played two hours of a game on max settings, no crash, barely any temp rise on Ryzen Master. I'm thinking everything's fine. Thanks for the advice about Link my man.

You need to manually add the CPU and anything else that is not a Corsair device to the dashboard to see it. Click the + next to Dashboard at the top of the window. The CPU should be listed. Most other things you want will be under the System Info tab. Once you have the huge block of motherboard data, you can pull out individual readings to have their own space or delete unnecessary or garbage data points (there are usually a few temp sensors that won't be read correctly).
