So I just got a new setup i9 12900k new mobo msi z690 pro and a corsair h150 water cooling and honestly AMAZING god tier but I have an issue benchmarking and I'm not sure how I want to go about it. So pretty much all my temps reach high 80c too low 90c besides core 7 that reaches 100c in cinebench after 2 passes the weird thing is gaming I have no issues I usually don't go past 70c. But when I initially launch a game it'll reach up to 82c then shoot back down to 60-70c the entire time I game are these normal temps?

P.s on hwmonitor it say pcores 0-7 and e cores 0-7 the one that reaches 100c is pcore #7 and it gets 100 really quick I haven't ran a full 10 minute test becuase I didn't know if that could damage anything

Hello Dankninja,


Thank you for posting on the Intel️® communities.  


Based on the processor specifications, the T-junction of the Intel Core i9 12900k processor is 100°C. Any temperature results below or equal to that value are considered normal and expected for this unit.


About this scenario, it is important to mention that, when using third-party tools, the results shown in those applications might not be that accurate.


To make sure if actually, the cores are working properly, even though the processor is not listed as supported, install and run the Intel Extreme Tuning Utility. You might be able to strictly monitor the temperature and the clock speed in real-time and confirm if there is something wrong with the unit.


It is also important to mention that when you benchmark the component, it will be submitted into artificial stress that will make the CPU run at its Maximum. This type of stress test does not reflect the same impact as a game will present, and the workload will be higher on the stress test, that's why you may see differences in the temperatures between gaming and benchmarking.
