Please help me! 5960X Temps

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Cooler: EK Predator 360 w/ Grizzly Kryonaut Grease
CPU: 5960X
Clock: Stock XMP (3.5Ghz)
Ambient: 19c
Rad Fan RPM: 1850
My Temps: 82-87

What should my temperatures be using Prime95/OCCT? Please chime in if you can as mine seem very high and the store i purchased the CPU from is being very difficult with me. I think I've remounted this thing like 8 times trying to improve temps.

I don't have any experience with those parts, but it might be helpful if you can add what your ambient temps are and what rpm your running the fans at.

Yes. This is the second cooler I've had in this. I was hitting 90c with a h110i gtx so upgraded incase it was just a dodgy cooler. I have a feeling that I've just gotten an incredibly bad chip

1 you shouldn't be using prime 95...

Try using real bench or adia64.... temps should be in the 50s to 60s at stock.

I keep my temps in the 70s... but thats at 4.5ghz... that chip shouldn't be producing much heat at stock.

Thanks mate, looking to get some more people's results/opinions as I'm collecting it to show the store. I have basically no room to overclock at all with these temps
