Are this temps ok for a 2500k? Tags: CPUs Core Cooler Master Last response: July 14, 2012 11:35 PM in CPUs Share Farfly July 14, 2012 1:44:32 PM Hi, i just changed my old Cooler Master V8 to a new Noctua d14, which i thought was better, but i dont see any improvements in the temps. This is my rig: Case: Cooler Master storm trooper. Motherboard: Asus z68 v-pro gen3. Processor: Intel i5 2500k. Memory: Kingstom 8gb ddr3. Heatsing: Noctua d14. The thermal compound i use is noctua nt-h1(which i think is no bad). Here i have 28℃-30℃ ambient temperature. And the temperatures of the i5 2500k(stock-no overclock)in idle are: Core 1: 32-38℃ Core 2: 32-38℃ Core 3: 36-42℃(this core is always hotter than the others) Core 4: 30-36℃ And for load are: Core 1: 55-60℃ Core 2: 55-60℃ Core 3: 60-65℃ Core 4: 55-60℃ Are this temperatures ok for a stock 2500k at this ambient temperature. Thanks and regards More about : temps 2500k evolis July 14, 2012 1:58:07 PM those temps are abosutely fine Farfly July 14, 2012 3:37:18 PM Thanks for the reply, i think with this ambient temperature that temps are fine, but why both heatsinks(cm v8 and noctua d14) have the same performance? I thought noctua were better Related resources Yet Another "Are these 2500k Overclock Temps Ok?" - Forum Are my i5 2500K Temps ok? - Forum Are these temps ok for a 2500k? - Forum 2500k @ 4.5GHz are my temps ok? - Forum Hi, are my i5 2500k temps ok ? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Those temps are no where near dangerous or maxing out the thermal juntion. JackNaylorPE a c 229 à CPUs July 14, 2012 6:33:51 PM I'll give ya my son's "1st day" 2600k load temps for comparison (Thermalright Silver Arrow w/ Shin Etsi TIM) .... the 2600k runs about 7C hotter at 4.7Ghz Stock 51,53, 53, 51 (1.224) LLC = Auto So you're running about 12C hotter than his CPU at stock. Here's other temps at various OCs for reference. 4.0 Ghz 52, 54, 55, 52 (1.016-1.024) LLC = Auto 4.2 GHz 54, 56, 57, 55 (1.256 - 1.264) LLC = Auto 4.4 Ghz 56, 60, 60, 67 (1.280 - 1.288) LLC = Auto 4.6 Ghz 62, 66, 68, 65 (1.360 - 1.368) LLC = High 4.8 Ghz 71, 77, 79, 72 (1.408 - 1.416) LLC = Ultra High* * again, these are 1st day ..... we got these down to a bout 67 - 75 max with a bit of tweaking and TIM curing. He's seeing at 4.4 Ghz about what you seeing at stock ..... but what's your room temp.....this was done about 70 - 72 F Diddly July 14, 2012 7:37:00 PM I get 37c at idle 55c load using stock Intel cooler - i5 2500k at stock speed (3.3GHz). Noctua stuff is meant for quiet cooling, but ought to be better than stock Intel cooler. dingo07 July 14, 2012 8:14:23 PM There's other factors involved in determining the effectiveness of the CPU cooler - like the proximity of other devices that generate heat, and the direction of the generated hot air travel inside the case. amuffin a c 186 à CPUs July 14, 2012 8:33:57 PM JackNaylorPE said: 4.8 Ghz 71, 77, 79, 72 (1.408 - 1.416) LLC = Ultra High* Pretty good for an aircooler! My 4.8ghz 2600K on water gets load temps of roughly 63C, but that's with a TON of voltage. Farfly July 14, 2012 11:35:01 PM In the future i would like to overclock a little(4.2ghz), in winter we have about 16-20C room temperature, i think with this noctua d14 i can do it, or not? And other thing, my voltage is in auto, and i see is about 0.90 to 1.12, if i put the voltage in manual with more voltage i will get better temps? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
