i do not understand why it is running at 70C idle and under about 10% load 91C my pump and fans are working fine too...
More about70c idle temp 3930k p9x79 h100i
70c Idle? o.o
Did you seat the CPU correctly? Make sure the H100i pump is actually working as well, and plugged into CPU_FAN.
Go into the BIOS and let us know what temperatures it is reporting.
This may just be a faulty thermal reader, but I havent heard of idle temps that high ever.
Did you apply thermal paste? If so, how much?
I did use the pre-applied thermal paste as I did not have extra on hand and in the bios the system is still reporting the same temperatures. the cpu is seated correctly and the h100i has water flowing through the tubes
