i5 3570k getting too hot?(at stock)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys smile.gif . I have a question about my cpu. Now that it's summer and it's hotter than rest of the year i noticed that my cpu reached insane temps for me,i ran prime95 and it hit 85c on blend test.(stock clocks)

I had this cpu for 1 year and it worked in lower temps with 4.0GHz on it before but now on stock it is worse.
What could be the problem or is it normal for that cpu? I reach around 84 when gaming(Black ops 2,BF3).

And also what is probably making the temp rise is my new 7950 dual-x right? Any solutions you guys could give me? (Can't really afford a cpu cooler right now)
And also is it reducing the life of the cpu?

What cooler & voltage ?


85c under prime95 with the stock cooler at 1.2-ish volts sound about right.

Ivy and Haswell gets very hot unless they are delidded. Don't worry about the temps hitting 85c on what I assume is the stock cooler. We're long past the time when cpu's could fatally overheat. IIRCC, Intel LGA starts to throttle at about 100-105c, preventing them from gettkng hotter.

Yup we're talking about stock cooler in summer with 7950 tongue.gif. So i shouldn't be worried even if it hits 84 under gaming conditions?

One last question guys..and if someone can please answer. I decreased the voltages to about 0.950. Tried prime95 and it was maxing at about 75-76c. Is it okay to do this thing like decreasing the voltages to that point? Would it work?(i will maybe take it down to 0.940)
