CPU overheating out of nowhere

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all, got a bit of a head scratcher here... Not even sure if this is the right place to post this thread but here goes. About a week ago I noticed my CPU was overheating, reaching 80c while playing Warzone, I figured it just needed some fresh thermal paste so I cleaned it up and put some on, problem solved... Until last night. I was playing Warzone and my CPU was reaching 90c and the usage was at 100%... The liquid in the AIO tubes is really hot but the radiator is cool, but I can hear the liquid flowing. The high usage is really bugging me too, usually it hovers around 40-50%.

 

I did a MalwareBytes scan and nothing came up. I'm really not sure if this is hardware or software issue.

 

CPU is an i7 3930k and the AIO is a Corsair H105.

Does this high cpu usage come while doing any other thing?

So far it's only when Warzone is open, but idle temps are hotter than usual. I will open up another game now and have a look.

Check the cpu voltage in the BIOS. Also make sure the AIO is actually on right. Maybe it came loose?

Vcore is at 1.32, been running it like this for 6-7 years. I actually had the same thought about the AIO and redid everything again.

radiator is cool means the hot water isnt reaching there

possibly dead pump?


Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

I can hear water flowing but maybe it's just degraded over time and can't get the job done.

First Warzone is high CPU intensive game, second its possible that you have that high temps something is wrong With your Pump or changes in Bios

Nothing changed in the bios, before making this post I even loaded my saved bios profile and looked through it making sure everything looked right. I just played a quick game of Warzone and the temp was 90c, just 1c off of TjMax. My guess is when it throttles at 91c, the cores have to work harder to make up for lost clock speed?

I dunno now. I can feel the hot liquid go all the way up the tube, and the other tube is bringing cool liquid down... Wtf is going on... I'm idling at 80c

possibly not enough liquid to go around

 

if you tilt the radiator/case with radiator, does it feel/sound empty?

 

or pump is not strong enough to pump the liquid at a fast enough rate, or it's jammed somewhere

not really, I can feel a decent flow (seems good to me anyway) through both tubes. I have the pump plugged into my CPU_Fan header and I read the RPM in the bios, it's at 1829RPM, which apparently seems to be the max RPM for this AIO. Could my thermal paste just be shit? I've had it sitting in my cupboard in a tupperware container for about a year, maybe more.

Setup Pump on 50% and going 100% to 100c while your fans goes always 25% faster from pump.

i kept my thermal paste for like 2 years and it's still fine

probably only a problem if you have crappy paste and didnt cover it with the included covers on the nozzle.

 

doesnt explain why one tube is hot while one is cold though, if thermal paste is bad, both tube would feel cool since little heat is being transfered

im still sticking with the insufficient flow rate theory, because both tube should feel warm, not one cold one warm.

Dude I don't fucking know what's going on lol. I just loaded up an ooold BIOS profile with the only (seemingly) difference of clock speed at 3.8GHz from 4GHz, and the Vcore at 1.29 from 1.32 and now it's 60c in Warzone... Am I losing my mind? Could the temp censor in the CPU be fucked? I've literally made no changes in the BIOS recently, and certainly none that would ramp up the temps to what they were.

About 5-6 years old. I somehow fixed the issue for now though. We'll see what happens I suppose.

Agreed, especially as idle temps are high. 

 

One pipe really hot, one cold with a cold radiator is not a good sign.

 

You may also have a temp censor issue.
