Overheating and throthling on idle 9900k

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, i'm assembling a work pc and I'm having issues with my 9900k thermal throttling right from boot. In bios is slowly climbs from 30°c all the way to 90°c. I thought it might be the second hand watercooler Be Quiet 240 silent loop Amazon tried to scam me with that's defective. Today i put on my private Deepcool captain 240 ex and it's exactly the same thing. I'm 100% sure this cooler is working. I'm stumped, any idea's anyone?

 

Spec list:

 

i9 9900k

8gig ram (will be 16 once i get the damn thing working correctly)

Gigabyte Z390 aorus pro, flashed on the latest bios

Be Quiet psu 650 watt gold.

Be Quiet 240 silent loop Deepcool captain 240 ex

 

Screenshot shows 64°c while the pc was on for less than 30 seconds. Sidenote: the pc case is completely open, no body panels attached.

Did you forget to remove the thin plastic film from the bottom of the waterblock?

You have to use thermal paste between the IHS and the cooler..

Deepcool waterblock has been used for nearly 2 years, seems very unlikely

Right. The only conclusion I can draw from the information that has been provided is that your CPU thermal readers might be borked. If not that, then I don't know.

Okay I feel sort of silly, i forgot to plug in the Pump indeed. My silly mistake. Though the old pump from amazon really must have been defective cuz i'm sure that pump was plugged in. Been building pc’s for years. What a rookie mistake haha. Now it’s sitting comfy at 25c idle. Thank you guys, topic closed.

Don't worry mate, we all have those moments. I had one earlier where I thought my PSU was defective because I didn't plug in the 24pin correctly (It's a 20+4pin, so it's annoying).

Welcome to PC building!
