Idle temp is at about 15-17c. Max load temp is 74-76c at 1.33v @4.635 ghz I have the noctua nh-d14 do those temps seem good or reasonable?

More about : 3770k temps good

Are you using prime95 to test? If so and you're sustaining 74-76C then yes your temps are fine considering you're using a Noctua air cooler with 1.33v on it. I for some odd reason don't believe your idle temps though.....I smell a miscalculation on your part or a lie. I could possibly see 25-27C idle temps but not in the teens.

I was using real temp and ran prime 95 with it. Idle temps on real temp were bouncing between 15-17, with no load... And then the max temps were
Around 75. I thought idle was low but I wasn't about to complain... I'll have to try again and get a picture of it if it repeats. I did run prime twice though with similar results for both idle & load.

Sometimes some sensors are not accurate at idle temps for some reason. I've had this happen on several rigs. But the high end is all that matters anyway. Yes, good temps.

Those aren't bad load temperatures, although that's a massive delta. Are you going to be able to keep your ambients that low?

How important are idle temps? The lower the better obviously but if you have a small gap between idle and load it doesn't really matter as long as it's doesn't get to hit under load..? Just curious

Idle temps don't matter at all, and it's more comforting in this situation that they're actually higher than 15-17C.

Idle temps are not important unless they show above the safe temp for your CPU. In which case you'd have a different problem and never maintain 74-76C temps at stressed. 17C is about 63F. That is probably lower than your room's ambient temp. If so, it would be impossible for 17C to be accurate.

I'll run it a couple more times and see what I get. Should I use a different program?

That's true the room was probably in the high 60's I wana say 67-69. It is getting cold here in Maine though! Haha

I use Core Temp and it always works for me.

I'll run them side by side and see what I get. Also is the load temp decent for a noctua d14 and being at 4.6 ghz

at 4.6ghz with a 1.33volt core on a Noctua air cooler, I'd say your idle temps should be around around 40-45C which isn't bad for Ivy Bridge.

The load temps are fine for that setup and those settings.

I have no idea what's going on there, does Core Temp say the same thing?

I dont know if you can see this but real temp is still low at 11-18 while core temp says 28-36. which is closer to what you all are saying. heres the pic: http://

its at 4.6 ghz when doing something but at idle you can see it drops down to 1.6 ghz it only uses what it needs. Which i like, but also though thatd explain the low temps

Use Core Temp. It's accurate and Real Temp is not.

OK, thanks guys. So this seems more reasonable now for the idle?
