Are my 3930k + H100 temps alright?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've been running a rig with the Intel i7 3930k cpu running at the stock settings, with an H100 to cool it. It seems to idle around 30-33c, although itll spike in either direction now and then. I was considering getting an actual custom waterloop, but have no idea what different temperatures to expect. Also, I briefly ran Prim95 and seemed to be around 50-55c on the cores when at 100% full load.

I used to dabble for a bit in OCing last year, but got cold feet since I am overwhelmed with how technical this thing is and temps + voltage worries me. I just feel like the temps SHOULD be lower.. tightening the screws doesn't do much. All the cores except for 1 seem to idle around 27-29c, the 1st core is always about 30-31c

Hope someone can alleviate my worries lol..

Thats around the same temps that mine is running at.

50-55C at full load is really good. 60-65 is normal. Running up to 75C is fine. I would be worried if you hit 80C or above. Idling around 27-31C is normal. Nothing to worry about.

That's about what you should expect... I tend to hover around 23-31 over the cores on idle. Going with a full blown loop doesn't really benefit you much until you get into higher overclocks or adding additional components.

Why is it I read some people achieve 20-25c on idle? I am envious lol.

I would like to see a proof of that. Opening doors and windows on a cold winter day do not count.

I idle around 39-41c and 65c under load @4.5ghz with my custom setup, fans off biggrin.gif

I just hate how its always my core 1 at around 31-34c while the others are around 28-30c. Not sure what else I can do to change that.
