I have a question, these cpu show up as both CPU, and core temps, I'm not used to this. What should I be watching out for? As in, what is a max safe core temp, and CPU temp? I've seen any where from 72 to 95c suggested. Also, like I said, are they talking about CPU or core? I've noticed the core temps get above the CPU temps often.

Keep an eye on core temps.

From what I've read "official" max temps are anywhere from 90C to 100C, but I'd say try not to get too far over 80C.

Check out this thread for everything you could ever want to know about the 4770K and also lots of posts from us Hero owners as well.

Thanks.

*My cores were way too hot. I reseated my H100i, using my normal cross method (tried dot at first), and it cut a good 10c off of load temps.

I'll tell you, this i7-4770k, now has me thinking about going full water.

anyone have any additional info on this specific board. any settings not generic to HW or already covered in the recommended ASUS ROG Maximus VI mobo settings that helped with stability?

Something sounds wrong with your heat sink contact to CPU, my 4770k idles at 34C and while gaming for hours hits 40-42C and that's because my video card(GTX770 Windofrce) get 50-52C hot air rising past it... My house temps are around 75F
post #1785 of 2766
Hey guys I am in trouble, please help me.
I had left my computer running overnight, mining.
In the morning I wake up and the PC is off.

It does not boot up.
The POST LED code display shows 00.

I have tried clearing the CMOS, tried Direct key.

Nothing works. The PC turns ON with only the CPU fans spinning, other fans off & the display shows nothing.

Please help.

I had used the dot method for the first time. When I removed the heatsink, I noticed the thermal paste wasn't spread out very well. I redid my paste, this time using my normal "X" method, and my temps are looking good now.

My main issue now is, this CPU seems to be a really poor OC'er. Right now, I'm set at multiplier 42 / 1.240V. I've had system crashes when running prime95 within the first 20 min at attempts using lower voltage. Right now, at that voltage my cpu has maxed at 72c, and core max 77c.

From what I've read, my CPU seems like a pretty poor oc'er. =/

*I left to room to get a cup of coffee, came back in and my temps hit 88c at the 20 min mark of prime95. Dang.

The H100i has a problem with the backplate and its standoffs making the pump not seat correctly on the CPU even if it feels firm. Although not sure if all units have this issue so you cant entirely deem it bad. You can test it by removing the pump and play with the backplate, if it moves alot then problem is most probably there. However, what you can do is add rubber washer to the backplate which will reduce the play of the backplate and will lead to better contact of the pump and the IHS.
I have the Maximus VI Hero and the H100i and adding rubber washer helped my temps by a margin. if you cant acquire rubber washers, use the unused metal washers that came with the h100i.
You can find many people talking about this issue and how they fixed it by googling "H100i Backplate". I will provide good links when I find them in my history.

Thanks, yea I noticed that. However, it seemed tight once I secured it. I checked the back plate and all.

I was kind of worried myself that even though it feels tight now, it is in fact not properly seated. I'll pick up some rubber washers and give it a go. I'll keep a eye on temps during normal usage, I was going to order some better thermal paste. It would be nice to add better paste, and the washers at the same time, assuming I'm not hitting high temps under normal usage. Will test out some games later, see what the temps do.

It really stinks that the h100i has these issues. You'd think corsair would address that in some way.

Hmm... Okay before we jump directly to the "H100i issue", I want you to check some stuff first. Did you change any bios setting related to Core Voltage since you got the Motherboard?

If not, then Vcore is set to Auto on the Hero and it is Adaptive by default. This setting will add 0.1 V (which is ALOT) when stressing with synthetic tests like Prime95, AIDA, OCCT and many more. Therefore the voltage will be very high if everything is left as it is. My stock settings gave me 1.280V on cores with Prime and resulted to very high temps as well. But I currently run 4.4Ghz with that same voltage but as manual. (will jump to that later on).

Download HWmonitor and locate VCORE then run prime for a bit and check the peak values for this parameter. If its higher than 1.25V then it is normal to hit 80 degrees on that voltage with Prime95.
post #1790 of 2766
Yea, I had my Vcore set to manual. It hit 88c at 1.240v, though, it had read as high as 1.268v under CPU-Z. The 1.240v was what I had it set at in bios.
