Hi All,
I have a i7 8700k cooled by Corsair Hydro H115i, about 2-3 yrs old, after about 40 mins or so its fans kick in on high, pc has been cleaned and new Grizzly Kryonaut Thermal paste applied, core temp program suggest around 45c last time i checked, i've also reset bios of z390 aorus master, I don't recall the fans kicking in this quick or as loud before, it's housed in a C700P case that has 3 x 120 or 140mm case fans, can't remember which, it's defo the h115i fans as i unplugged the others. I've also set in bios under smartfan, to auto, even tried manual with the curve etc, doesn't seem to make any difference. I just can't seem to figure it out, system doesn't restart or overheat.

Thanks in advance.

You may want to research your cooler for maintenance procedures to see if there's a problem .
