    Asus Maximus Gene VIII, mobo temp high on Corsair H115i

    Hi

    We've been building Identical systems for the past 4 months with the following specifications

    i7 6700K
    DDR 4 memory
    Asus Maximus Gene VIII
    Corsair H110
    256 SSD
    1TB HDD
    Quadro K2200
    Win7 Pro

    The Corsair H110 recently EOL (End of life) and we decided to with the new Corsair H115i

    We noticed in all builds on stock settings and using this new cooler
    it makes the mobo temp on the BIOS to shoot close to 60 deg on idle, which is a critical
    default BIOS version 1401

    We tried updating the BIOS to its latest but still the same.

    We tried to compare it with the old build with H110, at start up mobo temp starts at around 29 deg and after few minutes went to around 32 to 33 Deg.

    We can't figure out why

    Please let us know if experience the same issue, we highly appreciate if you can give us some suggestions

    Hi aktivexkontrol,

    The fans bundled with the Corsair H115i draws 0.7A of current from each fan header, while their previous generation fans (bundled with Corsair H110) draw 0.4A from each fan headers they are connected to.
    In regular designs, each fan headers are designed to work with fans up to 1A, and the current draw will increase as the fans get managed.
    The motherboard temperature sensor is placed right next to the CHA_FAN3 header, suppose this is what's causing the difference.

    We will suggest to keep some constant airflow around the PCH area if you are worried about this temperature.

    Let us know if any further questions.
