If it is simply clock speed, then it is okay smile.gif I was just wondering why, because many people get a K processor without even having an idea, what the K means smile.gif

i know what it stands for. but the base clock speed is higher too

Hi. I have had the cpu for a week now and it's awesome. everything loads so fast etc no problem. On thing that concerns me though are the temps. Playing Mad Max with everything set to max settings made one or 2 of my cpu cores go as high as 71C while the other cores about 67C or so. are these normal temps? Idling is no problem though, cpu stays under 30C at idle. Again, the cpu cooler is the megahalems rev B/C i dont know anymore and the thermal paste is some cheap one which i applied by spreading it with a tissue on the cpu surface, then pressed the cooler and tightened the screws(until they coldnt screw in anymore). i already ordered a syringe of noctua nt h1 http://www.ebay.de/itm/171407535500?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT which i will test this week. now i know there are more than one ways to apply thermal paste, but does it really matter? i am a bit worried about those cpu temps under load...

Without know exactly what components and layout are it's hard to say if it is cooler or just high case temps supplying hotter air to the cooler. You might find "Ways to Better Cooling" link in my sig of interest It has information on case airflow, how to monitor air temps going into CPU and GPU coolers, etc. Opening post is index, cllick on topics of interest to see them.

What is your case fan layout? With a R9 390 and 4790 making heat in there, it's lime having a space heater plugged in and running inside of the case. biggrin.gif

you know, the standard haf x layout. front and rear fan sucking air in, another one behind for exhaust and another one on top, the power fun labeled as PWR fan on the motherboard is hooked up to the back 120mm fan for exhausting and is the faster of all I think at ~1100 RPM while the chassis fans are all under 700RPM.
you didnt tell me though, are those temps too high? the gpu once peaked 71C in dota 2 but max 66C on Mad Max. should i go for another cpu cooler? i thought the megahalems was massive..
