Dragynfyre Posted December 27, 2013 Share Posted December 27, 2013 I just installed a H80i on my i5-4670K @stock in my Node 304 case. When I run Prime95 with small FFTs I get load temps of 65-66C with the fans at 1100RPM. Is this normal? I didn't get a chance to test with the stock cooler so I don't have any temps to reference with. Also the coolant temperature is only 39-40C. Is that indicative of poor thermal contact between the CPU and waterblock? It was really hard to tighten the standoff screws into the backplate and I couldn't get all the threads to go into the backplate so it was loose. I also had to install the H80i horizontally like this: http://cdn.overclock.net/c/c0/500x1000px-LL-c0abb054_2013-02-0316.29.20.jpeg (image just for reference, that's not my PC) is that okay? Also noise wise there is a grinding sound when the fans go above 750RPM. Is this normal? And when I unplug my fans there is still a buzzing noise which I assume is the pump. Is it supposed to be this loud? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
