i7 4820k normal temperature?

hi guys.
I have a i7 4820k and I have no doubt if normal or high temperatures.
My team is: i7 4820k, 16gb GSkill 2400MHz, asus rampage iv formula, ezcool 750w psu, corsair h100i (so quiet in the screenshot)
Leave the links to screenshots of temperatures in idle and under load (no overclock)
I and change the thermal paste 2 times ( artic silver 5 and zalman ) and always idle temperature is about 40 degrees (Aida 64) and 35 (with cpuid HWMonitor)
These temperatures are normal or not?
Ideas?

room temperature= 24º

  1. I may be mistaken, but in the second photo it looks like you have a stress test running. If you do, and the processor is topping off at ~55 degrees celsius that looks fine to me.

    If not though, then make sure the fans are running on your H100i and the light on the pump is glowing. I know the LGA 2011 processors run hotter than others, but it shouldn't be running that hot at stock and idle.
  2. the second photo is in stress.
    I thought 40 degrees at idle and under load was 5x normal, but I saw in forums that Spain had the 4820k idle at 30 degrees!
    I wanted to know if some 4820k user can upload a photo.
    The corsair h100i works well (the pump and fans).
    I think it may be a problem that this poorly applied thermal paste or is the processor the problem.
    But thermal probe with 2 pastas and always has this temperature.
  3. temps look fine i wouldnt worry
  4. Yeah, I double checked the temps there, they look fine. Stress testing and getting ~55 is great.
  5. some of you have a 4820k?
    I also thought that these temperatures are fine, but I saw this photo on a forum Noticias3D a user who had the 4820k:

    They very well could have a custom water cooling loop or something like a H110. Besides, 5 degree difference is within margin of error for me, hell, thermal paste needs time to cure properly anyways.
  7. the cooler is the h100i. In this forum all would tell me that my temperature was very high! q I thought were normal
    the cooler is the h100i. In this forum all would tell me that my temperature was very high! q I thought were normal
    I am planning to buy artic silver 5 and replace the paste.
    Because I want to overclock the micro
  8. those temps look healthy. h100i is decent as well.

    dont beleive everything people tell u.

    Dude, don't worry about it. So your temps are ~5 degrees higher. That isn't enough to worry about. Go nuts, overclock. Just as long as it doesn't go above 80 degrees while stress testing you're fine.
  10. +1 good stuff
  11. if the fans are pushing past the rad as an exhaustfrom the case temps will be higher than if you used it as an intake.
    the airflow over the rad also makes a difference. push vs pull. ideally push+pull, space permitting.
    bent fins resitict airflow.

    side note: using as an intake its about 4 degrees cooler.


    (swiftech h220 intake config, stock fans with cooler, 44 degrees max on intelburn, core 3 is 2-3 degrees warmer than the rest.)
  12. I just set up the 4820K and H100i 16G Hyper X PC 2400 and im getting 31-32c at idle. I used Noctua gunk and got a really nice thin layer. I don't know how much I trust the corsair link software crap. Asus Monitor says 29 so close enough. I get a nice breeze in the Corsair 500R with Corsair High Performance Fans on the radiator. Fronts and side on full. The noise is substantial but with headphones no biggie. I've been building gaming pcs for 15 yrs. This one is a true BEAST.

    actually the 4820k runs cooler than haswell, it uses soldering so there are no heat issues like in Ivy or haswell.
  14. I noticed that my top mounted H100i with high performance fans pushing out the top of my case was blowing warm air. The radiator is definitely doing its job. You could test that easily after a gaming session.
  15. I have a 4820k with an H100 the old model and my idle temps are like 20 and 40 under full load. Id say you prolly used too much artic silver
  16. I have a 4820k and it idles at 32c however it's also running at it's standard 3700, when I change it to it's turbo 3900 it idles at about 34c. Unless you have a filtering screen or something similar I would avoid using
    the radiator fans an intake. Yes I know that the air is cooler by using it as intake but the problem is that the radiator will clog up real quick and that will severely decrease cooling performance. Many of the modern cases
    have screens built in, if not you can always buy the magnetic kind for like 5 dollars on amazon. Only use intake for radiator if you have a way to filter the air, if not then just use exhaust for the radiator but make sure to have
    more intake case fans then you have exhaust, well actually that should be a general rule to follow anyways. By having more intakes you create air pressure inside of the case thus allowing plenty of available air for the fan to
    blow through the radiator. Having too many exhausts will decrease the amount of airflow that you need to cool the radiator./
  17. I have a 4820k with an H100 on stock clocks i see 28c idle and 34 playing gta
