55C to hot for 100 percent load?

Hello, I have been recently working on improving my loop and I was wanting to know if 55 Celcius was to hot for 100 percent load on a i7 2600k?
I'm running 360mm of rad space (1x120 1x240)

More about percent load
  1. I think it's good but I'm not very into the whole water cooling thing so I could be wrong
  2. That is a bit high for just a cpu loop using the equivalent of 360mm of Rads. I've a few questions though; What Rads, pump and fans are you using? What speed are your fans set at? When's the last time you flushed and cleaned your system. Your system specs would be really helpful.
    What program do you use to monitor your temps? Is that 55 Celcius across all four cores? Those sound like the temps I got when using just a Corsair H100. And that's a 240mm rad with stock fans running Prime 95.
  3. Can't say without your ambient temps Cyan, you should know that :P
    more radspace always helps to a point, more fans cooling and you can turn them down for peace and quiet

  4. oh its also cooling dual 560 - TIS
    also idle is about 20c :P
  5. also people neglected to ask what clock speed you are running at.
  6. 4.43GHz

  7. i would not clock on that few of rads try adding another 2 x 120mm rad to the loop
  8. How much Vcore you got cyan? I'm getting 65-70C on air running F@H. 4.5ghz 1.31V.

    your also running a hyper 212+ which is about 10-15 degrees hotter then top of the line air cooling. unless you have gotten a new cooler and havent updated your rig stats on here.

    212 EVO.
  11. I'm running a 2600 (non-k) and cooling SLI 560 Ti's as well. 55C is about right for Intel Burn Test on that CPU at stock speeds.
  12. non-k? WHAT IS THIS!

    yes this is exactly my point. i run the EXACT same overclock and get 55-60 degrees MAX in prime with a much better cooler.
  14. Hmm....

    NH-D14 Cost= $70

    Hyper 212 EVO+Aerocool Shark 120mm= $46

    Price difference: $24
    Temperature Difference: 6-8C

    These things don't make sense to me :/

    run prime blend so that we can have accurate temp comparison. also 6-8 degrees is on the low end. when i had a hyper 212+ on this EXACT same overclock i would get 77-80*c max temps in prime.
  16. Prime blend for how long?

    im running it right now and will report back at 1/2 hour.
