Are these temps acceptable for 4670k + Hyper 212 Evo? - Page 2

Don't worry about idle temps, worry about load temps.

yah that's too much. you want maybe half of a BB worth of paste. when it comes to TIM, less is often better. as long as you can get it to spared to the edge you don't need too much to do that.

What kind of load temps should I be getting using prime95 maximum heat settings at stock?

that depends on what your ambient temp is biggrin.gif

Does everything look ok? This is really starting to bug me.The temperature in the house is 75f so the ambient temp should be around 24c. I repasted with the stock cooler master thermal paste that came with the 212 Evo, but the temps still rose to ~72c then jumped to ~83c.. but I left it on a little longer and now they've fallen to around 60-65c. It seems to vary wildly, at one point the temps were flashing between 65c and 75c so I'm starting to wonder if its the software. In the screenshot above the core temps are around 69c, but if you look at the IntelCoreSeries gadget at the side, it's reporting temps in the 80's. The cpu voltage is at 1.260, is that the correct stock voltage? Also, should I be looking at the core temps or package temp? Thanks for the help guys.
