[Help] Concerning problems with heat and noise!

NotHoward

9 months ago

Hi everyone, I have just recently built my very first gaming pc for around $1250. Put it all together and I was able to play games just fine however, I have come to notice that my PC has gotten quite loud with the case fans that I'm using. Whenever I touch the top of my case, it get's really warm and it concerns me that it is too hot. I don't know what to do to fix the heat and how to fix the loud case fans. I am new to this and have been looking around for answers but am to scared to make any decisions without some opinions.

The fans that i'm currently using as the case fans at the moment are the ones that come with my H500i case. Another thing that I think that is making the noise is my Hyper 212 EVO Turbo. I don't know if I placed these fans in the correct direction or not.

These are some pictures I have taken of my PC for everyone to see if I had did anything wrong while building https://ibb.co/JWL2fVH https://ibb.co/NK733wt https://ibb.co/s1qSWR7 https://ibb.co/cCTVsjC https://ibb.co/bKVgVxB https://ibb.co/wrxxKpY https://ibb.co/b1bGLqs https://ibb.co/nrFP6zh https://ibb.co/KV9k3nZ https://ibb.co/616jCHN

Make sure the fans are in a push pull config, one should have the sticker pointed INWARDS, one should be OUTWARDS.

That may help, you don't want it to be pulling where there is no air or pushing where there is already air.

Is this sticker very visible on the fans? and how many fans should i be using to pull and push air for my PC. currently I'm only using the 2 case fans

it should be a sticker with the brand name and logo on only one side of the fan.

the fans you have already are fine.

what is the load temp of the CPU, and GPU?

That question asked... most of the time your front fan is going to be an intake, and the top will be an exhaust, the top is going to be kind of warm.

If your load temps are good, your likely ok.

As for the noise... that 212 is not known for being super quiet... you may be able to mess with the fan profiles, and replace with better fans...

The idle temp of my CPU fluctuates a lot, ranging from low as 40Call the way up to 55C, it keeps changing constantly. Is it normal for it like that or should be staying around the same numbers? While under load, my CPU stays around 53-65C. The idle temp of my GPU is more constant is stays around 42C. While under load, my GPU can get up to about 60C Max but stays around 55 normally.

your fine, those temps are not bad at all.

There should be an arrow on one side of each of the fans to indicate the passage of air.

On your CPU heat-sink one should blow into the heat-sink and other blow out from the heat-sink (push/pull), ideally heading upwards and out of your case.
