Hyper 212+ and 3570k temps

Hi, I am building a new system and Ive got an Intel 3570k paired with the Cooler Master Hyper212+ heatsink/w included fan. Ive got the HSF sitting on Artic Silver paste. The idle temp reported by the UEFI is around 38-39c. Ambient temps around 23c. Is this temp in the normal range??

I know the Hyper212+ isn't exactly top-of-the-line HSF. but is there something I can do to improve the numbers? Im not really impressed with the included fan.. seems cheap and a little noisy.

  1. actually 39c is pretty good for an ivy bridge could you stress it with prime95 or something like that to get the load temps

    I will do that, just a little surpised as my Sandy Bridge with the same cooler is around 32-33c. I knew Ivy was hotter... just didn't know by that much! I'll try to get some load numbers up asap.

    ok ya load temps would help and yes ivy bridge is very hot compared to sandy bridge
  4. My 3570k runs at about 28-32 idle with Intel stock cooler. I must have a good chip. I over blocked it a little for giggles and load temp was 73 at 4.2 running prime95 about 2 hours never touched voltage. Too broke right now to buy a better cooler so I'm running stock speeds though.
  5. really 73c at 4.3Ghz that is a damn good chip for the 212+ those temps are amazing even for ivy bridge which is about 10c hotter than sandy bridge
  6. Ivy Bridge typically runs 10C hotter than Sandy Bridge. I would not worry about idle temps, its the load temps you need to watch. In folding@home, my 3.4ghz hyperthreaded xeon runs at a max of 58-60 degrees with eight threads fully loaded 24/7.
