I7 6700K temperatures - Page 4

post #31 of 43
Thread Starter 
Thanks for the input, I will send a message to the retailer today and see if they can replace my cooler with a different one. Which one would be best ?
1. NH-U9DX i4
2. NH-U12S
3. NH-U14S
4. Should i straight up go for the NH-D14 dual fan ? I guess I won't be able to remove ram stick without removing the fan, but that's ok as long as it's tall enough to clear the ram heatsink. It is also a bit more expensive. Also MX-4 or NT-H1 thermal if I end up with a noctua ?

Or are there other options in this price range other than the noctua ?

Specs again:
Kingston HyperX Black Fury 16GB
Corsair Carbide 400C,
Asus Z170-A

Frankly, regardless of which air cooler you use, unless you change the OEM TIM between the IHS and die, you are not going to see the best temperatures.

But, here is a link to the top-rated coolers: http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm

Valid for most of the cpu's from skylake, or just my particular case ?
post #34 of 43
I believe the consensus is that Skylake has poor OEM TIM on the die.

Most see from 10° to 20° C temperature improvement when de-lidding and replacing with liquid metal type TIM.

RealBench


Cinebench was also <65. Are these temps good like this ?

LE: Agreed about manual values, just that the auto option was by default selected. Switched as soon as I found out about the voltage increase.

LE2: Also FireStrike temps are max 60 (59 actually)

What are your voltages and frequencies here ?
Honestly, I don't see any "Worrying temperatures"....

I should just reapply thermal paste with a little pea of Grizzly kryonaut in the middle of the TIM. A good cleaning of the cooler and CPU is necessary before.

Monitor also CPU Package temperature with HWinfo for example.
It shouldn't exceed 80°C during stress test at your referred room temperature.
You have to keep an eye on it, additionnally to cores temps
It shouldn't exceed 80°C during stress test at your referred average yearly room temperature.

A reminder

best temps i have had is a line and the then carefully spread with stiff plastic card - I do not like to see my whole chip covered thickly but more sort of transparent - your filling indentations that the eye cannot see, the best heat trasfer is metal to metal, not metal, paste , metal.

Paste wise = Noctua's

Thread Starter 
@GRABibus I am running at stock frequency with adaptive voltage (1.2ish max). I always clean the old paste off before reapplying. 65 is kinda the golden max temp I get in different stress tests and benchmarks. I tried running IBT once, set to maximum (I have 16GB ram) for 3 runs but never went through with it for more than a couple of minutes. It reaches around 71 in IBT with those settings.
@ladcrooks yes I remember about the line method you suggested, thanks.

LE: Rechecked in IBT, voltage goes up to 1.26, so gotta limit it from bios then, guess t hat's why it reaches 72C.

Gotta do some more researching. Set manual 1.2 in BIOS, VCore in CPU-Z is 1.2, VID in HWMonitor reaches 1.4 even. Am I missing something ?

This is just...different voltages in different apps, different temp in AI Suite, gonna go to bed for now.

LE2: Fresh start in the morning. I'm at work now, hopefully until I get home someone can help me explain something. Currently, I am only tweaking the values from the cpu/cache voltage - testing with different manual/adaptive settings. What should I use to monitor the voltage and what should I look at VCore or VID ? From what I understand VID is what the CPU wants to receive, VCore actual voltage ? I found it very odd that VID was running all around even when setting voltage to manual 1.2.

i really really really highly suggest you do some overclocking and see where that takes you. being too obsessed with stock temps is as bad as obsessed with idle temps. yeah you need a base to start but you may just have a chip that responds well to voltage.

i believe you mentioned high ambient temps so take that into account and see what the delta is; that will be more telling of your cooling solution than a final temp reading after running IBT.

there is other variables to consider such as your case's airflow; adding another intake in front and/or and exhaust on top may be a route to consider. pretty sure that at times when the graphics card pumping out some heat doesn't help either . . . so there are other things on the table.

Well guys, I replaced my cooler today with a Noctua D14 and it brought my temps back to 50 max (so far) while playing overwatch and 57 max on realbench (from 64-65). Now I can do some overclocking with some peace of mind. I shat myself a bit when posting, the display wouldn't turn on and noticed the mem led turned on. So i reinstalled the ram stick (needed to remove it in order to connect 2nd cooler fan to the cpu_opt port) and it went ok. Hope everything is alright. Also in asus ai suite I notice that one cpu fan is a bit faster than the other(the center 140mm one IIRC), is it ok ? I read that asus mirror the speed of the cpu_header to the cpu_opt. Around 100-150 RPM diff between them. Should I switch them so I have the front one blowing harder?
