tusing Posted August 14, 2013 Share Posted August 14, 2013 Hey all. Just installed my Corsair H80i today. Within a few minutes of powering on my computer, I noticed that the H80i's fans were revved up, and very loud! So, here's what the temps are, on my AMD FX-8150 and Biostar 990 FXE in my Antec 1100 case: Idle: 35-55 degrees celsius Load: Never got to test, within 10 seconds of opening Prime95, temps skyrocketed to 80 degrees and my computer shut off (within those 10 seconds) Taking a look at my temps, my temps fluctuate wildly as does my fan speed. The installation of the fan was a pain - there was not much room in the case at all to install, I'm wondering if I nicked off some thermal paste? If so, how should I go about reapplying? (connected to a 4-pin because manual said connect to 3 or 4 pin and closest was 4 pin) How should I go about fixing this? If it's thermal paste, I have an unused tube of IC Diamond 7 carat paste, but I've never applied before - how should I go about doing it in this *extremely* tight case without having it smear?
