I'm having some issues with my Corsair H100i I just bought a Intel i7 4770k LGA 1150 with a Maximus Vi extreme mobo.

I only have a very mild overclock at 4.2 GHZ @ 1.168 volts and the temperatures are insane!


Sitting at idle I'm getting about 56-60 degrees (Celsius of course)
Under load running prime95 I max out at 109 degrees on the hottest core (106 second hottest)

Admittedly I used the stock thermal application with the H100i and it seemed like I was getting horrible contact so round two and three I used my own paste by thermaltake and remounted the cooler. The numbers remain consistent.

Could I still have bad contact? I'm not really a fan of the mounting system Corsair chose to implement.
Has the Haswell IHS been known for being faulty. (I believe IVY bridge did have that problem.)

any ideas?




**SORRY FOLKS A BIT OF AN EDIT** I'm running 1.168 volts not 1.68v my appologies for the confusion.

1.68v? That seems a bit excessive, and appears to be your issue. I have seen people running 1.3v @ 4.5GHz easily on that.
Try turning down the voltage and see if that helps, which is should.

You are literally frying your CPU. Like, I expect it to die. Really badly. You might have knocked a few years off your CPU, mobo and PSU. Try 1.3vcore.

Hm...sounds to me like your pump might be dead?
Can you check this?

Same here after the edit. I've heard of a lot of the H100 series pump's failing.
