Im kinda new here so forgive me if im not following some instructions. Just wanna ask the experts if there's something wrong with my i7 - 950 cpu. Its running to hot under full load (using prime96) with temps up to 90+ (using stock fan) and now with the coolermaster v6 gt im getting around 70C full load and 40 at idle.
From where im at, its kinda hot, around 30~33C ambient. Are these temp normal? or is it just my cpu that's running hot? Btw, still used the default thermal paste that comes with the v6gt. applied it at first(too much thermal paste) got around 70C and reapplied it(placed a pea size at the mid and spread using a business card) after cleaning thoroughly, and still got the 70C temp.
Need help, thanks.
Heres my specs btw:
CPU: i7 - 950
case: 690 II advanced (2 fans intake(front and side), 3 fans exhaust(back and top)
cooler: cm v6gt
psu: corsair hx850
I actually I think his temps are fine considering the high ambient temps ( 30-33C) idle at 10C above ambient is right on the mark even on my noctua d14..you should not need a core voltage of 1.4v at stock clocks even using xmp profile fro ram. but I see no problem with those temps with the V6 GT
