Hello all...i finally got all my parts and finished my build tonight after having to run around looking for last minute things to finish my build
but im here to ask a question about idle temps
as you can see my sig rig is an i5-2500k stock clocks, using an H60 and on a very fresh build only 4ish hours old...my idle temps hang around 38c just browsing the net or browsing through general areas of the computer...like right now im syncing my dropbox so its using a load of about 13% on avg and core#0 will sit fluctuating between 36-38c while the rest of the cores will go from as low as 27c all the way to 30c...i know the first main core does most of the work so i understand the temp difference
now i ran a 12 minute blend on prime95 and i saw a peak temp of 58c and that was only for about a second and a half and never hit 58c again
are these temps average for a new build or should i be seeing some better #'s?
i know ive seen a fair number of people with air coolers and other H50's or H70's running 28-35c on idle load on here and some other sites
ill be adding a picture...but ill give ya some more info...the H60 is running 2 noctua 120mm fans in a push/pull system exhausting out the back...it also has a front intake and top exhaust fan
sorry bout the horrible picture...but its 4am and i only have my cell to take a picture with
