FilthyPhill Posted October 6, 2010 Share Posted October 6, 2010 Hello all, I had a few questions about my new H70 and temps I am seeing so far. I have my H70 setup in a push pull config with very nice noiseblocker fans. Idle temps are usually in the low 40c range and full load are between 60-65c on stock clocks and voltages. Ambient temps are usually between 70-80F . My questions is, I saw these same temps with my old E8600 clocked at 4.0GHZ with a TRUE in push pull with Noctua FP-12's. is the I7 950 a hotter running chip? or should I being seeing temps lower then this on stock clocks and voltages? Possibly I am doing something wrong, Air is being exhusted out the back and not into the case. I see the corsair recommends the H70 to exhaust into the case. I also noticed the pump is running about 700 RPM, should it be running faster then this? possibly the fan header I am using on my mob is not supply enough power to it? Also I noticed ambient temps have a huge impact on my CPU temps, one night it got into the low 60F range and temps dropped 5+C idel and load. Possibly its an airflow issue, but this I would be very surprised of I am moving alot of air in my case. I am new to I7 all together and this type of cooler so I am not really sure what type of temps I should be seeing, I was hoping for lower idle and loads temps I have to be honest. I have not even started to OC yet, but seeing the temps I have now, I am not sure I want to even try and 65C on full load is as hot as I want to go... Any help or information would be appreciated, if there is any more info I can provide please let me know. Thanks, Filthy~ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
