    Crosshair V Formula-Z, FX9370, and corsair h100i heating up too fast

    So recently this past few weeks my CPU heats up too fast. When I first installed the system May 2014, it would be a consistent 35 degrees and peak maybe 50 when running multiple programs and games. Now I boot the pc up and it idles in the mid 40s and running even firefox or itunes will bump it up to the 60s, and pretty soon I get a 65 degree warning (that's what it's set to currently) and the pc does start to slow down some. The cpu is running at stock speed.

    I have done a few actions trying to troubleshoot it:
    • Removed the corsair h100i watercooler and re-applied the thermal paste
    • Cleaned all fans and radiators
    • Made sure I had no malicious programs causing the cpu to run at abnormally high rates.


    It runs stable in terms of what it previously did, with the only main issue being it's very rapid temp rises to 65+. I am hoping it's something as simple as the h100i is going bad and not the cpu.

    Right now my task manager says it's using only 4-8% of the CPU right now and it is staying at 49 degrees.

    While we wait for someone more knowledgeable to come along, have you tried hooking up Corsair Link and making sure that the pump is actually running? It will give you a value in the Corsair Link software

    No not yet. It's on my to-do list today. I think I have to sacrifice a usb port somewhere. (and find the cable for it).
    Wouldn't it heat up even faster if it wasn't running the pump?


    Edit: Ok, found the cable, installed it. Not sure if it changed anything though.

    They're not even the same temps listed for the CPU.

    How is the radiator mounted? I have read about folks mounting them on the case roof, fittings down, and having a slow leak (so slow that no droplets have a chance to form before evaporation).

    I'd remove the radiator and shake it a little to see how much fluid is in the system.

    It is also possible that the radiator has somehow become clogged (I have no idea how this would happen in an H100i), so you might listen to the pump to see if it sounds like it's straining.

    Also, once the CPU heats up, feel the air leaving the radiator for temperature difference. It should be noticeably warmer once the system has reached a thermal equilibrium point.

    Z

    Edit: It is also possible that your fan-speed profile has somehow been changed (software can do weird stuff sometimes for absolutely no reason).
    Resistance is futile (at <1 Ohm).

    It's currently on the roof. I will check the fluid level, although when I took it off yesterday I didn't hear any water-flowly like sound as if it had lost any fluid. I doubt clogging is the issue. The radiator and tubes, and the pump itself are all simply warm. Nothing near hot. When testing the CPU being hot and the air temp coming out of the radiator, it didn't actually change much if at all.

    I will likely go ahead and purchase a pump and block for my cpu though to add to my GPU set that's already in place.

    My ASUS AI Suite seems to constantly read the CPU as 10 degrees higher than the Corsair Link. That is really confusing and I am not sure which one is correct.

    Corsair link is reading the core temperature, where AI suite is reading the socket temperature. 1.536 is alot for the h100i to handle barely. Did you add anything to your system that would prevent airflow around the VRM's and Northbridge. If you can cool the VRM's with active cooling, your socket temps will come down some. That being said, I agree with Dr. about evaporation. Also the mounting for those things just suck ( I used to own one).
    Chris...Have a nice day.

    I agree with chris about the mounting. It is a lot of trouble to get it to fit nicely with my NZXT H440 case, even in my Corsair 600T case it didn't want to play nice. I do have a good mount for it now on the roof.

    Perhaps there is a slow leak, we can't say for certain but personally I'd buy a replacement H100i or better to test it out. I think now you can find the new series of Corsair AIO for the same price as what you probably paid for the H100i, they boast far superior cooling performance. The models are "H100i GT AIO" and "H100i GTX" which the latter is more comparable to what you currently own.

    As stated, there is a difference between socket and core temp......i personally monitor coretemp and if that exceeds 65C i know I'm in trouble. With you SO close from JUST playing a game, bothers me. So something is certainly going on here.

    Throw a new cooler on to eliminate what we suspect is the failing component.

    Ok. news update. Since my previous post, my AI Suite has given me two abnormal warning flashes, that were a split second since it was normalized by the time I opened it up to look. The first one said that my +12v had a reading of 0.00, meaning no power. Then today I got a a different thing giving an overly high reading of 1.524 or close to that on my NB. Which is abnormally high to a point that it's bad.

    Now, in the past I had a boot-up problem that I never did solve, and haven't seen a re-occurance in a month:
    https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...-code-00-or-06

    Could the mobo have a fault somewhere that is causing all these issues?

    In terms of a replacement h100i, I'll just get custom water block, and a second pump and add it to the system I already have in-place for my gpu (they're on their own custom water cooling loop), and create a second loop. I already have a spare radiator for it and space in the top of my NZXT 810 Switch.

    Honestly...IMO..AI suite is crap..lol! Those warning flashes happen for just about everybody. I UN-installed it and never looked back. Have you checked to see if your boot drive is failing? Right click on your boot drive, click properties, click tools, click error check. It will also run a check on boot drive before booting into windows...it may take some time to complete checks.
    Chris...Have a nice day.

    You shouldnt be using two separate programs to control your fans. 100% remove/uninstall ai and make sure link is hooked up via spec - fyi if you try and reset the link and have it rediscover all the hardware

    Uninstall the Corsair Link software through Windows Control Panel
    Go to file explorer, enable "Show hidden files, folder and drives"
    Delete the following directory: C:\Users\"System name"\AppData\Roaming\Corsair
    (This directory is also used to store custom profiles for other Corsair products. You may want to save this directory on a different location so you won’t lose other profiles)
    Restart your system
    Install the new Corsair Link software
