Yeah it looks like Speed Step is disabled in the BIOS. Not a big deal...it just means your CPU is running full speed all the time. With Speed Step turned on, the CPU will down clock to 1600 MHz and drop the voltage as well. That's why in my case (for example) my idle temps are quite low.

Basically, your CPU cooler is working fine...nothing to worry about there. thumb.gif

so i could change this in the bios i i wanted to see lower idle temps? not really neccesary though right?

You'll want to set up the voltage as offset.

Yup for sure...it depends on the motherboard you have but the option will be in there somewhere. It's not necessarily needed...it's up to the user. smile.gif

so i got the h100i a few weeks ago and i gotta say it hasnt been maybe as effective as i thought. these are my idle temps at 4.0ghz [the max of 57-59 was just from a quick game of bf4]



reason why this threw me off beccause i found this

... And some info from the temp guide:


4th Generation 22 Nanometer: 4690K (TDP 88W / Idle 2W)

Standard Ambient = 22C
Tcase (CPU temp) = 72C
CPU / Core offset + 5C
Tjunction (Core temp) = 77C
Tj Max (Throttle temp) = 100C

Mid 70's are safe. At Standard Ambient 22C, here's the typical operating range:

80C Hot
70C Warm (Heavy Load)
60C Norm
50C Norm (Medium Load)
40C Norm
30C Cool (Idle)


also before anyone asks, yes my cooler is seated properly, thermal paste is all right too

anyone know where i can find this option on a msi z97 gaming 3 mobo?

It should be in the CPU section of the BIOS.

You want to change the C-states to enabled, here is a link for a great thread your chip and OCing.
