Idle temps for i7-6700k AIO cooled high?

1 minute ago, r1Ns3 said:

i took the top off, the radiator is not hot, basically room temp. I dont know if there is sound, I can not hear it, the fans go as low as 40% and no lower. I do not hear water moving around

Then either the pump has died (happens often with AIO's),

or the thermal paste has gone bad, and needs replacing.

 

I recommend repasting first, see if that does anything, if it doesn't then the pump probably is at fault.

My CPU seems like really high for idle, running just chrome and discord etc, at about 20% usage not overclocked the cores go anywhere from 45-60 degrees celsius. 

My AIO water cooler is H100i corsair, I have had this pc for nearly 2 years now and I don't think it has been like this for long.

Could this be because I haven't cleaned my PC in a while? the fans are running at constant 80% and pump is on performance mode...

 

Does it have anything to do with this?

Or is it anything to do with power settings?

The GPU temps are fine so I do not know why this is being so weird.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

EDIT: FIXED - dead pump or evaporated liquid. Replaced thermal paste, still overheated, radiator is dead cold while cpu is burning. Put in a noctua air cooler and bam, 70 under 100% load. thanks to all that help.

well if your High Performance profile, your CPU is running at max speed 4.0+ GHz at all times, even when it is no needed (e.g. idling on Desktop with little to nothing open).

 

Change your power settings to Balance Mode, and see if you see any significant difference in temperatures.

 

Otherwise, if you haven't cleaned off / replace the thermal paste since you first mounted the H100i, then it may be due time to do some regular maintenance.

What is the temp under load?

Temp under 100% load using intelburner is 100 degrees celsius

Well there you have it, there is absolutely something wrong with your cooler.

 

Do you feel the water move around if you touch the tubes?

 

Have you tried remounting the cpu block and repasting it?

I just opened the case, how do you tell if there is liquid moving? I don't know if there is or if there is not!?

Do the tubes vibrate etc? Or are they completely still?

If you touch the radiator is it hot?

 

Also do you hear noise coming from the cpu block? (is the pump working)

 

Do you hear water moving around?

 

Put the fan speed to something like 10-20% to hear better.

Then either the pump has died (happens often with AIO's),

or the thermal paste has gone bad, and needs replacing.

 

I recommend repasting first, see if that does anything, if it doesn't then the pump probably is at fault.
