3770k temps hit mid-80's with stock cooler today?!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I had to remove my h80i because of some out-of-the-ordinary idle temps and even scary load temps; the consensuses seems to be that the pump may of failed (by the way, Corsair still hasn't responded to be in 4 days) .

Thankfully I saved the stock cooler and threw it on while my AIO is out of commission. Temps were improved, I was happy. Today. I happened to pull up HW monitor and noticed the temps were jumping around in the 80s with nothing but chrome, spotify, and the diablo 3 install client running. Naturally I panicked and shut it down to check the BIOS, thinking maybe the fan controller settings were off since the h80i used software to adjust fan speed, but it was set to max. When I booted back into the OS, my temps were normal (~35c). Here I am maybe 10-15 minutes later and they've crept as high as 68c, but are now back to ~40-45c. I'm gonna play some BF3 and see how high the temps get and depending on how it looks, I may try to reapply my thermal paste despite my confidence in how it was set.

My fear now is that there's possibly a problem with the chip?

In 4 days? Do you mean that you e-mailed them on Friday, August 30th, or even Saturday August 31st? I mean, don't forget that Monday was a holiday.

It could be something that you can ignore - it might have been some kind of glitch. Although, I would definitely keep something open 24/7 like Real Temp to keep an eye on temps.
