Is my 2500k temp ok?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have 2500k and P8P67 Pro, and I'm running it at stock speed with intel stock HSF, basically I just set the load default at the bios so it should run everything at stock.

Went into Win7, at idle Cpu-Z shows I'm running at 1600MHz(Multiple X16, 0.988V), speedstep if I'm not mistaken, idle temp is around 40C. Run Prime95 and Cpu-Z shows core speed at 3400MHz(Multiple X34), but Voltage went up to 1.184V, load temp is around 70C.

Is there any thing wrong with this 2500K? The default voltage for this 2500k is 1.184V? I heard the original default voltage for 2500k is 0.988V, but I only see this voltage at idle but not at load. Anyone?

My motherboard also gives my processor a little extra voltage at load, I believe there is a way to turn that off so your bios voltage settings will stay consistent regardless if idle or at load but I have never changed it. On the other note, since you're using the stock intel cooler those temps seem normal. My advice, invest in a decent cooler even something in the $30 range will work wonders over the stock intel cooler.
