Hi all,

 

I have my 6700k running at extreme temperatures and suspect it might be something to do with the aio pump but it still seems a little extreme to me.

 

once the system has been running it will sit at 75-95*C idle with 2% load, fans in the Corsair H115 running at speeds that resemble a helicopter taking off, let alone browsing the net and watching YouTube.

 

sometimes I can’t get past the bios screen because it’s too hot to boot (if I restart mid session)

 

I have put new thermal thermal grizzly paste on multiple times, repositioned fan configuration (every fan is working) , loaded optimised defaults in asus bios (to remove overclocks).

 

is it likely that this is just a aio pump problem? Could it be the cause of this much heat? If I get a cheap air cooler to test would this see drastic results results turn to normal on idle?

 

not sure if I should sink money into a new aio/air cooler or get a new cpu /mobo combo (since this is now a secondary computer)

 

thanks in advance 

 

cheers

Chris

can you rma the cooler? This is almost definitly the pump.

On the AIO, are both tubes (inlet and outlet) feel warm to the touch? Does one tube feel hotter than the other? Are you sure the pump header is plugged in since you've been reattaching the pump to the CPU with new thermal paste?

Do you have the AIO plugged into a case fan port? You want to make sure the pump is getting 12 V, many motherboards will reduce fan voltage for speed control on 3-pin fans.

Was plugged into CPU fan because system wouldn’t run when plugged into water cooler option but it’s only a 3 pin plug regardless, but have swapped it to the water cooler and moved one of the fans to the cpu fan slot and will test it out
