Is My CPU Running Alright? Tags: CPUs Build Last response: July 26, 2012 11:18 AM in CPUs Share jaigo11 July 26, 2012 10:10:23 AM Hey guys I have got my build up and running but I am concerned about the temps and speed of my CPU I have an i7 3770k with stock heatsink. Heres a pic of coretemp and CPU-Z while running prime95. I would like to know if these temps are okay and I dont know if my CPU is overclocked or not. I might upgrade CPU fan soo though Thanks More about : cpu running alright jay_nar2012 a c 83 à CPUs July 26, 2012 10:16:30 AM Your idle temps are good but your load temps are bad (60oC difference), apparently your CPU is overclocked either 700MHz or 300MHz (from turbo boost speed). I would get a after market cooler for ivy bridges, they aren't as cool as sandy bridges. rolli59 a c 622 à CPUs July 26, 2012 11:06:21 AM Stock heatsink might not be enough running Prime so what is it on normal load? As said above if you are overclocking it you will need an after market cooler.
