Greetings AMD Community,


I apologize in advance if I break any protocols and procedures as this is my first experience in a forum environment.


I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with the above mentioned pairing. I understand that the CPU would run at a higher temp, but this is alarming. I have re-applied thermal paste and re-seated the block with no luck. Used HWmonitor, Coretemp, AI Suite 3, MSI Afterburner, HWInfo, and AIDA64 to monitor temps , all with inconsistant results. Running all fans at max, with waterblock plugged into system fan header (instead of CPU header). H75 mounted with hoses below the rad. Specs as follows :


AMD A10 7850K


32 GB (4X8) Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1866 PC3-14900

R7 240 2GB DDR5 (2 monitors)

800W TopPower 80 Bronze PSU

Bitfenix Black Ghost Mid tower case (front panel off/mesh top insert)

2X120mm fans intake on front

H75 liquid cool w 2X120mm fans in push/pull (backplate inserts sanded level with mobo to ensure waterblock is flat against CPU)


Fully updated Windows 10 Pro 64 bit

Prime 95 maxes out temp at 80C in minutes



Hopefully it's enough info to work with that someone may have suggestions other than a complete replacement of cooling solution. The H75 replaced a CoolerMaster Hyper212 EVO with push/pull.


Help me're my only hope.


Thanks in advance,
