h80i temps


Recommended Posts

Hi, i am running H80i on 3770k with stock clocks.

I am running corsair link 2.2, firmware 1.0.4

to get rid of the high pitch noise, i have the fans connected to my fan controller.


In corsair link software i cannot see the fans, NOR the h80i temp.


After having temp problems(50 iddle, 90 load), i have reseated the unit (i had very little thermal paste applied, there was just a circle in the middle of the chip covering only like 1/3 of it.


I have cleaned everyrthing up, aplied much more paste and now i am gettin:


idle: 38-42

prime95 : 61-75

fans @800rpm push/pull as an exhaust


i am still not very satisfied, shall i try reseating again?

The product is advertised to perform 48C under load for OC 3770k @4,6ghz. I am nowhere near that. Several reviews i have read have measured smth like 28 idle, 52 load @ stock. I am nowhere near that too.


What are your temps guys?

I have the same cooler and CPU. I run my fans in "balanced" mode ~1300 rpm and have the fans in intake position. I run my CPU at stock speed of 3500Mhz and Idle is about 7-21 degrees depending on the core.


What are you measuring temps with? (I use Hwinfo)

i was using HWmonitor from CPUID, and talked about the "package" temp, which i guess is an aporoximate value for all the cores.


i upped my fans to around 1200rpm


i downloaded hwinfo and in tab "sensors" i have under


cpu# digital thermal Sensor


cores #1-4


idle temps 37-41

prime 95 temps 62-72


how come you are gettin 7!! :eek: degrees? its lower than the temperature in your room, that must be wrong, its imposibble to achieve that under water/air.


try hw monitor and check temps under prime95 pls...

i unmounted the unit again.

The paste was spread on the whole surface of the chip, from my point of view it just seemed that there was a little too much of it (compared to the pre-applied layer from corsair).

So i cleaned it up, applied little bit less and this time i used arctic cooling MX4 instead of my three year old MX2. It instanly seemed much more spread-likely, it has less density.

I checked my backplate and discovered that i had it upside down, the two cut down corners facing down, instad of up. i flipped it then, but it seems to sit tight either way.


Anyway now i am gettin


28-38 in idle

59-64 in prime95


fans at minimum controlled by external controller. Guessing from the ammount of noise its about ~800 RPM.

The high pitch noise is gone due to that. No other noises.


I am satisfied now. Yes, there is a place for satisfied customer in these forums too :)
