Coffee Posted October 21, 2013 Share Posted October 21, 2013 Just put together a new build using the hydro h100i. It booted fine, and except for the usual first boot issues, everything was great. I put together this build to overclock, so the first thing I did was check stock temps. Much to my dismay, I am seeing extremely high stock temps for my 4770k. On full load the core temps will approach, and sometimes exceed 90 degrees C. Here is picture of intel burn test with hw monitor: http://s17.postimg.org/bvlk6dy8v/cpu_temps.png As you can see the fans and pump appear to be working fine. Putting the fans to max speed has little to no impact on load temps. I also have a ton of airflow in my case, so its not an issue of congested heat. Thinking it was a bad install, I took everything apart, cleaned it, and reassembled. Temps were actually worse this time. This is probably because I used AS5 (only thing I had on hand), which as we know is worse than what comes pre-applied. One thing I did notice was that the mounting bracket was very loose. I have seen the posts about some boards not being 100% compatible. It seems like it is tightening up just fine though. I even tried pushing on the pump during a burn test, but didn't notice any difference. Although maybe there is an issue with the spacing and I am just not seeing it. My next step is an RMA unless anyone can think of something I can try. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
