Are my temps too high?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Attachment 212517

My current overclock isnt bad, but temps are in the 80s under load, so I wanted to try a new overclock, see if I can get lower v-core to lower the temps. Aiming for 4.0-4.2 as an overclock depending on volts and temps.

Ambient temps: 23
idle temps: 37,39,40,35
load: 69,69,66,63
v-core: 1.272 everything else in bios set manual to regular freq.
overclocked currently at 3.8

Let me know guys, also any suggestions to replace current h2o gear highly appreciated.

Those temps are a bit high if you're running a full loop - it also looks like your processor isn't seated correctly or has some evenness issues as cores 0,1 are almost 70 and cores 2,3 are in the low - mid 60's.

Also often that amount of memory is hard on the IMC and can make overclocking a bit troublesome

How much do you have to spend?

That rad is in the lower end of the the 360mm market, I'd expect the black ice GTX 240 to out perform it.

The waterblock is absolutely fine, I would probably start off with changing your multi to 20*200 for 4Ghz and start voltages at 1.3 on your Vcore and increase/decrease from there for stability. Also, that difference between the cores isn't odd tbh. 3 - 5 degrees is kinda normal tbh.

Thanks for the info! Im gonna try the different multi's that you provided, and see what happens.
