    Question Corsair H100i Pump Not Working ?

    I bought this cooler off of Facebook for $50. I set it up but I couldn't get the pump to work, as there's no pump detected in the BIOS and the CPU temperature rises to 95 C before throttling. I've attached a few images showing the setup, but I don't know what's wrong. -The SATA power and the USB...

    Question 13900k Thermal Throttling at stock speeds

    I bought a EVGA CLCx 360mm AIO to cool down my 13900k. Even at stock settings for the CPU, I'm getting thermal throttling under stress tests. I find it weird because I'm not seeing these issues with other CPU Coolers, is there a chance I just got a defective one? Radiator and fans are top...

    [SOLVED] AIO suddenly not doing its job

    Hi everyone, I have recently moved house and when booting up a game I noticed some choppy frames and in idle noticed my fan speeds were a bit high.

    [SOLVED] Upgrading ML120 Pro RGB worth it?

    I am on a custom watercooling loop with 13900k and two Corsair 360mm radiators, XR5 and XR7. I made the mistake of buying the older ML120 PRO RGB fans. I just found out they have mediocre performance and performs worse than the non-RGB ML 120 fans. I don't think the current fans have enough...

    Question How could I easily improve the cooling in this ?

    Is there anyway to easily improve the cooling in this? Could I just drill holes in it or point a small fan at it? I've seen elsewhere that I would eventually have to upgrade something inside, but would like to know if there is something quick and temporary.
