Cinebench benchmarks drop

Hi guy,

I recently replaced my corsair h100i v2 to nzxt x52 and after that i ran the benchmark and noticed a big difference in benchmarks. I did not changed anything on my system, just replaced the water cooler. The temps are okay, almost identical to when i have the h100i. Im not sure why this is happening. If you can help me that would be great.

  1. Can someone please help me with this?

  2. Have you tried running another benchamarking software as well to see if maybe this one is giving you bad readings? Run the test with your current software as well, and just see if the numbers have changed at all.

    Havent tried that and I dont have the h100i v2 anymore. I noticed also the fps drop in the games that i am playing. This is the only benchmarking tool that i used so if i ran another benchmarking tool i will not know the difference between now and before.

  4. I would suggest using a program like HWMonitor to keep an eye on your temps to make sure those aren't climbing above where you want them. It honestly sounds like your CPU is overheating somehow, since the only thing you have changed is the cooler on it.

    Yes, i am currently using the hwmonitor software as i ran the benchmark and highest temps for both cpu and gpu are just below 65c. This does not mean that it is overheating right or it is giving me a bad reading?

  6. 65c is a bit high, but not to the point where I would be concerned with a failure. Not sure what is going on there, tbh. Have there been any software updates or anything else that have happened shortly before/after the cooler swap?

    I think this is the reason why. It is taking up so much of my cpu usage.
    How do i make this stop?

  8. You need to find which process(es) are using the most CPU and see if you can "End task" on them. You should be able to sort by CPU usage (or Memory/Disk/Network) by clicking on the "CPU" (or "Memory"/"Disk"/"Network") headers at the top. Then you will be able to see what is causing your CPU usage to spike.
