Hey Guys so i built a new gaming system a little bit ago. I have a i7 3770k with a Corsair H100 on it. I have been using HWmonitor and was wondering if someone could give me some info on the temps i getting. I have Overclocked the 3770k To 4.4GHZ using my maximus v formula MB software. I am getting an idle Temp of about 35 degrees. Now playing Far Cry 3 for about 4 hours while running HW and My max Temp on the 4 cores is about 65 degrees. I was wondering what others are getting and if these temps are good for 4.4GHZ Overclocked and can i go to 4.6 without any issues? thanks guys.
As long as 65 is the absolute highest temperature then you should be fine, that's nearing the max. Core speed does affect the temp but voltage does more, I think you should just stick with that. Maybe you could even possibly lower the voltage down a notch and see if you could raise the core speed a tad?
