????

I get 100c at least. People waste their time by remount/paste.
Doesnt really fix the problem.

I have tried 3 coolers/pastes. Nothing!

So its a pointless answer.

Was thinking maybe faulty chips, BUT I NEVER heard of a Faulty chip.
Thats rare to have one.

Also Mine doesnt DOWNLOCK at all at 100c.
Why are cores at 4.4 all the time? idle?
I have to set to power level to Power saving to clock at 800mhz.
Why doesnt my system shut off if its running 100c? is 100 c a safe temp?
I dont like it.

Gigabyte gaming 5 + 4790k.
100% cpu usage = 90-100c. Even stress test with x264 100% cpu and
prime. All same temps.
oh ya idle 42-50c.

Whats wrong with these horrible chips lol. Regretting buying one. Upgraded from
2500(low temps).

Was wondering if anyone got a replacement on their high temp chips, see if it made
a low temp difference. Bad batch maybe? But I highly doubt it.

If you run 4.4 all the time, and have a simple stock cooler, you are going to have a bad time. If you have stock cooler, try using cm 212evo.

I have that one as well. Also others. Stock cooler even gave same temps, nothing better.
Other coolers only save me a few temps from stock, thats it. Still have high temps.

I fixed it to 4.0.

Rooms temps are ok at 78f. Case gets toasty with combination of MSI 780 TI,
if I game at 4k. Case gets really toasty, hot actually. 780 can
jump into 90c as well.

Sounds like case airflow might be one of the problems.
Can you list your full specs? (example could be "Mobo: Z97 Gigabyte gaming 5" instead of just "gigabyte gaming 5")
Also - check the voltage on the 4790k, all chips are not the same. Some require more voltage, some less.

Do you have the F5 version of the BIOS?

My case is like empty. Only thing that takes up room is my Video card.

4790k
GA-Z97N-Gaming 5 Bios updated(didnt do nothing, did change Vcore only a little lower).
780 ti
1x250 ssd + 1 TB blue
4x2 ram 1.5v
750W corsair.

I set vcore at 1.25V , didnt do nothing. Even when vcore was at high 1.38 or something, higher i think.

Weird how my MOBO reports 28-32c while chip can blast up to 100c at least, very fast.at load.
Wouldnt the mobo match temps.

I have other builds that turned out fine :(  . Still prefer 35w intel mpc build.
Other intel cpus are under 60c load.

Intel changed the thermal compound on the new Desert Canyon CPUs but IMO the gap between the IHS and the CPU Die has always been the problem, if it is too great the thermal conductivity is compromised.

That said your situation with the GPU exhausting it's heat inside the case doesn't help things, if would benefit you to get the maximum case airflow you can to get the heat out as fast as possible.

I recommend going to a high end air cooler for the CPU for your situation, and the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is not a high end air cooler!

You may need to take some time and read over this before you make anymore decisions.

All right, but the vcore, what is it at? I heard about some gigabyte motherboard(z87 tho) trying to push 1,5vcore at stock(crazy)

Also, i still believe it is more about the case airflow, since the 780ti runs at almost 90c, which it shouldn't.

Can you send a picture of your pc, open sidepanel and tell us where you have the fans? Very bad cable management can actually block the airflow quite a bit, and also if you have dust inside of it.

I did switch out to 750ti to test out temps, still got same. 750 ti is really cool, love it. Only
60W pull. It blow all air out of back since front fan blows out end and back end as well,
works great.

90c with 780 ti if play at 4k at ultra settings on demanding games though.

Hi
As mentioned above the case airflow is a problem if your case is getting hot.
The goal should be to get the air temp inside the case as close as possible to room temperature.
That hot air inside the case is being pulled over the cpu heatsink and according to thermodynamics the RATE of heat exchange is proportional to the Difference in temperatures,so the greater the difference in temperature between heatsink and air then the faster the heat exchange will be.
So if you can drop your case temps by say 5 C you should see your cpu temps drop by more than that .

get CM Hyper T4 or 212 EVO, that should solve your issue.

He said he already had a 212 EVO.

didn't see that. Then try the system outside the case and see how hot it gets.
