So I have my build put together now right. I’m typing on it right now. But… I’m fighting with it. I’m currently facing a temperature issue that was unexpected to say the least.
Corsair H100i V2 (push pull, fans on both side of rad)
16GB LPX Ram (3000)
X470 Gigabyte Aorus Ultra Gaming
Nvidia GTX 970
Nvidia Grid K2
Now, I’m not sure why it would over heat, but I have had the CPU spike to 90 degrees solid. So I took the cold plate off, re applied paste, and put it back, and its better, but its still not stable. Its about stable at 42 degrees from what I can tell in bios, but in windows 10 the temp spikes. I literally just yoinked the SSD out of my MSI laptop with an i7 6700 and booted it up. Startup repair keeps opening, so I’m a little curious if a windows reinstall will dho the trick. I definitely can’t game on this, nor do I want to try.
What do you guys think? Theres not enough paste to insulate the chip, I believe the cold plate is all the way applied as the h100i mount and kit say use the stock backplate that comes with your mobo, and I just checked by pushing on the cooler and the temps were still going up and down erratically.
Could my chip be bad? Reinstall windows?
