i7-7700k Temperature spikes on even loads.

Jump to solution

Not even a week ago I purchased a 7700k and instantly was blown by its performance. It was only after a sudden shutdown that I realized the temps were spiking like crazy. I have read over forums and many saying its common but even under Aida 64 extreme test, (the benchmark should produce consistent temperatures) and instead, temps are spiking from 50-90 ºC. I seriously don't find this normal, maybe there's something wrong?. For anyone asking, I have a Corsair 110i gt, but something I'm seeing which is unusual is that the pump temperature is very low, normally under 40ºC. I've installed this same cooler on a Ryzen 5 1600x and an i5 4690k and both had stable/ low temps so I'm installing it correctly. As of now, I'm worrying that the TIM is not working properly. Lastly, I would like to add that I have re-mounted the cooler twice and changed the paste twice as well, nothing helps. Please someone help me, I'm going crazy...

Specs:

CPU - i7-7700k stock

Motherboard - Asus Z270 Prime-A

CPU Cooler - Corsair H110i GT

Hello Alex_Marimon,

Thank you for joining the Processors Community. I am sorry to hear you are having issues with this matter.

The behavior you are experiencing is expected, Intel investigated the issue and determined that the temperature variation is normal. You can find the official answer for this matter here: https://communities.intel.com/message/471425# 471425 https://communities.intel.com/message/471425# 471425

Thank you very much for the fast reply. I am happy to hear that this behavior is normal for this CPU as it will now allow me to go about without worrying. I have to add that I also managed to lower temperatures by lowering vcore voltages as the auto voltage ranges were way too high for the frequency. Motherboard manufacturers should adjust these to lower temps.

Thanks and happy new year,

Alex
