Is the i7 2600k max. temp really 72.6C?

Because I was just playing batman Arkham City and two of my cores on the i7 reached 70C degrees.

I have the stock heatsink and no overclock; just base 3.4ghz with turbo boost on I believe.

With stock heatsink, not a surprise. My stock i3-2100 with stock fan on Prime95 would reach 70C, so gaming is around 60C.

Intel stock heatsink is pretty low quality.

I would replace that heatsink I only touch near 70 at 5 GHz at 1.448 volts when running Intel burn test. My i5 at stock runs at 40 degrees load.

No. That is something called Tcase. 72.6C Tcase is the measurement of the IHS. If your cores are even at 100C you will not hit 72C Tcase.

Maximum temp is 98C and starts to throttle at 95C

Thanks so much for the replies. Where did you get the info of the max temp being 99? I always like to find the official source of the information, but I don't see it on the intel page.

And, I agree with you guys that most stock heat sinks aren't as good as aftermarket high end heat sinks.

But it just seems now, it's gotten somewhat outta hand. I mean, the intel stock heatsink is not as good as a Noctua, but surely, they built there high end i7 CPU at intel to atleast come with a moderate CPU cooler correct?

So I'm sure this heatsink should do the job, I'm not overclocking - yet that is.

I wonder if I put it on correctly. This was my first Intel build ever. I heard all the 4 pins snap and I can see them protruding throug the back of the mobo so it looks fine.

So this heatsink should atleast do the job at stock clocks is my philosophy/theory. Maybe it's all just another gimmick and they truly do suck; or maybe most PC enthusiats just want another reason to buy something so they say they suck etc...

Either way, if I do go get a cooler, probably something like a Corsair HXX, I will then probably overclock.

Just wanted to make sure 70's was safe and if there is some official webpage on intel where I could verify that?

Intel stock heatsink is rather just an aluminum block with no heatpipe, a very basic design. It'll work at stock speed, ensuring CPU does not burn itself. If you download a program called RealTemp it'll show you something called distance to TJ Max. What that temperature means is how much more hotter it can get before CPU starts cutting its speed in an attempt to cool itself down.

Max core temp is 98C (Tjunction). Intel recomend a max of 72C for Tcase (the whole CPU).

Just a guess, but I bet the "Package" line in CPUID Hardware Monitor is the "Tcase" smile.gif

Interesting. I downloaded real temp. So when Im at 40's or so, "disntance to TJ max is like 50 so it must be around 100 max temp for the CPU.

I think I'm going to still buy a cooler now though, this site is too addiciting. Thanks for the replies though.
