i5 7600k temps question

I'm having some weird temps.

Not overclocked atm.

First off it seems to idle fine in the upper 20's, but sometimes it will say even 22C which is lower than my room temperature is. Several degrees lower.

When under 100% load it will randomly go from 60C or so down into the 30's and back up again within a second.

Then there is the package speed. It even hit 80C during the stress test. I'm not sure what the package temp is exactly. Looking it up people seem to say it is the core temp? But, the package temp is averaging about 20C over each individual core temps.

Is any of this concerning? And are temps too high already to overclock? Thanks for any insight
anyone can give on this.

Edit- Using HWinfo temps under load are averaging mid 60's to mid 70's. Hit 80C as max.

  1. It would seen your utility is not reading correctly. For CPU testing, I recommend:

    http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?43233-Realbench-v2-Discussion-Thread-Download-Links
    http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php

    Open RB and move window to left side of screen, open HWiNFO and slide right side. Run the 8 minute benchmark and record max core temps / voltages after each of the 4 modules
  2. Temps under load will ramp up from 31C to 63c in 1 second normally. ( however, temps under room temp is a little off. )

    HWinfo shows temps idling in the upper 30's. And even hitting 80C in the stress test. Usually around mid 60's to mid 70's.
  4. Heavy stress test such as Cinebench or Prime 95 will result in at least 72-73c , but no worries of throttling with typical 62 c game by loads.
  5. the temps its' not bad try to repaste the cpu or buy a new cooler if you want 70c max on strees test

    That sounds about right for the stock cooler. The mugen max is $36 and competes with the $90 Cryorig R1 Ultimate

    I've got the coolermaster pro 4 with arctic silver 5.

    I used the push pins on the coolermaster pro though because I for the life of me could not get the bracket to work. Tried it 3 times and the screws were to high to push into the screw fittings. I'm not sure push pins would make that big of a difference though.
  8. Doesn't sound like you got a good mount.
