devdevil85 Posted March 12, 2013 Share Posted March 12, 2013 I just purchased a H110 and combined it with an AMD FX-8350 to get the best OC. I am trying to OC the 8350 to 5Ghz but am experiencing higher than normal CPU temperatures which is not a good sign. I have the 8350 voltages set to stock and am using the multiplier to OC. I am currently at 33C running idle at 4.4Ghz (with all power savings options disabled to perform the best OC). It is hitting 61C on full load which seems insanely high compared to what the AMD Stock Liquid Cooling System is capable of doing (33C at load). I removed the stock thermal paste with Arctic Silver 5 (using the bead method in the middle of the chip) but that didn't help. The H110 CPU fan is connected to my Mobo CPU Fan connector. In my 500R, I have tried both push and pull configurations (with the radiator on the bottom and the fans on top), but neither config corrects the issue. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I was expecting 20C idle and 50C maximum under full load, not 33C idle 61C under full load. Here are two pics of what it looks like: http://i.imgur.com/MpO609t.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ZmsAmbl.jpg Any help would be greatly appreciated.
