2600k Overheating Tags: CPUs Overclocking Last response: September 30, 2011 12:15 AM in Overclocking Share MrConcept September 29, 2011 11:46:52 AM Hey guys, I've done a bit of a search on Google but I can't seem to find the ultimate answer. I've got an i7-2600k in an Asus P8P67 with the stock cooler attached. I used the TPU switch and OC Tuner in the bios, which didn't seem to budge the temperature too much, but I tried running handbrake to encode some videos and it rapidly increases to above 90 degrees. I've heard that you can get some quite stable overclock speeds using the stock cooler, and I'm pretty sure it shouldn't be hitting 90 degrees that quickly/easily. I recently re-greased (Arctic Silver) and I don't see any other reasons for this. Any help would be appreciated!

That being said, high fast do you have the CPU cranked up to?

Reset BIOS to defaults and get a better cooler. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedIs my 2600K overheating?
