2600k high temps?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
It idles at about 24C on the lowest core and 32 on the highest. Under load it gets to about 45C. I didn't overclock it yet, just got the mobo yesterday and set everything up. I ran leak test for about 9 hours today so the real big air bubbles should be gone, right? I guess I'll try to re-seat the block, but just wanted your opinions real quick. I mean, my 870 only hit about 55 underload and it was at 4.1GHz.

Oh yeah, it's watercooled with an EK SupremeHF and an EK 360 rad, plus a second 240 rad on the GPU. My GPU temps don't seem too different either. Thanks.

Which thermal paste did you use? if you just set up it, remember there's a cure time for some paste's and you'll have to wait until afterwards to have full effect.

You've got lots of cooling power so it's most likely either the paste or a bad seating

I used arctic silver 5. I think later I may try to re seat it just in case. Also I never know how tight to tighten the block. I'm always too scared that I'll crack my mobo, so maybe there isn't enough pressure?

Mine idles at similar temps with one core 8 degrees hotter. It could that your chip isnt very flat like mine was. Only way to fix that is to grind it flat which voids warranty. My advice is to learn to live with it.

Unless you want to push very high voltage through,(1.4 plus) the reduced temps at load wont matter anyway. If youre not going over 60 is isnt worth messing with.

Yeah, well I want to overclock it soon. I was hoping to get close to 5GHz 60C isn't too far away...
