How are my temps?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
So I have my i7 950 at 4025MHz 1.256V and my temps are 71 67 67 66.
The cooling is done by EK supreme hf and those temps seem a bit high to me
What do you think? Ambient is 20 and water temp is 27.

Very bad temps. Bad mount, pump not working properly or your rad plus fans are not good

They are not that bad, but something definitely is wrong

Yep thats what I thought. I use Coollaboratory Liquid ULTRA as TIM it is supposed to be good and I applied it just the amount they used it in

But I guess it could have gone wrong.

those temps are not bad at all, unlike what the first response says. I have a 950 running at 4200 MHz with a vcore of 1.41. I get the warmest core to 71 degrees at 27 degrees water temp.

That shouldnt be the problem. The amount of paste they applied is how you want it to be anyway, not too much yet everywhere. Must be something else

There is a huge difference between 4.0 1.25v and 4200 1.41v.. His warmest core should be around 60 tops

The way they applied the paste seems strange. Wouldn't they be creating micro bubbles which would trap heat?

Imo the credit card trick is the best.

Are all of your fans and pumps working properly?
What did you use to get the temp readings?

I used a multimeter to get the temp readings. 7 degree air to water delta isn't bad right? I'm not completely sure how much water the pump is moving, it seems to move fast but not sure how fast.

@Lune - oops, somehow overlooked his vcore. Yes for 27 degree water those are a bit high. Still, they are not terrible or dangerous to the cpu. It could be the mounting (micro bubbles, it could be that the layer of paste is too thick, or it could also be that the cpu block screws are not in far enough or too far, exerting either too much pressure or too little on the cpu.

Oooh - another thought - flushed the rad properly? IF your system is new, the fins in the cpu block could be starting to clog up with flux (black stuff, easily cleaned out) from your radiator.

7 degree air to water - it depends under which circumstances you measured this - has the pc been running furmark xtreme burn in and prime 95 for 20 minutes? In that case 7 degrees is very good. If you get 7 degrees in idle, that is not so ideal.

Yes I did flush it properly and wouldn't the clogs just raise the water temps and not just the cpu temp.

I took the temps after 20mins of prime95 the gpus were at low load
