I7 9700k stock speed heat issues

So I'm having what seems to be a slight thermals issue with my non OCd i7 9700k CPU. I have reseated me Corsair H100i Pro RGB cooler to make sure this wasn't the issue. The pump is plugged into the CPU fan Header and based on other forums I set it to PWM full speed with minor improvements on heat. I read that lowering the Vcore can vastly improve temps but I cannot find that setting at all in my Asus Maximus XI hero (Wi-Fi) MB. All I can find is info on the Asus AI OC tool. Is this tool actually useful? I'd like to OC but not if I'm already having some heat issues. It will jump to the Mid 60s while playing Far Cry 5. And the Prime 95 will cook the cramp out of it with reaching 100C within a minute or 2.

I'm also running a RTX 2070 on a new 1440P 144hz monitor, but these issues were happening before my monitor came.  Is there anything I'm missing inorder to bring these temps down?

Mid-60s in gaming seems normal. 

 

Everyone says just use 26.6 because the newer version is too hot

 

I don't bother with it and just use A64 and ASUS Realbench, as well as actual workloads.

 

Try those tests and see what your temps are.

don't bother with prime, it puts my 5ghz avx oc to 105C, but i can play division 2 beta at 80% load at 75C. that game will put a 9700k on full load and run it hotter than fc5, give it a go imho, or realbench, cinebench, aida64 would work too, cinebench actually resembles max gaming load quite closely.

Thanks for the tip. I'll try cinebench this afternoon. What temps should I be aiming for?

Anything under tjmax is fine.

 

Personally, my comfort level is under 90. After my delid, none of my testing goes past 81 or so, with a mediocre cooler.

personal preference, 75-85C seems to be fine for most.

Oh wow. Maybe I have nothing to worry about. That seems high to me. I guess I should retitle the post to "how to make my comp a refrigerator?" lol.

Unless you have a runaway thermal issue, your cpu will throttle or shutdown to protect itself long before damage occurs.

 

Keep an eye on your vrm temps as well, try to keep under 100 to prolong life

Update:

So a few things, I noticed that when I updated my BIOS, it set the "boost" mode or whatever Asus calls it to enabled. Once I turned this off and ran the older version of P95 (26.6) and the other test methods you guys recommended, nothing went over 52C. Usually hovered around the 40s. And that was after about 15 minutes. So it seems like it was a mix of A. My BIOS changing without me realizing it, and B. Not using the right tools to test my CPU. Thanks for all the help guys I really appreciate it. 

Tools used:

RealTemp as my heat monitor.

 

CPUz stress test

Prime 95 version 26.6 (I did both small and large FFTs at default settings. 

Cinebench - all the tests they had on there.

RealBench.

Thanks again guys. I hope this thread helps someone else in the future.

29.4 is AVX workload and will get your CPU hotter than anything else unless you run a high-load AVX workload on a regular basis.  26.6 is more regular load, you will probably never see temps as high as that unless your games use all the cores.

 

I will say this, don't trust any one test to see what your stability level is.  I've had OCs pass an hour of AIDA64 Stress Test then fail elsewhere, and I've seen others say they've had settings fail after passing Prime95 for over 8 hours.

 

Also, don't use RealTemp or HWMonitor for temperature monitoring, if you want temperatures as accurate as you can get them (it typically reads directly from thermal monitors on the motherboard), use Hardware Info 64.
