H150i Elite Capellix - High CPU Temp

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Ich habe vor wenigen Tagen meinen neune Rechner zusammengebaut und nutze den H150i.
Ich kaufte den 12700KF und habe mir daher auch das Retofit Kit von Corsair bestellt.

My CPU-Temp in idle is around 30°C.
My Liquid-Temp in idle is also around 30°C (room temp 20-21°C).

On full load my CPU-Temp rises to 80-85°C. My Liquid-Temp is slowly rising to 35-37°C after 1-2 Hours at 100% CPU.
But even on 30%-50% CPU load my CPU temp goes 55-60°C. For my Tests all fans run at 100%. My radiator is top-mounted, fans blowing thought the radiator and out auf the case.

The tempature seems a little high to me. Also the CPU and liquid difference seems a little high too. Is there anything wrong with my H150i?

Coolant to CPU temperature differential is a function of conductivity and voltage. Obviously the metals don’t change their properties so this is usually a result of your Vcore setting. 50-60C is typically where a high overclock will land, although only the voltage for that is required and not the cpu frequency. I don’t have a lot of user data for 12700K, so you’ll need to note your load Vcore (normal and AVX max droop) and see how that compares to other 12700 owners. 

As to the “middle cpu percentages” I suspect that is normal for the new design. Core % is mathematical but voltage load does not necessarily correspond to that. The big-little core design may also factor in with the e-cores boosting the cpu temp when tasked with low level operations. Either way, check your Vcore in this state. It’s likely at the same normal peak or 90% peak range and thus the cpu temp is elevated. Remember the “cooler” is really waste heat disposal. It can’t prevent the socket pins from heating the cpu in the first place. Your load coolant delta is good, so the cooler is doing its thing. However, we are all limited by voltage.
