Corsair H100 high idle temps
Yesterday I installed my new H100. There was a slight delay since the first unit was DOA. I had to return it.
But now I have installed it and I am not all that impressed?
Here are the temps I am recording with coretemp.
The load temp was achieved by running IntelBurnTest with the standard stress level 10 times.
It completed without error but the temperature is high.
It isn't much better than my old HSF the Coolermaster V8. It's quieter though. :)
And here is a screenshot from CPU-Z in case any further info regarding the CPU is needed.
Did I have too high expectations many reviews have praised the H100?
The CM V8 I replaced is nothing more than a mediocre HSF in a big package. ;)
