Hello. Heres my specs/build

Case: Lian Li LI PC-O11 Dynamic EVO

Motherboard: ASUS ROG Maximus Z790 Extreme

CPU: Intel 13900K

CPU Cooler: EVGA CLCx 360mm All-In-One LCD CPU Liquid Cooler (swapped out EVGA fans for phanteks & set to exhaust position)

Thermal Paste: Removed EVGA's stock paste and used Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut.. using the spatula method

Case Fans: Phanteks T30-120 Fans (6 of them in intake position) . 4 for exhaust = 10 fans total

Graphics card: None yet (for now using intel's built in graphics)

PSU: MSI MEG Ai1300P

SSD: SAMSUNG 990 PRO SSD 1TB NVME M.2

Ram: G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR5 6800 (PC5 54400)



Its my first build so I believed to have installed everything correctly. I don't plan on overclocking. My bios is set to pretty much "Auto" on everything since I didnt change anything except switch the ram profile to XMP I instead of XMP II.

I did a stress test to make sure everything was running correctly but after 15 minutes of running AIDA. I saw CPU temps were reaching 90 to 92* Celsius. I read that most people are saying anything over 90* is pretty bad.

I set my both my fan / pump speed to 90 percent using EVGA's software. 2100 RPM On fans & 2200RPM on CPU Pump

If this is not normal being that it should be a decent cooler. Could someone tell me what could be wrong?

I never got a BSOD

Hello - I would like to chime in on this one. Most AIO coolers only run about 2500 rpm max speed and have a 28 cm core. I myself used to run a Corsair AIO with a 12900K. I too found out that the cooler just seemingly could not keep up with what I wanted out of it. Ended up building a custom loop from EK with a thicker core 360mm radiator with fans in a push/pull configuration and a pump that pushes 4000-ish rpm. In essence - if you want any hope of overclocking these newer K sku chips from Intel - you may need to get more significant cooling like myself. As another poster said - the higher speed helps push the coolant through the radiator at a pace fast enough for the fans to help dissipate the heat, but that alone may not be enough. You will likely need to invest in a heavier cooling setup to tame the beast. Undervolting will also help to some degree. Can lower temperatures as much as 5-10 C if done correctly. It isn't that you've done anything wrong - it's more likely that the P cores are zipping up so fast ( causing almost an immediate heat temperature rise out of the chip ) that it overwhelms the cooling solution before it can provide effective cooling. I too learned that the hard way. A speedy pump and a good thick radiator was my solution. Hope this helps.

Thank you for that. I previously had a pre-built water-cooled pc with those water blocks for CPU & GPU. Temps were always low but I just didn't like the yearly maintenance of taking all the radiators out. flushing liquid. refilling, cleaning all the water blocks etc. cause I had a terrible case/hard to work with so I decided for much less maintenance with AIO. I dont plan to do any overclocking at all. Im fine with the speeds I see now. Sometimes I see it reaching over 5ghz already without me touching anything in the BIOS

I just disabled asus multi-core option on bios and set to "enforce all limits" mode.. Did another stress test and this time I didnt see it saying "overheating" and no messages about CPU throttling but still I saw high temps sometimes ranging from 75 - 93 Celcius. Im assuming going by what you told me this might be the best I can do without messing with undervolting / switching back to water cooling option././ But yes this AIO reaches up to 3,000RPM max for pump and fan speed
