I7 Overheat no overclock

Hello Just finished installing my cpu i7 3770k and my h80 and the cpu is running around at 89-90 degrees F
no overclocking has been done,could it be a faulty corsair h80?

  1. Did you put thermal paste on???
  2. Actually scratch that last question.
    90 F is 32 C which is cool, did you try reapplying the thermal paste?
  3. Best answer
    No need to do anything, actually. 89-90F is great.
  4. Is that temp on full load or on idle?
  5. LOL, if that's full load, the H80 is better than I thought it was... Nah, I'm guessing that's idle, which is fine (especially considering we don't know what the room temp is).

    Although I suppose we should make sure that the OP really DOES mean 89-90 F.

    A faulty HSF would be 90 degrees CELCIUS under light/moderate load.

    90F is my current room temperature so unless you were using vapor-cooling, TEC or some other form of below-ambient cooling, it is effectively impossible for the CPU to be much cooler than that.
  7. Thanx for the replies! Here are my readings from my asus board
    I have just the H80 fans hooked up so far.

    Still have about 11 fans that have not been hooked up.
    temperatures reading and settings ahead! I did re-apply
    some paste on it since the first paste was melted in a day...
    Computer is idle nothing is going on.

  8. Yeah, that's perfectly fine, especially in the BIOS. What is your room temp though?
  9. 60-68 with the Ac on which is currently on now but with out the ac 75.
  10. That's cooler than I would have expected, but I noticed that your motherboard temp is the same as your CPU temp, which is slightly strange, considering that the motherboard temp is usually the ambient air temp inside the case. That shows even more that the H80 is doing a great job.

    Now, check your temps at idle in Windows. The BIOS isn't true idle because the power saving features aren't active.
  11. Any good software that you would recommend for that??
  12. Plenty. HWMonitor, Core Temp and RealTemp are the ones that I usually recommend though.

    The other option is that it shows how incoherent temperature readings between non-calibrated thermal sensors can be.

    If you use a REAL thermometer and attach it to the motherboard's temperature sensor, you may discover that the motherboard sensors are off by 5-10C, same goes for CPU temperatures except there is no practical way of attaching a temperature probe for comparison there.
  14. Will try core temp an post readings
  15. Here it is



  16. Oh yeah, you're good to go.

    You can stress test if you want to check load temps, but I expect that they'll be OK too.
  17. Temps are good.

    Run this now.
