H100 and 3930k abnormal idle temps?

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
I have a question guys, I currently just set up my rig, which is the thermeltake armor revo, with the asus rampage iv extreme.

I currently have the corsair h100. and the idle temps around 38~44 (Core #2 is at 26 C) IS this normal? I plan on overclocking but i see peopel getting stock temps of about 35 even on the package temp. My package temp is 42~44 C on idle. On full load it goes on all 6 cores it goes 3.5ghz at 66C. I plan on getting my CPU to 4.7ghz with FSB at 140 x 33 (I dont want to increase multiplier alot so i dont put alot of stress on the CPU and getting a little bit more speed benefits.) SO are these idle temps ok to overclock or should I re check the block? I used the pre-applies thermel paste.

like room temperatie? usually around 75 or 80 F. On days when its cool aroudn 70 usually my room is about 72

80°F is pretty hot for a room. Just say you are running 44°c, then you are 31°c over ambient. Which is pretty good but could be better for idle speeds. How do you have the h100 as, intake or exhaust? Do you just have the stock fans or push and pull? Thanks

It's normal, my 2nd and 3rd core is the coldest just because it is not lapped. I don't feel like lapping it because of the warrantee.

The h100 is on the top of my case intaking the outside air, And only 2 fans. well i must have been wrong. My room is usually 72-75 on normal days, and on really hot summer days its usually 80. Do you think its safe if i try the 4.7 OC?

Just try it and see and keep a eye on the cpu temperatures. Not knowing what cpu you have or anything else, so I'm just guessing. I wouldn't want my temperatures to go over 175°F - 180°F being max for prime95, IBT, or LinX. You could always add some better fans or do a push and pull. But if it doesn't over heat in any of the stress test then you are good to go. As nothing you go gaming or general pc usage will not load the cpu like those stress test will. Thanks

completely forget 3930k,right now its at stock making sure an oc will be ok. should I just increase the CPU vcore to 1.4 and thats it? What should I disable to make it more stable?

I'm running 4.6Ghz with a H100, with just the stock fans. Although my case may have an influence to the temps....

I'm not using a push pull config yet so my temps aren't that fantastic yet. Just the 2 corsair fans....but i must add that my house gets rather warm, on average it's 25c-27c ambient.

40c
36c
33c
35c
43c
31c

As you can see above, my temps are very varied across cores. Prime can make Core 1 and 5 hit 70c max, but the rest sit comfortably @ 63-65c.
