I'm using water cooler Seidon 120v and 3 More coolers (1 140mm and 2 120mm) in max capacity and still hot. What can I do?
So you have a single rad, with 3 fans? Sorry im lost.
If your CPU is 55oc on idle, it is most likely you thermal paste isn't on right. if your temps jump to say 60 in a second, then this would make sense. The pumps working yeah?
Sorry, bad explained :/, water cooler seidon 120 + 3 Collers in the case... And I saw that the problem its the thermal paste.. thx for help
Cool, please change your question to answered and tick any replies that were helpful as helpful to help other. (help help help help )
I'm not sure if you somehow put three / two different size fans on a single aio or expanded the aio , either of these will have negative effects , two correct size fans set up for push pull would give absolute lowest temp , but wont really make a noticeable difference as those rads are thin/ low fin count .
if you expanded the aio to use the other rads then the pump doesn't have the head pressure to move the coolant through this homemade loop , and if you didn't add a res of some kind most likely has air trapped inside it .
before I went custom looped I used a h100i and cpu stayed under 64c in prime95 and average 50s in real usage with an ambient temp of 24c .
no, I've explained it wrong.... watercooler +3 cooler in case, I already found the problem... Its the Thermal paste... Thx for helping
What motherboard are you using?
Gigabyte 990 FXA-UD3 (ultra durable) I've found the problem... its the thermal paste.
I have a XFX R7950 DD for 3 years that used to run at 37/39 C. when idle.
Now with the new crimson driver it runs at 59/60 C most of the time. Yet sometimes it stays on 37/39.
Which means it has nothing to do with paste.
Dont waste time looking for errors that arent there!
It's clearly the driver.
Nobody in my house can use the computer at the moment other than me because the fan lock error jumps in even when coming out of sleep status!
Then I read at several places all is ok now according to AMD. What a joke!!
Now I feel let down by AMD because they act as if the problems are solved while it's not.
This will be the last AMD (based) card for me if this situation drags on much longer
We are talking about a CPU here not a 7950 GPU.
