Temperature Issues 2

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello. 2nd build for my pc here. Actually more like a migration from my old build just to a new case. Old build:

CPU i5-6500 = SKYLAKE

CPU COOLER = CRYORIG H7

MOTHERBOARD = ASUS B150 PRO PRO GAMING/AURA

RAM = G.SKILL RIPJAWS V RED 2x4 DDR4 2400mhz (CL15)

GPU = ASUS GTX1070 STRIX 8GB

PSU = XIGMATEK X-CALIBRE 500W

CASE = IN-WIN 805 BLACK RED

HDD = WD CAVIAR BLUE 1TB

ADD ONS = CRYORIG QF120 PERFORMANCE

                   SHARKOON 12 CM RED FAN (NON-ADJUSTABLE SPEED)

                   TPLINK 300MBPS PCI-E WIFI

                   RGB LED STRIP WITH REMOTE

 

 

However now the build has changed to a more light for travel since I'll be travelling a lot. New build:

CPU: I5-8400

CPU COOLER: Cryorig C7

MOTHERBOARD = Gigabyte H370n-WIFI

RAM = G.SKILL RIPJAWS V RED 2x4 DDR4 2400mhz (CL15)

GPU = ASUS GTX1070 STRIX 8GB

PSU = Silverstone SX500-LG SFX

CASE = Fractal Design Node 202

SSD = Western Digital 2.5" Green 240GB 

SSHD = Seawater Firecuda 2.5" 1TB

 

The problem right now is as the old issue, cpu temperature problems. The obvious reason is the case and the gpu fans circling the hot air around the components. The builder said the cpu reaches 88 under load. The only I do is playing by games e.g. AAA titles and mobs. Some light Internet browsing, a couple of tabs opened. Any solutions to solve this issue? At this point I'm just gonna stick a desk fan right into the pc since my builder said he can't fit the extra fans I had from the old H7 and the QF120 due to the thickness of Gpu. Some opinions would be much appreciated. Currently the new PC is still at the shop and I'm going there to receive it as of this is written

Have you tried setting a custom core voltage instead of leaving it at Auto?

Yes, it can help lower temps. You could also try reseating the cooler in case it was improperly mounted. 88c is still pretty high. Did the builder specify what conditions would cause such temps? Is it a synthetic stress test on both the cpu and graphics card?

It technically isn't undervolting as you are just setting voltages bit over what Intel's stock is. Like 1.15-1.2V is enough where automatic would raise voltages to 1.25-1.35V, Have you tested temps yourself? its seems bit odd for CPU to go that high.
