Intel 4670k temps

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I recently built my first gaming rig. Wanting to see if temps are normal, good or bad. I have tried dot, spread, vertical line with no change in results. I ended up settling with vertical line, because I didn't want to take it up and redo it for no change in temps.

System specs:
I5 4670k
corsair 200r
asrock z87 extreme 4
two 120mm 2000rpm fans, one in front and the other at the back
two corsair stock fans, one at top and the other in the side
Hyper evo 212 push configuration

I used aida 64 and prime to stress test. In prime 95 temps got to around 65-67c using small fft. and in aida 64 temps got to around 50-55c. My ambient temps are around 68-69f. Are these temps good or normal with my setup? Also would having different speed fans effect anything?

those temps are pretty good. On an i5760 I got decent results with a pwm 4000rpm delta fan facing an exhaust fan, ran 4.37GHZ for bf3. I used the dot method with cooler with as5.

This is all at stock speeds. I haven't overclocked it yet. Temps at full load are 10 degrees lower than the load temps I was seeing on stock heat sink. Maybe I need a better cooler. I don't know. It plays games easily enough, very good in that area. Last night it was 60 degrees outside and I opened my window to let the cool air in and my idle temps dropped to 19. Best temps I have seen since I got it.

I know haswell runs hot but I guess I was expecting it to be 50-60 or so in prime 95 due to its max load temp of 72 according to intel. I am assuming they meant with stock heat sink.

The max temperature of 72°C is the Tcase temperature, you wouldn't need to worry about that as long as you keep the core temperatures under 80°C for 24/7 use.

If you overclock yes,you need a better heatsink.if you dont,then no

Thanks for the replies. I do plan on overclocking later. Not to 4.5 or anything. I would be happy with 4.0 or 4.2. Just as long as its safe for my first overclock. I have been thinking on the h80i for the future, but I have seen others reach 4.0-4.5 on this cooler. Although I don't know if I could.

4.2 GHz will be very easily done with your CPU Cooler, unless you have a bad chip that requires a lot more CPU voltage than average. 4.5 as well if you can get voltages such as 1.25V stable for that. 4.7 if you can manage 1.32-1.35V or even lower with that stable. I wouldn't get a H80i if I was you, a high-end air cooler will thrash the H80i in performance, I used to have a Thermaltake Frio, did 4.7 GHz at 1.37v but not stable, running at like 78°C

You will have problems with any heatsink/clc wheb you overclock passed 4.4ghz due to the bad quality tim and the space between the tim and the IHS

I have noticed with turbo boost on when I stress test it goes up to 3.6 and vcore goes up to 1.172. Normally on stock it stays around 1.010 and below during stress test. I have seen other threads where people get a 4.0 oc on 1.162 and 1.172. Is this an indication of voltages going to be to much for the chip to overclock or is turbo boost adding too much voltage to the vcore that is really not needed?

Also, what kind of temp increases could I expect with a mild overclock to 4.0?

Depending on how far you want to push your OC.

I can vouch. I'm currently using an Evo with a 4670k at 4.2GHz. Max temps while gaming (BF4) on ultra never go over 70C. I stick around 30-35C idle.
