Higher CPU temperatures after Windows re-install

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello Overclocker.net members. I've asked this on LinusTechTips but to no avail. After I re-installed Windows, my temperatures increased. My cooler is the Kraken x60. Now, I have not replaced any hardware except for my Noctua fans on the rad. Before, I had Corsair AF fans mounted on the rad. With those fans and my last Windows re-installation, my temperatures sat at about 53ish Celsius while running BOINC. With the same settings and my new fans and new Windows installation, my CPU's sitting at 75 degrees Celsius. CPU is a 3570K and my settings were as follows:

CPU clock: 4.4GHz
Voltage: 1.248
LLC: Ultra High

Why are my temps higher than before? Also, the readings are correct as my rad is giving off massive amounts of heat.

Also, my rad is a little dusty, but the dust is no worse than before the fan change and Windows re-install.

Which Noctua Fans? Looking at photos of the Rad it look like it's at least 20fpi. If you've fitted low speed, low static pressure fans it will have a marked effect on temps although 22ºC seems a lot. Also were the ambient temperature the same when you took the CPU temperature readings?

Yes. The ambient temperatures were the same. The fans I bought were Noctua NF-A14s. But the temperatures(if I remember correctly) were the same before I reinstalled Windows. I did change some settings in the BIOS to lower temperatures, but they're still at 60C. However, it's not the same settings. Now(because of thermal control) my 3570K is at 4.2GHz with 1.192 volts applied. But temperatures are still higher than before.
