Right, I am in the process of upgrading the cooling unit on my PC. From the Intel AC. Now I have two fan slot areas one on back pannel one on the base pannel. If I remember the sizes they can take up to 180mm fans. So am looking at one fan rad for the CPU.

This Link directs you to Scan my suppler. it should show you the list of all in one units. Now this is my first time dealing with WCS. So am looking for input and advise. Now I am a fan of Corsair. I did see some there.

So please your input would be gladly received.

if you're not overclocking and running intel, the single fan radiator like the h60/h80 is fine. If your **** gonna run really hot, go with h100i/h110.

Yeah am not OCing but she is running hot. She is pushed alot. Star Cit is one game that pushes her to 100c. Other games have her at 70c to 80c preferably I want that lower. My MSI CC keeps track on this and has the fans running on SM so they are working their best. They have been Calibrated to.

Oh I cant really use the H100i or h110, I do not have the space for that dual fan radiator. Yep and that is with a full gaming tower....

I have my Aerocool control point showing me temps via is LCD to. I have Several controllable fans. Which are part of the cooling to. So I can adjust them if need be. Which does help.

The GPU is going to be looked at later if funds allow it with a 1080. As at this moment my GPU hit on max load 70c to 90c Air flow has been worked to the best I can do. I dont see FPS loss so am cool on that. I rather have them cooled better. I know I can get GPU down to 50c to 60c when I blitz her fans to max. But that is another issue as I said will deal with later.

100c tells me you are either OCing or the heatsink isn't on right or air gap in the compound on the heatsink base.

I would double check that, maybe get a tube of Factor 5 silver and apply an even coating on the CPU (after CPU and base of heatsink is cleaned correctly), give it a wiggle before clamping in fully that will push out air if any is left.

EDIT: Just read your GPU is running hot too, is your PC near a radiator or sitting on a carpet/fabric base?

You may want to expel your hot air by pushing it out from the back of the PC if you have no back fan.

I have an old i7 920 running 3.8 ghz with 1,294V on a gigabyte EX58-ud3r board, never exceeding 74 degree celcius with 24hr Prime95 with a Corsair H55. I am able to get power lower and more efficient, thus less heat to follow, but haad a recent "start all over again" .. So quick and dirty OC voltages ...

SO you should check up on your OC settings and voltages, and find out your lowest stable Voltages at given OC = Less heat

OC means you know what you are doing (hopefully) and knowing your hardware's capabilities is crucial when OC'in. and at own risk ofcourse

Again am not over clocking I dont and never will do OC'ing. Everything is at its own untouched settings. That has always been my stance since I was started building rigs 20 years ago. Am not wanting to OC either. All I want it to cool her better as at current the fan system is not really doing it now.

Currently at non gaming the CPU sits at 30c to 40c.
GPU at non gaming sits at the dame 30c to 40c.

Plus I would not even know where to start on OCing either.
