i7 9700k W/ Noctis NH-D15

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all, 

 

I've recently brought a Noctua NH-D15, while idle my temps minimum on all cores are around 41-43 on my 9700k inside a Noctis 450. They bounce around though. With an average of around 50 on each core. 

 

Are these temps considered high for this setup?

idle temps mean nothing, try full load temps


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

Id say it's around 30 degrees Celsius.

Then yeah they are quite normal with that high room temp.

What are the temps under full load?

With 30C ambient temp, 40C idle with NH-D15 is normal, but how about your core voltage?

 

My system, ITX case with limited front vents, i7 8700K at 4.7GHz with 1.17v core voltage under NH-D15 and intake fans speed at 1500 rpm, around 30-32C ambient temps my CPU idle temps 38-41C. I downclock it as the climate here is much hotter than usual.. It was OCed at 4.9GHz with 1.31v and higher intake fans speed..

Around 70 for most cores.

Seems fine and normal if you're using default motherboard settings.

That's using the CPU stress test on adia64. Which I've seen others say their peaks are 55-65.

Your profile specs mention a Asus Strix z390-E for the motherboard. If you're using default motherboard settings, Asus Multicore Enhancement is enabled which is effectively an auto oc. With core voltage left at Auto, core voltage would be pretty high and would easily explain your higher temps. 

I recommend turning off MCE and setting core voltage manually to oc and for lower temps.

Thanks, good to know. I'll try disabling it when I'm home and post temps afterwards.

I use ASUS Realbech to measure my system, because many people say this is the most similar to real world uses, and not too abusive like the other synthetic test.

 

For your information and idea, this is my result of 8 hours stress test on my system with ASUS Realbench,

 

i7 8700K manually OC @ 4.7GHz, locked at 1.17v all core, AVX=0,

NH-D15, 2x140mm intake fans,

The case is Phanteks Evolv ITX which known to have bad airflow because the front vents are too tight to allow good airflow,

Ambient temps 27C, done over night.

 

1739513671_8hrStressTest.thumb.png.04d7eb5bcfdb9b13000b076aebe300a2.png

 

In most reviews, Phanteks Evolv ITX case can't cool the GPU well enough, and shows that the GPU temps mostly similar with the CPU temps, while my case is the opposite, my GPU max temp is 10C cooler than the CPU max temps on 100% load.. I did some tweaks to my case to get this opposite results vs most reviews out there, wich is sweet..

It was initially a random idea, then I think "why not?" and proceed, and the results are great, I'm glad that I did this improvisation on the chassis to improve the GPU temps. No mods, no frame cuttings. Just simple tweaks..

 

I will delid this CPU when my deliding tool arrived to prevent overheat when the climate become unfriendly hot..

I disabled multicore enhancement and ran a stress test with Adia64. Only for 20 minutes just trying to have an idea of temps. 

 

I ended up with the following:

Cores 1-4 averaging at 65-66.

Cores 5-8 at 68-70.

 

Even in bios my temps were around 40-45 after just turning my PC on. 

 

Edit: 50 minutes now, cores 1-4 average 67, 5-8 average 69. Core 4 sitting at 72 and core 7 at 66.

Honestly your temps were fine even with MCE on.

I took off the cooler and installed it again, turned of MCE, and adjusted my fan curve a little. Now temps average from 37-43.

Bad mounting happens, glad that it works as expected now.
