i7 2600k Temps

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I just got my computer set up and I started to do some tweaking with my processor. It seems like I can get up to x50 multi but the temps are just way to high. Right now as we speak I've been running prime95 at 4.7Ghz for the last 10 minutes and my temperatures are about ~75C. For 5Ghz it gets up to 85C where I have it programed to shut down if it gets past that. Any idea how to reduce temps? I am using a Therm SA(OCZ Freeze) with a Silverstone FT02 case.

Those temps seems right to me. Most people that run at 50x multi either dont care that prime load takes them to 80C+ (mostly d14s and silver arrows), or put the chip under water to save 10-15C in temps.

Well at 4.8(1.4v) I'm hitting about 80C, highest was 84C on Core 2.

At 4.6 I'm getting 70C load. I've been reading others at 4.8 with silverarrow getting around the same temps. Seems like mine is a bit high. Anyone else like to comment on how to reduce my temps...?

Thanks

Getting about 58-60C at 4.6GHz currently at 1.3v. If I run 4.8 my 2600K runs between 65-67C or so at 1.36-1.37v.

How much vcore are you using?

well it would be safe to say that maybe you got a bit unlucky with the chip. some people require a minimum of 1.5 to do 5ghz, my chip is stable at 5.1ghz with 1.472. What you must remeber is that every chip is different. I personally keep the temps 70 or under for 24/7 use. Unless you go to water or better air cooling (if its available) than im afraid that is what you will have to settle for.

You could maybe try using better TIM (ocz freeze/ic7/shin etsu) and even reseating the cooler could make a substantial difference. Goodluck

I'm doing a 4.8(1.385v) prime run at the moment, all cores for the most part are staying under 70C except for core #2 which likes to jump every once in awhile. If it turns out that I have a high temp, low overclock chip then I may play the lottery again with newegg and try another one. One thing that I have noticed with these batches though is that some people will be hard walled at 4.6Ghz with one and another with the same batch will easily achieve 5+Ghz at a lower voltage. Just don't wanna play my cards and get something that performs worse than what I have now.

Edit:4.8(1.385) failed, hmmm

My temps so far:

4.2Ghz, stock voltage

Idle: ~36C
Load: ~63C

Thats seem about reasonable on air cooling? It seems to be a little low relative to some suggestions, and high compared to others. both temps were judged off of Asus's AI Suite Monitor, and the load temp was taken during a Prime95 blend, and it stayed consistent throughout the 6 hours I had it up.

You say this but I went into watercooling for the first time and am having trouble getting those temps. When I do prime95, I easily hit 78C which some guy posted with his Cooler Master V8 air cooler. Keep in mind I've got a XSPC Rasa and RX360 radiator with some stock fans. Even then that is a pretty decent setup yet I'm getting temps that I normally would if I had gone air-cooling.
