First my specs: CPU: i9-9900K MOBO: Aorus Z390 Master RAM: 32gb (4x8) Corsair Vengeance LPX GPU: MSI Gaming X trio RTX 3090 SSD: Samsung 970 Evo Pro Case: Corsair Carbide Air 540 + DEMCiflex Dust Filters (For the record the filters are placed at the top, bottom, front(along with the included filter), side, and back as pictured in the included link) Now the cooling: Front Fans(intake): 3x 120mm Noctua NF-S12B redux-1200 PWM Back Fan(exhaust): Noctua 140mm NF-A14 PWM CPU Cooler: Corsair H115i Elite Cappelix + 2x Noctua 140mm NF-A14 PWM Paste: Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut SSD Heat Sink: Sabrent M.2 2280 SSD Rocket Heatsink Ambient room temps are about 18c-20c. (according to my phone) I used to hit 30-32 c cooling when I had an OG H115i, but now I'm hitting around 35 c when idle and I have to put all my fans to the max. To make things worst I left my PC on for a few hours and somehow Disco Elysium was downloaded and running on the title screen (I'm still not sure how that happened, I finished and uninstalled months ago). My coolant temps were at 50 c!!?!?! I'm wondering what could be the cause? I've reapplied thermal paste twice. Could this be a bad cooler(happened to me with the OG H115i, I RMA'ed it)? Or could it be the dust filters? Or event bad airflow? Below is the inside of my PC any advice would be appreciated!
I am a proud owner of a Corsair Carbide Air 540. I have a Corsair H115i mounted on the top as exhaust. I recently got fortunate enough to purchase the EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 ULTRA HYBRID GAMING. My question is would it's 240mm radiator + plus fit into my system in the front? And if so should the fans intake or exhaust? Thanks
