i7 920 D0 OC Threshhold Temp

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I like to have my load temps somewhere in the low 70s but I cannot seem to get to 4.0 without hitting the 80 mark in my mid tower with a V8 CM air cooler.

Is 80-85 at 100% load ok?

its high but youll never see those temps unless you are at 100% load. the temps are normal for air cooling. i am on a h50 that is like a high end air coller and my temps at 4.0 were about the same

Thx for replies guys. My idles are around low to mid 40s. I have just done an 11 minute OCCT and the temps fluctuated up to

C1: 82
C2: 85-86
C3: 79
C4: 82

You guys think the cooler has bent the mobo or needs re-seating?

Thats a 32nm processor for ya, the 920 is a 45nm .... quite a big difference in terms of heat generation.

lol i think your Mobo and HSF seating are fine. i7 920s just run hot thats all. your are seeing normal temps for what your doing and without gettnig a better cooling system your temps won't drop with a 4.0 OC. like i said my H50 wont drop them. an H100 would as would the Rasa kit. they are both around $100-130
