41C CPU Temp in UEFI - (I7 3820 + H80 cooler ) is this normal???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So pretty much like the post states. Is 41C a normal temp while in UEFI for the 3820 if hooked up to an H80 cooler? I can't find online anywhere that states what "normal" CPU temps in UEFI for this chip are.

Trying to decide if I need to reseat the cooler (smudged the preapplied TIM a bit during installation). Thanks for your help!

Please don't post multiple times on the same topic ( http://www.overclock.net/t/1248734/new-build-3820-asrock-x79-extreme6-h80-6950-2gb-questions#post_17079804 ) - Your bios temps are nothing to worry about, and as for the smudging, I can't say how much you smudged it but remember that when you're mounting the cooler it is "smudging" the thermal paste onto the CPU anyway, so it shouldn't be anything to worry about.

My advice is to assemble the computer into the case, install windows, drivers, etc. and then load up a program such as Core Temp, turn on an instance of Prime95, or LinX and run for about an hour and check your load temps (as those are all that matter, idle temps are useless) - if you think they are an issue, come back to this page and post and we can go from there thumb.gif

Otherwise enjoy your perfectly normal running high end desktop!

Bios is 100% cpu usage, when you get into windows and it's at idle at that temp then worry but bios does that.

Well, not sure what happened to my last post as it is gone now. Anyhow, I created this thread because I was receiving no responses on my build log thread. I have found that people on OCN tend to respond to threads dedicated to specific questions much faster than generic threads/posts.

I posted this thread and received a response very shortly after it. I still haven't yet received any response on my build log. No biggie, I'm sure someone would eventually.

Anyhow, that is my reason for starting this thread.

Thanks for the great info guys. I gave you each a rep point. Can't wait to get home and finish building my new baby!


Thanks again!

Hello,

I recently put together a new build, using the I7-3820, ASUS Rampage IV Formula, Corsair H80i water cooling, etc.

In the past 6 years, when I put together a system, the temps on the CPU were 3 degrees below room temp, at idle. I do NOT overclock, etc. My last i7-870 [4 cores] was like that. At max, converting videos, it would run at most 55C.

This new build at idle has temps from 25c to 33c on the 4 cores. Just a little 'work' puts the temps at 45c.

Did I miss something? is this range of temps normal for the i7-3820?

If you have any notions, do let me know.

Best regards

A few days have gone by.

I did some video conversions. This has usually put the cpu (all 4 / 8) at 98 percent. However, this time, max of 85 percent, on only a few of the CPUs. And max temp was 55c.

Conclusion, the CPU runs hot because it is overclocked, but NOT by me. Once I put some load on the cpu, it showed how 'impressive' it is at work. The temps only went up a little from the idle (max of 20c) to the max load I put on it.

I will continue to monitor, but it looks like I will be more 'careful' about my next purchase of a CPU. I am NOT interested in an overclocked CPU, but want reliability! I want it to run quietly hour after hour, day after day. I seldom shut down my PC, and with my full sine-wave UPS I have no need to worry about power outages (for 2 hours).
