So went back and did this again, same thing temp spikes.

Guess I got lucky with this one, ran ibt another round (10 passes) while @4.5 and max temp was 84C.

I really don't understand this but after hours of trying over and over it is what it is.

Heck I get over 90C within 3 seconds at 4500 with a hyper 212 EVO running IBT. Doug there has to be something wrong in your mounting hardware or the cooler interferes with something that's not real obvious.

Yeah something isn't right with it. I gave it several tries, spent a few hours even changing my paste method to no avail. I am impressed I can run the stock cooler@ 4.5 with decent temps. When I game it does not go higher than 67C. I'm going to get a water cooler soon. I hope I have better luck with it

You are talking about one like this as stock cooler?


With the temps you are getting I think going liquid will be a waste maybe and not get lower. But I have been wrong and often so.

There's no such thing as waste if it's reducing temps

@Doug
If you're getting temps like that with a stock cooler then water is likely bring it down a good amount.
As an example my 8350 has never been over 54c with voltages upto 1.51v with a H100i and the other closed loop coolers are not much different. Some are slightly better and some slightly worse depending on luck of the draw i think.

I was thinking Doug's readings were all wrong, and now I'm thinking maybe he just has a good CPU that requires very little voltage.

But if a stock, crappy Intel cooler keeps a i7 at 82C running IBT, I really doubt liquid would be any better. If Doug was building a custom WC system, that would be a horse of a different color. Intels may use lower volts than AMD, but they pour on the hear faster in my experience.

Feeling chipper I hope Ryan.

It would be better though, As you have said the "crappy Intel cooler" has his temps at a good level. So a better cooler will cool it more. A better cooler can't cool it the same or worse otherwise it wouldn't be better Would it be worth it though is a different matter.
There isn't much i know when it comes to Intel though.
