Perfect! Great numbers too! Your setup looks pretty well put together as well! I envy your cool rig! Pun intended!
your cool is cool ;) lol

im a fan of fans...sorry couldnt help myself :P

im really bored meh...you can probably tell

bump! Anyone else going to post their h80i max temps, airflow setup etc? I'm sure there are many non registered users out there who'd appreciate it! Perhaps it will inspire them to post as well! Thanks!

Just installed the H80i into a Fractal Design R4 case.

I wanted to install it to the front panel in intake mode but the tubes were too short and I ended up putting it to the rear in exhaust mode, moving the rear fan to the front as 2nd intake fan (no top or bottom fans).

After having thought this through a little bit I actually find this to be the better setup anyway since fresh air is sucked into the case where the only other major heat source is the graphics card (which has its own little intake/exhaust system).

Having it the other way around would mean that the air intake is heated up by the radiator before being available to cool the other parts inside the case, including the GPU (which tends to get hotter than the CPU anyway).

I am seeing pretty decent results with the fans in Quiet Mode and a slightly overclocked FX 6300 - around 34 degrees C (H80i temp) idle in a mid 20s room environment rising to 39ish running Cinebench in multi and single CPU modes.

my g620 will barely reach 40c under a full load,,wish the others were that cool

@wd69 Your input is much appreciated! I agree with your configuration; it makes sense to have the coolest air possible for the radiator much like we have for our cars right?

UPDATE:

I'm still trying to pin point why but I'm not complaining but I have achieved what I consider reasonable temps to go back to overclocking! Here's what happened:

1. I reconfigured the h80i so that it intakes cool air rather than exhasting hot from the case.

2. I updated my BIOS and it seems to be holding the voltages lower (tighter?) by default resulting in MUCH cooler temps.

I may be mixing event number 2 with coincidental observation but it is an observation. I've attached a pic of the cpuz read on this with my realtemp temperatures. As you can see I am stable at 54-57C while under approximately 80% load. I also tested this against prime95 running small FFTs via the sensor test in realtemp and she will not break past 60C! I am sooo elated about this as I was hitting 80-90C before running at stock speed! I noticed the voltages where ranging between 1.0-1.4 before and now they range between .8-1.2. I didn't think it would make THAT much of a difference but it is!

Summary with current configuration (updated BIOS and h80i as intake):

Ambient Temp: 23.3C
Idle Temps: 22-29 Depending on Core
Max Load Temps: 54-57 Depending on Core (Video Conversion 70-80% Load for ~1hr)
Max Load Temps: 57-60 Depending on Core (Prime95 Sensortest from RealTemp running small FFTs)

Room temp 24C
Prime95 to the max after 30 mins...

Nice! Looks really good! Stable cool temps are sweet! It's continued contributions like these that make the thread useful! Much appreciated!

I like to overclock but I don't like to overvolt. I know I could go higher but I don't care to. I'm a veteran PC gamer (30+ years) first and foremost and everything else second...;)

Hey guys, first post to the forum, as I built my first enthusiast PC just last week. I'm running a 4670k on an MSI Z87-G45 Mobo, with an H80i cooler. I feel as though my temps are high, and I'm wondering if I should re-seat my cooling block.

Load tests were done using Prime95 small FFTs, Ambient temp is between 22 and 25 degrees C. CPU clocked at 4.2 Ghz, Vcore is 1.16V

Idle: Cores average 39 degrees, up to 48 degrees max
Load: Hottest core 83, coolest core 70

Does it look as though my H80i is mounted correctly?

@matthallo

Welcome! I'm sorry to hear that you're getting such high temps. I was in the same boat just a few weeks ago. I thought I didn't seat my h80i properly or something but from what data I've gathered, after I updated my BIOS (but I have an ASUS and I noticed you said you have an MSI so that may not be relevant) I found that the voltages were lower and "tighter" (tighter as in stayed at consistent volts eg 1.1, 1.0, as low as .8 but rare). Before the update the voltage would fluctuate drastically (1.1-1.6) and my temps were high like yours. Perhaps, (please get 2nd opinions first perhaps with another person with a similar msi board) you can tweak your voltages lower and get similar improvements? I went from hitting high 80s to not passing the 60s C. I hope this helps but let us know how your research goes and remember to stay methodical (change 1 variable at a time so you know what effect it has directly or not) and be careful! Most of us aren't Bill Gates here and can't afford to just buy new cpus and mobos when we want! No matter what best of luck and continue to share that data!

@matthallo

Also, what is your configuration? See my first post where I've attached my setup's current airflow configuration as an example. Are you using the h80i as an exhaust or intake? If it's simple for you to do some pics added may help us help you. Anyone else have some feedback for matthalo? Please chime in!

jnewegger23 Thanks for the reply, but my bios is up to date. When overclocked, Vcore looks very close to what it is set at. I've seen people use much higher voltages and get lower temperatures, I know all chips are different, but I think a 4.2 GHZ overclock is a pretty modest OC, I shouldn't be seeing temps in the 80's!

EDIT: The H80i is configured as an intake, and I am getting decent airflow through the case, My liquid temps are generally low 30's, highest I've seen is 35 under full load for over an hour
