Temp fluctuation

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I just got my 2600k lastnight and noticed that the core temps fluctuate quite a bit. One core might be 65, another might be 71 and going up and down a bit? I've read in a few places this is pretty normal?

It is indeed normal unless these are your idle temps.

Idle is normal, it's only under load. Thanks for the confirmation This AMD to Intel switch has been fun!

You're welcome!

I suppose I should ask, though: what core voltage in CPU-Z do you see when you see these temps?

I'm still fine tuning everything. 1.312 @ 4.4ghz right now and very stable, I think I can get it a bit lower, I haven't been able to touch it yet as I'm at work.

Hmm...

What's the approximate room temperature? I mean these temps are a little higher than I would expect for this voltage and overclock.

25c roughly. But the computer is near a window, with drapes. Oh and I'm in Florida lol. I thought it was a bit high as well, but since I have put the heatsink on lastnight the temps have dropped 2-3c. So I am thinking if I can lower the vcore a bit more I'll be good to go.

These temps are very safe, but I'm just thinking that they should be a little lower with this voltage and overclock.

Did you apply the thermal paste in between the heatpipes before applying paste normally?

I did, I think I did a pretty good job, that's why I was so surprised with the temps. I'm glad they are safe, but with only being able to tweak things for about 2 hours, it's a good start
