I own a built computer from cyberpower, the CPU is an I7-2600k with a Corsair H60, when i check bios it is saying around 80C and when i get all booted Coretemp says 80C but quickly drops it to 45C which i feel is still warm for idle! other stats are 8gb 4x2 adata gaming series 1600mhz , z68a-d3h-b3 gigabyte mobo, Hiatchi 7200rpm 64mb 2tb hdd, standard 120mm fan on h60 and in front of case pulling in with a 200mm fan on side pulling out. Thermaltake 1000w TR2, kingston hyperx ram cooler, powercolor amd 6970 GPU case temp is 27C *edit* also my operating system is win 7 ult.
The Corsair H2O coolers are thermally inefficient compared to quality HSFs but your temps should not skyrocket like that when the CPU is under load. You can use "Core Temp" to monitor the CPU temps real time.
Ok guys i took the pump off and cleaned and used artic silver 5, bought 2 new fans to make push pull on rad (sickleflow 120s) droped my idle temp from 45C to 29C thx for the imput!
Awesome catch for the problem and good fix. I am shocked Cyberpower doesn't test their PCs before shipping. Who assembles these things? Even with the worst thermal paste in the world, how could you get those temps?
