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!
Hi all I'm in the middle of buying parts for my first PC build and have a question about cooling. My parts so far are: CPU Intel i9 9900k GPU ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB ROG Strix OC Edition Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 64 GB (4x16GB) Motherboard ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero (Wi-Fi) Z390 Cooler AIO Corsair H150i Pro XT Case To be decided based on how much airflow I need I'm going to be using mainly for Animation/VFX/Design (a lot of After Effects and some C4D Animation/GPU Rendering.) From the options below, what would be the safer airflow setup with my H150i Pro XT in order to keep both the i9900k and 2080ti cool enough, especially if doing a bit of overclocking? 1. Use the H150i as an exhaust on the top of the case with 3 x 120mm case fans on the front to provide cool air for the GPU. However, I've read posts saying the heat from the GPU will just end up heating the CPU too much in this case. 2. Use the H150i at the front as intake and 3 x 120mm case fans on top as exhaust. However for this option I've read that the GPU will get too hot because of air inflow being heated by radiator. I'm aware there are several posts about this but I haven't seen any specifically with my parts above so wondering what people think is a safe solution for me? Open to other configuration suggestions for my specs but can't really approach any custom waterloops as I'm PC build beginner! Thanks in advance for any help :)
