TheRgbGuy Posted August 16, 2022 Share Posted August 16, 2022 So i build my pc 2019 with an i9 9900k an corsair h150i aio (at start 3x 120LL later upgraded to QL) and in a bequite darkbase pro 900 rev2. I also removed the front so completely open and i got 3x 140mm QL fans in the case so should be pretty high airflow. All temps measured at around 21-22°C room temp and the 9900k is stock, no oc. Back when i built it the temps where "fine". Idle around 35°C liquid and 42°C CPU, while gaming (~35% cpu usage) 45 liquid and around 70-75°C cpu and with high load like prime95 after 10min or so around 55°C liquid and 95°C but still 4,7ghz so no throttle. i guess fine for a 9900k from what i have heard. I didnt really look much on temps since then, yesterday i reset my pc and while testing some games i was pretty shocked to see the cpu temp at 95°C, liquid at 67°C and cpu throttled to 3.4ghz....... while like 40% usage. I did some further testing with the intel xtu and some static load (100% usage with prime95). During the following tests all fans where 100%, the pc was cooled of before (33°C liquid at start) and the pumpspeed in icue was shown at 3000mhz in the preset intense. At stock cpu ~120w, the pc shut of after 5 sec and hitting over 100°C cpu...... Locked to 100w limit, after a couple seconds 95-98°C CPU after one minute 58°C liquid (from 35 before) Locked to 75w, stayes at around 80-87°C for a couple minutes but after like 10min starts going to around 90°C. Aio broken? I checked thermal paste looked fine and repasted it but same results. Nice.......i mean i like corsair products specially icue and bought heavily into the ecosystem but i am really disappointed, over around 3 years, i had 4 LL fans fail (3x LED flickering and one motor dead) and multiple lightstrips as well as one ls450mm fail (cant control them anymore after a certain led, probably internal connection between leds broken) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
