7700K potentially abnormal temps? (NH-D15)

1 minute ago, Cotroneo said:

It used to be in the other slot when I used a Cryorig H5, but with the D15, it's an issue of clearence. Speaking of the H5, I had better temps with that, but I wound up using it in a build for a buddy. So it honestly might be like what others have said about the paste drying up, or it not being seated properly now that you guys reminded me of the H5.

You shouldnt have a clearance issue with that cooler, it'll be tight but the card will fit in the top slot. It has higher bandwidth than the lower one. - I have the same cooler

 

Take a try at reseating that big boy then, use a perfect amount of paste and make sure the thing is tight

So my computer by no means has weak cooling, and the picture will show my current cooling setup:

2x bottom intake (The red AF 140mm has been replaced with a matching NF-A14 like the one next to it.

The 2 front intake and the rear exhaust are all Noctua NF-A14 iPPC 2000 Industrial fans, and of course the cooler is the distinct, D15. :P

 

My issue is that the CPU - at stock speeds - will teach temps of 85 degrees when playing games, and temps of 75 with virus scans. I'm never below 42 degrees, no matter what. My bedroom is a nice 'hot' 66 degrees (before I play games), if that would contribute to it at all. 

 

Also, my graphics card has no issues temperature wise.

Try and remount the cooler, idle temps should definitely be lower with that cooler

 

Why is your graphics card in the lower second pcie slot?

Thermal paste dried up probably. Also make sure you give some omph when screwing the cooler down, low mounting pressure also gives poor thermals.


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

Is it delidded? Those temps are normal for a 7700k no matter what cooler you use since the problem lies between the CPU itself and its IHS

 

a friend has the same CPU and it's a toaster, according to Intel the temperature are inside the "normal operating range" so...

Not delidded, and I already was bummed out to find out after I got the 7700K that the temps were toasty. I had better temps in the first iteration of my setup, which only had one bottom intake (the red AF 140), an NF-A14 as  rear exhaust, the 2x fractal fans as front intake and a Cryorig H5 Ultimate. Not bad cooling, but it's just strange that the cooling was better back then. I would assume it would be too much fans now, but it doesn't change the fact that my GPU temps have never changed.

If it works for you, then it definitely is a case of me being a big wuss, fearing that if anything gets within a CM of the card, it'll kill it. I'll definitely try reseating it.  :}

I nearly shit myself when I realized how close it was to the backplate of my card, but alls good

Volts? Your CPU is probably using way more volts than it really needs. Disable any auto-OC feature and set manual voltages. That should fix things. If you are still experiencing issues, remount cooler.

 

PS. When you use 2 temperature system in single post, its really confusing. 66C room temp is like Japanese sauna.
