Teknina Posted September 8, 2013 Share Posted September 8, 2013 Howdy, This is my first attempt at liquid cooling. Followed the instructions perfectly, system runs, but it's running much hotter than it did with my Cooler Master Hyper 212. With my Hyper 212, my CPU was running around 40* idle. With the H80i installed, my system is running around 60-70* idle. Any ideas? I followed the directions as well as it stated to make the fans by the "exhaust" pull air into my system (intake). Everything is working but the temps are a bit high. I did use the default thermal paste but I doubt that would cause that high of a bump in temps. I have attached a photo to this post. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here are my specs: CPU: i7 970 Mobo: Intel DX58SO Samsung SSD GTX 460 GPU Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
