Corsair one i164 - CPU Coolant Temperature?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Struggling to find any data on this.

 

just bought a I164 9900k/2080 ti.

 

I have noticed even with the system under zero load just browsing the CPU Coolant temp creeps up to to 51 degrees ? is this normal ?

 

The fan then comes in like a rocket ship?

 

Doesn't sound right to me ?

Hi there,

 

Since you mentioned that you just picked up this system. Could you check which version of iCUE you're running? The system should have shipped with CORSAIR iCUE3 (latest version at time of writing would be: v3.38.61) optionally you could also install CORSAIR iCUE4 (latest version being v4.12.214)

 

I'd also suggest that you reach out to our technical support team at https://help.corsair.com for additional assistance with your system.

Thank you, could you give me an idea of what are the expected coolant temps for an idle system please?

Check the cooling logs (can download them from the app) and make sure that it isn't turning off the fan. I've had both iCUE3 and iCUE4 do this to me on my a100. For me, the fan coming on at full speed is actually the hardware protection bypassing the iCUE profile because it detected and overheat situation.

 

If you are setting a fixed % fan speed, know that it is bugged in iCUE4... see this Thread.

 

This will only be the start of your headaches with Corsair. You will more than likely not get your question answered either here or in an official ticket. If you open an official ticket you will wait days between replies and will quickly realize that the person on the other end either can't or doesn't want to understand / fix the issue.

 

I would highly suggest that you return that system while you still can. The machine's performance is much worse as compared to the same parts in a traditional case. There are MULTIPLE bugs in the iCUE that cause the fan to stop cooling your system. Corsair uses custom BIOS, and won't provided updates even if the board manufacturer has them available.

 

Their 'Award winning support' was a participation award, so what are you ACTUALLY paying a premium for?

 

Go to another company like REDUX and stay far away from this hot mess. The form factor is the ONLY thing these machines have going for it. I've owned an a100 for a year and had nothing but issues with it and Corsair.

That coolant temp seems high to me for just light use. It’s not necessarily a problem, though. Depends on what your CPU temp is hitting - not the coolant, the CPU itself. The coolant temp will rise as it dissipates heat from the CPU itself. So the coolant temp isn’t a problem so long as the CPU temp is under control.

 

You can download logs. Or better yet, just open the iCue dashboard, enable the CPU

/GPU sensors, and just watch what happens as you use the computer. Does the fan ramp up as the coolant temps increase? (At 51C, the fan definitely should be spinning.) What max chip temps are you getting? If you watch the numbers for awhile, you’ll get a good sense of what’s going on.
