Quick Question regarding temps for the i7 4770k - Page 2

post #11 of 15
If your temps are that high, you really need to check the mount and positioning of the water cooler. It shouldn't be that high.

Thank you everyone for your feedback, it is appreciated.

So I opened my computer tonight and did the following:

-Added some rubber shims to between the motherboard and backplate of the h100i
-Removed and reapplied thermal paste
-Reaseated the heat sink and tightened fairly tight with a screwdriver

I did a very quick flight in FSX and my max temp was 63C - I know that's not a huge drop, but as long as those kind of temps (i.e. anything under 70C?) will not shorten the life of my CPU or damage any components, I'm going to be happy with it. I'm not looking for an OC past 4.2 GHz and am happy just to fly along in my sim. I truly do appreciate the support and (hopefully) being able to get my temps down a few degrees.

Quick update - I did a second flight in FSX and the temps got up to a max of 71C. I'm wondering if this may be because the thermal paste was only put in 20 mins prior and I hadn't run any stress tests yet?

Either way, as long as I'm still within safe temp ranges, I'm not going to worry about it too much. I know the temps could and should be lower, but if someone could just give me an idea of what temps I should start to worry about the life of my CPU and components, I would appreciate that. I think I've spent more time worrying and tinkering with the PC than actually getting usefulness out of it. But I do sincerely appreciate everyone's help here.

I ran I made one change to my OC from a suggestion I got in an older thread I started a year ago and changed my CPU vCore voltage to override mode (instead of adaptive mode) at 1.150. Now when i ran Flight Simulator X my temps hit a high of 59C in a quick flight. I just want to confirm leaving my CPU in vCore override mode @ 1.150 is safe? My numbers OC currently look like this:

CPU All Core Ratio 42
CPU Cache Ratio 39
Vcore override voltage 1.150
Vcore voltage additional offset Auto
CPU Cache Override Voltage Auto
CPU Cache Voltage Offset Auto
System Agent Offset Auto
Fixed Voltage 1.900
CPU Input Offset Auto


Again, I truly appreciate the help. As long as my temp ranges are safe for the life of the CPU, I'm happy where I'm at right now.

Voltage wise, you seem ok. I run 4.2GHz @ 1.14 on my 4770k, could run a little lower, but it's incredibly stable. My max temps in Prime95 (which I don't use for stability, just an example) are ~52c.

With IntelBurnTest, which I use for stability, my max temps are 70c. There are no practical applications that will EVER drive my CPU as hard as this. I haven't played PC games in a while but I'd imagine my CPU stays below 45c.

I have a little Antec 620 w/ AP15 push-pull.

I would look into your cooling more, your temps are safe, but can and should be lower.
