2600k Idle Temp

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I literally just ran my new build for the first time. No SSD or HDD attached, I just wanted to get to BIOS for now, basically out of curiosity.

BIOS shows my 2600k sitting between 40C and 43C. I have it under water, along with three GTX 570s, cooled by 9 120mm CM Sickleflow fans across three radiators.

I'm concerned that my idle temps are a little high. Am I overreacting, or is this actually something I should be concerned about?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Edit: I haven't overclocked anything yet. Everything is at stock speeds.

IDLE temps are not really important and more importantly BIOS temps aint aswell. The cpu is not really at idle in the BIOS therefore giving you higher tems, once you load up windows and use either realtemp or coretemp I would bet the actual temp would be something like 30/32c.

Dont' worry, go ahead and install windows and you'll see that your temps are actually much lower.

That put my mind at ease. I'll have the build totally running within a day or two. I'll post back here if I have any further problems. Thanks.

Edit: it idles right around 30c and five hours under prime (still stock clocks) gave me a maximum temp of 43c.
