Do I really need a custom cooler? - Page 3

The stock fan is just insufficient in my case. There is a ton of stuff in a pretty tiny case to be sure. My room temp was 73F. An AIO h2o let me get up to 4.2ghz while still being sufficiently quiet, so I will probably just run those when I build rigs in this case.

The only reason I put it on is to actually see what it was like, since I haven't used an Intel heatsink in many years (they haven't changed much it seems). Even at stock clocks, a quality heatsink is worth the cash IMO.

The stock cooler is fine. Your case has poor airflow, 1 140mm intake and no exhaust. In your situation, the case is what is making your temps excessively high and cooler excessively noisy..not the stock cooler. Even the 82C that you said your CPU maxed out at is fine. Sure its a little hotter than you may prefer, but it is not in any dangerzone.

I agree. It's not the temps the bother me so much, its the noise. The stock cooler may be passable as far as temps go, but I still wouldn't use one.

The noise is subjective. If you have 10x1200rpm fans in your case, the stock cooler suddenly becomes very silent.

Finally, after building my rig with i5-4570 and stock Intel cooler.
I have max. temperature during playing Company of Heroes 2 - 62 degrees.
Im not planning to overclock it.
Will you buy custom cooler in my situation?

62c is definitely safe. If you are happy with it now why would you buy another cooler?

62C is a really good temp for the stock cooler. Now that I have an AIO h2o kit back in my ft03 mini, my temps have dropped 20C from the stock intel cooler to 63C. Much better temps and so much quieter.

Because, I don't know where is the beginning point for relatively high temperature for CPU...?
I would like to last my PC relatively long and know that high temperatures are not good for lifetime of components.
Also, I may to test some more demanding game like Crysis...

As long as your CPU core temperatures are below the Tcase specification it will last a long long time. The i5-4570 Tcase is 72.72c.

Tcase: Technically this refers to the temperature that you can measure using a thermocouple embedded in the centre of the heat spreader, but this is only done in the factory by Intel or by users willing to drill their heat spreaders open to insert a thermocouple. Therefore Intel provided a diode between and below the cores with a reading calibrated by the BIOS which can be used instead.

Tjunction: Synonymous with core temperatures and calculated based on the output from the DTS using the formula shown further down in this post.

Tjunction Max: This is the maximum temperature the cores can reach before the PROCHOT# signal is sent and thermal throttling is activated, although throttling typically occurs a degree or two below this.

It is generally considered that Tjunction (core temp) is about 10-15 degrees hotter than Tcase. so you are at least 20c below the safe limit.
