i7 3770k and Hyper 212 Evo push/pull, stock settings, good temp?

Hi everyone! I'm new here but was wondering if I could possibly get some help/advice on my temperatures. It would be much appreciated.

i7 3770k with a Hyper 212 Evo, 2 fans-Push/Pull, nothing overclocked. Ambient about 26. When I run RealTemp and/or Core Temp it states that the processor is running 100% at 3.9ghz and I seem to hit a max temp on core 1 of 74. I am using Intel Burn Test on Maximum Torture and running 10 cycles. I also tried Prime 95 on any of the FTT's for about 30min. Heavy work.

Is 74 max on one core a good number for the i7 3770k? All other cores seem to be within 10 degrees of this number. Just wondering if I got the install right or not...

All of this in a Level 10 GT case with LOTS of air movement, so please disregard ventilation as an issue... :) 

Thanks in advance!

That sounds a little high, but then again Ivy's run pretty damn hot.
What're your idle temps?

Assuming nothing they aren't crazy high, try re-applying the paste and see if you get lower temps.
Even with as hot as Ivy's run, I'd expect the core to be around low to mid 60s if they aren't OC'ed.

I agree with aramisathei the temp that you listed sounds a bit high but really you will never see temps that high when you are not running a burn in application like Prime95 or IBT.

I get 65C under prime95 on the hottest core, 4.1GHz OC, one fan on the Evo in push, and 20-21C ambient.

My dumb-guy math says that you should see 70-71C on the hottest core, but I am unsure of the effect of higher ambient (does it scale linearly?) and the added (if any) temps from HT. Plus, your mobo may differ from mine in the volts it pushes for stable clocks but again, I don't know that for a fact.

your temp numbers are reasonable for what your using as cooling. i suggest moving to a open loop water if you want really get into overclocking. air is just adequate at best for low level overclocks.

Disagree Atomic, the 212 Evo does just fine even in mid range to the lower end of high overclocks. My 3820 will not go above 65c at 4.0ghz.

Thanks for the quick replies. I will reapply and remount. My idle temps are 32 on the coolest core to 40 on the hottest core.

I removed all old TIM and reapplied a nice new layer even more perfect than before. Temps are about the same... Idle 40 on the hottest core and 74ish on IBT on maximum stress. Ambient temps are around 25-27...

Is there something I'm missing here? BIOS settings? Fan control? I haven't touched any of this yet...

Other than manually undervolting as far you can and still remain stable, I dunno.

Edit: Or turn the air conditioning up :)  I would start taking hostages if I had to hang out in a 26C ambient room.

So, I have another question which might be related to this thread? If Intel's tcase temp for the 3770k is 67.4, am I not running dangerous here? Can someone please help me understand tcase?

thats not to high no. i try to keep thinks under >=67C...
