Is my i7 950 running average temps

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm using thermaltake bigwater 120x1 rad that came with my thermaltake Xaser VI case + then i modded it so that the rad is sitting at the bottom of the case, using push & pull fan effect, as i hated where it was situated in the top drive bay, that wasn't easy to clean, either way i7 950 @ stock speed is still getting 36 degrees at idle & 65 using Prime95 for 30 min.

I also tryed repasting the CPU & different loop setups,
Im using Res->Pump->Rad->CPU->Res setup.

I've tryed googling average temps but can't seem to get a comfortable answer.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Your temps are fine, 65 is not bad with prime 95. From what I have read your cpu has a max temp of 85c. Hope this helps. Nice setup.

Well not exactly.....

His CPU has a tJmax around 95 - 100c, that is where Intel will force it to throttle down the multi to keep from damaging.

So we can assume that if they felt it would be damaged at 65 - 80 - 85 -90c they would set the tJmax there...

That being said you are correct in the sense that most around here will recommend a max of 80 - 85c for 24/7 use...

@Kex, your load temps seem high to me, but not surprisingly high. The TT BW is not really a great setup, specially with a 120 rad. No Offense, just letting you know...
However 65c load with HT is ok, you have some room to play. Overclock some and keep it under 80c and you should be ok..

10acjed yes i fell that my temps are a bit high aswell, & yeah TT BW is a low end rad,
& i dont know or like the looks of the corsair H50/70's either there only single rad to,
i'd say a custom setup is much better & at leat 2x120 rad at min.
I know this is a different subject but do you know of some good settings to OC my CPU to 4-4.2GHz like Disabling Speedstep.ect

You should PM a moderater and have them merge the two threads...

No big deal, just 2 threads on the same topic is frowned upon...

BTW: Welcome to oc.net

With your setup 4.0+ will be tough, at least til you get better cooling.

Here are the basics

Disable:
SpeedStep
Turbo Mode
C1E
EIST

Set voltages manually, set ram timings manually.

Start raising the bclk about 5 - 10 at a time, test in between. When its unstable raise voltages and test again til stable..

Voltages.
vcore - 1.30 - 1.35
vtt - 1.30
QPI - 1.30
Mem - default
Make sure ram is at or under default speed. Overclock that after the cpu is maxed...
