High temps ?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been getting 40-55c on my 965 BE (overclocked to 3.7ghz). I plan to overclok it to 4.0ghz . I'm using a hyper 212+ and a lancool k60. I'm thinking of changing the cpu cooler to a Thermaltake Frio and the Top and back fans of the case to the Sythe Gentle typhoons which i've seen great reviews of.


Thanks sooo much

Those temps are okay if 55c is your absolute maximum, but I wouldn't overclock anymore than you already have until you find a better cooler. For right now, you should be fine. TJMax was around 65C if I remember correctly.

What thermal paste you using? (Don't tell me you're not using any..)

Tried a reseat?

Don't fancy putting it under water then?

I suggest you to use Artic Silver 5 despite the fact it is expensive. However, the money you invest on really benefit the performance you will get.

The temperature from what I saw is average. I recommend you to add additional fan 120mm for Hyper 212+ so that it will have push and pull configuration. You may wish to add extra fan just for the case to give better airflow.

This will not only decrease your temperature but will give you more further headroom to overclock slightly without breaking your bank.
