CPU running hot

STOOPID
 Share

So I recently built my new PC and I've noticed that the cpu is running at the mid 40s when idle. This seems a bit hot if its doing nothing, its a ryzen 2700x and I'm using the corsair h100i pro liquid cooler. My last cpu which was a i5-6500 with a hyper 212 evo idled at the mid 20s low 30s if anyone could give me some advice I'd appreciate that! Thanks

What's the temperature under full load?

It might be a poor mount also Ryzen is not a i5. Remount imo if the temps are unrealistic underload.

This probably isn't a cure for your temperature concerns, but have you also set the Minimum Processor State in your selected power plan to anything below 50%?  Anything higher than 50% will prevent the CPU from reaching all its power states.  And you can also use any power plan you'd like if you make the adjustment.  I use 20% and Ultimate Performance.

I've not got any of my games installed on it or benchmarks so I'm not sure rn its in the mid 50s.

I've not done anything of that sort, how do you do it?

It could be but when I tested the components and it was idling in the mid 30s in the BIOS. Yeah ik my old cpu was an intel i5-6500 and my new one is a ryzen 7 2700x

When in windows the cpu is never 100% idle as something is always putting a minimal load on it in the background. I would double check CPU voltage in BIOS as they seem to be pretty friggen high with Auto

Just checked the BIOS and the voltage was at 1.4, I'm presuming thats quite high??

Yeah see if you can get it boot and be stable at 1.3-1.35v That seems to be the min voltage for stock clocks.

I think my mount is bad, I turned off all fans and the temps stayed the same, I also maxed them out and the pump and still the same temps.

You don't have to worry about what voltages are running in BIOS.  

And to go to Edit Power Plan (you can search it in Windows toolbar) and change the pictured below:

Don't set a static voltage in BIOS.  Use an offset if you feel the need to manage it.  Setting a manual voltage will put the CPU into overclock mode and it won't go through all its power states.

 Offset or adaptive if its supported ;)

So remount and make certain you use enough thermal paste.

Yep will do, hate having to clean it though, last time I tried cleaning my cpu off the paste went everywhere..

It most likely is.  I prefer using a method like a cross or star to make certain it spreads.  I hate the idea that the entire IHS isn't covered.  It drives me bonkers and makes me remove the cooler and reapply.  

 

Also, is that an ASUS X470 Strix or Crosshair VII board?  

 

Edit:

How does the H100i attach to the stock cooler mount?

Ah yeah I’ve heard of that sort of cross method, I hate messing with the cpu scares me ahaha. And yeah it is that board.

How does the H100i attach via that stock cooler mounting bracket?  I thought it would use the standard Asetek mount.  

 

And you should try out the Performance Enhancer level 3 in the BIOS.  You can use that and then set load line calibration to level 4 and combine that with a negative VCORE offset of around .068V~.075V and be stable.  It will  keep the highest voltages below 1.5V and remain stable.  It isn't necessary, but it's a nice touch.  Also, set SOC to 1.1V.

It's ok, both boards have the feature so yeah.

Must of miss read it! The cooler has these weird clips that attach onto the standard mounting bracket. Update still having the same issue after re mounting it.

Here’s a picture of the application of the paste for the second mount

That looks like a perfect amount then.  And now I can see how that mount works on the H100i.  I've not seen that before.

It’s still doing that weird wavelike pattern.. I loaded up cs go and it flattened out in the middle..

Then it might be the CPU staying within its FIT parameters for PBO.  If temps go up it will reduce speed and when it cools a little it increases speed.  If you use Performance Enhancer Level 3 it is designed to ignore the FIT parameters to a certain degree and will hold a constant all core speed and not throttle/down clock.

Could you explain that a bit more? What’s FIT parameters for PBO?
