my i5 3570k idle time normal(not overclocked yet)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just built my new build with a i5 3570k ivy on a msi z77 gaming mobo. the awesomely cool bios this motherboard comes with tells me my cpu is sitting at 32-35C is that normal? i mean grant it. i accessed the bios through a software while on my desktop so its not technically complete idle but yeah.Should i go ahead with the overclock?

Install core temp (it's a program online, excellent for reading and monitoring your temps) in windows and see what it says, that's going to give you a much better idea of what your temperatures really are. Also idle temps mean absolutely nothing, what you'll want to do is run prime95 for 10 - 15 minutes and see what your load temperatures are.

Once you have those temps, post here what they are and we can help you from there thumb.gif

what's your cpu cooler? I've got the same idle temps @37 to 40c, my ambient temps is about ~30c and up (its hot in here). If you're using the stock cooler, run p95, i guess it will reach 80~90c for 15-20 minutes.

IBT or Intel Burn test is a very good max temp program faster than prime95 and yields higher temps on intel. run stock on it and see what temps at stock you get and don't pass 85C on IBT. 85C is my barrier for ivy.

then proceed to OC. what TIM btw?
