Question h115i normal and hot temps?

hello friends. so i have just been worried about my gaming pc, because i think its getting abit warm.

PC Specs:
----------------------
CPU: i7 6800K
----------------------
GPU: GTX 1080
----------------------
RAM: 64GB
----------------------
AIO: h115i
----------------------
Case: Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 Cube
----------------------

so my AIO liquid temps are starting to get abit hot recently. and quite loud, so im just wondering what temps are really dangerous for my h115i and at what temps should it sit when im gaming.
when on idle the liquid temp (AIO) is about 34c-38c and when im gaming it goes up to 44c-46c and i dont understand why its getting so toasty. and i dont know if my cpu is also getting hot. my cpu package idles around 32c-35c
and when browsing google chrome with youtube playing on the background it goes up to 37c-43c. what should i do or what should i be worried about? every time i turn on my pc the cpu gets to +1c more than it was before
for example. if the CPU package was on 38c when i will turn my pc on. and after afew hours turn it back on from shutdown, then it will be 40c and not 38c.... a fast reply would be helpfull because im scared to overheat my pc
and thats why i need anwsers. again im more worried about my AIO liquid temps.

im using corsair link for my h115i fan controls,

this is my fan curve for my h115i:
25C : 25%
30C : 30%
40C : 40%
45C : 45%
55C : 60%
60C : 100%

And my pump is runing 3100 RMP. and under load pump is going up to 3300 RPM

screenshot:

note that this screenshot was taken while mid gaming, so all temps you see are underload. for expamle on the screenshot i was playinf cs:go

p.s i have been using this pc since 2017 so keep that in mind

That is nothing near hot I would say not even on the warm side.
Download and run OCCT and check your temps under load that is the only way to do it not running a game like CSGO.

Your AIO temps have nothing to do with anything it's only job is to keep your CPU cool.

EDIT Your CPU temp 56C great not even on the warm side your AIO says 46C that number has nothing to do with anything. Download and run OCCT if your CPU is under 80C your fine in better shape than a lot of people and everything is fine/ it's even on the good side.

Yes.

EDIT you hit 86C running the stress test your OK stop stressing over it.
hello again, my liquid temp reached 53c while i was playing the same xxxxxxx csgo, and the cpu package reached 72c. now i closed the game, and im sitting on 42-44c on idle, and 47-52c while google chrome and youtube runing. i feel like every reboot its getting hoter and hoter. after coling the game after 5 mins my water reached from 53c to 46.3c. is that normal???? me pc is loud as a rocket

You think liquid temps like that are enough to melt tubing?? They aren't. People on the internet say a ton of dumb stuff with no substance.

Also, it's loud because the fans on your AIO are mediocre at best. Want a quiet AIO? Get an Arctic Liquid Freezer II.

hello, what CPU package temps do you recommend for idle, browsing, and gaming.

i have stock corsair fans wich is set to this fan curve
25C : 25%
30C : 30%
40C : 40%
45C : 45%
55C : 60%
60C : 100%

they do this wierd vibration sound wich is loud af and the fans itself is loud af.

again please let me know safe temps for i7 6800K, and let me know average CPU package temps on idle, browsing, gaming.. thanks!!!!

100% is insanity. Fan noise will drive you crazy if you don't find a good balance of RPM and silence. I recently got silent case fans, after tuning the RPM for a bit, gaming for me involves both cool temps and complete silence. If I left it on Auto, it would be insanely loud for no additional cooling benefit.

Your temperatures are fine and safe considering the setup you have. You CANNOT damage a CPU with temps only -- as they either throttle in speed or shut down to prevent actual damage. If it's not shutting down, it's fine. Your 14nm chip is also quite resistant to both high current and high temps. So don't worry. You can play around with fan curves to minimize noise -- AIO fans certainly don't need to be at 100%. Any fan at 100% will drive you nuts -- unless it's some low RPM model.

Idle temps don't matter, load temps do.

Also, you have a HEDT CPU, which can draw around 200W. That's a considerable amount of heat.

so should i lower the rpm for my fans???
here is my current curve


25C : 25%
30C : 30%
40C : 40%
45C : 45%
55C : 60%
60C : 100%

so should i lower the fan speed or should i leave it. the curve is based on my AIO liquid temp, so if the AIO is hot the fans are louder, its not base off the cpu.

when the AIO liquid temp reaches above 50c its like abit loud for me. but if its under 45c i keep my rpm at 950-1080RPM and its silent
but when its above 50c its like 1400RPM wich is noticably louder, again im using stock corsair fans and i dont want to buy anything at the moment


EDIT: i want pure silence on my setup but at the same time i think im gonna explode my pc if i keep my fans low at all times,
thats why i need average CPU package temps and average AIO liquid temps, so i can adapt to these temps and make the curves
correspondingly to these temps and get the perfect curve good for my pc and at the same time quiet for my comfort.

If you want pure silence, you gotta find a good balance between fan RPM and temperatures. I've found that my case fans do nothing regarding temps above 900 RPM, so I kept them at 900 RPM and minimized the noise by 50% compared to 1100 RPM or higher.

Running the fans slower won't kill your PC, temperatures alone won't kill your PC, there are protections in place for that. Your PC can take high temps, your ears cannot take loud noise.

If you want both good cooling and good temps, as I said before, get an Arctic Liquid Freezer II which has very quiet fans and a thicker radiator. Corsair fans are godawful when it comes to noise. For that CPU I'd recommend the 360mm model, if your case supports it. If not, 280mm.

To me, 100% at 60C seems excessive. My fan curve is set up to only go to 50% max.

ok ill set my max % to 50 aswell, but i hope you understand that im apliying these fan curves to my AIO (means its adapted on my liquid temp.
wich mean no matter the cpu temp the fan speeds will only follow the liquid temps and adapt the RPM's only thu liquid temp)
with that out of the way. 1 more question..... what are safe temps for the liquid temps (aka water temp) so for what limits can i push my
liquid temps at max?? and when is the water in aio becomes HOT for my AIO.... i hope this rounds up my questions! waiting for the anwsers lol

by the way my pump is set to "perfomance" mode. so the pump rpm is 3000-3300 but i cant hear the pump but it cools the cpu better than the "quiet" mode. for example: (quiet)45c (perfomance)42c. so it makes abit diffrence lol!

Don't do this. You have to find your OWN perfect fan RPM for your configuration. 50% just works for me, but they're case fans for regular airflow. I have a Noctua NH-D15S air cooler on my PC which in itself is also at about 55% max fan speed. For your AIO, you may need higher RPM, but I doubt you need 100%.

I know you're applying it to AIO, it shouldn't matter, AIO fans shouldn't be blaring at 100%, the pump should.

I don't know about the safe liquid temps as I'm no AIO expert but I doubt 45-55C will melt your tubing... or do any damage whatsoever.

I'll say it again. Your temps are fine. And you're definitely in need of an AIO upgrade for that power hungry CPU, and the LF II series from Arctic are the only way forward.

Pump should always be at 100% speed. Fans shouldn't.
