i5-2500k + noctua nh d-14 temps ?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi !

I just completed my first complete build and it was also my first time applying thermal paste and installing a heat sink.

I just need some temperature comparisons to see if in fact my cooler and paste are relatively well installed.

Stress testing with prime 95, temps with Real Temp GT 360

Stock btw, Vcore 1.18v

At 100% load ( been about 30min of prime95 so far)

Ambient room T 17C



1-Min: 39, Max: 42
2-Min: 44, Max: 47
3-Min: 43, Max: 46
4-Min: 42, Max: 44


Do these look normal ?


Cheers !!

Maybe I should put my cpu outside, -30 celsius atm

Looks normal to me!

I have the 2500k and NH-D14 and I see similar temps. I overclocked mine to 4.5ghz however and with load my temps hit about 62c.

A few things to note, if you are using the fan voltage resistors that Noctua provides for those two fans, you might be seeing higher temps, but at the cost of lower noice. Prime95, or any stress test for that matter, will stress the CPU more than average even with max use, so your temps during usage will be a lot lower than that probably. Lastly, it will take a good day or more for the heat sink compound to set in. Once it does you can expect maybe a 1-2c lower depending on what you used.

Good deal though, I know you love that set up, because I am having a blast with it and don't regret my purchase!

Cool, Thanks !


I have a Fractal case with noise insulation so I didn't bother with the resistors for the Noctua. So far I love this setup.

Shouldnt your temps be lower? I have a much cheaper cooler, the CM V6 GT, and @ 4.5 Ghz under load I hit 54-55* max. Only when I OC to 4.7+ do I see temps over 60.

Guess I'm used to it, but outside temps last week were mostly around the -30 c range.

My setup at idle actually seems to cool down the room, haha.

Maybe I should try folding 24/7 and use my cpu as a space heater

IMO folding 480 > space heater

Your temps look fine. Maybe a tad high considering your ambient temp. Are you using the thermal paste that came with the D-14?

if in the future you dont like your temps due to overclocking, you can always upgrade the fans. when i owned a d14 i upgrade to 2 cm blademasters and saw like 5-6 drops on load temps.

yeah I'm using the Noctua paste, it was my first time applying any thermal paste so I may have done it wrong. I don't really feel like checking it out, until I see some real issues.

I disabled the fan control in the Bios and I think it means they're running 100% ?


edit: on the first install I put the heatsink on with the fans exhausting towards the front, so instead of remounting I switched the fans around. I don't think the heatsink is directional ?
