2600k 70C @ 4.0 OC on SSF case.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello people.

I have just finished mounting a compact gaming/working rig.

Here goes it's config:

CPU: i7-2600k
MB: Asus P8P67-M
Case: Silversotne SUGO SG03
Cooling: corsair H50 + 2 front fans intake
RAM: 2X4gb patriot kit
VGA: XFX HD 6950
PSU: Corsair 850w modular

For those who are not familiar with the case it is SMALL, very small. Cable management (even with a modular PSU) was like hell, I almost could not close de case, and I'm pretty sure the airflow is terrible.

On top of that, I live in a very hot city. Outside temperatures are easily 30C and room temperature isn't much better depending on the time of the day.

I'm geting 40C on idle and got to 70C very easily with about 10 minutes of prime95 with a very mild OC (4.0GH). That's when the clock start to drop and rise according to the temps (I guess it's EIST kiking in).

Given the SSF case and the high room temp, I've never expected to join the 5.0+ club, but I'm still thinking the CPU temps are too high, especialy since I'm going with water cooling.

The best I could get of my i7-2600k was 3.9, and that with a 65C temp, with ocasional clock drops due to hitting 70C.

Is this as good as it gets given the SSF case + hot climate combination, or am I doing something wrong? Any help is apreciated.

PS: I know getting such small case is a big "mistake" by itself, but was the only way my wife would let me have a desktop at home. Yes, you can laugh guys, marriage has it's downsides.

PS2: Sorry for the bad english, isn't my native tongue.

I could be wrong but an h50 intaking air should get better temps than that. I would try reseating the cpu block.
Small but mighty!
