Hi all, I have consistently had high temps with my new 5820k build, usually idling in 40, or 41c with no overclock. However, I updated my bios today and they have suddenly gone up sitting at 44 or 45c (based on AIsuite readings, and bios fan control set to standard). I know most people say only load temps count, and I will include those, but this just seems worrying to me. If anyone has any ideas or reasons behind this please let me know.
Things to note:
-My Phanteks Evolv ATX case does not have the greatest airflow where I have my AIO exhausting out the top right now.
-I usually use AI Suite 3 to control my fans, leaving it at standard on CPU fan control, and usually only fiddling with the case fans.
-All benchmarks and temps were taken with all fans at their full speeds.
-Forgive me, these benchmarks are short
-All temperatures given will be the MAX temp recorded during that benchmark, all benchmarks took place 15 minutes apart with the fans on full
-Room of the testing is 23.9c, 75f
