Normal Tempatures for New 2600k.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So I put together a Intel Build last week, featuring all the parts below. My previous comp was an AMD 1090t Black Edition, and it hovered around 29-40c idle and under load. I've always owned an AMD, and haven't really been paying attention to temps before I started coming here and understanding more about performance.

And now since I have a 2600k, it's temps scare me. They bounce constantly from 29 to 40's, idle, and sometimes get close to 60 under-load, without even being overclocked. Granted, I do have a warm room, but it's not something that would have such a large affect on my computer, would it? It gets in the low 80's, mid 70's throughout the day. My cooler is the Coolermaster V6GT.

When I first put it together, the temps were scaring me, so thinking I had seated it incorrectly, I put on the stock cooler that came with the CPU, just to check two things, cpu or cooler, and saw that the stock cooler could barely keep it below 50c. Again I stress, I haven't overclocked the cpu.

I also have noticed that the core temps can be different, sometimes even a 5 or 6 degree difference? Is this normal? Should I RMA my cpu and get a new one? Or is this normal and I'm just paranoid?

Try undervolting... you may have a low voltage cpu but your vid is setting it too high...

What would I undervolt to, and how? x_X

I apologize for the silly question, but I've no clue how to do such a thing.

temp variance is normal on these chips. takes almost nothing at idle to go from 27-28 to 35-40 for a split second. On air w/ a ven-x I was hitting ~70 at 4.6 - 75-76 at 4.8.

Oh man. That makes me feel a little better.. still abit weird about the temps though. x_X But I love the speed and performance, I just don't wanna fry the damned thing.

You're not hitting 90C+ so you won't fry it.

First off familiarize yourself with your BIOS. Secondly check out this thread it has a lot of usefull information regarding OC'ing in general with the P67 boards specifically from GB. http://www.overclock.net/intel-gener...uide-p67a.html

If your not interested in a OC right now, and just want to try and lower temps, you can lower vcore.

Upon start up push del key to enter BIOS. Go into MIT settings, then advanced voltage settings, set vcore somewhere around ~1.2v and work your way down by testing stablility with a program like Prime95 (freeware, make sure to run in blend). If your system is stable at 1.2v then you can safely move vcore down by .005v at a time until your no longer stable... At that point bump it back up a few milivolts and you should go good. Feel free to pm me if you have other questions / help.

Idle temperatures mean nothing. And 60C loads are nothing to be worried about.

Reps for the very fast answers, thank you. I'm going to try to lower the voltage.

It's lowered the temps about 6 or 7, which is good to me, but whenever I try and go any lower then your first suggested v, I blue screen upon booting.
