Are my i5-3570k temps within range?

Hi All,

I just installed my new i5-3570k proce running the stock H/S and fan. What I noticed was that it is half the height of my old C2D. It almost looks identical with my C2D 775, can I use that instead? How do my temps looks with the current load? I have one intake fan pushing air over my HDs in the front, and two 80mm in the rear.

Thanks

Your temps are fine.

Are these idle temperatures or 100% load temperatures? If they're idle, it's running EXTREMELY hot.

Also, no, I don't think you can use your 775 cooler on 1155 sockets, they look very identical but the hole positioning is slightly off.

The hole placement for LGA775 and LGA1155 is different, the 1155 ones are further apart by a few millimeters. You cannot swap stock HSF between those two sockets.

Although it may make some people around here itchy, 70C max core temperature on stock cooler is fine.

At 45W package power, it definitely is not idle.

Sorry forgot to mention that this was with 100% load on all 4 CPUs while video encoding. Thanks for the information about using the stock 775 cooler.

Do these procs run cooler compared to my outgoing C2D E6850? I didn't take max load temps before disassembling the old setup.

Didn't notice that, thank you for pointing that out.

New CPUs tend to have lower TDP but also less surface area to get their heat out so temperatures end up staying more or less in the same ranges except for IB which has a 5-10C handicap due to using paste instead of solder between the CPU and IHS.

I'm using Arctic Silver5 instead of the stock paste. Should I be using something else instead (such as Ceramique) or is this sufficient?

That's plenty sufficient.

AS5 usually takes a little bit of time to reach optimal performance, so I wouldn't be surprised if your temperatures drop over time by a few degrees.

Thanks I really appreciate everyone's insight. I was reading the install doc and it said it could take up to 200 hours before it reaches optimum transfer...lol

Looks spot on for 100% load and stock cooling. I've heard of the 775 HSF mounting fine on the 1155 but if you aren't looking into aftermarket HSF for your CPU I'd just stick with the one that came with your recent processor!

Enjoy the CPU
