What is normal temp range for i52500k?

I have a Noctua d14 cooling it, idles around 40 degrees and stays around 60 while playing Battlefield 3 beta graphics maxed.

Curious, is this normal?

What is the max temp?

Thanks

  1. depends on ambient temps.If you naturally live in a hot country that has hot ambient temps you would get 37c.I get it with my Zalman cooled pc.

    How many fans are you using on the Noctua and if that is stock clocks it looks a bit hot.

    I have a Thermalright Silverarrow and games would have temps of around 54c with i7 2600k.

    Australia, but it's spring here and not really hot.

    2 fans on the noctua, but my case is like 7 years old and is pretty bad with airflow.

    air cooling needs good airflow so i can see why that you have got bad temps.
    It should at least be a little lower when playing games.
    Maybe you can buy another fan to push or pull the hot air to out the back of the case.
  4. I don't know, seems a bit high to me. Unless you're running some crazy suicide OC :lol:
  5. Hmmm, well next week I am buying a coolermaster haf-x.

    Will that make a big difference?
  6. Hopefully yes. If it doesn't, you need to reseat your heatsink.
  7. arhgg... that is annoying.

    I put a dot in the center the size of a pea, it was my first time building a computer.
    I am hoping that I don't have to mess around with the cooler and thermal paste again...

    practice makes perfect.
    We all dont get it right the first time.
  9. So what is the max temp a 2500k should be hitting when OC'd to 4.5?
  10. You have no problem at all if the temp is below 70. Furthermore I'd only really start to worry if it gets above 75-80, although lower temps are nice from a lifespan point of view, 60 is nothing to get worked up about.

    each cpu is different when needing how much voltage to reach 4.5ghz.
    Dont worry buddy, just make temps as low as you can.
  12. Okay thanks guys.

    I won't worry about it, the new case should bring the temp down a little bit.

    It only hits 60 once and a while, usually stays around 55-58.

    If it goes over 65 when I overclock with the new case I'll reapply the thermal paste.
  13. Oh yeah, I didn't mean to say it sounded dangerously high, just higher than I'd expect from the Noctua.
