Hello! I just got into the realm of overclocking and decided to pick up a Corsair H100i v2 as the stock cooler simply wasn’t going to cut it for any type of overclocking.
I installed my H100i v2 in the front of my Corsair 400C and was hyped to get to overclocking, I noticed my idle temps were at 30 C – a whole 15 degrees difference from the Wraith Spire! However the moment I started to overclock my temps got really hot and I’m wondering if it’s a cooler issue or an installation issue.
After running AIDA64 Stress Test for not even 20 seconds I was hitting 81 C and climbing. I have checked, my fans are pulling intake from the front of the case and they are both operational. The tubing was giving me issues during building so the block is installed upside down instead of right side up. Could that be the issue? Any insight is much appreciated!
Edit: I am using HWMonitor to check temps.
