Is the temperature of my i7-14700kf within the normal range?

Just ran Cinebench R23 three times consecutively, and here are the results:

  • Multicore: 33960, Max temperature: 92°C, Power consumption: 340W
  • Single core: 2127, Max temperature: 54°C, Power consumption: 96W

For context, my idle CPU temperature is at 28°C, with a room temperature of 22°C. No overclocking and no undervoltage. All four RAM sticks are running at 6400MHz, thanks to XMP 1.0 being enabled.

Temps are good (you are using a 360mm AIO so temps are going to be good) and the cinebench scores seem to be about average for that chip.

Hello everyone,

Just wrapped up my first build today and wanted to share the specs and some performance details:

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-14700kf
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080
  • RAM: 64 GB (16 GB x 4) 6400MHz DDR5
  • Motherboard: MSI MPG Z790 EDGE Wifi
  • Case: Corsair 5000D Airflow

I've set up the cooling system with 3 top fans for exhaust, one back fan for exhaust, AIO in the front for intake, and 3 side fans for intake.

Using an AIO cooler - Arctic Freeze 360mm, I also added a Thermalright Contact Frame and applied Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut for better thermal performance.

Just ran Cinebench R23 three times consecutively, and here are the results:

  • Multicore: 33960, Max temperature: 92°C, Power consumption: 340W
  • Single core: 2127, Max temperature: 54°C, Power consumption: 96W

For context, my idle CPU temperature is at 28°C, with a room temperature of 22°C. No overclocking and no undervoltage. All four RAM sticks are running at 6400MHz, thanks to XMP 1.0 being enabled.

I'm curious to know if these Cinebench results and temperatures fall within the normal range. Any insights would be greatly appreciated!

I might be experienced, but I'm human and I do make mistakes. Expand for common PC building advice, a short bio and a list of my components and other tech. I edit my messages after sending them alot, please refresh before posting your reply. Please try to be clear and specific, you'll get a better answer. Please remember to mark solutions once you have the information you need.

 

Common build advice: 1) Buy the cheapest (well reviewed) motherboard that has the features you need. Paying more typically only gets you features you won’t use. 2) only get as much RAM as you need, getting more won’t (typically) make your PC faster. 3) While I recommend getting an NVMe drive, you don’t need to splurge for an expensive drive with DRam cache, DRamless drives are fine for gamers. 4) paying for looks is fine, just don’t break the bank. 5) Tower coolers are usually good enough, unless you go top tier Intel or plan on OCing. 6) OCing is a dead meme, you probably shouldn’t bother. 7) "Bottlenecks" rarely matter and "Future-proofing" is a myth. 8) AIOs don't noticably improve performance past 240mm.

Considering the fact that you're sucking down power roughly equivalent to a small apartment complex, that seems pretty stinkin' good. Certainly better than my setup though I also definitely have my fan/pump curve set up far more conservatively than you do.

thank you  , i just wanted to make sure the  92c temperature peek  in Cinibench test is not caused by a bad  installation of the contact frame.

thanks , well it is my first build , the installation of the contact frame had me on edge,  so i want to double check everything , but boy! those 14th-gen temperatures are a bit toastier than I anticipated (coming from 9700k)

I'm curious about pump curve, I've often read that it should always run at full speed

Then some ppl like you make a curve

What's to trust ?

14th gen is very power hungry, 340W on a 360 AIO without throttling is quite good. The thing with Cinebench is that it hits the CPU much harder than anything realistically would. So if your CPU doesn't throttle in Cinebench, it certainly won't throttle in real world loads. I came from a 9700 which would consume up to 130W while doing multiple updates at once and did 170W in prime95. My current 12700K does 170W already when starting up certain games (it even spikes to 220W sometimes) and goes to 275W under a synthetic load(OC'ed to 5GHz because I like flat numbers). I feel like we're only gonna see higher and higher power consumption with each generation unless there's something revolutionary

Kind of depends on how much heat you're trying to dump into it. I'm not trying to get rid of all that much heat (my CPU will top out at about 135-145w for a minute before it gets cut down to 90-95w), so I'm easily able to run all of my fans and my pump pretty slow. That also means my system is quieter, which is great since I can easily hear AIO pumps more often than not.

Yeah unfortunately that is the future we're stuck living in. The days of being able to cool a CPU with a wet sock (looking at you 6th gen i5's) are long gone.
