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

Is it possible that the pump wasn't running at full speed?
there could be some odd wiring in the pump that causes it to require a fan to be pluged into its plug

Yes, it should be plugged into a molex plug OR into the 4-pin CPU header with all throttling/speed altering options disabled in the BIOS. I'm not sure about the newer pumps, but my H70 pump runs at 1,430 RPM's.
