H70+2600k, should I do a re-seat?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I've only had my 2600k for a few months now. I'm wondering if the temperatures I'm getting are what I should be getting with my ambient/overclock in effect.

4.5Ghz @ 1.375v.

Max temp after roughly 30 minutes with Blend: 80c on core 3.

Specific core max temps.

Core 1: 70c
Core 2: 78c
Core 3: 80c
Core 4: 78c

Outside temperature at time of testing: 60F.

Room temperature: With air conditioner on, I'm going to guess it's anywhere in the 40s.

I have both of the stock corsair fans running in Push/Pull config. Here's the fan RPMs according to AIDA64:

CPU: 1412 RPM

Chassis: 1942 RPM

Chassis: 1246 RPM

I'd also probably add that I am crossfiring two 5850s, each idle around 35-40c.

Hyper Threading is enabled. I have never replace the stock paste. I read the stock paste is shin etsu so I decided to leave it on as it came. I have never added any after market paste. The paste I would replace the stock paste with would be AC MX-2. My case only has three fans. Two stock H70 Corsair fans, and then a fan at the front of the case.

Do those temperatures sound normal with the information given, or should I do a re-seat with the AC-MX2 paste? Oh, and before you tell me. Yes, I know the H70 is not a spectacular cooler. Believe me, if I had the money right now I would go custom watercooling, but I do not.

I would reseat. They use wayyy too much TIM on those H series. I had a H50, reseating with MX4 droppes my temps by 5 degrees

Those temps do look a little high. I would remove and reapply the thermal compound and then re-seat it.

Temps are that of an acceptable range, not to bash the h70 but it is only good as the top tier air coolers (you probably know that). Temps to me seem normal for a h70 with stock fans at that kind of voltage and freq. I am not an expert with the corsair hydro series but this is just my opinion, I wouldnt loose sleep on those temps.

That's actually what I read, too. I read the paste is great, but the method in which it was applied is horrible.

The issue you're having is your different speeds on your push pull config. The fact that one is running 700RPM slower is going to screw up your performance.

Xfire is going to put a fair amount of heat into your case. In short though I think it's the fans causing your higher temp.

Also, the stock thermal paste is pretty good shin etsu.

It's a thin layer.... It's far from a lot.

Damn it, double post :S

I actually never noticed that... Any reason why it's doing that?

I think he meant the speed of the slower one determine the overall airflow through the heatsink.

I understood exactly what he was saying, but why is one fan running 700RPM slower than the other? That is what I do not understand.
