i7 7700k high temps at 1.25 volts
Hello, i just got an i7 7700k and the temps were really high. I went ahead and underclocked it to 4.2ghz at 1.25 volts and its still reaching 70-75 degrees while gaming. I am using an aio with 2 120mm fans in push pull. Ive tried applying the thermal paste (artic mx-4) multiple times with different methods but the cpu is still running hot. I know these cpus run hot but i havent seen a single thread about it being at 4.2ghz 1.25v and running with high temps. Is there something wrong with the cpu? Should i delid it? Should i return it?
MrN1ce9uy said:What AiO are you using?
*I'd say those are normal temps for a 120mm AiO. 70-75C is warm but it's not too hot. I've always been told 240mm AiO and up is what you want for something like an i7 K-series if you want to use an AiO.
Im using a corsair h60 aio. I know its an old and crappy aio that i have had for about 2 years now. I didnt think that at stock speed the temps with the i7 would be so high.
