4770k + Noctua NH-D14 temps - Page 4

post #31 of 36
I got Ram and a Case that fit fine for the Noctua. But when I was first placing the brackets I realized I was placing the Fans Vertically which I didnt want to, So I tried to re-arrange the Mounts to be able to point the Fans Horizontally, and thats when I figured out that the bracket wouldnt fit the other way.

Anyways I got a Corsair H100i, and I'm ok with that.

Thread Starter 
That's really weird, because the Noctua compatibility list for this cooler has been updated to say it officially supports Z87 Sabertooth. Nothing wrong with a H100i though..

Also, in case anyone was wondering, I did try some fan setups and I was able to shave off maybe 3-4 degrees. It still gets nice and toasty, high eighties on an Aida64 FPU only test. Regular Aida64 Stability (with all boxes checked) doesn't breach 73-74 though and mostly stays under 70 (Around 63-67ish). Prime Blend doesn't go past 70 or so and IBT doesn't go past 82-83ish on extreme settings.

Based on all the results I've seen in other threads, this seems to be pretty normal. It should be noted I'm not going beyond 60 in real world tests (a few hours of BF3, Metro 2033, etc.)

I'm also using Aida64 3.00 which apparently adds full Haswell support, so I'm guessing the full FPU test is really toturing the crap out of the processor as much as it can, which could explain why I'm not seeing those temps anywhere else. Either way, I'm not really worrying about it anymore, as I'm never going to hit those super high temps in regular usage.

It may be the airflow in your case more than anything. I have a 4770k clocked at 4.4 GHz with 1.245V that hits low to mid 70s under load with a Noctua NH-D14. My case is the HAF 932 Advanced.

Yeah, I wouldn't worry either. You'll never see those temps in games or other applications. I would fire up PlanetSide2 or GTA IV and see what temps you get as those are pretty CPU intensive games. In fact, I prefer running those over using P95 or any other program.

Also, the R4 was designed more for silence rather than airflow (you already know that), so if you still have the stock FD fans try putting two in the front as intake and one in the rear as exhaust.

When I had the FD fans, they barely moved any air. With the filter installed, I honestly felt nothing on the other side. I'd recommend getting some better quality fans if I were you.

Here's an entire thread dedicated to fan recommendations:

Seeing as you have a NH-D14, I get the impression you don't mind their colors, so id recommend some NF-A14 FLX PWM fans when they come out soon. Or just buy the non PWM version like I did.

Sorry to bump this old thread, but do you monitor your vcore during load? and what kind of LLC are you using?

I have a 4770 that was running hot. I used the vise and hammer method to remove the IHS and scraped off the glue and applied artic silver. Now my temps are in the 55-60° range with a maximum of under 70°… and that under load from aida64.

I'm very happy with that.
