i have a 3570k and antec 620 kuhler. my problem is that just doing daily things like this post it is at 1.6ghz and is 74c. I know this is way to hot and using and using ai suite to configure chassis fans at 60% and cpu at 80%. Does anyone no how i can keep cooler with out spending money or have a tractor next to me. rest of system at 30c - 45c

case nzxt phantom 410

fan config
2x 120mm front intake
2x 140mm top exhaust
1x 120mm rear intake rad fan nf-p12

cpu=3570k
cpu cooler=Antec 620 kuhler

It sounds like it's throttleing the speeds because of the heat. I would make sure the exaust/rad fan is working and make sure he pump is working. Also make sure the water block is seated right.

Turn on the computer and take off the side panel. Your computer should look something like this:



The red arrow shows the fan. Make sure it is spinning and also make sure it is exausting and not intaking air.

The blue triangle shows the CPU water block. Check to make sure the block looks like it's seated right and is fully screwed down. There shouldn't be and play. Also you should be able to hear if the pump is working or not.

Could it be the kuhler 620 configuration problem? your pc is irregularly overheating. I don't have the same cooler but i do have the same brand as you.

Is it at 65 on idle or under load? What are you using to measure the temps?

Download CPUID HWMonitor an see what that says. It could be a faulty reading or faulty sensor.

To post a picture in a post like I did you have to host the picture on a website like photobucket then copy the IMG code they give you and paste it on the post.

Put the radiator against the case and put that noctua fan on the front.

You can try what a muffin said and see if that helps. You can also take off the waterblock, re-apply themal paste and try if that helps at all.

ok i'm going to put on a new layer of thermal compound i have some mx-4. my fan is not connected because it is a 4pin and the kuhler has a 3pin and the fan that came with it is too loud.

Which fan is not connected? If the main fan isn't connected while you were doing this test that could be why it's running so hot.

no the noctua is plugged into the motherboard and is set quite high speed its not plugged into the 620 kuhler itself because it does not support 4pin

Even if the fan is not attached or operate at all, it shouldn't running in that high temp. Most likely the pump is faulty which could explain the high temp. RMA it right away.

Unless you forgot to removed the clear plastic cover on the antec 620 kuhler CPU block which I doubt you did.
