    Default Cpu temp

    Hey i got my new pc last week, have had it for like 8 days or so, since day one i have been experiencing high CPU temps when playing games like Black ops 2 Battlefield 3 and a f2p game called Combat arms.

    My cpu is an i7 3770 and im cooling it with an h60 corsair hydro

    my idle temps are usually around 30-35

    when im going into black ops foreksemple, the fan throttles to 1800 rpm immidiately and stays there, then the cpu is around 70-80 degrees which i know is not that bad on ivy Bridge cpus but the fan noise ticks me off!

    Anyone haveing i7 3770 who have the same problem?

    NOTE: its not the K version i have the Locked CPU

    That's fairly standard when using a stock fan, if the noise and temperature is concerning or bothering you, then you should purchase a proper heatsink/fan.

    Also, this thread is likely better off in the Tech section.

    If its the fan noise that bothers you why not change the fans?

    using a H60 something is very wrong with those temps, I can clock my i5 2500k to over 5Ghz and it sits at around 50C under load. are you sure the pump is connected to the power and on a fan header that is either linked to the CPU (my motherboard conviently had 2 CPU headers) or to a header with a decent speed, as if it isn't taking the liquid away quick enough it would be the best explination for it not cooling.

    also it may be worth checking if the radiator is actually warm when the CPU get to that temp, as if the radiator is warm you most likely have an air flow problem either with the case/fan or something else (most likely a graphics card) also getting hot and transfering heat either to the radiator or the pipes.

    The noise don't bother me personally, I have Tinnitus so it helps Just give yourself tinnitus and you're sorted, I did it by going to a Slipknot concert back in 2002, I left with my ears ringing and it never went

    Just buy silent fans if you hate the noise that much or get a cooler designed with no fans.

    He locks his to 1800rpm though.

    I don't actually get any noise on mine, it's why I had to change the crappy stock coolers off my 470's cause those sounded like someone parked a moped in the room. (to be fair they could of probably got you going as fast as well)

    Ty for all the replies, but for those who thin my fans is noisy, thats not my point, the fan which the h60 radiator is connected to makes much noise, some games it goes up to 1800 rpm and some games it kicks up to 1800 rpm only when loading a map and then settles to around 1400 which is almost silent.

    the radiator is not hot at all and for those who think its the video card, its not, im using a gforce gtx 670 windforce edition which has 3 fans on it, it never gets hot
