What's too hot for 2600K?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
For load temps? My load temps are almost hitting 70C and I'm a bit worried. I might have to re-apply the thermal paste though since Core 0 and Core 3 are like 10C different during a full load. I'm currently using a Corsair H70.

I know I am.


I hope that helps.


Just remember lower is always better, llowwweerrrr.

Damn you're 5GHz+ though, I'm only 4.6GHz.

Yeah but it really don't make a difference with SB, I just feel better about 1.5v when my temps are in the 40C at max.

Others are doing 5Ghz @ 90C loads, the chips are brutal.

Make sure you have a bios with PPL overvoltage, and you enable it, it will help you boost your multiplier up.
