CPU Temp under load?

Hello Guys

When i run Intel's own stress test, it puts 100% load on my computer, and my 100% load is around 95Degress.

Is that too much? Is says: TJMax 97 degrees.
(Its a Core i7 2600K)

Its just because i have screen freezing problems.

More about : cpu temp load

Yes, that's quite high. What's your ambient temperature? What kind of cooler do you have?

Do you overclock (OC) your cpu?
If you don't OC your cpu then ... 95 degrees is not normal. If you use stock Heatsink and Fan (HSF) it will only reach about 75 degrees (with assumption that you placed ur HSF correctly)

That is definitely not normal, are you overclocked?
What heatsink are you using?

The TjMax is actually 105c, so 95c is bad, but if you are using a stock cooler, that's not really surprising.

Instead, could you run prime95 (small FFT, for 5 minutes), and with CPU HWMonitor tell me what temps you get?

I use a standard cooler, from manufacturer. I have just bought this one, and waiting for it: http://www.komplett.dk/cooler-master-hyper-212-evo-cpu-...

What is Overclocked?

PCDave: I ran Prime95 with 'CoreTemp' for 2 minuts. My Core went up to 98 degress 100% load. And my computer did not crash while testing.

And then it freezed afterwoods anyway... I have altso bought new RAM, because i think it could be them. After been trying my dads (same RAM) and no freeze. Could it really be my RAM?

Wow - yes, that's a bit "toasty"! Aside for the very good ideas already presented, I would be just as concerned with the VRM side of the equation. Often unbalanced loading on many 12, 18 or even 24-phase designs can and do take a beating from the heat - likely contributing to your problem. Cooling in this area is often inadequate even in non O/c'd environments and this can cause flakiness, and can seriously harm the longevity of these components. Just another area to look at while addressing your CPU temps. Best of luck!

Thank you. It was from about 6 month ago, when i took a big hit on my computer (on the top front) when all these "freezeing" problems started.

RAM shouldn't be an issue, let us know what temps you get with that cooler when you get it.

Hello Dave

So now i got my new one on. And i tested my Core with 100% load with Intel's own stress test, and my cores only went up to about 50 degress. A lot better!!

I hope that this new cooler is the solution.

Overclock means that you increase your CPU frequency above normal. For example your i7-2600K normal frequency is 3.4GHz. If you do not increase this, so it means you're not overclocking your CPU. I use the same CPU as yours and using standard HSF from Intel and my temp barely touch 76 degrees using prime95 and intel burn test. For normal usage only reach 68 degrees (my ambient temp is about 27-30 degrees Celcius). So I think the main cause is your HSF was not installed correctly. And because you have bought an after market HSF, you should be fine. I think that will solve your problem entirely. :-)
Good luck.

That big physical hit on your computer sounds like it "bumped/move" the stock CPU cooler.... (as shown by those temperatures) Basically, I'll be your stock CPU cooler was no longer making good contact with the CPU....

Glad you solved the issue, I always prefer an aftermarket cooler, quieter n cooler than stock every time....

Looks great, had a feeling your cooler was acting up.

I did try to reinstall my old cooler but did not help, so i basically think it went defect.
