    Attention CPU idling at 84c instead of 29c. Ideas?

    Hey Guys,

    Two weeks ago I was developing my Android application in Android Studio and I saved my app and boom, computer turns off!

    CPU idling at 84c instead of 29c - This takes between 30 seconds and two minutes.

    My CPU is cooled by a Corsair H80i. I have disconnected and reconnected my CPU and cables. I have cleaned the CPU and applied new paste and reattached the cooler.

    CPU temp = 74-84c.


    Does anyone have any ideas? I'm stumped.

    Does the heat sink feel hot, is the heat sink's fan working as it should does it speed up as the CPU get's hotter

    EDIT:- Just looked up the cooler and it's a water cooler (I have never used one) is the water being pumped round the cooler and does the block feel hot is their still liquid in the cooler?

    Can you hear the pump working? I've got an Antec sealed liquid cooler, I have read they may not be as efficient as a fan but I don't push my system really. What temps should the processor run at?

    go back to a good heat sink & fan, never trusted the low end water coolers, seen a lot fail over the last year.
    you may need a bigger Rad with extra fans or the CPU is starting to fail maybe

    If it was working in the current setup and then it stopped working and you didn't change anything I'd say the pump is faulty. sounds like it just stopped pushing the liquid round the loop.

    Could be worth checking it is still seated properly(but I doubt that would be the issue)

    Can you test it with the original Air cooler just to rule out a faulty sensor?

    Have replaced a few water cooled system in the last couple of years for customers where they were sealed units that apparently never ran dry.
    After replacing with a typical air cooled setup I opened said sealed unit to find it was bone dry.

    This I found in 3 different systems . Honestly couldn't remember the make but it was a recognised brand.

    Doesn't feel warm and the fan is pulling in tons of cold air.

    Honestly, I'm not sure what it is meant to sound like.

    Probably Corsair. It's a sealed unit so can't open it without voiding the warranty.

    My computer CPU is "overclocked" in the BIOS, so you would expect higher temperatures, but this is not always case.

    Minimum is about 28ºC - however, when running a high load I'm looking at temperatures at 49ºC to about 55ºC.

    When people state that overclocking causes a strain on components, I would agree with them. I go through at least one PSU a year. I've got a Cosair 1.3Kw PSU and replaced that about June last year, the new one is already making the dreaded scrapping noise.

    You could try the following Microsoft Utlities from TechNet.

    Process Explorer

    Process Monitor

    Both programs should help you find whats causing the high temperature.

    100% it's your pump!
    Mine went just after Xmas, my tubes also had signs of cracking and I took pictures and RMA'd my H80i with Corsair and they replaced it with the new H80i GT.
    The CPU Cooler attached to the CPU has a pump in it, if you put your finger on it gently, you can feel it.

    Go here -

    Start a ticket and upload proof of purchase and they'll replace it.
    Just out of interest, what are you using to find your temperatures? Corsair Link?

    In Corsair Link, your pump will be shown... probably 0 rpm.

    I've a AMD FX-8350 that idles around 40°C using my H80i GT.

    As I can't find my receipt, Corsair are refusing to fix their equipment so I have to buy new today. I have narrowed it down to the following:

    My Case can fit four fans at the top - Fractal Design R2 but I'm looking to downsize to theiir Node 804 which can hold four 120/140mm.
    So my short list is:


    Corsair Hydro H100i v2 - 2x 120mm
    = £95.99 inc [delivery for the 14th - Amazon Prime]. Maplins = £104.99


    Corsair H110i v2 280mm rad and 2x 140mm fans - £95.94


    Corsair hydro h110 gt £106.98


    Thermaltake water 3.0 - 3x 120mm - £102.95 - £139.99 - Depending on RGB LEDS.


    ID cooling Frostflow 240l - 2x 120mm - £79.99


    Which would you choose and why?

    What CPU are you using? Watercooling isn't really necessary most of the time, I mean it sure does look pretty, but stick to air unless you're running an insane overclock.

    Also, what case is it sitting in?

    As Ganty says don't bother and get a normal heat sink and fan

    i7-3820 - from memory. Fractal Design R2 but I want to downsize next month.

    But in theory it will be cooler?

    What are you doing on the PC that needs liquid cooling?

    I've used Noctua fans and coolers for years and they can keep up with the best AOI's .

    Having a Carsair pump also fail, i would also strongly suggest its that. Check the pumps rpm in bios. Mine was either at 0 or spinning slow.

    If u bought it online youll have a purchase history you can use as proof. Alternatively, find someone who has and use there receipt as proof.

    Water cooling your CPU is the equivalent of putting a spoiler on a Corsa ;-)
