i7 2600k,NH-D14 question - Page 2

post #11 of 12
The temps themselves are VERY safe, don't listen to the people saying you need to be under 70C max in Prime. 75C in prime is like under 65C outside of stress testing (and thats MAX)... and there's really no reason you need to be below 70C in daily use when you have a chip that can go up to 98C before throttling.

As for those being typical temps, as I tell everyone go look at the Sandy Stable thread because there are temps/voltages/clock/cpu in table format for long-run Prime blend tests. It depends whether you have HT on or off, since you didn't mention it I assume it is on. Ambient temp etc... if you think you can do a better job with the TIM, its always a good idea to try. I think there's a small chance you could do better, really though I can't say that with any confidence because I don't know your ambient temp.

He thinks his room is at about 27-29°C.
