H100i pro XT

Greetings,

I just got my new h100i pro XT which is just amazing.

 

Everything is super fine. One thing I notice is a difference between HWmonitor an corsair iCUE: 4655 RPM vs 2340 RPM (see attached images).

 

What's wrong here? My previous cooler master AIO gave me a good reading on HWmonitor. Actually on iCUE the pump is fixed at 2343 always.

Divide by 2. A pump and a fan don't spin exactly the same way. Most manufacturers use a divider to turn the actual pump revolutions into a value we recognize. That is RPM/2 for Corsair coolers.

 

Currently the Platinum/XT coolers show the raw value in the BIOS, as did the GT/GTX/v2 coolers from a prior generation. Some like the Pro series show the corrected value at the BIOS level.

The 10900k is surprisingly easy to cool, because of the thinned die, so i'd say yes you should have absolutely no trouble with it at stock settings or overclocked (within reason, don't go pumping 400W on it ^^).

 

((Just to illustrate, my i7 9700K overclocked (~180W) was running hotter than the 10900k at 300W.))

I don't think the H100i XT should have a problem with the 10900K unless your normal use is max load CPU professional work for long stretches. Despite all the talk about how much power it uses, my CPU output during mixed use like gaming is only 80-120W. That's not really any more than my 8700K before and a 240mm radiator can handle that level of wattage pretty easily. Like all of the current CPUs, you will hit the voltage/CPU temp wall long before the cooler's ability to dump heat becomes the limiting factor.
