Are these temps too high?

Are these temperatures too high at stock speed?



The case I am using is a big xigamtek midguard with 4 120mm case fans.

More about temps high
  1. Ok thanks so with that in mind my CPU should be giving me temps at 35 degrees today idle. I was hoping to go back down to a smaller case now I've switched from AMD to Intel, the temps have surprised me.
  2. the plastic intel heat sink if the legs are not in all the way can cause a cpu to run hot. most times i switch out the intel heat sink for a cheap 212 heat sink or a ball bering fan that has a back plate and screws.

    CPU temps are different from CPU core temps, and idle is much less of a concern than "under load".

    Download and run OCCT and look for something along these lines (2600k, HT enabled):

    Stock 51,53, 53, 51
    4.0 Ghz 52, 54, 55, 52
    4.2 GHz 54, 56, 57, 55
    4.4 Ghz 56, 60, 60, 67
    4.6 Ghz 62, 66, 68, 65
    4.8 Ghz 67, 71, 73, 70

    Disabling HT will drop ya temps as much a 7C at the 4.8 Ghz point

    Thanks I downloaded and run it for 12 minutes and at stock the tempertures above are the ones I got.

    The idle temps are exactly the ones PC wizard give me in the 30's. The akasa 968 cooler might be ok after all. I will run for a hour and see what I get.
