Hello, I’m noticing something rather odd starting to happen with my system and it’s stumped me. Hardware is not my strong suit and this is my first build to use something like iCUE for control, so I’d appreciate any insight anyone could give, please. For extra info, the system is only ~6 months old, all new parts. iCUE would typically report the coolant temperature of my H150i, the fancy version with the sensor display screen, as 30C at idle and it would typically reach ~35C while gaming. However, all of a sudden since just before the weekend, iCUE has periods where it will report the temperature at idle as being ~20C and it’ll only fluctuate by a few degrees while putting the system under load by doing things such as gaming. Just as inexplicably, after a time, it will jump to reporting a much more believable 35C, or greater, while under load or from seemingly having heated up from low fan speeds not counteracting the heat build-up at idle. Given that I’m running my fans off the coolant temperature, they of course rev right up and then the system will come back to its expected ~35C (load)/~30C (Idle) temperatures. These anomalies seem to happen both when the system is under load and when it’s idle. The CPU package temperature definitely goes up during a ‘Hiccup’, but it never gets crazy, even under load. Each time there’s a ‘Hiccup’, it’ll stay like that for a time, resolve itself and stay resolved for the rest of the day, or at least the vast majority of it before another one happens. Since Thursday it happened every day until Sunday where it functioned completely fine all day, making me believe the issue was not hardware related and had resolved itself. Monday and Tuesday were both also fine until just now where it happened again for half an hour or so. As extra info, I’ve: - Just updated iCUE to v4.30.162. - Use Armoury Crate v18.104.22.168 to turn motherboard LEDs off when the PC is shut down, because for some reason disabling this in the BIOS didn’t work. - Use EVGA Precision X1 v22.214.171.124 to control GPU LEDs. - Not seen any system instability or had any issues in either ‘State’ while idle or when the system is under load. Wanted to mention these as I’ve heard tell that iCUE doesn’t always play nice with other programs. Thanks for any help!
Just finished my PC Build for a workstation and I'm a bit confused as to the temperatures I'm seeing. I have a 9900X with a H100i cooling it. I'm seeing the coolant temps in iCUE range fro 32C (baseline) to as high as 42C for heavy workloads, but it's mostly around 38C for most cpu heavy work. The issue is that I'm seeing CPU temps as high as 78C and it'l hang there for a while. I'm not overclocking my CPU except for enabling XMP. I was thinking about OC a little bit to help with render times, but not until I better understand what I'm seeing here. My Cpu temps have been around 36C at idle, and around 60C during rendering, but there are times when the temps spike in the high 70s for a while during heavy rendering. After seeing that, I've switched my Pump from Balanced to Extreme while the Cooler Fans have been using the Balanced Fan curve. That has kept the highest temps down to 74C, but the setting just seem way too high for a non overclocked CPU. Are these normal temps that I'm seeing or is there something wrong? I feel that I'm being overly cautious, but I can't help it. I've ordered a Commander Pro to centralize all the fan controls, but it'll be a few days before I can get it. I set iCUE to launch on startup, but I still have to manually launch it for some reason. does it need to be actively open for the profiles to run properly? CPU: Intel 9900X not overclocked VCORE (VCPU in iCUE) doesn't move from .94V even though the graph moves around a lot, Vcore in HWiNFO64 peaked at 1.176V Coolant temp peaked @ 42C, hangs around 39C for heavy loads and 32C for baseline. Ambient Temps are around 24C CPU Cooler is top mounted as intake (Push) GPU is Nvidia 2080 ti Waterforce front mounted in push/pull testing temperatures in HWiNFO64 sensor status and iCue (since the H100i sensor readings don't show up in HWiNFO)
Hi everyone, I’m looking for clarification on whether the coolant temperature on my H100i v2 is in the normal range while conducting a stress test on my 8700K, the details are listed below. I have no reference point of whether the coolant temps are normal or out of range (hence this post), but to me the coolant temperature seems very low given the CPU temp even with when considering the poor die/IHS heat conductivity. I conducted this specific test twice, once after finishing the OC process and again after having repasted and reseated the cooler. -Test: Prime95 (v29.3) Small FFT (no AVX), temp readings taken after 2 hours. -CPU: Intel Core i7-8700K 4.9 GHz @ 1.312 V (1.31 V in Link). -CPU Max package temp: 89 degrees C. -H100i v2 max coolant temp: 34.1 C (idle temp 27.6 C). -Ambient room temp: ~24 C. -GPU temp during test: 30-34 C. -H100i v2 pump speed: 2900 RPM (Performance mode). -SP120L speed: 2700 RPM (Max). -Case/Fan arrangement: Cooler Master HAF 922 with 2x 200mm fan intake (front and side), top mounted radiator (exhaust, fans pushing) and 1x 120mm rear exhaust. Changing the pump setting to “Quiet” (1280 RPM) or reducing the fan speed to 50% only sees a coolant temperature increase of 1 C over the listed settings above. A touch test of the radiator and the air coming out of the radiator were both luke warm at best. Any help is appreciated!
