Ive build three computers with top of the line heatsinks and great airflow cases. Why cant I get the temps that other people are reporting. Every professional that does reviews for Websites or Youtube gets incredibly low temperatures. Its so discouraging.
I live in California and its 26c outside. Im getting 40, 36, 40, 36 using a Noctua NH-U12P on a stock i7 920.
My previous E8500 build was also getting the higher temps. I reseated the heatsink on my E8500 many times but that didnt do a thing so Im not even going to bother reseating my i7 heatsink.
More aboutexpensive cooler high temperatures
check the voltages it might be too programmed to be too high which is cuasing higher temps
anyway those are normal temps for both CPUs
idle is not the problem grasshopper, the problem is load
