4770k + Noctua NH-D14 temps

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I just finished my new build for Haswell. Right now, I have the processor clocked @ 4.2ghz with a 1.2v VCORE. The system details are as below:

Asus Sabertooth Z87
Fractal Design R4 Case w/ the two stock fans that come with it (Silent Series 120mm I think)
Noctua DH-D14 cooler with the supplied Noctua thermal paste applied

I'm wondering if the temps I'm seeing are "normal". If I run a prime95, I hit around 87-88c tops (after a few hours), with an ambient of around 24c. If I just game with a CPU intense game, or something like that, I get around 60-62ish tops. If I run Aida64, after 5 minutes or so, I'm seeing temps max out around 92.

I know Haswell runs hot, I'm just wondering what other people are getting around similiar volts. I've read around a bit, but it seems right now there is a lot of "fluff talk" rather than actual temps. Please correct me if there is a thread that I'm missing with data!

By the way, I've reapplied the paste three times now, each time cleaning the HSF assembly and processor with 99% Isopropyl. It doesn't make any difference. I do tech stuff for a living, so I'm not all that clueless about building machines. tongue.gif I'm humble enough to at least reapply a few times to make sure!

Would more fans in this case help? This case has some acoustic padding that I think may be creating higher temps. I've also noticed it takes a bit longer for my GTX 670 to hit it's idle temp of 30c, compared to my Corsair 500R case.

Keep in mind, I'm not looking for a miracle here in terms of overclocking and would be fine with a mild OC. I've already tried pushing it past 4.2ghz and it seems like I have a "meh" chip for pushing decent clocks, but I don't even care about that really. This is just a bit of fun for me and I know for my main use (gaming), I'm not gonna see a massive improvement anyways in real world performance.

Any suggestions/advice/insight appreciated!

Starting to feel this might actually be normal for the NH-D14. Looking on another source of forums, I'm seeing people with similar setups getting roughly the same with intensive benches..

The main reason I asked this question is some of the first posts I found with the NH-D14 said they were only getting around mid 70's-low 80's with the same cooler. However, they didn't really say what methodology they were using software wise...

Yeah I've read a few stories now with the same reports of high temps and low overclocks. Sounds like its just how it is.

Yeah that kinda sucks. I'm actually thinking of getting pretty similiar setup, deciding between NH-D14 and h100i (dont really like those big air coolers) and not sure if sabertooth or maximus hero. But seeing these temps i think i will eventually try to delid.

Seems like delidding with vise + hammer might be the only way to reach 4.7 w/o high temps. That or wait for Intel to change their IHS TIM...which probably won't happen rolleyes.gif

Yeah, I can see how this would be disappointing for a major enthusiast.. or someone like me coming from a 2500k@ 4.5ghz that wouldn't break ~75ish under load.

However, the IPC gains are quite nice.. I have noticed a difference in CPU intense games like Planetside 2 running @ 4.2ghz.

That said, delidding is not for me... at least until the processor got long in the tooth for my purposes. I'm sure it will be fine for gaming for quite awhile.. even if I left it at stock.

I think I will leave it at these settings, running a prime stable on it now. I will never hit these temperatures in reality, anyway.

Good luck to those who do delid!

In actual performance, your 4.2ghz 4770k is quite a bit better than your 4.5 2500k though.

Yep my Noctua NH-U12P SE2 hits 90 on 1.14v/4.1Ghz @ 30ish ambients

Oh yeah, definitely. I can see it in CPU intense games as well.. getting smoother performance and higher frames.

My chip is definitely a bit meh OC wise, but I'm fine with 4.2ghz for gaming and I'm not even gonna bother pushing it further. I don't go past mid 50's or so just doing regular gaming, so I'm fine with those thermals as well. It's just the latest Aida64 with FPU only checked that pushes it to the extreme border of its Tj Max.

Nice to see reports of the cpu doing well in games, Planetside on my current setup does drag every so often.
Have a good think about airflow through the case too, I found on my setup that a rear case fan had little effect, when using a big cooler.
It may be different with my Haswell and I will be posting the build when I do it next Tuesday 11th June.

Is there anything blocking air coming in from the front?, are there any vents in the bottom allowing you to pull cold air in from underneath?
Currently using 2 fans to diagonally force air to my GPU as it radiates heat like there is no tomorrow, and that definitely helped the overall temperature inside the case.

Glad you are enjoying your new kit, sounds like you're like me, a gamer and tinkerer smile.gif
