Cooling with the Corsair H100i v2 and i7 7700k
I've been cooling with this aio for about a year. I recently got the 7700k and the msi z270 m5 gaming. My temps have been around 45 celsius at idle. Is this normal? I know kaby lake is a hot chip but that seems a little high to me, I could be wrong. In games im usually around 70-80 celsius. I used to get lower temps with the 4790k and the same aio.
thing is if you look here at h100 coolers you see a lot of high temp threads on them - almost makes me think a good air cooler is just as good if not better ?? [for a lot less money]
maybe just to add if you got good temps with the 4790 may be a goofed mounting job? not like I never had to remount a cooler if not satisfied with the temps I get ? too tight too loose tightened crooked / uneven ??? too little / too much paste , ect....
I do see a few guys saying there 7700 are a tad bit hotter then there haswells were anyway and a bit harder to cool them . [???]
I'd first redo the mounting to insure its all correct . like a cooler that needs lapping or any thing off can be the diff between a great cooling and not so great - theres more to it then just slapping a cooler on and expecting it to be fully efficient
