2500K @ 4.2ghz, 68c at full load safe? - Page 2

post #11 of 40
yerp 4.6ghz here @1.365VCore i got a CPU thats like VCore i max out at 76C using IBT

and 68C is kinda cold lol

Considering I got 71c out of my 2600k on an A50 in P95. 68c is not cold for an H60 at 4.2.

So, I'm assuming 68c wont cause any degradation, but I can't really go over 4.2ghz? As long as no damage overtime wont happen, I'm happy lol.

Dude, 68C is freaking awesome. The CPU is good to 100C as it is the TjMax, but I would recommend keeping her below 80C.

Although as for me willing to push things, my max is 90C XD

Also heat doesn;t hurt CPUs as much as voltage. Voltage will kill your CPU really quick. Heat is a slow death, but most chips can handle it for YEARS and be fine. Had a friend running a Q6600 that was hitting 80C almost all the time when he did every day tasks for about 2-3 years before it finally thermal shutdown. Took it apart and there was dust everywhere.

I actually tested his CPU in my rig and managed a mean 3.8GHz on it with little issue at 1.5v... vid was 1.21 or something... shoudl have swapped CPUs.


Anyways back on point. Heat is less of a thread to CPUs than voltage.

CPUs are really resilient to heat bro.

Though it's not dangerous, it is unnecessary. If a $30 cooler is cooling better than a $70 one, something's wrong.

Yeah, something is wrong. There's a slight ""trench"/ "engraving"/ "deep scratch"" in my water block.... I took it off again and cleaned the water block really good and I noticed it.. I reapplied some thermal paste again and still the same temps. I'm guessing this might be the cause of it.

Unlike last time, I didn't try to spread the thermal paste. I added a drop of Shin-Etsu in the center of the CPU and placed the cooler on it. Twisted the water block once and screwed it in place.

So is this scratch you're talking about between the left-most two bolts? If so, I doubt that's the cause of your issues. When applying the heatsink, place a rice-grain sized drop of paste in the middle of the IHS, then just push the block to it. Don't twist it, and apply the most even pressure you can. Doing anything else can foul it.

hope the helps

Actually twisting is fine.
