Hyper 212 EVO Appropriate Temperatures?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

Just 30 minutes ago I successfully installed a Hyper 212 EVO.



Here are some results of temperatures from running Prime95 and CPU-Z

EDIT
OFFSET +8 C on CoreTemp, just because I feel it might be less than what BIOS shows as temps.

RealTemp shows as 55 C with no offset. Which should I trust?


i5-4570 Running OC'd to 3.6GHZ at 1.125V

Stock Cooler

Idle: 33-35C
Max Load with Prime 95: 82 C devil.gif


EVO

Idle: 35-36
Max Load with Prime: 65 C specool.gif

Idle temps are a little higher but load temps are significantly lower.
Do these numbers sound correct in terms of temperature differences? I've heard people OC'd to 4.2-4.5GHZ getting anywehere from 70-75 C under full load. If thats the case, then why does the EVO in my computer only keep my 3.6GHZ processor at 65 C?


Not complaining, just wondering how other's achieve this. I'd also like to hear your experiences with the EVO
Case: INWIN G7 Case


Thanks!

My idle temps with the EVO are about 25-40 degrees and I live in a cold climate (Tasmania). My load temps are about 66-76 degrees currently. Your temps look good thumb.gif.

1.125 seems like more volts than you should need for 3.6GHz. The 4670k on my gigabyte board loads all cores to 3.8GHz by default and it uses 1.08 to do that. 65c isn't that bad though, you can't expect too much from an evo.

Your ambient temperature is also very important to list. 65c could be awful or amazing depending on that.

Your temps are fine, I had the similar readings with my 3570K a few months ago before switching to HE01, I used the thermal paste that came with it and it took about a month to see idle temp improvement by at least 1-2C...Even though I re apply the TIM multiple times during fan dust cleanout, It'll end up sitting around low and mid 30s Celsius in idle depending on ambient room temps...

Normally my OC idle temps are mid 30s to 40 peak at 4.4ghz @1.230V with the Hyper212

Ambient temps 22 C

Voltage is regulated on "Auto" in BIOS, as I am a little worried to set voltage myself.

And the 4570 is not unlocked :'(

3.6GHZ is the highest it will let me go as thats the turboBoost speed, so I just set it to that.

What is the air temp going into cooler. That is the important temp, not the room / ambient temp. wink.gif

I'm guessing the 22c room ambient is cooler than the air going into cooler... especially when running Prime.

You might find this helpful. I post this basic but by no means complete tutorial often. It's a work in progress : Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
There is much more to cooling than good cases and good CPU / GPU coolers. Modern GPU's make more heat than CPU... and getting that heat out of the case can be a challenge.

Setting up the case to cool properly is the hardest and most time consuming part of a build... And the most neglected by most builders.

We need at least as much air volume flowing through the case as the total of CPU and GPU fans flow through their coolers. If we do not have as much air coming into and going out of case as CPU and GPU coolers are passing through and heating up than some of that heated cooler exhaust has to be re-circulated through the coolers. This means the cooler run hotter because the air going through them is hotter.

Cases, especially those with filters, usually benefit from fans with higher static pressure ratings than stock fans... "cooler" fans instead of "case" fans.
Intakes are typically more restricted than exhaust; air filter, more restrictive grill, HDD cage, etc.
I prefer more intake than exhaust. And don't confuse number of fans with amount of airflow... or airflow with airblow

airflow is flowing cool air from intake to component and flowing hot air from component out of case without the hot air mixing with the cool air.

airblow is lots of fans blowing air with some of hot air from components mixing with cool air making it warmer resulting in warm air not cooling components as well as the cool air will.

Putting fans in case as intake and/or exhaust is only the first step. These fans only move air in and out of case.

This does not mean heated air is not mixing with cool air.

Nor does it mean cool air is going to where it is needed.

Getting the air to flow inside of case properly is very important. We still need to manage where the air flows inside the case. We can do this several ways; deflectors, cooler intake fans, exhaust fans, removing vent grills, using fans with higher pressure/airflow, building ducts to or from CPU/GPU cooler, etc.

Using a remote temperature sensor to monitor what air temps are is the key to finding out where the cool air is flowing and knowing heated air is not mixing into it. By monitoring this we can than make changes to get airflow the way we want it.

I monitor the temps with a cheap indoor/outdoor wired remote or terrarium digital thermometer. Twist a piece of stiff insulated wire into the last 8" of sensor lead so you can bend it to position sensor where you want it... like 40mm in front of your GPU cooler/radiator intake.. to see what the air temp going into CPU / GPU cooler is compared to room temp. The closer it is to room temp the better.. Shouldn't be more 5c maximum, 2-3c is what I usually end up with after 30 minutes full load on both CPU and GPU. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
