My temps are all over the place so I need to figure out if it's normal for a water cooling rig to have temps like this.
When I run the Intel XTU benchmark utility, my CPU temp reads out as 31,34,63,48,42,58,59,51,44,55,54,33. Is it normal for the temp readout to jump around like that?
In Asus realbench, during the stress test, my CPU temp is 62, CPU package temp is 80, core 1-6 is 64,61,75,60,54,56. The real score provided by the benchmark was 150248
Asus deluxe II mobo
Gskill 32gb 3200mhz ram
Ek X360 water cooling kit with an extra 240mm radiator
Nvidia Asus 1080 gpu with xspc water block
Does this all sound normal? Man do I wish I knew someone local that was into computers and overclocking because this is a huge learning curve.
