H150i rgb pro xt Question


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

So I have a H150i RGB PRO XT and it's been fine.  For a about a month now I'm noticing some abnormal behavior.  If i'm doing a light workload, or even just playing a game like LOL, my AIO water temperature will spike to 55c making the fans go to 100%.  Now the interesting thing is that my case temperature is like 27-32c and the rise in AIO will literally last 1-2min then it will go back to normal around the 35c mark and the fans will spin down.

I've never had an issue in the past with heat in my case, or with the AIO and I would be surprised that if the fans were running at 100% for 1-2min it would drop the water temperature by 20c.

I've updated iCUE, updated the firmware and I can't figure it out.

Do you happen to be running other hardware monitoring software at the same time as iCUE?

Also how old is the AIO? If it's not a software conflict, it could be first signs of a growing flow restriction

I run Argus, but it doesn't monitor the AIO.   The AIO is around 2 years old now maybe... max 3 years.

Temps 24/7 are normal, its just these odd occasions where it spikes the water temp and then goes back to normal.

I also don't have iCUE running all the time.  The fan curve etc is all saved to the AIO, and I only load the software when I want to change/check something.

Argus indeed is another hardware monitoring software and as such can still cause conflicts leading to bad data and resulting in the cooler spinning up as you detailed.
