Here is my setup...

i5-2500K 3.30 GHz processor

GigaByte Z68X-UD3H-B3 motherboad

Corsair H60 Liquid Cooling System


My case has two fans, one on the cooling system radiator and another on the front of the case.


The temperature in my room is 70 degrees Fahrenheit. My system is not overclocked and I am using the default optimized settings in my bios.

Here are my temps in HW Monitor running blend mode on Prime95 for an hour....


Core #0 52 Celsius
Core #1 55 C
Core #2 58 C
Core #3 57 C
Package 60 C

TPIN0 32 C
TPIN1 25 C
TPIN2 49 C


So are these temps normal or high for my setup? I'm not currently overclocking but plan to in the future.

Good for running prime! It is a load case not seen in normal use.

So that leaves me enough wiggle room to OC? Just asking because I want to make sure this thing is running right before its too late and I can't return it.

I didn't think there could be that much difference between core temps... maybe the monitoring software used to get these temps is wrong?

That is not a big difference!

5 degrees is pretty big compared to mine which is less than 1 degrees difference. But as I am no expert I can not possibly argue :)  hehe

In that case ignore me :)

my i5-2500k even has a diff of 6c...

core0 = 53c
core1 = 59c
core2 = 60c
core3 = 58c

try running Intel Burn Test with 20 runs/standard settings.

IBT produces more heat compared to prime95/occt.
