An idea of 2500k temps [stock vs. Overclocked]

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. Can you give me an idea of where I should be with my temps at certain voltage intervals with this setup?

My case has 4 fans and a cooler master hyper 212 and it was pushing 84C on 1.400V while prime95'd... Is this really high??

CPU - Intel i5 2500K
MOBO - Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3
RAM -G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1866
CASE - Black Antec One Hundred Ice Mid
PSU - Antec EarthWatts Series EA-750 Green 750W
HSF - Cooler Master Hyper 212
Paste - Prolimatech PRO-PK1-5G PK-1 Therma

Going back to stock to get a baseline.
edit: In prime95 on stock voltage (1.240V) I'm at 57C.

You're probably in a better position to answer this than any of us are. We don't know your ambient temps, and we don't know what kind of fan setup you have going (i.e., what kind of fans, how much cfm, etc.).

That being said, 1.4 volts is safe, but the temp is a bit high for what I'd expect at 1.4 volts. It's not unsafe, but it's not a lot of headroom for more overclocking either.

Edit: grammar

Bad answer, no I'm not, lol. Between 56C and 58C under Prime95 load (Stock Voltage, Stock Clock). Just killed Prime95 and I'm at 32C idling.

The fans are the ones that came with the CPU case. I think they're 4 120mm fans... 2 at the front, 1 at the top, 1 at the back..

Does this help? I'm just worried that I did a ****ty job applying the thermal paste or fastening the heatsink to the processor... This is my first build.

Everything sounds fine to me so far.

I'd say around 70C for 4.5 will be normal-range with that cooler.

Any other input is welcome.

I'm at 1.280V at 4.53GHz right now @ 67C

I would just go back in and repaste the processor, but it's going to be a ***** to do.

Your temps sound about right. What frequency was your 2500K clocked at for 1.4Volts?

I didn't prime it long because I honestly am not sure what I'm doing (seriously. I read a thread about how to overclock with the Asus Board and went with it.... I am built for it though)

It was running at 4.8

Running at 1.295V @ 69 degrees at 4.533GHz at the moment.... Going to let it prime for the night and see where I am in the morning.

This is a good overclock if it is run under full load. That is running prime95. You should run prime95 for about 12 hours to see if its stable. I think you could push this chip to 4.8 on yor cm. Higher on a higher end cooler smile.gif

You have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO??

Unless you keep your place real toasty, those temps are garbage. wth.gif

Check your ambient temp (thermostat, whatever) reseat the cooler and leave the case open on it's side for a few runs. Keep using the same test, whatever it is you're setting up in Prime.

Wow. You probably want to make sure you're doing the paste right, too. Between BB and Pea size in the center of the chip.

Man. Are you using Real Temp or something that is reading diode, or looking at "CPU" temp? (aka TCase, aka useless)

(Edit.. Honestly, my cooler is just slightly more effective than yours and it's doing much better than that. Your processor will live, but don't leave it like that for no reason.)
