If my room gets to 75F. My CPU wont touch 58C at 4.2Ghz. I have a Zalman cooler as well.

But i keep the house in high 60's, close to 68F. Unless im drinking and smoking, then i open the windows, then house temp will rise to 75F. Then i will get close to 60C on my CPU if im running LinX.

Edit.

I just did a quick test.
Room temp is 73F. I have a portable thermometer sitting few feet away from PC.
Running Linx. CPU max average temp is 54C.

CPU 2500K @ 4.2Ghz at v1.2.
Zalman CNPS10X Performa. Fan speed is controlled by BIOS.

Everything looking ok? First time overclocking a cpu!

With better cooling the 2600K should go quite a bit higher. I've got mine running happily at 5Ghz with a Corsair H100 and the temps never seem to exceed 40C under full load (vcore spikes to 1.55V at times).

That's full of $hit, 16C ambiant temperature with a custom water loop just for my CPU and I get 55C at 5GHz with 1.4v!

Get out.

^ Agreed.

Well I too thought the temps were somewhat too low too, probably overlooked something. What should I use for temperature monitoring and recording? Right now I'm using the Asus Suite that came with the P8Z88-V mobo.

Don't use the ASUS software for temps it's not nearly as accurate. I use a simple program called RealTemp you can get over at http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/

Sorry for being rude, I thought you were trolling. I would expect something in the 70ish with a H100.

Real temp has accurate reading for my Z77 board. Try also coretemp it was the most accurate tool for my P55 board. Some like to use HWmonitor because you have temperature reading of all your system.

1.55v is very high for sandy. Some people recommend max 1.38v for daily usage. I personally wouldn't use more than 1.45v. Your chip will degrade very fast at 1.55v and loses performance over time very fast. You are even exceeding intel's max specification voltage for sandy being 1.53v...

Thanks for the replies, guys, I will try RealTemp and will look at voltage in more detail. My apologies for posting a comment without thoroughly checking my facts - I suppose I have given in to joy of easily reaching 5Ghz without having to tweak and finesse any settings. It's been a number of years since I've overclocked my CPU's even though I've had been indulging in the hobby from the days of the original Celeron 300A smile.gif

about 71* ambient. h100 push/pull. 4.5ghz@1.35v or so.
