Cooling situation for 2600k

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I just got a 2600k this past Friday and everything seemed fine using the stock cooler playing some BF3 beta. But today I brought up Asus Probe utility and EVGAs Precision utility to see how my temps were. I turned on BF3 beta and my temps shot way up. At idle my cpu is at 30-31 but while testing with BF3 it went up to 72 which brought up a warning from my mobo. I dont remember what my 580 went to, around 60 or something.

What sort of temps should I be seeing? This is in a Coolermaster haf 922.

Also whats the best way to monitor temps?

for stock cooling 72c aint that bad, I woudl have thought it would be much higher. For temp reading I recommending using realtemp, you can download it from here: http://majorgeeks.com/Real_Temp_d6098.html

Also I do recommend investing in an aftermarket cooler, one that is very popular is the CM 212+, it's cheap and very effective, has the ability to maintain temps well even at a 4.5ghz overclock.

hope that helps.

Probe reads the Tcase temp while real temp reads the core temps.

So I just played a couple rounds of BF3 beta Metro map and my temps by the end were...

cpu 87
gpu 80

Are those too high?

Your cpu can operate at those temps for years, but you should still invest in an aftermarket cooler. For home or office use a cpu is not running full tilt for prolonged perids of time - so Intel gives out ok coolers (it saves them money too). Gaming is different and don't even think about overclocking on a stock cooler.
There are a ton of great options out there. If you have never added an aftermarket cooler read up on how to install the TIM. Getting enough thermal grease on, without using too much seems to be a common problem. And it is very important to do that step properly so you get good, even contact/cooling. Don't spread it with your finger either - you don't want finger oil in it.
I've always wrapped a little plastic wrap over my finger tip and then covered the whole cpu top - never trusted the "blob in the middle" approach to spread over the whole chip.

Enjoy!

87 is way too much, buy at least coolermaster hyper 212+ which is not that expensive..
