i7 2600k 80 degrees temp @4ghz !! any help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hi

i am new to overclocking and the reason for overclocking is because i think that my i7 2600k bottlneck my rx480

i overclock my cpu to 4 ghz with 1.25v and i turned off c1e , eist , c3,c6 , thermal monitor ( actually i did evrey thing and its still high temp )

my rig sepc is :

i7 2600k
h60 cooler (note that the thermal paste did not changed since 2011)
p67a-ud4-b3

So maybe thermal paste dried?

I had similar situation with my cpu and Noctua thermal paste, and not even one year passed, from one day temperatures becomed notably higher. I kad to remove cooler, clean everything and apply paste again. I do not know is it normal for less than one year to happen?

But if you are using since 2011, you should re-apply thermal paste to check is that problem.

7 years is quite a long time to go without a re-paste. I'm with the above poster... a paste re-apply is the easiest first step. I assume the h60 is from 2011 too? If yes, it is possible the pump is dying (they are notorious for going bad)... but first thing to check would definitely be the paste.

Is that temp during normal gaming or stress test? I would change that chalk aka TIM.... wink.gif

P.S. You don't have to turn those settings off. You could've kept them on.

i will change the thermal paste as soon as possible thank you very much for your time .

My CPU can get up 83C during stress testing but never goes over 65C during gaming. Honestly, download HWinfo64 and run it in the background and game. You can monitor your temps with that program. I highly doubt your temps will get that in non stress-test environments, unless your CLC is gone (I'd still change that paste).

this is the results after applying the paste at 4ghz , i think that the cooler is outdated

What are your gaming temps? 75 doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility when stress testing an overclocked system... even if it is only at 1.25v
