H100i RGB Platinum 50c idle | 65c load?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Is this normal for the 3600x? I had a 4690k before I upgraded to a 3600x and that was running at like 35c on idle with intels stock cooler and now with this pretty expensive aio I feel i'm not getting what I should be, i'm thinking of returning it (if I can because the pre-applied thermal paste will have been used) and getting a cheaper air cooler instead like a dark rock pro 4. Thoughts?

Judging by 'cheaper air cooler like Dark Rock Pro4' i'd assume you got it for 100$+ which isn't a good price for 240mm AIO but these thermals look decent, you know, it depends on the fan curve and you can't compare two different CPUs with two different coolers.


Tag or quote me so i see your reply

I got the 115i I get 45 idle 55 load so yea that’s prob about right.


Remember to give me those smiley face things or tick or the i if i do a good post.

Team Blue, so understand I will be unreasonable to Intel V AMD Arguments even if i ever buy a AMD rig, i will still be anti AMD. Me saying AMD is OK is a big thing to me so be happy and go away.

3600 has 4 more cores and 8 more threads than your last cpu to cool. The idle seems a little High, but not at full load. But its all well within the lower side of things

Thanks for clearing it up, and I know I really shouldn't compare the performance of the cooling with a 4th gen intel cpu like that, my bad. Images are corsairs fan curve profiles that they're set to and sys 1 is a 140mm exhaust and sys 3 & 4 are 140mm intakes. I also notice a different reading for the CPU fan compared to what is shown on iCUE which I don't quite know the reason why. I also took a photo of my radiator on the top. There's a space on top where there is no dust filter or anything to stop dust from coming in that I circled in red, should I order some sort of custom dust filter or DIY to remedy it? Sorry for all the questions I just threw at you, thanks for the help.

Fan 1/2 in iCUE are the fans plugged into the fan splitter coming from the cooler. 

Stick to one monitoring program if possible. Using more than one can result in conflicts and some programs can cause the cpu to boost. Your temps seem great. What you're reporting as idle probably isn't idle but instead the cpu boosting. I recommend using Ryzen Master instead.
