3570k temps with h60

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I recently put together a rig in a Silverstone SG05 with an i5 3570k and a Corsair H60 2013 edition. Everything went smoothly, except I am wondering if my temperatures are a little on the high side. I am currently 5 minutes into prime95 and my hottest core is reaching 65C. My i5 is at stock settings, and I am a little hesitant to overclock it seeing how warm it is at stock settings. When I made my mid tower I had a Hyper 212 Evo on it and it just cracked 70C on prime at 4.5 ghz. I realize the H60 is not the best cooler and airflow is not exactly ideal in a case as small as the SG05, but do you think 65C might be a little high at stock clocks?

Thanks in advance

You have an Asus motherboard, correct? What kind of voltage are you using on your CPU? Manual, adaptive or offset voltage?

There you go, you answered yourself wink.gif

Set your voltage to "manual", it will set a real limit. Otherwise, Prime95 will put in more volts than your CPU needs, which explains why it's heating up so quickly.

This is the whole tricky part about overclocking.. You must manually set the voltage yourself, until you find something that's stable...

Try it out, let us know how it goes.
