4670k 90c Prime95

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've finally got my 4670k past 4.5Ghz and it seems stable at 4.6 but temps are creeping on the Tj Max should I be worried? (I honestly don't care if I lower my lifespan from 10 to 5 years) I know people running the stock cooler are also getting close to where I am...

Welcome to OCN.

I would not run it that hot. Sounds like your airflow could use some improvement but we need to know what your system is to be of much help.

Case - Nanoxia Deep Silence 4 Mobo- Asrock z87m extreme 4 cpu- 4670k Cpu Cooler - Thermaltake Nic C4. I'm using positive airflow from back to front because my cpu cooler is push and pull toward the front of the case.

Also ram is 20Gb 3x4 + 1x8 I know this is not advised but it works perfect for me.

Any component that is working is generating heat. CPU and GPU generate the most. Check out second link in my sig to get a general Idea of how air cooling works.

My sig rig is similar case to yours and my temps are never more than 50c with all cores 95-100%.. fans run maximum of 950-1050rpm and idle 700rpm

I just realized how stupid my airflow is.. I'm going to fix once I get out of school thanks.

Aside from temp is 4.6 good for a 4670k on air?

No problem. If you have any questions just ask. thumb.gif

Someone who used newer CPUs than I needs to answer that question. biggrin.gif

Got home and reseated my cooler, put the Nanoxia fans on the cooler and put the high pressure thermaltakes as exhaust running about 20c cooler!!! Thanks so much!!!!!
