    5950x Corsair H150i Pro 90c while gaming


    I'm a little concerned my AIO might be slowly giving up on me.
    Typical use while using chrome or watching a movie is around 40c
    Playing GTAV or Dying Light 2 for 30 mins It will stick around 64c
    After an hour it just sits at 90c, 30% usage, with all 6 fans at max.


    It's probably 5 years old I think. If I need to upgrade I'd like to keep under $150 if anyone has any suggestions.

    Something else to consider. Games are not always optimized the best. If you are using PBO temps can soar in some games. Try a CCX OC, 4.6 and 4.4 with a vid od 1.18-1.20. Temps will drop probably 20c and will still game really good.

    The tdp max. of the 5950x is less than 200watts a good aircooler will be good too. Longevity is lifetime except for the fan.

    I just spent $60 on AIO rgb sleeves and I don't want to ditch them. I prefer to stick with a 360 aio. I saw a refurbished ARCTIC II 420 AIO for $100 but I don't think it's going to fit in my case.

    I wouldn't buy a refurbished AIO, even if it is cheap.

    It's a bit more than you wanted to spend, but...

    Probably should had mentioned before. Have you tried reseating the cooler with fresh paste?
