First Specs.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
Gigabyte Z77X-D3H
8GB ddr RAM 1600mhz
i5-3570K

I'm thinking this is a Thermal Paste Issue, being that maybe its not spead enough...(I did the grain of rice in the middle, and installed the cooler, letting the cooler spread it)

Stock Clocks, with reduced Turbo to 36.

Idle - 35-39c (screen shot MIN values is after browsing and varies A LOT)
IBT - 51-57c (This is testing using the Turbo clock of 3.6ghz)



To me, these temps are quite high....I would expect these temps at something around 4.3ghz or something....

The last thing I want to do, is the whole delidding process.......but redoing the Termal Paste is looking likely

Look up IVB delid. You'll find out why they run so hot.

If you don't really feel like looking it up or TLDR, IVB was constructed using an inferior TIM and SB was constructed using silver onto the lid. People delid it, replace the time with something like compound pro/ultra and there's a drop of ~20°C or more

I knew they were hot.......but really ........... this is just insane for heat...

I really want to get the Turbo Overclocked to 4.2ghz, so I benefit from the speed when I need it........but 57c @ 3.6ghz is just MAD

That doesn't seem too bad. What is the ambient air temp? Did you run this test before the 212? if so, what were the temps?

Insane? 60c? That's nothing

My 2500K will sometimes ding 85c when I'm running prime or ibt (overclocked, that is..), and it's under water

Looks normal to me considering that you are running IBT and Ivy.

I didnt try the stock Intel Heatsink...

I bought the Processor Only......having previous knowledge that IB runs hot, I felt that what was the point in buying something to keep it in the box.......result was 212 Evo straight on that bad boy...

I'm in the UK so ambient temp is cold.....lol. honestly though I dont know....

Might be a noob question......but how can I physically set my 212 Evo's fan speed to 2000rpm...all the time.

I'm guessing the mobo has some kind of software for setting fan-profiles, voltages, etc, you could try that. If not, just do it in the BIOS. Might be a bit more tricky, but should get the job done.

I think your result is a bit odd and that you're already on a Hyper 212 Evo!
Here's my friend's computer configuration :
Xigmatek Asgard 382
i5-3470 on a Asrock B75M-DGS
Stock cooler
HD7770 Vapor-X (Max temp 50+C in Kombustor)

28C ambient 60C MAX p95

Perhaps got a lucky chip? Don't know. But i'm pretty sure it's normal for IVB ... though this isn't normal anymore and you're in UK
Did you ensure proper contact with the chip?

Oh and if you want full 2000rpm you can either 1) Set fan curves 2) Set the bios to not control the fan and instead leave it at full PWM 3) cut off the PWM wire and tape it up

Those temps arent that bad for air honestly. My i7 runs just a bit hotter then that @ 4.5 underwater though lol. I found no reason to delid since I don't fold or bench. Gaming never go's over 60 so that's fine.

I'm just thinking, If i hadnt downclocked the turbo and just left it at 3.8ghz obviously my temps could be 60+

Considering 57c is an IBT temp, I'll be good for my uses (average user with gaming)

If I keep thinking this chip is too hot though, I'll be using MX2 or MX4 paste and removing the CM Paste which I got with the cooler.

If I just drop the vCore this will help......but some advice on this would be great.....(I know my AMD rig inside out but Intel is beyond me ATM)

Yea replacing that CM paste will probably lower the temps a bit. If you really want to lower temps going to have to,

A) Delid

B) Water loop

I feel safe on intel until I see 90c lol. (Even though I never go over 65)

Keep in mind that the TJmax for that chip (where it starts throttling) is 105C. So you are a long way from having to worry about temps. Anything in the 70s is fine during IBT/Prime95, and temps into the low 80s are still considered acceptable. The 50s is nothing.

These chips can take a lot of heat, especially if you are used to AMD's lower limits.

I say keep the turbo on where it originally was or even OC it to at least 4.0, just keep monitoring the temps until it is hovering upper 70s in IBT. You won't be reaching those temps anyway in your day-to-day usage

Your temps look extremely normal man. Keep an eye on it. Also water cooling is always the best way to go because these processors get hot extremely compared to the older sockets we had the past year.

As long your temps stay below 70c you'd be fine.

I recommend self sealed liquid coolers. They do their job well.

I do remember reading somewhere about the processor being able to handle lots of heat.....

I think what had me worried a little is that previously i had AMD and well temps on that never should go above 65c........ Lesson Learnt I think,

If the mid 70's is still fine and even 80's maybe I will up the turbo clock......

Is it really that easy to overclock, just increase the Turbo 36 upto 40 or 42.....Leaving the rest of the settings on auto...... I like the fact that it'll only use the turbo clock when stressed enough to need it

I used a 212 evo for a few months before switching to a h100. My temps with the 212evo @ an overclock of 4.3 was really my most justifiable max for that cooler But for the money that is the best cooler out there no questions asked the 212 evo is a serious bang for your buck......just saying.

This is my i5 3570K (Noctua D14, Sabertooth Z77). On stock clocks.


Seems my one runs hotter than yours. I'd say it's fine.

And then I can overclock it to 4.5GHz to 99C (I know it's not good

) and it passes IBT and Prime for a day.
I usually run it at 4.2GHz which at max load goes up to around 70-80.
