8700K- temps constantly over 90C at idle

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I recently did a reset of Windows because stuff was starting to lag and now my CPU is constantly at 90+ degree C with load barely at 3% (per NZXT Cam). Installed the CPU about 20 months ago with the current cooler (H60i) which largely no issues. This did start randomly happening before, but it was limited to temp at just startup being really high and then coming down after a couple hours and after a few days, it went away on its on. Now however it's constantly at 90 no matter what I do.S ometimes it drops to 50-60 for little bit but it never stays there long. Any advice would be appreciated! Probably will call Corsair/Intel Support tomorrow either way...Thanks in advance!

your heatsink is not working properly contact corsair for troubleshooting steps or an rma

Sure sounds to me like your pump died.

@Rx_Seraph Pump is dead,so call lagging was thermal throttling as CPU was overheating.Your AIO is still in warranty so RMA,just have a lots patience with corsair support,they are in process of migrating their system and responding to tickets slowly.I have requested RMA on Sunday and still have no answer.BTW All AIOs from corsair in last couple of years have usb connection in order to monitor and control pump,fans and water temperature.

EDIT: h60 is also a bit small for 8700k.If you can get 240mm AIO.

First of all, wow, you guys are hella fast at responding! and yeahhhh, I just touched the pump and it feels pretty warm so that might be it...thanks for the help everyone!!

As long as he isn’t over clocking or running AVX work loads a 120mm AIO should be fine. I use the H80i on my 9700k (granted it is a thicc radiator with a soldered ihs) AMD the temps are great. If he’s in a case with poor airflow 120mm AIO’s are a saving grace.

 

Just trying to give the small AIO’s some love in the face of all the hate they get.

With stock setting without any kind of serious load it i can probably cool it.I have corsair 360mm rad with 6 fans and it had hard time cooling 2700x running avx workloads.However it can cool 3700x quite nicely :D.For h60 anything over 65w is too much especially in a case of intel shady TPD ratings.

That’s interesting, I was upgrading my pc and initially went with the 3700x but it was running really hot (60+ idle, 75-80 gaming, 90 under load). I ended up returning it because I couldn’t get the thermals under control at a decent frequency in my itx case. Granted, I am using the evolv shift, and the AIO acts as my main air intake (I didn’t want a lot of hot air going into my GPU). I swapped to the 9700k which runs around 20c cooler overclocked to 4.9ghz all core. It’s not as fast multi tasking but I had to make the trade off to keep my case.

Well,if you went with asus mobo their PBO voltages are outrageous.Also ryzen power profile will keep cpu At 4.2-4.4ghz all the time.The thing is 3700x wont go over 90w.

I saw 130w with avx but 2700x was doing 188w so 130w is nice and cool.Granted if you try to push high manual overclock with with more than 1.3v and didn't change power profile in windows it would be hot while idle.Intel has better down-clocking.But under the same load at stock settings 3700x is much cooler as both have 3.6ghz all core boost only difference is 65w versus Intel's 95w.My h150i pro is intake as well with 3 corsair LL fans in front of rad and 3 corsair ML fans behind it.As it is 360mm water rarely goes above 34C,so it isnt so bad.I do also have 2 corsair LL in the bottom as intake and another 3 corsair ll on the top :D + 1 corsair LL140 in the back as exhaust.My zotac RTX 2080 AMP extreme edition happily clocks to 1990mhz and holding 70c with auto fans speeds. (~60%)

PS: i never saw 3700x going over 78C even with AVX workload.In CPU demanding titles like Division 2 it holds under 55C.Idle temps are higher than intel's anywhere between 35-45C.

I think it might be a difference in the coolers. You’re using a much more capable one. The problem I was having is voltage offset for X570 boards in bios is broken right now (optimum tech did a video on it) so I was having to reduce the voltage through Ryzen Master instead of the gigabyte bios. Stock the 3700x was running at over 1.45 volts when ever it was boosting, and this is pretty normal from what I’ve seen. I lowered it down to 1.35v but it wasn’t stable unless I limited the cpu frequency to 4.15 ghz. This lowered the temperatures by about 10c, but it also removed the power limit. When I was running furmark cpu burner ( on 6 of the 8 cores) the temps would keep climbing until the temp limit would cause the computer to shutdown. At least for now it seems like the ryzen 3000 are great for most people, just not SFF builds. Bitwit stuffed a 3900x in a Dan Case and had pretty much the same experience that I did.
