r-federer Posted October 8, 2013 Share Posted October 8, 2013 I'm new to this forum and a newbie in overclocking. I have just set up a PC with the Asus maximus hero vi LGA1150 mobo with an i5-4670k cpu. Also got the h100i as the cooler. I overclocked the cpu to 4.4ghz at 1.2v. performance is stable so I checked the temps using RealTemp. wow it showed 99 degrees at full load. hence, I did a search on the corsair forums and results showed that the backplate may be wrongly fitted. re-seated the heat sink 3 times and now I think the h100i is installed proper. So my qns is, my idle temp at load 1-2% hovers around 36-38 degrees (previous 45-48 with the backplate issue), while at full load running prime95 for 15mins doesn't exceed 72 degrees. ambient temp is around 27 degrees. Am I finally getting the H100i installed correctly with these results? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
