4670K temps too high?

Hi everyone,

i just got myself a new system with a i5 "Haswell" 4670K and i tried overclocking it (first overclock ever) to get 4.2GHz. Then i used IntelBurnTest and RealTemp to test the overclock. During 10 runs I got results as high as 89 degrees C on IntelBurnTest's Standard setting and I am worried that this may be too high.

Relevant information:
Processor cooler: Scythe Katana 4.
MB: Asus Z87-Pro
I used this guide (http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-1722630/intel-go...) with these adjustments: 42x CPU multi and 1.20v vcore (Found in another 4670K thread).

PS: Big thanks to IntelGod for making that guide on overclocking without it I would have been even more clueless.

Edit: Idle temp about 35-40 degrees C

More about : 4670k temps high

Your chip is running a bit warm. Normally you don't want to run above 80 for a long processor life. You could either get a nasty cooler like the Noctua NH-C14 or try water if you dare. If you are crazy, delidding would do the trick too.

Thank you guys for the feedback. I will stop overclocking untill I have bought a decent cooler(probably a closed loop watercooler).

closed loop water cooler will perform same or in some cases a lil worse than top end air coolers. Just saying... keep that in mind for some reason people think AIO are a godsend answer to OCing - far from it

+1

Only the best of water coolers can beat the top tier air coolers like Noctua NH-C14 & NH-D14 and Phanteks PH-TC14PE.
