Cooling issues with core i9 9900k

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hi guys,
after recently upgrading my motherboard and cpu and installed h100igtx on my new system and saw my temperatures climb up to 100C at startup or at anyload. i checked the pump temperature and its reports at about 50-53~ and goes down slowly once load is off the cpu. however i dont feel any warm air through the radiators. when i touch the pipe(hose) one of them do feel warm enough and other one is cold. the pump shows 2600-3000 RPM from Corsair link but pump is not hot to touch

i have tried re seating the cooler onto cpu applied thermal paste 3 times. Tried to press on pump firmly to see if it make changes to temperature but it had no effect. Getting really frustrated on what could be the problem. Fans are running on 100% as well.

When i took off the cooler after applying paste it looked something like this.



CPU is i9 9900k stock clocks and z390 auros master motherboard
