I7-3770K with noctua dh-14 heat issue

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have recently purchased both a Noctua DH-14 cooler and a Intel I7 3770k (house inside my antec 1200) and I have some concerns about the stock temperature. On my first run at stock under load (prime test 95) the cores averaged out at about 50 degrees (this was using a spread method for the TIM), I thought this was a little high so I removed, cleaned and reseat the heat sink using dot and line methods respectively. I think the dot was about 1 degree better and the current set us about 43, 50, 50, 51 under load. Are them temperature unusual for this core and cooler, and if so what should I be doing to normalize my results. Also is it unusual for core 0 to be noticeably cooler then the other cores?

Its not unusual for one core (or two) to run hotter or cooler than the rest... nothing to worry about. Not sure what temps you were expecting but that looks about average. Room ambient temps will effect core temps as well as the overall case airflow.

Thanks for the awnser, it more peace of mind to be honest as I dont really know what to expect. If anyone else hase experience with the cooler with this CPU input would be greatly appriciated, otherwise I will just leave the config as it is.

I'm also seeing a big difference in temps with core 0 and the rest. I have a Venomous X with push-pull Aerocool Shark 120s, and I spread the AS5 evenly with a card. I'm currently running it at 4.3ghz with a +0.005v offset. Temps under prime95: 64, 70, 72, 69. I haven't tried reseating yet, should I try that and is a dot of TIM recommended over spreading it evenly? Thanks.
