Hello, I am currently running an FX-8350 with a CM hyper 212 evo and I was wondering how good the corsair h100i is? I have heard it is loud but also does a good job cooling, and I was thinking about buying it in a few weeks. could I use the top fan on my case (NZXT Phantom 410) and the hyper 212 fans to replace the corsair ones and be quieter? is it worth the money (89.99 on amazon I think)? Thank You
I have a m5a99fx pro r2.0 MOBO, I have been having problems with socket temp but core temp is fine, would the h100i fix this?
I know exactly what you mean. Happened to me with my M5A99X EVO R2.0 (About equal, but x8 x8 instead of x16 x16). What I did to combat it was take the stock cooler's fan and tape it to the back of the motherboard. Ghetto rig that thing. It helped bring my temps down from 75 C on the socket @ 4.2 GHz @ 1.35 V to 57 C. Stopped all throttling.
yeah unfortunately my dad isn't very comfortable with using tape... he thinks its too risky.... what I was wondering however was if the h100i could keep socket temps down... also paying 90$ I expect it to keep it down at around 5 ghz.... I essentially want to turn my fx-8350 into a 9590
