Ok so to start off with, I'll go ahead and list what I'm working with:
ASRock Extreme 4 MOBO
8 GB G.Skill Ripjaws X RAM
Intel Integrated graphics (no GPU...yet)
Alright, so I just installed the NH-D14 and ran prime 95. Its been going for almost an hour now and I'm seeing these temps for max:
68, 65, 64, 61 and the package temp was 68. Room temp is a bit hot, about 24 celsius or 75 fahrenheit. The average core temps are cooler by around 2 or 3 celsius. Also, just thought I'd add that the stock cooler couldn't even run prime 95 because it'd get to over 85 and I'd stop it worried it was getting too hot.
My CPU is completely stock, nothing changed. If there's a turbo boost or anything, I haven't touched it. Are these temps normal for the Noctua NH-D14 with my setup? Also kind of wondering if I'd have any room to overclock with it like that.
Well ok is better than bad I guess haha. Do you have any rough idea how high I could get the OC? Think I could take it to 4.2 Ghz? Not looking for anything too crazy just wanna take advantage of my K series chip.
