H100i Drop in performance


Recommended Posts

When I first got it setup in April, not talking prime 95 here. temperature was terrible.


i have no OC, but runs turbo @ 3.9GHz.

playing borderlands 2 my 3770k was at max 68 degrees., idle ~35


about last week, the temperature has increased to 78 degree.


Today, I replaced the pre-applied tim to arctic cooling mx-4. i got the temperature down close to previous level, max @ 70 degree for borderlands 2.

Now playing bioshock infinite @ 73 degree. idle is cooler @ 33


I can say the pump is working @ 2196, fans ok.


Now I am thinking, maybe I applied too little tim for the dot method. Or the 3770k internal tim is garbage on this chip i have.



Ambient is about 19 to 21 degree


is it suppose to be one tube warm, one tube cold on h100i?


my mobo is msi mpower z77
