    this definitely is a issue with your cooling situation the 7700k is a hot chip i do recommend a custom water loop if that is in the budget you have. but if that is not an option you should make sure there is no dust or cables in the way of the fan and make sure you have some good case fans to try and pull the air over and through the cooler and out the back of the case. you should also make sure your room is cool because the computer is cooling its self with the air is sucks in so if it is getting hot air it can only cool the computer with that already hot air so make sure your environment is nice and cool as well.

    Hello nimernimer,

    Didn't you need the corsair link to make H155i work properly ?
    Was the installation seamless ?
    Buyer's guide only recommend H110 which seem not to need corsair link (no "i" version) to work properly.

    Thanks

    @Hauru
    You changed the voltage back down? That's all that matters for heat.

    I have my 8700k OC'd to 5GHz with an H100i for lower temps.

    Here in my suggestion:
    Make sure your cooler is seated properly, and there is enough thermal paste. (There should just be a layer over most of the CPU.

    Good luck,
    Trevor

    It does have enough air intake. Will try to buy a better CPU coller. Thanks for the info!

    I see you mentioned your using the H100i, is it working ok for you for OC'ing?
    I'm also wondering if the H150i Pro works for anyone yet, gonna start that detective work now.
