I5 750 CPU, what kind of Temps expected?

Hi all,
I was just checking my CPU temps using Coretemp programme and saw that temps seem to be 43-46C when idle and not with any Overclocking. Admittedly my cooler is nothing great - was just a Arctic Cooler Freezer Pro v2 which was bought simply because I don't like the stock cooler (so I didn't have any grand OC plans with it)
But the temps seem rather high to me. For curiosities sake I activated the OC Genie on my mobo and the idle temps went to 64C which is of course massively high.

So, ultimately I was wondering what peoples standard temps are when idle and not OC'd because I think mine are rather high for standard idling.

Thanks

  1. Arctic Cooler Freezer Pro v2 very good for default non OC and this one good for AMD CPU :
    seem problem HSF, not enough cold in idle system,
    - replace thermal Paste use AS5
    - Disable Smart fan in bios

    i think u know Oc must good HSF, like Noctua NH-C14 / Tuniq 120 extreme/Spire Thermax Eclipse II

  2. Yeah, I knew the Freezer Pro was not really for OCing, I was just curious to see what the low OC to 3.2ghz would do to temps.
    I will disable smart fan and see what happens. Beyond that I will likely be replacing the cooler with Hyper212+ or one of the coolers above. Not that I intend any big OCs anytime soon.

    Thanks for the answer
  3. I have an i5 760 (i.e. a slightly higher clocked 750) at stock speed with a Hyper 212+ cooler and it idles at ambient temp (~25 oC) and about 55 oC load. With the stock cooler it idled at about 35 oC I seem to remember, and went to 75 oC under load. So I'd say your temps are on the high side. Is the cooler seated properly with a good quality paste?
  4. It may have been loosened when I shifted my components from one PC case to another, I will have to check. At least I know now I should be no more than 35C given that my cooler is better than stock.

    I knew I had recorded this data somewhere, and just found it. Here is the temperature/load profile for my i5 760 at stock speed (2.8Ghz) with stock cooler (using stock mobo fan settings). I did that so I could compare it with the Hyper 212+. The load rating is for ALL cores, i.e. 100% load = 100% usage on all 4 cores, 26% is 26% load on each of the 4 cores etc.

    CPU Load ......... Temp °C
    100 ................. 80.0
    88 ................... 78.1
    76 ................... 75.0
    63 ................... 71.3
    51 ................... 66.9
    38 ................... 62.7
    26 ................... 58.8
    14 ................... 54.9
    Idle ................. 35.4

    Hope that is of some help.
  6. I've overclocked 3 of them up to 3.8 and 3.9 and the max. temps were around 60.

    I've noticed with some Intel chips that they may not report accurate temperatures at idle. I have a couple that do not go below 40 no matter what.

    Hi,

    What's your results after installing Hyper 212+?
    Thanks

    Ha ha, I should have figured someone would ask that! Anyway, here they are. Again this is for an i5 760 at stock speed (2.8GHz) , with stock mobo fan settings (Gigabyte P55A UD3R) fitted with Hyper 212+ using the thermal paste supplied with the cooler. Really Intel should be supplying these chips with a proper cooler in the first place - that stock cooler is clearly simply hopeless.

    CPU Load ......... Temp °C
    100 ................. 51.0
    88 ................... 48.9
    76 ................... 47.4
    63 ................... 45.7
    51 ................... 43.6
    38 ................... 41.1
    26 ................... 38.9
    14 ................... 37.0
    idle ................. 23.5 (= ambient case temp exactly).

    In the summer I have seen temps spike to as high as 55°C with this cooler under load doing ray tracing (ambient indoor temp was at least 25°C, and case temp around 30°C). For the price the Hyper 212+ is hard to beat IMO.
  9. That is excellent information. Many Thanks!
