What is your I7-2600K stock temperature?

I get about 38 degrees C at idle with fan around 1500rpm, and about 74 degrees C when all cores are running flat out and fan at around 1900rpm. All stock settings, no overclocking or manual fan control.

To get the full load on all 8 cores I encode a video file using the Handbrake application.

Thanks, stock cooler?

At stock speed, idle around 28 C, max out in the low 50s C

Yes, stock cooler - the one that came in the box with the CPU.

Stock temps are actually pretty much the same as my overclock temps.

Around 30 idle and low to mid 50's at load.

OC is to 4.3 ghz - Using Corsair H70

Background: my case has terrible ventilation at the front and as you will see, an intake fan doesn't really do much. I tried every configuration to find out what the best possible cooling would be under my circumstances. I don't own a hard drive, so perhaps my temperatures are a little cooler than they otherwise would be.

These are stock speeds with stock CPU cooling. The case fans are Zalman ZM-F1 Plus 80MM, which come with a noiseless adapter that lowers the speed of the fan by about 1000 RPM. I eventually settled on a single rear fan with noiseless adapter, but I may need to modify this in the summer when temperatures skyrocket.

Idle
both fans - 24.5ºC
rear fan - 24.5ºC
front fan - 25ºC
front fan, with noiseless adapter - 25.5ºC
rear fan, with noiseless adapter - 25.5ºC
no case fan - 25.5ºC

Load
both fans - 64ºC
rear fan - 65.5
front fan - 71.5ºC
front fan, with noiseless adapter - 71.5ºC
rear fan, with noiseless adapter - 68ºC
rear fan, noiseless, 3.5 bay open in front for more airflow - 67ºC
no case fan - 71.5ºC

Ambient temp - 17ºC

Edited to add: I have an Asus P8H67-PRO motherboard. When using SpeedFan, I notice a temperature indicator for CPU that starts around 90ºC and then drops with load. What's with this?

My stock temp with the stock Intel heatsink was 30C and on load it was going to 80C and beyond.

I switched to Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus and it dropped to 29C idle and 50C on full load. No matter how much the load it doesnt go beyond 50C. I do not overclock.

I highly recommend anything OTHER than the stock cooler - I am surprised Intel ships such a substandard heatsink with its top of the line processor.

I read ambient -17 the first time lol.

I have a Hyper 212+ and am overclocked to 4500MHz. My idle temps hover between 24C-29C and with IBT running on all 8 cores I get as high as 70C. Gaming temps typically run in the mid-to-high 50C's....

Dear good sir, may I ambient temp?

I like to keep it around 73F (23C) in my house...

I also have since upped my clock speed to 4700MHz while lowering my VCore to 1.3v. Now I top out around 68C but at 4700MHz...

due to recent storm approaching Japan suddenly, my load temp caps at 70, and idle drops to 32
