Very high temps i5 4670k on h80i

I ordered an h80i about a week ago, and installed it. My temps were 50 idle and 80-90 load on stock clocks, and voltages. I then reseated it several times with different paste, and made sure it was tight, and made sure the fans were blowing in the same direction, but I still got the same temperatures. I then replaced it for a new one, and still i get the same results. Also if it matters corsair link does not detect it. Is there a fix to this problem? My old h60 got way better temperatures than this

edit: the motherboard is msi z87-g41

  1. What is your motherboard? sounds like your not pumping or pumping too slow.
  2. Stock voltages (Auto) can actually be pretty high, I remember seeing 1.244 in CPU-Z before I started overclocking.

    With the pump maxed and a single fan set to 80% or so I still reach 80+ degrees @ 1.238 volts @ 4.3Ghz and it is quite loud. The h80i just isn't enough to keep up with Haswell. I would call it adequate.

    Try setting your voltage manually to 1.2 or less and see if your machine is stable.

    Better temps on the same CPU, or was it an IB or SB CPU?

    If it was an IB or SB CPU, then the difference is that your 4670k runs about 15-20C hotter than the older chips.

    I used my h60 on the same cpu. I would never go above 70 degrees when overclocked on 1.15v at 4.4ghz with the h60. But apparently the h80i with a double thick rad, and 2 fans goes above 90 on stock clocks

    Overclocked or no? I'm on air (Corsair A70) overclocked to 4.2 and 1.21 volts with idle at 35ish and load upto 75ish. You should be on par with that and if you haven't oc'd yet then it should be a bit less. So I'd say something is defective with your cooler

    It is not overclocked.
  7. If link doesn't recognize it that may be your culprit. Make sure all your connections are in place, do you have a way to check fan speeds? It may be that your fans are running really slow or the pump itself is not going. If all else fails you might want to look into the H90 with a 120mm to 140mm adapter if your case doesn't have a 140mm slot. It doesn't have the link software so you just hook up the power and let it go.

    I'd retrun it then. It should be a dead giveaway that it's broken if your h60 was getting better temps

    Ok. I geuss I was just unlucky getting 2 defects in a row

    Checklist:

    1. Latest firmware flashed.

    2. Pump connected and making noise (can feel it vibrating?)

    3. Corsair LINK software installed.

    4. TEST first with fan profile on "MAXIMUM RPM" to ensure you can hear the fans being loud then test to see if it runs cool.
    *Make sure BOTH FANS are spinning.

    Check out the reviews, nothing but problems with the h80i. I wanted it buy, had to stay away. Settled for http://www.asetek.com/press-room/news/301-asetek-liquid-cooling-technology-chosen-for-intelr-thermal-solution-rts2011lc-.html The BEST money I ever spent. 4770k @75c
