Hi, I'm using a H100 cooler with my CPU. Everytime I try installing the chipset drivers I get really high temps and uninstlaling does not fix it - though sometimes it helps. I've manage to fix this issue a few times now but in honesty, it was pot luck. I'm seeing people report idle temps in the 40s and 50s, whereas mine go to 65c at the lowest and without this issue, they're between 55-65c, which does seem okay.


When gaming I keep egtting really high temps with this issue also, a minumum of 85c, often going all the way up to 95c... this can't be normal. (without it usually sits at 70c, with occasional small peaks of 5-10c)


Is anyone else having this issue? Does anyone have a fix? It's been driving me crazy, I'm trying to watch netflix and it sound slike a boeing 747 is trying tot ake off in my room. I've already tried updating my bios and making sure my AIO is screwed on evenly and not too tightly.
