8700K 5ghz temps ?

Hi all,

recently bought the 8700k and managed to get it to the 5ghz following a youtube guide and i have not had any crashes of any kind but I was wondering if someone can shed some light on the temps im getting and are they normal and safe.

on idle - 33-43c
on load - 65-75c

on various of games and bench marks

using coolermaster master air.

Do you think I could push this even further to 5.1 or even 5.2ghz if so would there be any major benefit vs performance?

thanks all,

PC specs

Gigabyte Z370 Gamer 5
GTX 1080 overclocked 2011ghz (don't quote me on that, as not at the PC)
16GB DDR 3200Mhz
Intel 8700k 5ghz (Not been delidded)

  1. Not bad for air cooling. Have you run any type of stress testing to see if you are stable?

  2. Hi Ryan, stressed tested it last night with firestrike and timespy with no problems so that part makes me happy but not tried any others stress tests yet

  3. 5.2Ghz is a 4% increase over 5.0, you are not actually going to notice it in real world performance. You can try for 5.1 or 5.2 but don't stress if you run into problems. As long as temps stay under 80c you are doing good.

    What was your Firestrike overall score with that 8700K and GTX1080?

  5. Thanks sizzling, ill give it a go and see what i get and let you guys know tonight :).

    Ryan,

    not sure if this will work https://www.3dmark.com/fs/14063747

    but it read 21096, which is pretty good right?

    thanks

  6. Personally, I would stick with that OC at those temps. I'm currently running mine at just over 5.2GHz and I really don't notice a difference over the 5.0 OC. Don't get wrong, the benchmark scores are higher but the actual perceived difference is unnoticeable. If you absolutely feel the need to run at 5.2 the you need to de-lid. My temps are about the same as yours right now.

  7. Wow your Physics score is 22,237, that 6 core CPU is paying off big time! :)

    I am not going to lie, I can never understand the results you get from 3Dmark benchmarks if they are ever good or not. May I ask how you understand them?

  9. Your Physics score is really what your CPU has handled during the test, and the Graphics score is the full value of what the Graphics card did, exactly how Futuremark decides on an overall score, I don't know either. But my curiosity was regarding what overall processing difference the 6 core 8700K was bringing to the table.
