Hey Guys,

New to the forums and new to overclocking.

I just built my system and I am wondering if I should be getting better temperatures with my corsair H60 and OC 2600k.

With a 4.8GHZ overclock at 1.4v, an ambient temperature of 23C (~74F), and a push/pull intake setup on the H60, I am averaging 75C after a full hour of prime95 torture. The hottest it ever gets is 78C. I understand there are different definitions of "full load" so I am a bit confused by all the temps people are posting. Thanks for your time and patience.

Prime 95 is "full load". Anything that uses 100% of the CPU is full.

Can't comment on your temps though. I use a different cooler and much less voltage.

those temps seem about right to me

My airflow is a bit jacked up because I wasnt sure if I should do an intake or exhaust setup with the H60. I have one 140mm intake in front, two 120mm exhausts on top, and the H60 blowing air in from the back.

You guys are awesome. I was just looking for a little reassurance that I didn't do anything wrong during my first build (in a long time). I haven't spent this much money on something in a LONG time so it drives me nuts to think that something may not be PERFECT. Thanks to everyone who provided input.

1.4v is usually what 4.8 needs to run at for most peoples chips. If you can lower the voltages your temps will also be lowered. 4.8+ clocks start to require a lot of volts.

You will get about 5-10c lower with the D14 depending on your ambient, i just switched out my H70 for the D14 and i was extremely surprised. Doesn't break 70 on load now. Mind you i only bench at night, stressing in the day in New Mexico is pretty dumb ambient way too high. Those are good temps for the H70 but you can get better with the D14 or comparable air solutions.

Thanks for the tip. I don't think I will be OCing any higher than 4.8ghz so the H60 suits my needs just fine for now. If I decide to try and squeeze a little more out of the 2600k, I will definitely look into the D14.

If you wanna try and squeeze a bit more out of it try a rasa kit with an rx rad. You will get better results. Especially with the temps you will experience at 5.0
