2500k Temps? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
With 10 min torture tests the results are: (Using prime95 maximum stress/load)
Core #0 52
Core #1 54
Core #2 54
Core #3 53
(Wonder why Core 0 is so much cooler?

Keep in mind I just installed the CPU today so the AS5 prolly needs a little time to settle im guessing?

Using the reasoning employed by yourself, why would anyone (excluding those who fold, etc 24/7) even bother with Prime? It would be a pointless test, given that you're never going to experience such loading in day-to-day usage.

IBT (with AVX) is a quick way to ensure stability and cooling performance.
Who said anything about stability testing? Stability testing is subjective, I was mainly talking about temperature.

There you go again with IBT and cooling performance, using prime blend is as close to everyday general usage you're going to get, making it more optimal not overkill like the temperature IBT produces. If I want by IBT temps I would probably be recommended to tone down my overclock which I don't have to because when gaming my temps don't even reach 65c.

It's a bit like purchasing a PSU, some will base it on general usage (gaming and 3dmark benching etc), other's will base it on extreme usage like max overclocking (every last mhz you can get and extreme benching) and there are a some that will combine the extreme usage and run prime and furmark together to create an overkill condition, so recommending on that basis without notifying the OP would be stupid, completely overkill and a waste of money.

My point is I see people recommend other's to tone down overclock's and sometimes even recommend better cooling for a particular overclock because the temps have exceeded 85c with IBT while running something which is more optimal and comparable to general everyday usage like prime95, the temps will be something like 70c, which is absolutly fine.

Is the cpu overclocked?

Looks fine to me for stock, is that under blend test or small fft's? small fft's will generate more heat but it's not really a good stability tester mind you, blend with 80/90% RAM is more favorable.

Core temps can vary upto 9/10c, it's normal on these chips

That's not opinon it''s fact. I could show you how the prime blend temps are 10c lower on my rig than when using IBT. If I want by IBT temps I would probably be recommended to tone down my overclock which I don't have to because when gaming my temps don't even reach 65c.

It's a bit like purchasing a PSU, some will base it on general usage, other's will bas it on extreme usage liek max overclocking (every last mhz you can get) and there are a some that will combine the extreme usage and run prime and furmark together to create an overkill condition, so recommending on that basis without notyfing the OP would be stupid, completely overkill and a waste of money.

It was large FFT's and yea it's stock. But I did it with Blend as well, temps basically the same (actually maybe 1 degrees cooler for each core)

Its fine bud

Now go ahead and overclock that baby!!! lol if you need any help, have a little read over at the stable thread, the OP has a lot of info and a guide that you could follow, once you start getting the hang of thing's you can start comparing with other's. Use the spreadsheet for all comparison's, voltage, cooling and temps

Ya I'll prolly do that, nothing too extreme....but a slight OC wouldn't hurt ;-D.
