High temps with H100


RudaaN

Recommended Posts

Hi i have recently installed my H100 but im getting higher temps then the H100 should give.

I have tried changeing the thermalpaste a couple of times to see if that would help, however that only reduced it a few degrees.

With my old watercooler i would only reach about 50 degrees when OC'ed to 3.8gHz.

Uh those temps looks pretty good for that CPU, that board, and 16GB of RAM. I had that board with an i7-975 and my temps were a lot higher than yours. Plus my CPU couldn't handle 16GB of RAM at anything other than default settings (i.e., 1333).

While stress testing ? I'd like to see a cooler that keeps a 3.8 1st gen i7 under 50 during stress testing (other than really nice custom water loop).

PFFT! I agree. I had to go custom loop after 3.5ghz. I had an H-50 and that couldn't keep up, so i had to go another route.

 

I now have my OC to 4.5ghz with temps in the mid 60's

I stand corrected my old cooler did not outperform the H100 tho i have a new question. What temp program should i trust.

 

Note that these tests are with my old cooler! (and while overclocked to 3.6gHz!)

 

This is while 100% load with real temp 2.

And this is with probe 2 during the same test.

And the sensor on my CPU cooler tells me its at 41 Celsius.

Trust realtemp... Probe 2 is probably not reading the core temperature... Core temperature is what matters... Run the H100 at those clocks and show a little comparison... How did your old cooler handle 3.8, ur hitting 80+ and that looks like stock settings.

One other thing to consider is that using more than one monitoring software can and will give you abnormal/false readings. Find one you like and uninstall all the others and see what your results are.

 

Core temperature is what matters

Actually it doesn't. If you look through intels sheets they state nothing about individual core temps and always use a Tcase temp or CPU case temp.. Giving people the ability to see the individual core temps just gave the end user one more thing to fret over.
