Core i7-2600k temperature

hi,I bought core i7-2600k the other day,along with ASUS P8P67 Deluxe motherboard,and 8 gig Corsair Ram,,,,,,I run the set up before installing OS,,,,the set up shows the temperature of the CPU about 64'C,,,,Is it normal? I think it is higher than normal? Am I right? Please help me as I am worried about its temperature and think it may cause trouble during further deeds like gaming or ....please help

  1. if not in use (and not overclocked), that temp is way too high.
    (are you certain its celsius?)

    check if the cooler is installed correctly and if there isnt too little or too much cool-paste applied.

    it there is still a problem, install the OS and use some different temp-monitoring programs...
  2. IMO you should only be worried if temps go above 73C.

    I don't have a Sandy Bridge so I don't know what temperatures to expect, but for the i7-2600K, maximum safe temp is 72.6C
  3. thanks guys,,,,i searched and found that when we are in BIOS,the Cpu runs at its full load,so the temperature is normal,,,,but i will search more to find some absolute answers,,,thanks anyway
  4. But should I be worried if it hits 55-ish at any slightest of load?

    No,I forgot to say that when I bought it,my friend tested it and put it under strain in win 7,and told me that the temperature hadn't gone over 65'C,,,,,unfortunately I wasnt at my friend's place at the time of testing,I just remembered his saying,,,so according to my findings and my friend's saying,there's nothing to worry about
  6. The 72.6c Max is Tcase not Tjmax, in most temp monitoring hardware programs read your tjmax not your tcase. Tjmax for SandyBridge is around 98c. Under stock cooler i would say 65 is normal. as for 73 id say your getting on warm side but nothing that is going to do Damage.
  7. In bios the chip doesn't run full load or flat out, however you want to call it. Rather it runs full frequency at near idle. 64c in my opinion is too warm for bios temps, you should reinstall the heatsink. I'm assuming you have the stock fan, so the crappy push pins are most likely the culprit.

    But the cpu temperature at the windows is around 35'C,,,,and when I enter the BIOS,it gets 65'C,,,,so I think the heatsink is set properly

    yeah perhaps cpu wont run that efficiently in bios, or possibly at full clock with no speedstep.
  10. yea i also have the i7-2600k with p8z68 delux and kingstone hyper x(2133),gtx 560ti
    on standard it was 50 deg c no load and loaded about 75 deg c.
    overclocked it to 4.5ghz put coolermaster hyper 612 with 2 120mm fans now running at 40 no load and 75 dec c loaded.
    Been running it like that for 8 months now no problem.
    DONT WORRRY
