I7-2600K temps Tags: CPUs Cooling Intel i7 Last response: January 29, 2012 4:55 AM in CPUs Share evilbaxter101 January 28, 2012 7:52:14 PM Hi, Im wondering when I should be worried about my new i7-2600K. The idle temps are about 29-30C and under load in Prime95 I get to about 70C. Just wondering if thats about average? If I need to re-seat the H70 or apply new TIM etc... And what other cooler I might want to look at if the H70 isnt capable of properly cooling.

Is it possible to over tighten? Is it an issue with the Arctic Silver 5? (Not sure if the stuff goes bad and mine is a year or two old) or is my H70 just crap? | Report abuse amuffin CPUs Master January 28, 2012 10:51:56 PM when did you apply as5? | Report abuse Related ressources Temps on a i7-2600k @ 4.6 GHz with Cooler Master Evo 212 - Forum CPU Temps - i7-2600k - Forum P8P67 Deluxe w/ i7-2600k Non-OC Core Temps - Forum I7-2600k over temp - Forum New setup - i7-2600k idle temp in low 40s with CM 212+ - Forum Ask the community Publish bearclaw99 CPUs Authority January 28, 2012 10:51:58 PM That's about exactly what I get but with mine @ 4.6 ghz. Are you on stock settings? | Report abuse evilbaxter101 January 28, 2012 11:24:22 PM Applied AS5 about 3 days ago and ran prime95 for about 18 hours that day and for a few hours since. I know it takes a while for AS5 to really start working properly. Im sure im just paranoid about the whole thing. Just want to make sure its not running hotter than it should be. | Report abuse anort3 CPUs Master January 29, 2012 12:45:53 AM I agree with Bearclaw99. Those temps look just like mine at 4.5Ghz. Are you overclocked? If not then somethings wrong. | Report abuse evilbaxter101 January 29, 2012 2:52:56 AM The turbo-boost is set to 4.3 according to my bios so when I run prime95 its hits 4.3 and around 70c. | Report abuse anort3 CPUs Master January 29, 2012 3:05:06 AM Are your voltages set to auto? If so you can probably lower them. I am at 4.5Ghz at 1.32v. | Report abuse jsc CPUs Master January 29, 2012 3:12:52 AM Your temps are fine for how you are operating. You will do better by not using Turbo Boost and doing a proper overclock in the BIOS. | Report abuse evilbaxter101 January 29, 2012 4:55:39 AM I havnt touched the voltages or anything. Im using a new ASUS board so I set it to "ASUS Optimal" settings but I havnt done/dont know how to do any overclocking or tweaking so I havnt touched any of the voltages or anything like that. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>I7-2600K temps> Related ressources: ForumI7-2600k over temp ForumI7-2600k 98c temp on load ForumIntel Core i7-2600K Temp ForumMax Temperatures of i7-2600k ?
