30C in Idle on i7-8700K with stock settings, just XMP normal?

 Share

Hi Guys,

I was just wondering if 30C in Idle without deliding the CPU and stock settings, just XMP on and as i see in CPu Z running at 4,5 Ghz in Idle and at 0,912 - 0,960 V at 900  RPM with my Be quiet silenjt loop 360 is normal.

because if not , might i switch the thermal paste?! because then i would need another bracket to hold the block of my watercooler because it somewhat is broken and can not be remounted , for the moment it is holding on because onbly in one corner it broke , but it would be a pain in the ass to remount it so i would like to buy a new one , do you guys know where i could buy one then? 

 

Btw im sorry for my somewhat bad English :D 

 

Edit: the back bracket , so i mean the braket that hoild on to the back of the MB

30C at idle is a good temperature, since going below ambient means condensation can occur which is obviously not good.

 

What is your CPU temperature under load?

im using the 8700K with a decent Cooler Master air cooler with a 120mm fan.
idle = 30-40C
Gaming (overwatch most of teh time) = +-50C

What is your CPU temperature under load?

What do people call under load on this forum?
For me it would be video encoding wich gets my CPU up to 90C.
Cause can we call gaming "a load" for the 8700K?

I am here to learn, please correct me if im wrong or you see me putting bs on your screen!

I and many others consider "under load" an AIDA64 stress test where the CPU is stressed.

Just uninstall AIDA64 and download it again, that's what I always do.

Prime95 is very taxing on the CPU, it's not nearly as realistic as AIDA64.

Then use Prime95 and see what temps are under full load

hey, which thermal paste would you put on your CPU between heatsink and cooler? rn i have artic mx-2 or is thermal grizzly better? ( no liquid metal on there because it would be a pain in the ass to get it off one time or is that also suchg a huge difference between normal thermal paste and liquid metal?) but between heatsink and die im am looking forward to put thermal grizzly conductonaut. that should be good enough shouldnt it?

What are you trying to accomplish?  Your temperatures are on relative to your room, but in general it's nothing to worry about.  If you are trying to get them lower for over clocking potential, then start seeing where they go when you ramp up clocks and voltage.  At that point, you can start trying various solutions.  Otherwise, you are just wasting your time chasing something that doesn't matter.
