shouldn't these temps be lower?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hey
I just installed the Cooler Master 212+ and my max temps at load (Prime95) went down from 82 to 61. However there is no overclock on this CPU yet and I think that these temps should be lower anyway. (I haven't messed in the BIOS at all.)
Granted I don't have too many fans and my case isn't too great (actually preety bad), but soon I want to get a new one that'll allow me to hide the cables a bit more and improve the airflow as I only have an exhaust fan at the back. Furthermore in that case I will install two more fans - how much will these help? (top exhaust 140mm and front intake 120mm).
Since this is my first time overclocking and installing an aftermarket cooler I'm afraid I could've applied TIM wrong
My room temperature is about 18-20°C.

Thanks

I included what I got at 4.5GHz. I can't get it stable when I turn off auto voltage, I'm up to 1.34 so far

21 oc drop in temp is very nice considering all you done is change the heatsink and the tim 61oc isnt bad under fully load so dont feel too bad, all you need is a new case with better air flow and you should have better temps

well, I also tidied the cables up a bit, because they were all over the place - this is the best I could get them to be
with a new case and two additionall fans how much do you think these temps will decrease? around 5°C?

Your temps in general are high (before/after) but a 20C drop is pretty outstanding.

Well as far as I go, maybe you can pull something out of this. I have a 1090t 6 core and it idles at around 25 with the fan at 30%. With basically the same style cooler. I agree with ryanbob. You just need a better case, I only see two 80mm slots in your case. I have three 120 and one 140. Hopefully you can get this worked out If all else fails, you can also re-seat your cooler on your CPU to make sure the fitting is perfect.

Its not so bad, I mean the Intel chips are designed to take over 70 and if its at 61 now it should be oki doki! When you switch out that case you'll find that the temps will drop significantly.

Im AMD and getting around 32 idle and 48 load but my case has decent airflow.

This is probably to do with the bad case or me being useless at applying TIM.

I hope that I will see a drop in temps with a new case, but remember that this is not OC'd at all.
I'm gonna try and OC it today and I'll post what I get in this thread so please don't forget about me

This is what I managed so far. I know I need to run prime a lot longer to get stability, but is it okay so far?
Also I'm not sure what settings I should set for all of those different things in the BIOS, the only thing that I've been doing is changing the turbo and left everything else on auto, so what should those settings be?
Voltage came out to be 1.33 (it was on auto). Should I decrease it?
