Re: Running very hot idle with Corsair H100 water cooler....

Fans don't care what you intend to use them for. If they are plugged into the proper voltage, they will run at the default speed or fan control setting.

I haven't read up on it, but the bad temps obviously had something to do with the assembly concerning radiator/pump/wiring controls.

Well the fans have a default speed of 2000rpm. They were connected directly into the PSU so they shouldn't have any sort of fan control. They aren't even variable speed fans, but for some reason they weren't running full speed when connected into the PSU. When I connected them to the H100 waterpump they seemed to run a lot faster.

I did reseat the pump like 3x, but i reapplied paste every time. I thought it wasn't making solid contact.
