is 50-66 degrees c on a oc i7 3770k okay?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I decided to do water cooling on my first build ever, but my temps compared to some people are fairly high. with a 4.45ghz overclock on my i7 3770k with a msi 7970 tfIII oc'd to 1200 mhz in the loop i seem to get a 50-67 degree temps under load and around 35 degree idle temps. but my gpu never goes over 43 degrees.

My current loop consists of a xspc 360 45 mm rad in push pull, a xspc raystorm cpu block, ek nickel 7970 block, and an xspc rad pump combo. So for what I have are these temps alright?

what is your vcore?
Temps seams fine to me!
Did you stress test it? or what do you mean by "full load" ? smile.gif
Have you delided the CPU? you can loose 10-20 degrees by doing this smile.gif
My 4670K runs 4.0GHz 1.2v with 60-65 stress test 360mm rad push only setup

The CPU should be fine untill it hits the late 80-95 but I wouldnt recommend going over 80, I personally tend to keep under 70 degees for 24/7 use.

Vcore is 1.3, with prime running it hits 73 degrees after 5 hours.. but by underload I mean more demending games and programs

I also cleaned out my loop this summer and noticed my temps were a bit higher than before cleaning it out. So maybe I could just do a re pasting and such.

that is perfectly normal with your setup smile.gif and safe to use 24/7
If you want to get higher OC or cooler temps, than you could check out delidding smile.gif
How much hotter did the system run after cleaning it?

It went from about a 28 degree idle and a 45 underload to what it is now.
