i5 4670k Temps

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone!

Soooo yeah, I've just finished my 1st self built PC, but I'm not sure if I've done something wrong with the CPU cooler.
When idle, I get temps around 44-46 degrees celsius, and when running a stress test (100% cpu usage) the temps reach about 72 degrees celsius.

Here's my setup:
Case: Cooler Master USP100

CPU: Intel 4670k with the intel turbo boost it runs at 3,8ghz

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO with the standard fan and a be quiet shadow wings fan (92mm)

Motherboard: MSI Z87-G45 Gaming

Intake fans: 120mm fan on the front (the one that came with the case) and a corsair SP120 PWM fan on the side

Exhaust fans: Corsair SP 120 PWM fan on the back and my PSU 140mm fan

GPU: Palit GTX760


Yesterday I also decided to try out the MSI OC Genie and play crysis 3, which resulted in a intel watchdog shutdown.

So, are these temps normal with this setup, and will my cpu survive at those temps?


By the way, I'm not sure if this is posted in the right section, I'm a noob here.

your CPU will definitely be fine in those temps but they do seem oddly high for an after market cooler.
how much thermal paste did you apply?

Thanks for the reply, I spread the thermal paste over the cpu surface so that all of it was covered, I didn't apply a huge amount tho, I guess just a bit more than the regular "pea size".
I díd however use the thermal paste that came with the cooler, was this a bad idea?

using the thermal paste that came with the cooler is fine.

If i remember correctly thermal paste is about 100x less heat conductive than the metal plates it touches. The reason for thermal past to exist is really only to eliminate the gaps of air between the heatsink and the cpu. 'a bit bigger than a standard pea' doesnt sound like too much to me but keep in mind the reason for thermal paste and check and possibly re-apply it accordingly.

Also check that you have secured the heatsink to the motherboard in the correct manner, as that may also be an issue.
