So based on my system what should my temps be? What should my idle temp be? I've looked and looked and have not found any baseline #'s to go by. There are countless temps with folks overclocks but nothing for stock setups.
I'm just thinking with that Noctua my temps should be lower than they are. Shrug. I live in Arizona so it's pretty hot in the summer time. Typically 95f +, and we usually keep the house at 72f at the tstat which translates to a few degrees higher in the office where the pc is.
Also note I do have the iGPU turned on and enabled.
Here is a pic of my readings. This was just sitting there at my desktop with AI Suite II, Real Temp, and this explorer window. Not sure what the ambient temp in the room is but the thermostat for the AC on the house is set to 70f. I'd guess it's maybe 72-74f max where the PC is located.
Also noticed the Real Temp icon on the task bar next to the quick launch icons shows 46 degrees. What is that? Just the icon or something else?
So with all that said and my previous posts with specs etc. Is this temp where it should be or is it high? Thanks!
Keep in mind I have the iGPU enabled. I'm assuming that's why 2 of the other cores are warmer. Just in case it's hard to see the pic the temps are.
25 22 33 31 Temp in C
80 83 72 74 Distance to TJmax
23 21 30 29 Minimum
32 26 36 36 Maximum
ok ok ok ok Thermal Status
It was running for 15 minutes. AI Suite II reports 27c cpu temp and 26c mb temp with the Noctua fan speed at 1313 rpm. All of the case fans are hooked up to a molex connector. They aren't connected to the MB this the reason there isn't any readings from them in AI Suite. I'm assuming they are running at full speed since fan expert isn't in the mix. I suppose I could hook them up to the mobo if it will buy me anything. I just didn't want a rats nest of wires all over.
and yes the 46 on the task bar icon is just way the icon looks
The second set of temps was from about 3 hours of Diablo 3 game play with a couple explorer windows open etc. Looks like all the cores are within a couple of degrees of each other. I'm not sure what kind of strain D3 puts on the system but the temps for sure went up from idle. Case is all closed up as well not open like a lot of folks that post temps.
I'm still a bit concerned about the 2 cores that hit 46 and 48. Seems a bit high to me, no? Maybe I'm expecting too much from the NH-D14 cooler? When I go to OC the cpu later on I don't want to have any issues. I'm thinking 4.2 - 4.4 oc with hopefully around 60c load temps. Do you think it will be possible with what we have seen thus far?
What temp range should we see on the Ivy Bridge stuff? What is acceptable and with in the norm so to speak? Any additional information you or anyone else could supply to further educate myself is greatly appreciated.
